There is no denying that Hip Hop lyrics are some of the most used captions on social media. Although it remains a mystery which rapper’s lines are the most quoted, and used in text messages, one thing’s for sure, if we were to have a poll, Canadian rapper Drake would arguably be in the top ten, if not top 5.
Alongside being used everywhere, the OVO boss’ relatable bars have been subject to various memes and social media challenges, especially those that have to do with romance and relationships, and singer Sean Kingston has recently given some insight as to why people seem to connect with Drizzy’s lyrics.
According to the Kingston, Drake pens those bars from real life experience. “That’s why Drake is Drake because when he’s having conversations, the conversations he’s having, he’s putting them in songs,” Kingston told American publication HipHopDX. “That’s why they can be Instagram captions. Yo, I’ve never seen nothing like it. The dude will be in the studio with girls…the dude is a G.O.A.T.”
Kingston then shared a story about being in the studio with Drake and actually witnessing it all go down. “Drake was in the room, you know, he’s got girls around him and the guy is basically having conversations with girls and he’s just going back to the booth and doing his thing,” he said. “And I’m like, ‘Yo, this n*gga’s a genius,’ because he’s saying sh*t that n*ggas are scared to say and he’s winning with it.”
“Because n*ggas feel like, ‘Oh, that’s probably too soft.’ But the girls are like, ‘Oh my god, he touched-melted my heart with that sh*t.’
