I'm Upset - Drake




The Experience: Driven... And nothing else matters...

Music video: I'm Upset takes a successful Drake back to his past with a wild high school reunion, complete with the drug dealers, vandalism, cliques and fights from way back when.

The Meaning of I'm Upset: Drake describes his drive for success. It's more than money: fifty thousand... hunnid thousand... half a million... it's disrespect... I can't accept. It's far more important than sex - can't go fifty-fifty with no h-... she don't even love me. For Drake life isn't a game - you tryna check? This is real life, n-gg-s think we playin' chess. It's an obsession and there's no time to lose - so what's next? Jump up out the bed like I'm possessed.

Ask yourself: Drake knows what he wants and puts success above everything else. What's your obsession? Does it matter what your priorities are as long as you're faithful to them?

Album: Scorpion (2018)

LYRICS:


Yeah
I'm workin' on dyin'

I'm upset
Fifty thousand on my head, it's disrespect
So offended that I had to double check
I'ma always take the money over sex
That's why they need me out the way
What you expect?

Got a lot of blood and it's cold
They keep tryna get me for my soul
Thankful for the women that I know
Can't go fifty-fifty with no h-
Every month, I'm supposed to pay her bills
And get her what she want
I still got like seven years of doin' what I want
My dad still got child support from 1991
Outta time, people love to pop a lot of sh-t then come around
Word to Flacko Jodye, he done seen us put it down
N-gg-s askin' if I'm cool

I'm upset
Hunnid thousand on my head, it's disrespect
So offended that I had to double check

You tryna check?
This is real life, n-gg-s think we playin' chess
So what's next?
Jump up out the bed like I'm possessed
I go out on tour and I say I'm drinkin' less
End up gettin' loose and gettin' pictures from my ex
SMS, triple X
That's the only time I ever shoot below the neck (skrr)
Why you keep on shootin' if you know that n-gg- dead? (Skrr)
That's the only kind of sh-t that gets you some respect

Got a lot of blood and it's cold
They keep tryna get me for my soul
Thankful for the women that I know
Can't go fifty-fifty with no h- (ayy, ayy)
Every month, she don't even love me, she just puttin' on a front
She gon' tryna settle outta court and make a run
Then gon' ask me how I'm doin'?

I'm upset
Half a million on my head I can't accept, yeah
'Least it makes me feel someone tried their best, yeah
Want to waste a half a million, be my guest
Made me wanna buy a vest and a tech (skrr)
But I'm blessed, I just checked
Hate me, never met me in a flesh
Said she's got somethin's she gotta come here and collect
That sh-t is in a box to the left, to the left

Got a lot of blood and it's cold
They keep trynna get me for my soul
Thankful for the women that I know
Can't go fifty-fifty with no h-
