Drake is always starting some type of movement with his accidental advice-heavy lyrics. Remember when he was telling us to just live for today with his cult classic, “The Motto (YOLO)?” His lyrics littered social media status updates and had people blaming their erratic behaviors on the fact that they were taking Drake’s unsolicited advise about only living once. Drake’s latest tune is garnering the same visceral reaction and now folks are out here putting new friendships on the chopping block.

“No New Friends” is rude. I get it–when you’re rich and new people come out of the woodwork expecting to be your new hype/yes man, as the piggybank, you have to be a bit more aware of their intentions. The problem with this repetitive tune lies in the disconnect between a rock star’s life and an average Joe.

“No new friends, no new friends, no new friends, no, no new

Still here with my day one n*ggas, so you hear me say

No new friends, no new friends, no new friends, no, no new

I still ride with my day one n*ggas, I don’t really need

No new friends, no new friends, no new friends, no, no new

I stay down from day one so I say

Fawk all y’all n*ggas except my n*ggas

Fawk all y’all n*ggas except my n*ggas

One more time

Fawk all ya’ll n*ggas except my n*ggas

Fawk all ya’ll n*ggas, stay down from day one so I say

(Fawk a fake friend, where your real friends at? Started!)”

Growth equals change, meaning when you grow in this life, change is inevitable. Sometimes that change leads you away from your old friends–yes, even the ones that have been “down” for you since day one. Understanding this fact takes a bit of life practice.
