Lyric: “Been flowin’ stupid since Vince Carter was on some through the legs, arm in the hoop shit”
Lyric: “A lot of people just hit me up when my name is mentioned/Shout out to KD, we relate, we get the same attention/It’s raining money, Oklahoma City Thunder/The most successful rapper 35 and under”
On an album that’s centered around the love for his hometown, on a song that doubles as an ode to Toronto (and references the city’s Metro transit system and the legendary now-defunct nightclub Fluid) it was only right that Drake would name-drop its most iconic athlete: Vince Carter. While Drake was only 13 when Vince Carter unleashed his iconic “Elbow Dunk” in the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest, the line is quintessential Drake, regardless. As a bonus, the KD shout-out (he was with the Thunder at the time) is delivered with some nice wordplay.
