Bay Areeeea.. I love Bay Area music. Whenever I want to improve my mood I put on a whole itunes list that is filled with Bay Area music.. So I was quite excited when I peeped this new track by Drake ft. Lil Wayne and Tyga called “Motto” that pays homage to Bay Area music, mainly the deceased rapper Mac Dre, whose mother appears in the beginning of the video.
I have a lil Mac Dre Bobble Head Doll that raps on my bedroom dresser. It took me 2 years to even take it out the package, but I just think it’s so cool.
Anyway, back to the video.. Obviously filmed in the Bay Area Drake spits mighty hard on his song with Lil Wayne and Tyga backing him up while driving across the Golden Gate Bridge. (Nope, he didn’t ghost ride the whip)
[Drake] I’m the f*ckin man, you don’t get it do ya? Type of money everybody acting like they knew ya Go Uptown, New York City Biiitch Some Spanish girls love me like I’m Aventura Tell Uncle Luke I’m out in Miami too Clubbing hard, F*ckin’ women ain’t much to do Wrist blancpain, got a condo up in Biscayne Still getting brain from a thang, ain’t sh*t changed How you feel? how you feel? how you feel? Twenty five sittin’ on 25 mil uhh I’m in the building and I’m feeling myself Rest in peace Mac Dre, I’mma do it for the Bay, okay
You only live once: that’s the motto nigga YOLO
Lil Wayne even dons a pair of lime green boots which is a color the the Bay Area seems to love.
Needless to say if I had some dreads I would be shaking them to this track. YOLO!!
I’m just imagining many hoodrats in the club going hard to this beat with a glass of Moscato in their hand…
