It has been about a week since Drake's If You're Reading This, It's Already Too Late mixtape dropped, and the fans who aren't out getting tattoos of the cover art or tweeting about release are still digesting the surprise gift from the 6 God. Very few people would dispute Drake's lyrical abilities, and while there are sites and forums where people can share opinions on what they think his rhymes mean, it's hard to know for sure.

Our friends over at Pigeons & Planes reached out to a London-based illustrator named James Clapham to settle the debate once for all. Using classic lines from Drake's biggest songs including "0 Too 100 / The Catch Up" and "Hold On, We're Going Home", Clapham created illustrations that show "what Drake really meant in his lyrics."

"It’s 2008 I’m trying to paint the picture" – "0 To 100 / The Catch Up"
"Swangin’, eyes closed just swangin’" – "Connect"
"One of us goes in, and we all go through it" – "Headlines" 
"But get it while you’re here boy, cause all that hype don’t feel the same next year boy" – "I’m On One" 
"I piece letters together and get to talkin’ reckless" – "Tuscan Leather" 

To see more of the exclusive illustrations, head over to Pigeons & Planes and follow Clapham on Twitter.
