I told my story, and made history

from Drake (Ft. The Weeknd) – Crew Love Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Drake started telling his life story, then became a world-famous rapper selling out arenas. That, in turn, made ‘history’, because he’s such a huge performer and ‘his story’ because he changed the lives (stories) of his crew members as well. This line is, as we pointed out, the first real groaner of the record.

Drake’s experiences are the basis of imitation by other rappers, i.e., he made it cool to be vulnerable/introspective.

Also, Drake is referring to the “realest nigga” in the previous line saying that Drake’s own story was so relatable to the “realest niggas” story that it also made it “HIS-STORY.”

Used in the same way that Michael Jackson did for his greatest album, “HIStory”. His story as in Drake’s story, and history as stuff for the record books.
