Used to make us proud -- we had dreams of getting bigger, man
Loved you until now, but now I'm the nigga, man
You keep talking that, "You was this and you had this"
And you deserve some fucking credit how did anyone forget it
We'll Be Fine by Drake (Ft. Birdman)

This kind description of a former friend turned jealous hater is all over Take Care, and serves as one of the album’s central themes.

In the Presidential -- do you like your new room? We'll Be Fine by Drake (Ft. Birdman)

A hotel’s “Presidential suite” has been the meme resting place for rappers at least since Jay-Z’s 1996 nod to his “residential for the weekend”.

I buy the shots Underground Kings by Drake

Unless the ladies buy drinks for him

This line a double entendre —
There is the obvious meaning that Drake will buy shots for a girl that is willing to fuck him.

He is also saying that if you fuck with Drake, he’ll hire a hitman (buy the shots) to kill you.

And these niggas got them diamonds glowing in they mouth
And they rockin' furs like it's snowing in the south
And every pretty girl tell me that's the shit that she like
So why am I in class if this is who I'm trying to be like
Underground Kings by Drake

As a youth in Memphis, Drake sees that rappers' style — in this case their diamond grills:

and propensity to wear pimp-like fur coats (UGK’s Chad “Pimp C” Butler, below) gets them attention from ladies. Drake, no dummy, realizes that copping their steez is a much more efficient way to get laid than going to school, getting good grades, etc.

BONUS


Notice Drake’s emphasis on some of the words in the final line in this explanation: “Y… M… C… M… B”

Stone Mountain, you raised me well
I’m stared at by Confederates but hard as hell
That Power by Childish Gambino

Referencing Stone Mountain, Georgia, where CG grew up, which is also famous for this carving:

Which features Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and Robert E. Lee, all who were central figures in the Confederacy

Since the carving is made in granite, the men’s stares are literally hard

It also means that because of his upbringing, being hated on by detractors and dissenters (like the Confederates did to the Union) doesn’t phase him anymore, so he continues to go H·A·M

With fame on my mind, my girl on my nerves
I was pushing myself to get something that I deserve
That was back in the days, Acura days
Underground Kings by Drake

A quick capsule description of his life and mindstate before signing with Wayne — a hunger for fame, hangups about girls. Um, how is that different than now?

Drake’s first car was in fact an Acura TSX.

An a-typical Drake talks about his decision to drive an Acura. Those other cars are just too “pretentious”. But hey, if you have the money, then feel free! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zjLZPpRpWg

I'm pouring out my heart to be that nigga in the city
Homies in the hood already saying I done did it
Power by Juvenile (Ft. Rick Ross)

It’s true. Juvie has been “that nigga” in New Orleans at least since 1991’s classic collaboration with D.J. Jimi, “Bounce (for the Juvenile)”
