Drake has been given some props by Bun B, Ty Dolla $ign and a number of other artists impressed with his Instagram bars.
On Friday (February 3), the Her Loss rapper took to Instagram with a series of lyrics, accompanied by a compilation of photos featuring him in a dark lit studio, along with a snap showing him smiling from ear-to-ear.
“Introduced myself to consistency &we fell in love/ Ever since then we’ve been stuck &can’t get enough/ @ this rate the going rate to see the one they rate isn’t luck/ Easy to see your hard work just ain’t hard enough because look @ them &look at us/ I’m just an observer who has seen enough,” Drake began his bars.
“My mouth is becoming like the doors I opened for you I should have kept it shut/ Wish I could explain what happens in person to these guys acting tough/ Basically I let them keep dreaming and make believing til i decide to wake them up.”

The comment section was littered with support from fans and friends alike. Bun B wrote: “Talk yo shit.” Meanwhile, singer, songwriter and producer, Ty Dolla $ign showed love with a series of fire emojis.
The Toronto native has been on a roll this week, sharing his thoughts on a variety of mediums. On Thursday (February 2), the Certified Lover Boy rapper appeared in a pre-recorded video at the Black Music Collective dinner — in celebration of Lil Wayne, Dr. Dre and Missy Elliott who were all awarded the Global Impact Award — where he praised his “brother” Lil Wayne, while taking a few digs at the Recording Academy.
“Good evening, Grammys. Well, I haven’t gotten to say that since 2016. My name is Drake and I’m here tonight on behalf of the Black Music Collective,” Drizzy said, before joking that he was presenting the Global Impact Award to pop star Ed Sheeran.
After someone off-camera whispered in his ear that the honor actually went to Weezy, he said: “Lil Wayne, oh right, makes sense, yeah, sorry Lil Wayne, my brother, that’s a lot better … I love you so much.”
“I know I probably get annoying with saying how much you mean to me and my family, but I think I speak on behalf of everybody when I say that our careers, our cadences, our melodies, maybe our face tats or our outfits or our decisions in general would not have been the same without your natural gift to just be yourself.”
Drake’s contentious relationship with the Grammys is a storied one. In 2022, he withdrew his nominations for Certified Lover Boy at the ceremony, and in 2019, he gave a memorable speech that was cut off after “God’s Plan” took home the award for Best Rap Song.
According to Drake, the golden gramophone holds no real value in the real world, and fan support is the only thing that matters.
