Is he talking about this concrete here?

seriously, though, alot of Drake fans claim that he "never pretends to be anything he's not," and I do give him credit for not claiming some street life

but cmon son

Aubrey is a rose that grew from the concrete?

seriously?

seriously??

he must be talking about the concrete of the heated pool in his gated suburban community, cause other than that I don't know what concrete streets Aubrey was grindin on.

He may be real about some things, but you gotta admit that he REALLY exaggerates his "struggle"

We all know he aint have to come up from poverty but just because you grew up in a safe setting and loving home doesnt mean you don't have to work hard for what you get... Lets not just act like this was handed to him... If he didnt grind write songs practice or have the talent he wouldnt be there... He ain't the prettiest motherf**ker out there but look at the success hes attained just give props where theyre due

You would be right except the line/ref is not about "working hard", it wasn't when Pac wrote his poem, and it wasn't when Betty Smith wrote "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn"...

you dont have to be from the ghetto to have struggles in your life, i mean he could be talking about a instance or time in his life, its not like everything he says has to be taken to heart. if you believe everything you hear from any rapper is 100% true your dreaming, i dont care who says it.

he referenced tupac...

if U don't get it. you don't get it.

he didnt steal his line if anything gave propz to tupac.

drake isn't talking about himself with that line......morons
stupid f**k..the whole verse is about himself

Money just changed everything, I wonder how life without it would go
From the concrete who knew that a flower would grow
Lookin' down from the top and its crowded below
My fifteen minutes started an hour ago

so just out of nowhere ...with one line he wanted reference to tupac ? stfu

also, you f**king idiots, he is talking about himself

read the first four lines

Money just changed everything, I wonder how life without it would go
From the concrete who knew that a flower would grow
Lookin' down from the top and its crowded below
My fifteen minutes started an hour ago
he's talking about himself in the entire opening

yes, he's quoting 2pac, but he's using 2pac's line to REFER TO HIMSELF

You do know that struggling doesn't always relate directly to money...right??

People with money can struggle..believe that

As far as "rose growing from concrete" that can be interpreted in so many ways..the term is basically referring to making something "impossible" occur(you ever seen a rose grow from concrete??me neither)
I could go more in depth in breaking it down but that should be enough to make in understandable..its really not that complicated.

It's amazing how people constantly complain about artists that they say they don't like, yet they continue to listen to them. Hmmm.
