I SEE YOU IN THE SHADOW
IN A OCEAN WITHOUT A PADDLE

from The-Dream – Form of Flattery Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s referring to an unnamed artist “in the shadow” (sounds like the Weeknd) that is hyped up and gaining a lot of attention, but the fact that he’s “without a paddle” means that he didn’t get there by himself and somebody else (*cough Drake) paddled for him.
