“Do you love me, or love seeking attention?”, grills Drake on his newest cut with Rick Ross: a side-eyed, piano-flickered freestyle that reiterates the OVO singer-rapper’s still-earnest desire to be memorialized for Aubrey Graham, and Aubrey Graham alone.
With So Far Gone celebrating its tenth birthday this past February, the Drake legacy is a decade + in the making. Unconditionally embraced through hidden-child trials, embarrassing dance-off Ls, and court-side obnoxiousness met with NBA official intervention, the 32-year-old remains shrouded with a ride-or-die kind of love.
Still, he likes this validated, making us pinky-promise over a 6-minute track that evokes Take Care-solemn flashback: [“Before I’m gone outta this place, yeah/Put some flowers in my face, won’t you?”].
“Gold Roses” intros Rick Ross’ upcoming studio album Port of Miami 2 , arriving August 9th.
