The 20 Best Drake Lyrics For Your Next Instagram Caption

Drake is one of the most successful artists in music history and a huge part has to do with fans being able to recite his lyrics verbatim.

Drake is also known as an artist that is in his feelings with his lyrical ability, which was accepted in pop culture after the release of Kanye West’s 808 and Heartbreak. So, what is better than serenading numerous listeners with Drake’s lyrics on the Instagram lyrics feature.

1. “Distance between us is not like a store, this isn’t a closeable gap, ayy”

Drake takes a major shot at Kanye West as he referenced West’s collaboration with the retail store Gap Inc. The Toronto based artist blames West for revealing that to Pusha T, that Drake had a kid that Pusha claimed he was hiding from the world. However, Pusha claims that Drake’s producer Noah ‘OVO 40’ Shebib was the one that revealed the information.

2. “I wanna do major things MJ in every way, I just don’t fade away”

Drake released the single “9” off his album Views and he shows the ability to wordplay with arguably the greatest basketball player, who plays the game with Michael Jordan.

He was also able to incorporate that he has been a part of mainstream music for the past 11 years with no plans to over fading away like Jordan in basketball, he will always be a part of the music industry.

3. “Yeah, all of my brothers, we equal I play my part too, like a sequel”

Drake is given credit to all his brothers for the success throughout his lucrative and prosperous career over the years and they are all equal in building the Drake brand and creating mega-hit records.

When they drop a project as a collective group, they are looking to repeat or surpass the success they achieved in the past.

4. “Cause, everybody dies but not everybody lives”

When Drake dropped the line in Moment 4 Life, he meant that everyone will, die one day, not everybody lives by leaving a legacy behind. When you make the most of your time here and leave everlasting memories that you will always be celebrated for in the end.

5. “Last name ever, first name greatest, like a sprained ankle boy ain’t nothing to play with”

“Forever” is one of the greatest warm-up songs of all-time. The song has also been used in various commercials, most notably Sprite featuring four-time NBA Champion LeBron James.

6. “You underestimated greatly, more number ones, ever how long did it really take me, the part I love the most they need me more than they hate me, so they never take shots I got everybody on safety”

Drake shows his cockiness that he’s one of the best to do it and that the game/ fans need him.

Throughout his career, Drake has helped artists in the industry by hoping for their single original versions or the remix of it to give the boost to put over the top.

It’s an on-going, saying if you can get a drake versus and it will sell.

7. “And I’m not drivin’ nothin’ that I gotta stick the keys in”

The way the flow changed up on the same song is also Legendary. DJ Khaled definitely knew who to go get to make sure that Popstar was another hit record. The king of phrases such as “another one” and “we the best” is guaranteed to churn out at least one radio hit a year.

8. “Kobe ’bout to lose a hundred fifty M’s, Kobe my ni**a, I hate it had to be him, Bitch, you wasn’t with me shootin’ in the gym”

During the time that the song was released, Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant sounded like they were probably going to get a divorce, and at the time, he was worth $300 million in 2011, according to Forbes.

Eventually, Vanessa would respond with “I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are.

I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks, and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life.

And Drake would send an apology through his manager to the Bryants.

9. “I told you you don’t need to worry about them b***h. All them fives need to listen when the ten is talking”

Drake is trying to convince his love interest that the other women that are trying to get his attention do not matter. He’d rather be with the ten that he is with and they are not finished talking and he is willing to pull up on her to chat.

10. “I’m just sayin’ you could do better Tell me, have you heard that lately?”

In the song, a drunken Drake lights an old flame and expresses his feelings of loneliness, remembering the times they had, and trying to make her leave her new man.

11. “We live in a generation of not being in love, and not being together, but we make it feel like we’re together, cause we’re scared to see each other with somebody else”

One of Drake’s deepest lyrics. He is definitely in his bag with this one!

12. “Ayy B I got your CD you get an E for Effort”

A personal favorite Drake song.

The track is sick and his flow is on point. The beat is also ill and everyone can relate to it no matter the mood that they might be in.

13. “IRS all in my books getting they Matlock on, all this capital seems like I left my caps lock on. It’s every time I plot a RETURN, I seem to SHIFT the game, see I can talk KEYS without pitching cane.”

This is a reference to a keyboard and cocaine “keys” that Drake is often embarrassed about because he is not a drug dealer. However, Drake says he can still rap on keys, without selling drugs speaking of a real keyboard.

14. “I like it when money makes a difference but don’t make you different”

From the song “From Time” off of Nothing Was the Same, this bar serves as a reminder to always stay humble and true to yourself, regardless of the success you might attain.

15.” My side girl got a 5S with the screen cracked… Still hit me back right away”

Drake is sending a message to his main girl that doesn’t hit him back when he reaches out. He lets her know that even his side piece hit him back immediately, even with a cracked Samsung 5s.

16. “Back to back like I’m on the cover of Lethal Weapon Back to back like I’m Jordan ’96, ’97 whoa Very important and very pretentious When I look back I might be mad that I gave this attention”

Drake drops another Jordan reference as he is calling out Meek Mill, who accused him of having ghost writers his whole career.

17. “Keep it 8 more than 92 with me”

Many people have connected with this song because Drake says to keep it one hundred with him, but fans can also relate because they were born in 1992, and eight is a lucky number for them.

18. “I know they say the first love is the sweetest, But that first cut is the deepest”

Drake is talking about how your first love is the sweetest experience you can have, but it can also hurt you the most after the break-up. 

19. “I mean that thing is poking/ I mean you kinda like that girl that’s in the U.S. Open/ I mean I got this hidden agenda that you provoking/ I got bath water that you could soak in”

Drake is not the first rapper to refer to Serena Williams’ “assets”, and he’s not going to be the last. By using the curves of the famous tennis player as a plan to bring this line to life, we get the impression that the girl on whom he is rapping has a beautiful silhouette.

20. “And I’ll be right here in my spot, with a little more cash than I already got/ Trippin’ off you ’cause you had your shot/ With my skin tan and my hair long and my fans who been so patient/ Me and 40 back to work but we still smell like a vacation.”

Drake is not psychic but predicting that his second album would have as much success as his first was a safe bet. Working with some of the usual suspects, like DJ Khaled—the song appears on his album We the Best Forever—and Lil Wayne, Drizzy addresses his long pause between releases and thanks fans for their support.
