Drake ’5 AM In Toronto’: Rapper Disses MTV’s ‘Hottest in the Game’ List

Drake. Oh Drake.

Say what you want about the Cash Money MC, but some of his music is just undeniably hot. Case in point, “5 AM In Toronto,” which he unleashed on the world early this morning (March 7), before dawn.

Why he chose to release the Boi-1da-produced cut on this particular day? Well, that may have to do with where he placed — number five, to be exact — on MTV’s much-debated “Hottest MCs in the Game” list.

It seems Drizzy felt he should have been placed higher. Or he doesn’t care about the list at all. He’s beyond rap lists, to hear him tell it. He says as much on his new cut, spitting:

“I swear, fuck them niggas this year/ I made Forbes list, nigga / Fuck your list, everything’s lookin’ gorgeous.”
Elsewhere, he takes shots at the Weeknd, whom he’s seemingly had a falling out with.

“I show love, never get the same out of niggas/ Guess it’s funny how money can make change out of niggas/ For real, some nobody started feeling himself/ A couple somebodies started killing themself/ A couple albums dropped those are still on the shelf/ I bet them shits would have popped if I was willing to help.”

And there are thinly-veiled shots at Jay-Z:

“I’m headed to the bank nigga/ Sinatra lifestyle, I’m just being Frank, nigga.”

Addresses his beef with Chris Brown:

“Bad press during the summer over allegations/ I ain’t lyin’, my nigga, my time is money/ That’s why I ain’t got time for a nigga whose time is comin.”

And his rumored romance with Rihanna:

“Where you think she at when she ain’t with you?/ Wildin’, doin’ shit that’s way out of your budget/ Owl sweaters inside her luggage, you gotta love it/ Damn, this shit could go on a tape.”

Just listen to this for yourself. Vicious.
