Drake – “Summer Sixteen”

Status Ain't Hood
The Drake/Meek Mill Beef Enters Its Conspiracy-Theory Phase

Drake premiered a new single tonight on his Beats 1 show OVO Sound Radio, and he announced that the long-awaited Views From The 6 will be out in April. Produced by Noah “40,” Shebib, Boi-1da, and CuBeatz, “Summer Sixteen” finds Drake taking shots at everyone from Meek Mill to Kanye: “Now I got a bigger pool than Ye, and, look, man, Ye’s pool is nice/ Mine’s just bigger is what I’m saying.” He also disputes Barack Obama’s claim that Kendrick would beat him in a rap feud: “Tell Obama that my verses are like the whips that he in/ They bulletproof.” Listen below or via Apple Music here.

UPDATE: Check out two more new Drake jams: the Popcaan collab “Controlla,” along with his cover of Jackson Browne’s “These Days.”

Here are the full “Summer Sixteen” lyrics:

[Intro: Drake]
Looking, looking
Looking, looking
Looking, looking
Looking, looking

[Hook: Drake]
Looking for revenge
All summer sixteen
All summer sixteen
Playing dirty not clean
Out in front of Four Seasons
Looking like a damn football team
All in the same thing
All repping one thing
Looking for revenge

[Verse 1: Drake]
To do what you couldn’t do
Tell Obama that my verses are like the whips that he in
They bulletproof
Minus twenty we in Pitt, feel that
Case catching in a canada goose
Famous as fuck but I’m still in the cut when they round up the troops
I’m just a sicko a real sicko when you get to know me nigga
I let the diss record drop you were standing right below me, nigga
We must have played it a hundred times, you was going to bed
Why would I put on a vest I expect you to aim for the head?
I coulda killed you the first time
You don’t have to try to say it louder nigga
We could hear you the first time
It’s nothing personal I would have done it to anyone
And I blame where I came from
And I blame all my day ones
You know Chubbs like Draymond
You better off not saying nothing
Them boys they a handful
Then I hit ‘em with the Hotline
Chris Breezy with the dance moves
Mo-G with the dance moves
Ab-boy with the dance moves
Jimi Hendrix with the solo
Those the strings that you can’t pull
Yeah, and I could really dish it out
Come and get it from the source
Fuck with all the word of mouth
Golden State running practice at my house
Nigga, what am I about?
You gon’ really feel it now
I’m out here…

[Hook: Drake]
Looking for revenge
All summer sixteen
All summer sixteen
Playing dirty not clean
Out in front of Four Seasons
Looking like a damn football team
All repping one thing
Looking for revenge

[Verse 2: Drake]
All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little
All your ex’s know I like my O’s with a V in the middle
You would love it if I went away or didn’t say nothing else
How am I keeping it real by keeping this shit to myself?
You was never gang, gang, gang, gang, you was never one of us
Had us fooled for a minute now we done all grown up
But I’m better off anyway, y’all never gon’ finish Drake
Say you seeing ‘bout it when you see me man y’all never home anyway
Thought of things that you shoulda said, said things that you shouldn’t say
We even gave you the whole money play and ya’ll still broke to this day
“Oh it’s your time now” yeah, that’s what everybody say
Used to wanna be on Rocafella then I turned into Jay
Now I got a house in LA, Now I got a bigger pool than Ye
And look man, Ye’s pool is nice, mine is just bigger is what I’m saying
I’m that nigga’s what I’m saying
Getting things done around here
How you let me run it down here
I’m not even from around here
Six, six, six, six soon as I’m back in the city they throw a parade
I might get a key to the city and give it to Wayne
Or give it to one of the young boys to carry the wave
Yeah, so trust me, they’ll be out here…

[Hook: Drake]
Looking for revenge
All summer sixteen
All summer sixteen
Playing dirty not clean
Out in front of Four Seasons
Looking like a damn football team
All in the same thing
All repping one thing
Looking for revenge

[Outro: DJ Khaled]
They don’t want us to have a bigger pool than Kanye

Views From The 6 is out in April.

UPDATE: Turns out Drake had a busy night. The rapper was named the Toronto Raptors’ Global Ambassador a few years ago, and last night, right after dropping “Summer Sixteen,” he sat in as a special guest commentator during the team’s game against the Pistons. Watch and listen below via HotNewHipHop.
