Because she know that my reputation precedes me and people watch me on TV
That's exactly why I often get burned

from Drake – Try Harder Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

His mom knows he’s really as good as his reputation says he is. He is a polite young man and a good role model for those who watched him on the show Degrassi. However that’s a double edge sword because people often judge him in the music world prematurely because of that persona, saying he’s too nice and soft and too adjusted too TV.
