    Drake still may still be looking for a Hot 100 number one as a lead artist, but his sheer number of entries to the chart is nothing to scoff at.

    One of the most commonly cited, quoted and laughed-about Drake lyrics is the almost impossibly arrogant "I wear every single chain, even when I'm in the house" in "Started From The Bottom."
