The Euphrates River’s dry so you know it’s real

from Ab-Soul – Nibiru Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Tigris and Euphrates rivers are located in Mesopotamia which is considered to be the “Cradle of Civilization”, where all things started. This is also another a Drake reference, this time to “Free Spirit” — to go out on a limb, the river being dry signifies an end to our Earthly paradise

Additionally in Revelations, the drying up of Euphrates River is one of the signs of the apocalypse; “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.”
