The two faces of Drake

He's sappy--but seriously might kick someone's teeth in

He walks the line between pissed and passionate better than most. Let’s compare some of Drake’s angriest and sappiest lyrics, shall we?

Angry Aubrey

“I don’t know why they been lying but your [bleep] is not that inspiring

Bank account statements just look like I’m ready for early retirement” (“The Language”)

“This is a gated community, please get the [bleep] off the property

Rap must be changing cause I’m at the top and ain’t no one on top of me

N-words be wanting a verse for a verse, but man that’s not a swap to me” (“Versace Remix”)

“This one is for all the N-words from my city trying to diss

Without a response from me you really fail to exist

And I love to see you fail, that feeling there is the [bleep]

I swear, [bleep] N-word get your bread up

Enjoy the seat that the stewardess just forced your ass to let up” (“9 am in Dallas”)

All of “HYFR”

Sad Aubrey:

OK, look, I’m honest. Girl, I can’t lie, I miss you

You and the music were the only things that I’d commit to (“Shot for me”)

Next time we [bleep], I don’t wanna [bleep], I wanna make love

Next time we talk, I don’t wanna just talk, I wanna trust (“Own It”)

“I got an email today

Kind of thought that you forgot about me

But I want to hit you back to say

Just like you, I get lonely.” - “I Get Lonely Too”

All of “Marvin’s Room”
