Can someone please tell Drake it’s about 6 minutes?!
No intro will ever be the same…
It could still be referencing “Memento”. In the movie Leonard, the main character, keeps telling about his “condition” anterograde amnesia) every time he meets somebody, since he doesn’t ever remember meeting the person. Drake leaves the feeling that he didn’t remember that he already asked the question.

A “handle” is also a term used in NASDAQ: it’s the whole-dollar price that is actually offered/acquired for a stock trade. This is about big business and all kinds of currency: dollar, yen, etc. If Jay Z was a stock, his handle would have to be International Hov. He’s getting money everywhere!
International Hov is one of Jay’s many monikers as he’s made clear on several songs before:
Ever since he got famous, he is gone most of the time, even missing important events — special occasions, family birthdays, graduations etc. When he does go back home, he will be on his worst behavior because of how being famous changed him. This adds to the theme of the album, nothing was the same.
