First Listen: Drake Drops 'Days in the East'
Checkout Drake's "Days in the East" after the jump!
In the latter end of the song Drake shares a trip to Erykah Badu's house, rapping: "I remember one night I went to Erykah Badu's house/She made tea for me/ We talked about love and what life could really be for me/she said when that shit is real, you just know."
He continues to rap about a rekindled relationship with someone who travels to him while overseas: "Back up in this thang, it's a go/ Had a couple ni--as out of pocket, now they know/ Ain't the first time 'cause I lost you before/ Had to get it back," Drake raps. "Take a flight here, pop a Xan for your boy/ Wakin' up in Amsterdam with the boy/Long flight home, another Xan for your boy... You would probably kill another man for the boy." Is it safe to say that Drake is alluding to Rihanna?
Under the mononym Drake, he first garnered recognition for his role as Jimmy Brooks on the television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. He later rose to prominence as a rapper, releasing several mixtapes like Room for Improvement before signing to Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment in June 2009.
