Drake's Nothing Was The Same leaked five days ago now, and many of you have probably already heard it.* "Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2" was one of the more anticipated tracks from the album, with a feature from Jay Z and the continuation of the "Paris Morton Music" concept.
The words to this track were by far the most popular of the week. Drake reflects on his come-up, accomplishments and relationships, and Hov takes that champion, throne flow approach, amplified by a sample from the Wu-Tang Clan's "C.R.E.A.M." on the hook.
This is the third time Drake and Jay Z have collaborated. How's their chemistry?
I hear you talking, say it twice so I know you meant it
Fuck it, I don't even tint it, they should know who's in it
I'm authentic, real name, no gimmicks
No game, no scrimmage, I ain't playing with you niggas at all
My classmates, they went on to be chartered accountants
Or work with their parents, but thinking back on how they treated me
My high school reunion might be worth an appearance
Make everybody have to go through security clearance
Tables turn, bridges burn, you live and learn
With the ink I could murder, word to my nigga Irv
Yeah, I swear shit just started clicking, dawg
You know it's real when you are who you think you are
[Excerpt: Jay Z]
I had Benzes 'fore you had braces
The all black Maybach but I'm not a racist
Inside's whiter than Katy Perry's face is
Yellow diamonds in my Jesús
I just might learn to speak Mandarin
Japanese for the yen that I'm handling
International Hov, that's my handle
My saint's Sean Don, light a candle
El Gran Santo on the mantle
'Case y'all didn't know, I speak Spanish too
