A new song by Drake leaked a week before the release of his album Nothing Was The Same.
Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2 is a laid-back hip-hop dual track featuring Jay Z. Drake reflects on his teenage years and the ill-treatment he faced in his verse.
"My classmates, they went on to be chartered accountants or work with their parents. But, thinking back on how they treated me, my high school reunion might be worth an appearance, make everybody have to go through security clearance," he raps.
"I've done made more millionaires than the lotto did," he raps, referencing artists who've experienced similar success working under him, including Kanye West.
The Canadian rapper spoke about the third album's progression and referenced the song specifically in an August interview with Rolling Stone.
"That track excites me from a rap standpoint, just getting off bars and different flows. I played it for J. Cole, on some rap buddy-buddy s--t, and he was like, 'Damn,' " Drake told the magazine about the sequel to his solo version of Rick Ross' Aston Martin Music.
The rapper's third album will be the follow-up to 2011's Take Care. His sophomore album peaked at No. 1 on Billboard, as did his debut album Thank Me Later in 2010. Take Care also won the Grammy for Best Rap Album at the 2013 award show and sold more than a million copies in the U.S. alone.
Nothing Was The Same is due on Sept. 24.
