[Hook: Drake]
Started from the bottom now we here
Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
Started from the bottom now we here
Started from the bottom now the whole team here nigga
Started from the bottom now we here
Started from the bottom now my whole team here nigga
Started from the bottom now we here
Started from the bottom now the whole team fucking here

[Verse 1: Drake]
I'da kept it real from the jump
Livin' at my mama's house we argue every month
Nigga, I was tryin' to get it on my own
Working all night traffic on the way home
And my Uncle callin' me like where you at?
I gave you the keys told you bring it right back
Nigga, I think it's funny how it goes
Now I'm on the road half a million for a show
And we

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Drake]
Boys tell stories about the man
Say I never struggle wasn't hungry yeah I doubt it nigga
I can turn your boy into the man
There aint really much out here that's poppin' off without us nigga
We just want the credit where it's due
I'ma worry bout me give a fuck about you
Nigga, just a reminder to myself
I wear every single chain even when I'm in the house
Cause we
Started from the bottom now we here
Started from the bottom now my whole team fuckin here
Started from the bottom now we here
Started from the bottom now the whole team here nigga

[Bridge: Drake]
No new niggas nigga we don't feel that
Fuck a fake friend where your real friends at?
We don't like to do too much explaining
Story stayed the same I never changed it
No new niggas nigga we don't feel that
Fuck a fake friend where your real friends at?
We don't like to do too much explaining
Story stayed the same through the money and the fame
Cause we

[Hook]

    He could mean he just hates his music, You can dislike someone as an artist, though I typically dont agree with not liking someone for their art, only possible to dislike their art, not them as a person if you never met them. But I think everyone got his point when he said he disliked drake (strongly)

    Only he did not start from the bottom... granted, his parents did go through a divorce, and his mom struggled at times, but he grew up in Forest Hill, a rich part of Toronto. He went to a good Jewish school (his mother is white and Jewish, but I am sure his fans already know this), and later to some pretty prestigious schools... granted, he dropped out of high school because of all his acting and music commitments, but later completed it in October 2012, which I commend him for.

    Question for you Stephen, how do you hate someone you never met?? I don't get this younger generation, so many haters, don't make no sense. If it's his music you don't dig, leave it at that, but why "hate" the dude, for real he's just living his dream, you should do the same

    p.s. stephen i don't think drake is losing sleep over hatas like you especially with this part of the song "I'ma worry bout me give a fuck about you" he prepared himself ahead of time for your type of ignorance. dislike an artist's song or his beliefs but to "hate" a certain artist from afar, makes u look stupid bro
