Drake Unleashes Fury on ‘5 AM in Toronto’

Drake holds nothing back on his new song, ‘5 AM in Toronto,’ delivering powerful rhymes over a beat produced by Boi-1da.

The track has no hook or chorus, just three straight minutes of furious rapping from Drake, who seems to take several shots at other artists, as noted by The Boombox. Drizzy alludes to his alleged nightclub brawl with Chris Brown last year, rapping, “Bad press during the summer over allegations / I ain’t lyin’, my n—-, my time is money / That’s why I ain’t got time for a n—- whose time is comin.”

The rapper boasts that his peers try to imitate his style: “That’s why every song sound like Drake featuring Drake.” He adds, “It’s funny when you think a n—- blew up after Lupe / N—-s treat me like I’ve been here for 10 / Some n—-s been here for a couple, never been here again.

And while Drake ranked No. 2 on MTV’s Hottest MCs in the Game list in 2012 and No. 5 this year, the only list he cares about is the one published by Forbes that ranks artists by their income: “I swear, f— them n—-s this year / I made Forbes list, n—- / F— your list, everything’s lookin’ gorgeous.

‘5 AM in Toronto’ could be a track from Drake’s upcoming ‘Nothing Was the Same’ album, or it could be just a way for the rapper to vent and get some things off his chest. Drake is currently charting with the album’s first single, ‘Started From the Bottom.’
