And steal your mother's debit cards so you maintain an image
And ride around in overpriced rental cars that ain't tinted

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


Drake, pre-rap stardom, tried to create the appearance of being a baller to people in his town by doing things such as leasing a Rolls Royce before he had an apartment of his own

Drake leased his Rolls Royce without tint so that everyone could see him on these expensive vehicles. He did this to create an image that he was a baller.

He mentions the tint of the windows because you can’t tint the windows of a rental car.
