I done got some contacts and threw the glasses away
The time it took me to get cool was a massive delay
Drake throws in some wordplay while discussing his rise to fame.
He wore glasses when he was younger, but now he wears contacts; one of the reasons people don’t remember him, as he stated in the previous line.
He’s also gotten connections (contacts), and no longer needs to look at fame through glasses, since he’s close enough to where he doesn’t need them. Although he admits it took awhile for him to get where he is.
