Top 10 Drake 'Thank Me Later' Quotes


Drake's highly anticipated debut album, 'Thank Me Later' has officially released today, June 15 and it was well worth the wait! I've got to say this is one of the best and most complete albums I've heard in awhile and I wouldn't be surprised if he sold over a million copies the first week. The album is full of catchy melodies and choruses along with great rapping full of wordplay, personal insight, punchlines and realness. I was surprised with how R&B it sounded but I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed everything. My favorite tracks were Fireworks, The Resistance, Light Up, and Unforgettable, not to mention Thank Me Later. There's not but a couple of tracks that I think don't stand out but nonetheless the album is a fine piece of work which is the reason I made this list of best Drake Quotes and Drake Lyrics.

Young and rich and outa control, out in LA blowin' clouds of the killa

Drizzy back up in this thing, I'm ready, what's happenin'?
Gone for surgery but now I'm back again
I'm bout my paper like a muh-f*ckin' scratch and win
World series attitude, champagne bottle life
Nothin's ever changin' so tonight is like tomorrow night
I will have a model wife, yo b*tch is as hot as
Every time you see me, I look like I hit the lotto twice"

"Mahalo from the hardest act to follow
Lately I've been drinkin' like there's a message in a bottle
Alohas to women with no ties
To men that know well, that means there are no lies
You can thank me now for all the info I give to you n*ggas
I'm on the brink of influential, I'm here for you n*ggas
I guess a hit doesn't add up to a career for you n*ggas
I must've been hard to watch, what a year for you n*ggas
Its December 31st and we in Miami just meditatin'
You got your resolutions, we just got reservations"
'Thank Me Now'

"Searchin' for the meanin', you'll find it next to me
They tell me I'm the hottest, guess we finally get to see
I'm feelin' like Nas, who am I to disagree?
They say the doors all open up soon as you find the missin' key
That's prolly why I'm in this b*tch just shinin'
Jump into the sky and put the stars into alignment
I rep the ATF incase you gotta be reminded
And the band-wagon's full, but you can try to run behind it"
'Thank Me Now'
- Drake
