Watch Salman Rushdie Analyze Drake’s Finest Lyrics for CBC
"I like the half-rhyme in that one"
Drake’s had a dynamite 2015 — dropping hit single after hit single, If You’re Reading This It’s Already Too Late, and his Future collaboration What A Time To Be Alive in the past ten months alone — but you’re not anybody until the revered author Salman Rushdie recites and analyzes your lyrics, as he’s just done for October’s Very Own.
Thank the CBC, who sat Rushdie down and had him roll through classics such as “Last name ever / First name greatest / Like a sprained ankle, boy / I ain’t nothing to play with” (2009’s “Forever”) and “”You was poppin’ back when Usher wore a U-Chain / God damn, you changed” (2015’s “6 God”). Watch all that and more gloriously unfold below.
