Drake’s Bold Lyrics: A Possible Nod to Joe Budden and 6ix9ine?

In “Stories About My Brother,” Drake delivers lines that many believe are direct shots at Joe Budden and possibly 6ix9ine. The track, produced by Conductor Williams, showcases Drake‘s ability to blend personal narratives with broader industry commentary.

The Joe Budden Angle

Drake raps, “Imagine us gettin’ our validation from an ex-musician searchin’ for recognition/Same story every time, they heckle in repetition.” This line is widely interpreted as a response to Budden’s critique of Drake’s album on The Joe Budden Podcast, where Budden labeled Drake’s work as lacking maturity.

Another intriguing verse goes, “Y’all the type to catch a charge, head to the deposition/And act like the rapper named after the sex position.” This could be a veiled reference to 6ix9ine’s legal troubles, though Drake and 6ix9ine have not had notable public disputes.

This album marks the third installment in Drake’s Scary Hours series, expanding the original For All the Dogs into a deluxe edition. The announcement came as a surprise, with Drake sharing a trailer on Instagram, where he confidently states, “I feel no need to appease anybody.”
