I used to brag about it to my friends
And now I'm feeling like all of these niggas cutthroat
Club Paradise by Drake

When Drake was on the up and up, famous rappers would call him to chit-chat with him, see how he was doing and guide him on his rise to fame.

The problem is, you dudes treat the one that you loving
With the same respect that you treat the one that you humping
'03 Bonnie & Clyde by Jay Z (Ft. Beyoncé)

Understand I’m still the same old G, nigga
I know the difference between a bitch and a B, nigga
