Draped up, dripped out, know what I'm talking 'bout
Draped up = the windows on the car he’s driving have tints so opaque that they resemble drapes.
Dripped out = his whip has a coat of candy paint so fresh that it’s dripping off the frame.
Drake is quoting a popular DJ Screw track off of the 3 N Tha Mornin' Part ll tape by Lil Keke called Pimp the Pen.
The first lines of the song read “Draped up dripped out know what I’m talking bout / 3 in the morning, get the gat out the stash spot”
Drake isn’t exactly known for being a gangster so it’s natural that he’d change the last part of the bar; ironically, he talks about “stayin' G ‘til the end” two lines later. Great example of poetic license here, or is it self-contradiction?
