Drake’s back at it, whining about his haters, on his newest track to hit Soundcloud.
In 5AM in Toronto, he spends three and a half minutes complaining about the general lack of respect he gets on the daily.
Apparently not destined for his forthcoming album, the synth-heavy track features an endless litany of observations framed around what the Toronto-born rapper thinks about while he lays in bed.
Kicking off with a gripe about how underestimated he is, he quickly segues into a breakdown of his stellar music career thus far.
You underestimated greatly
Most number ones ever, how long did it really take me
The part I love most is they need me more than they hate me
So they never take shots, I got everybody on safety
5AM in Toronto

After the obligatory self-comparison to Frank Sinatra, he moves on to an unsubtle mention of “summer allegations”, demonstrating he’s just not quite over that beef with Chris Brown.
He may be the only person in the world who still thinks Chris Brown is relevant.
Soon enough comes the requisite Toronto shoutouts – he references Swiss, Sotto’s and Joso’s – and then moves on to the always timely Fresh Prince of Bel-Air allusion.
All them boys in my will
All them boys is my Wills
Anything happen to pop and I got you like Uncle Phil
Before the song can end, a couple mentions of Lil’ Wayne sneak through, and of course some more waxing poetic on how he’s here to stay despite his enemies’ attempts to end his career.
It’s hard to imagine that Drake has too many of those, since that would require caring in the first place.
I bet Drake is a tight hugger. I bet he closes his eyes & smiles every time. I bet he leans backwards a little so your spine stretches.
