All my exes live in Texas like I'm George Strait

from Drake (Ft. Lil Wayne) – HYFR Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Referencing legendary country music artist “King George” Strait and his 1987 single “All My Ex’s Live in Texas”.

Strait has sold more than 68.5 million albums in the United States and his certifications from the RIAA include 13 multi-platinum, 33 platinum, and 38 gold albums.

According to the RIAA, George Strait is the 12th best-selling album artist in the U.S.; Drake clearly aspires to have such stats, can you blame him?

While making a reference to George Strait’s classic hit, Drake could also be speaking of all his ex’s that he’s accumulated in his days hanging out in Houston; alternatively, Drizzy might be using a little homophone wordplay (“Texas” and “texts,” of course)

Of course Drake is always mentioning the great state of Texas, with songs like 9AM in Dallas and HoustonlantaVegas, the artist is no stranger to the area.
