DRAKE - Closer

rate me

Feat. Andreena Mill


Yeah I remember me and D used to talk ‘bout this kind of stuff all the time

Like what it's gon’ be like when you get closer to your dreams

I didn't know much then but, probably tell you a lil' somethin' now


Mr. Big Dreams no tolerance

Cut you at the house and haven't hollered since

Get bored quickly

He stay grown

So the patrãn had to get poured quickly

Ex girl stripping

I can't stop her

New girl tripping but I can't drop her

Cuz I need somethin' to balance out the fact

That it's hard to find a woman when you talented and black

When you hollering at labels

And they silencin’ you back

Cuz you fail to thoroughly discuss some violence in your track

Well, gunshot for the young yeah own and see

See there's everybody else then there's one top loner

First place is often the worst place

But fuck it I love in here I call it my birthplace

Whenever I walk in their making the worst face

Surrounded by Filipinos I think of the worst case

Watch blue and green diamonds I call it the earth face

I'm getting your cake I tell you how yo dessert taste

I get a dessert plate

Y'all eat pedigree as a meal

I've been Uriel for some years it's better being Jaleel

Though I rock lean snap it's better being this real

It's better driving a car with the letter B in the wheel

Seat back

Light saying tank on E

I got the drank on me

You better bank on me

To be the one and only nigga that you ain't gonna see

In the club with a model spilling drinks on me

Give me 20 in the tank on 3

I'm in the Range bumping Keysha Cole

Singing off key like

I'mma spare y'all

Why you wanna judge me?

I ain’t ever compare y'all

City is mine

I know it cuz I'm there y'all

It ain't even started I'm really tryna prepare y'all

Spring '07 second quarter I'm droppin’

With or without a label man I'm committed to popping

And take over the summer

Tour to tour I’m hoppin'

I'mma meet a lot of women I'mma do a lot of shoppin'

Really no other option

Spend a lot of money just to make it back

Anybody did this in a song I don't take it back

Same rappers that's all in your face saying Drake is wack

Are checking my availability just to make a track

I promise mama

I'mma do it cuz I know I put you through it (I know I put you through it babe)

And I just want you to sit around with ya friends at at dinner table

And say "my baby's famous and I know it"

And it wasn't nothin' to it

I've drawn it and drew it 'til the pen was out of fluid

The ballpoint run out

Then all joints come out classic

Rappers are fake we can all point one out



I'd like to introduce you to the first lady of the ATF (ahh)


Closer to my dreams I'm getting higher

Yeah man

How I feel it in my sleep(Singing to it babe)

I said I'm gettin' higher, yeah

And closer to my dreams, yeah

Sometimes it feels like I'll never move on

Closer to my dreams



I took a plane to Hawaii with D

And we was tripping off of the speed at which life progressed

From meeting with Trey in Atlanta to doing a cameo in his video

Which made everything right with X

Too many records and not enough shows

For too many rappers and not enough…well

You can fill the blank in

They tryna be the best

Just tryna place in the ranking

Day care play pen drop out

To grade 10 drop out

To summer '05 with the grey Benz drop out

Charcoal Charger

Racing through back streets

On my Craig David shit the Arthurs Dodger

I told her I'mma

About to get my run on so hold the commas

Times changed now I'm older mama

And these niggas ain't solid they fold in drama

And that's the realest shit I ever wrote

A compilation of mental thoughts that I never note

And hi, haters

I'm back off of hiatus

How ya album doing?

I'm getting cake off of my latest

Anticipated like the iPhone

Respected in any city that I roam

Summertime, wintertime, dinnertime, anytime

Bet I am the nigga in my town when I arrive home


Yeah one more time before we turn the lights out ladies and gentleman

(Sing it to' em Andreena)
