7 Drake lyrics that are depressing if you aren’t Drake - The Strut

7 Drake lyrics that are depressing if you aren’t Drake

One of the best parts about listening to music is having the lyrics of your favorite artist speak to you. You feel their words and apply it to your own life, but it doesn’t always work out that way. Here’s some examples of how Drake’s lyrics take on a different meaning if you happen to not be Drake:

1. “Started from the bottom now we here”

Ok we know Drake’s “we here” refers to being an incredibly rich and famous rap artist. But what if you also started from the bottom and haven’t become incredibly rich and famous? Started from the bottom now we here (still at the bottom). Thanks for the reminder Drake.

2. “I don’t know how much I really made, I forgot.” – All Me

We know Drake has made so much money that he can’t even keep track of it, but what if you are trying to do your taxes? You spent countless hours this year making so little money that it’s not even worth remembering how much it was. Sorry IRS I don’t know how much I really made, I forgot…wait I’m going to jail?

3. “I reached heights that Dwight Howard couldn’t reach” – Tuscan Leather

Dwight Howard is nearly 7 feet tall, so reaching metaphorical heights higher than that is pretty impressive. However, it’s not so cool if you accomplish this because you are literally taller than Dwight Howard and don’t play in the NBA. Sure you change that lightbulb while sitting down but life is rough for incredibly tall dudes in normal life. You are always gawked at, have a hard time fitting through doorways, and of course get that daily question “how’s the weather up there?” Thanks Drake.

4.“Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments” – Headlines

Sure Drake gets to drink champagne every night, because he’s accomplished many things. Well what if I’m a little low on accomplishments this week? Looks like I can’t have that second glass of wine. Maybe we should just loosen up on what we call “accomplishments.” I brushed my teeth today…twice….time to drink to two accomplishments.

5. “I wear every single chain even when I’m in the house” – Started From The Bottom

I just went through some old boxes and the only chain I could find was a chain that used to have a dog tag on it that I got at the New York State Fair when I was 15. Putting EVERY SINGLE CHAIN on just isn’t that fun in my house. Thanks Drake.

6. “Tell them I’mma need reservations for 20
I’ve never really been one for the preservation of money, nah” – Crew Love

Group dinners in regular life are the worst. You end up spending way more money than you wanted to because of Jeff at the end of the table keeps ordering appetizers “for the table” and splitting the check at the end is a nightmare. Reservations for 20? No thanks I’m staying home.

7. “We in the club screaming no new friends, no new friends, no no new” – No New Friends

Yes a lot of people want to be Drake’s friend so he needs put his foot down with all these people coming out of the woodwork. I have the opposite problem. All my friends are getting married and having babies and never leaving their apartment so I need new friends. Finding new friends is difficult. I’m on the couch sobbing no new friends, no new friends, no no new.
