Drake Fair is in the top 1 of music charts around the world. Before, he was not known so much for his musical discoveries. If not, instead of for love (has he been Rihanna’s romantic partner ?), now everyone hums his songs nonstop. And it is that he has changed the rap scene drastically. His early songs weren’t as aggressive as most American MCs, although they talked about women. They were not as humiliating as their colleagues, and their lyrics expressed love, pain, and fears. In short, their feelings and emotions towards a woman (I emphasise it because it is not very common in this musical genre). Other rappers call him “the soft rapper” for this reason.
His real name is Aubrey Graham. He is from Toronto, Canada, born on October 24, 1986. He started as an actor, not as a musician and found a role on the Canadian television series Degrassi. Drake is the brainchild of works by artists like Jamie Foxx, Trey Songz, and Alicia Keys. The song ‘ Un-Thinkable’ by Key writes by the rapper in honour of Nicky Minaj. During his childhood, he and his mother lived rough and poor. So Drake set himself a (rather ambitious) goal: by the age of 25, he should have $25 million. He not only fulfilled it, but he far exceeded it. He tells us in his song ‘ Started from the Bottom. ‘
His father, Dennis Graham, is African American, was a drummer, and worked with Jerry Lee Lewis. Her mother is Sandi, an educator, and Drake adores her. She is Canadian and Jewish. Seeing them together is so adorable!
The real meaning behind Drake’s ‘Fair Trade’ with Travis Scott
The dynamic duo has teamed up again for another smash hit worthy of an array of Instagram captions. Toronto native Drake (aka Aubrey Graham) and Houston native Travis Scott (aka Jacques Bermon Webster II) now have a fourth collaboration along with their new song, “Fair Trade,”. From the sixth studio album of Drake, “Certified Lover Boy.”
Drake and Travis Scott seem to have the magic formula under control after receiving high praise for their other collaborations like “Company,” “Portland,”. Especially “Sicko Mode,” certified by the RIAA in December 2020. You can feel the smoky heat of their Air pods as Drizzly and La Flame decides to team up and use their Scorpio x Taurus melancholy powers forever. (after all, they’re sister signs to those familiar with astrology).
None of his lyrics is light work, even if they have so quickly taken to listeners, with lots of double meanings and metaphors that are more than meets the eye. It takes a couple of listens for the words to sink into the audience’s subconscious and click. We’re here to break down what Fair Trade means, so you don’t have to.
Travis Scott prefers to leave negativity behind.
There is a theme of betrayal and negative energy. That Drake and Travis Scott want to leave behind in “Fair Trade.” Scott is tired of being tired and having to watch his back all the time for people in his circle who betray him. Instead of worrying about his crew’s loyalty and personal mistakes. He would get over all those negative things weighing him down. “Worried, sick, I’m sick of worrying (sick, sick) / It’s just a worry, I’d rather bury ’em / I’m talking about fake friends and skeletons (Yeah),” he raps via Genius.
Scott maintains this theme of looking beyond the dark and into the light by quietly having fun with people. He doesn’t need to keep it up. “In the crib by myself, this shit gon’ sink / Scrolling through my call log, with emojis. How I’m keeping them / Del Mar like the beach where my hoe was, but I prefer them / That butterfly emoji holds me back and all my babies them (Yeah). He says of some high hats and traps beats. That could be a nod to her baby mom, makeup mogul Kylie Jenner. They got matching butterfly tattoos with the AstroWorld rapper to symbolise her relationship, according to her 2002 YouTube video.
Scott changes and speeds up his flow at the end of his verse to clarify that he’s not putting up with any more nonsense.
Drake is finding peace, even if it means losing friends
Travis Scott clarifies that he cares too much about people who don’t deserve his loyalty, and Drake is on the same page. Sample a verse and chorus from Charlotte Day Wilson’s 2019 song “Mountains. Which reads, “I don’t understand why you blame me / take me as I am. I’m the same me / Pointless sight to see / Search through the valley (Look in the valley) / Do you hear me call (Do you hear me call) / Won’t you come to get me? (Won’t you get me?) / Please don’t leave me (Please don’t forsake me) / Suddenly (Suddenly) / My heart is breaking (Breaking) / I feel it coming, me, me”, via Genius.
Drake questions why the person he cares about doesn’t go the extra mile and instead hurts him and blames him for who he is when he’s been the same person all along. Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he flips the script and decides he’s better off without those people. Gaining a sense of peace he once lost, which sounds like a better trade-off for him in the long run. “I’ve been losing friends and found peace (Ah-ah, ah), But honestly, that sounds like a fair deal to me,” he says via Genius. Seeing the widely receptive reviews of “Certified Lover Boy,” we think Drake made the right decision to cast himself last.
