Is Drake trying to steal my "swag?"
Speaking of Drake, I've just recently been informed that he might be trying to copy my persona.
Check the following lines from a song he did with Timbaland, supposedly from the sequel to Timbaland's album Shock Value, which spawned all sorts of pure unadulterated evil, including that song "Too Late to 'Pologize" and Keri Hilson.
"I'm the topic of conversation. It's a celebration. Let's celebrate the fact I moved out my momma basement. To a condo downtown, cuz it's all about location. I sit and drink wine and watch Californication."
Now, it'd be one thing if he was just rapping about wine. I've done a couple of posts this year about how I was drinking wine before it was all trendy, but I could chalk that up to him ripping off Jay and Kanye. But rapping about living in your mom's basement and watching Californication, all in the same few bars?
It's hardly any wonder the video for "Best I Ever Had" looks like the contents of my subconscious. This kid's been studying my site as if it was the Torah.
Check the video after the jump. The verse in question begins at the 45 second mark.
