Drake sat down with MTV News to talk about some lyrics off of his latest album, Nothing Was The Same, which drops today. MTV's Nadeska Alexis quizzed Drake on what he was thinking of while recording certain lyrics throughout his album.
After being quizzed about the meaning behind the "Pound Cake" lyric "I'm the big homie, they still be tryna lil bro me, dog," Drake talks about people still seeing this kid in him who is searching for acceptance even though that's not the case. "On this album, I'm extremely aware of where I'm at, nobody can really tell me different," he says. "As much as I do remain humble and stay cordial, don't think I don't know, I know what's going on out here, I'm 26, I'm out here in the streets with the people, trust me I know what's going on."
When asked about his relationship with Jay Z and how it's changed, Drake says Jay still reminds him who's boss, even with the first lyric off of "Pound Cake," "I had Benzes 'fore you had braces."
"He always takes his opportunity to remind me that he is the true 'big homie,'" Drake says. "Sometimes I'll set out and have something different in mind for Jay... but we always just end up rapping, I love rapping with that guy so much it's tough to go in any different direction."
