    Draft Day
    Released

    By Drake

      About "Draft Day"

      Drake released the Lauryn Hill-sampling "Draft Day" on April 1, 2014, and predictably, the subject of the song is the NFL Draft. But Drake's freeform and conversational lyrics flow in many directions over the course of the track, referencing Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, name-checking Chance The Rapper, and telling listeners about the last time he "ate raw oysters". At the time of its release, the track appeared to be an internet exclusive.

      Lyrics for Drake - "Draft Day"

      Draft day, Johnny Manziel
      Five years later how am I the man still
      Draft day, A. Wiggins
      Fuck that other side bitch we stay winnin'
      Aww man, you know I had to do it for you
      You know I had to do it for ya
      Yeah, suits and ties yelling out "pay the guys"
      Man I had to do it for ya
      You know I had to do it for ya
      You know I had to do it for ya
      Aww man, aww man, aww man, man
      You know I had t–

      Sometimes I laugh with God about how you can't stop me
      I'm his darkest angel probably but he still got me
      I'm gettin' mine but still I better lives
      And shit I set aside to make sure my people are gettin' by
      Brunch with some Qatar royals and my cup is all oil
      You know it's real when your niggas will take the fall for you
      All loyal so you keep egging me on
      And we gonna have to crack a shell just to prove to you, you ain't hard boiled
      Last night I tried some raw oysters
      Man that boy growin' up quick, that boy know he the shit
      That boy singin' on every song when he know he can spit
      That boy manifested it, that boy knew it was written
      That boy did it on purpose
      That boy know that they shittin' on you, and they can't get past you
      You should've followed all my moves, you won't realize 'til after
      And if I left shit to chance I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper
      No offense cause I don't know that nigga
      I'm focused on makin' records and gettin' bigger
      Just hits, no misses, that's for the married folk
      Tell 'em fix my suite up cause I'm comin' home
      I heard they talkin' crazy, I was out of town
      You know they love to pop all that shit when I'm not around
      But when I'm here, not a sound
      That'll make me snap, jot it down
      Go in the booth and lay a body down
      Know some Somalis that say we got it wallahi
      Get us donuts and coffee, we'll wait for him in the lobby
      And I gotta tell him chill, Sprite got me on payroll
      Let that man live, they say "Okay if you say so"
      See whatever I say goes
      I play like I'm on 'roids, no Canseco
      No Oakland A's though, shout out the Bay though
      I think I'm on my eighth flow, just watch me paint flow
      We all do it for the art so I can never hate though
      Signin' off on more deals than a lawyer with a heavy case load
      How the game turn into the Drake show?
      Dog, what the fuck happen to so and so, where did they go?
      They too worried 'bout bitches and fashion, they go missin' in action
      And then you never notice they missin'
      On some Hunger Games shit I would die for my district
      Jennifer Lawrence you can really get it
      I mean forreal, girl you know I had to do it for yah
      You know I had to do it for yah
      You know I had to
      Oh wait sidebar, left some beat at the end
      So that all of you fuck niggas could loop it and get your lies off

      Draft day, Johnny Manziel

      You know I had to do it for ya
      Yeah, suits and ties yelling out "pay the guys"
      Man I had to do it for ya
      You know I had to do it for ya
      You know I had to do it for ya
      Aww man, aww man, aww man, man
      You know I had t–

      That’s why I don’t read the news, it’s garbage
      And the editor that wrote the thing, he’s garbage
      Got guys on my back about schedule, saying it’s too tough
      Well guess what?
      It’s Division-1 football!
      It’s the SEC!
      Heck, you pledged, didn’t ya?
      Go play intramurals, brother
