The 17 Drake-iest Lines on Drake’s ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’


Last night, Drake released his latest album mixtape album mixtape.

17. “On my way, money taught me Spanish / Make it andale” (“Legend”)

15. “Bout to call your ass a Uber, I got somewhere to be” (“Energy”)

14. “Yeah shout goes out to Nike checks all over me / I need a FuelBand just to see how long the run has been” (“10 Bands”)

13. “I wanna prove that I’m number one over all these niggas / Bein’ number two is just being the first to lose” (“6PM in New York”)

12. “Not your guy, I’m not your buddy, show no lovin’ / I might go DeMarcus Cousins out in public” (“6 Man”)

11. “‘Don’t ever take advice,’ that was great advice” (“You & the 6”)

10. “I got rap niggas that I gotta act like I like / But my actin’ days are over, fuck them niggas for life” (“Energy”)

9. “Man I told my city I’d be gone till November, then November came / Then I came, right back on my worst behav'” (“10 Bands”)

8. “Niggas know I’m credible / Ain’t no pussy on a pedestal” (“Star67”)

7. “I be with the bands like a nigga went to Jackson State / Or Grambling / Young Nick Cannon with the snare drum, dancin'” (“Used To”)

6. “I got bitches askin’ me about the code for the wifi / So they can talk about they timeline / And show me pictures of they friends / Just to tell me they ain’t really friends (“Energy”)

4. “I order that Alfredo pasta / Then eat in the kitchen like I’m in the mafia” (“No Tellin'”)

3. “I need a girl who gon’ trust me / Someone to fuck me / Someone to make me feel luck / Someone that’s so proud to be with me / She walk right up to her ex, look him dead in the face / And say, ‘You ain’t got the juice like that / You ain’t got the juice like that’ / That’s cold, ice cold, girl you ain’t have to do him like that” (“Company”)

2. “I heard a lil’ lil’ homie talking reckless in VIBE / Quite a platform you chose, you shoulda kept it inside / Oh you tried, it’s so childish calling my name on the world stage / You need to act your age and not your girl’s age(“6PM in New York”)

1. “She said, ‘I heard you back with you-know-who’ / I told her, ‘Girl, I’m always back with you-know-who'” (“You & the 6”)
