Lyric by Lyric, Year by Year: Happy Birthday, Drake!

Yinz didn’t think I forgot to write Drake a birthday post, did ya?  No way I would miss this and especially on his 30th birthday.

While I am obviously a fan of Drake himself, it’s his music that really gives me (more) life, so this birthday post is dedicated to his songs and their lyrics that highlight his age throughout the years.  Did you know Drake has a lyric about his current age for every year since he was 21?  I actually themed my 27th birthday around that particular lyric (thanks for the inspo, Drizzy).  Well, if you didn’t know, I’ve listed them for you with links to the tracks as well.  But really, Drake’s lyrics (although sometimes corny) have continued to evolve, and for that I will always be grateful for new music from the 6 God.  Be enlightened below!

21 years old – 

I just tell the truth so I’m cool in every hood spot
21 years and I ain’t ever met a good cop (I’m Goin’ In)

22 years old – 

22, had the Bentley 4-door already
Even as a boy I was the boy already (Days In The East)

23 years old – 

I’m 23, with a money tree.
Growing more too, I just planted a hundred seeds. (The Resistance)

24 years old – 

24 hours from greatness, I’m close (Say What’s Real)

25 years old – 

25 sittin’ on 25 mil (The Motto)

26 years old – 

Yeah 26 on my third GQ cover
Your new sh*t sound like you do covers (Jodeci Freestyle)

27 years old – 

I’m only 27, and I’m only getting better (0 to 100)

28 years old – 

28 at midnight, wonder what’s next for me (6PM In New York)

29 years old 

Man, i’m only 29, have some patience with us (Sneakin’ ft. 21 Savage)

30 years old – 

What will he have to say about being 30?  I guess we’ll just have to wait for More Life to see!

Oh, and be sure to tune into my Snap tonight (ergense), as I’m going to see Majid Jordan perform at The Fonda Theatre, and I cannot wait!!
