You know its real when your latest nights are your greatest nights
The sun is up when you get home, that's just a way of life
A pun on “latest” here, as in “most recent” and in terms of time
Most artists do their most creative work during the wee-hours of morning…so while most Cats are sleeping 11-7, Drake (or the intended “you”) is up grinding and creating dope lyrics.
