Drake And Future Address Meek Mill, Ciara, Karrueche And More On ‘What A Time To Be Alive’


By now, if you have Internet access, you are aware that two very famous rappers have dropped a joint mixtape.

On a special edition of his OVO Sound Beats 1 radio show, Drake proceeded to place the Web on tilt by premiering What A Time To Be Alive, his surprise (but not-so-surprise) collaborative effort with Future. Featuring tracks that are both trap and twerk-worthy, the duo manages to slip a line or two in about a few hot topics.

With drama surrounding his breakup with Ciara, it sounds like Mr. Hendrix dedicates a couple of bars to the touchy subject. And Drizzy – whose name has been a trending topic more often than not – seems to employ slick bars about Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend, his winning relationship with Serena Williams, Diddy, and whether or not he needs a ghostwriter. He may have even addressed the ever-pertinent issue of police brutality. And of course, both Drake and Future take jabs at Meek Mill.

Here are 12 lines from What A Time To Be Alive that you may have to run back.

This for my niggas on that bullshit and that nonsense,
This for my dawgs that go Karrueche with the chopsticks
– Drake (“Live From The Gutter”)

The pen is working if you niggas need some ghost lines
– Drake (“30 for 30 Freestyle”)

Kids’ll lose their lives, got me scared of losing mine
And if I hold my tongue about it, I get crucified
– Drake (“30 for 30 Freestyle”)

When the higher-ups have all come together as a collective
With conspiracies to end my run and send me a message
– Drake (“30 for 30 Freestyle”)

When you say you love a nigga do you really mean it?
– Future (“Digital Dash”)

I’m Harlem shaking through the pressure
I might put Diddy on my next shit
– Drake (“Digital Dash”)

Just walked in with a girl that’s making triple what I’m making, what an entrance
– Drake (“Digital Dash”)

You just a battle rapper, I’m an official trapper
Niggas be droppin’ subliminals nigga, they’re just some jibber jabber
– Future (“Big Rings”)

I know them tears still falling down on my last bitch
– Future (“Live From The Gutter”)

I watched my broad give up on me like I’m average
I went back inside the attic count it up and started laughing, ha
I went back inside the attic count it up and started laughing, ha
– Future (“Live From The Gutter”)

If I can give everything back to you
All this passion I got, all I ever needed
For me to move on and succeed
For me to move on and succeed
Jealousy, envy and greed
Too much of that shit I don’t need it
– Future (“Scholarships”)

Fuck all the opps and the shots that they send
I let off first then I let off again
You will not hear from them ever again
– Drake (“Change Locations”)

I know I’mma get my bitch back, woooah
– Future (“Jumpman”)
