Felt like the initiation, a reality living in the matrix
In the movie The Matrix, Neo is initiated into the real world by choosing the red pill. Kendrick sees Drake and learns about living with fame from the encounter.
He felt like Drake was bringing him into the game. Into the higher part of the game and bringing him out of the underground. Now, his dreams are coming true so he is no longer living reality, he is in the matrix of life.
Perhaps a reference to the Weeknd’s “Initiation.”
