Drake explains why he is the best in the world pack on his third extended play (EP) The Best in the World Pack. This EP contains the dual singles “Omertà” and “Money in the Grave”. The Best in the World Pack EP marks Drake’s first release outside of Cash Money Records and Young Money Records much to everyone’s surprise. Honestly this EP should be honoured for music industry achievements in Canada for 2019. Perfect trap beats over electronic is what you can expect to hear.

The song Omertà is one of Drake’s more unique songs with a visceral feeling and a sense of pop. Omertà has some of the hardest hitting bass for a trap song. The bass fits in with the hi-hats and snares of those trap beats in perfect synchronization. Omertà is a practice attributed to the Mafia that includes an oath to staying silent in regards to illegal activities or unlawful practices, regardless of the consequences.

Look at Drake’s history. He’s been a mainstay in the rap game for more than 10 years. At least since the 2010s. He has garnered himself legendary status in the music industry and rap game. He is tryna see what’s different from the next person and visualizes himself as the richer version of his current self. The only thing he sees is custom made luxury jewelry from Tiffany & Co. He’s probably going to purchase a few OVO owl pendants.

Aside from the obvious, haters are going to test his patience and integrity. A lot of pain, a lot of passion. A lot of relaxin’ while other niggas is overreacting. Drake has that’ll hit you outta nowhere like epiphany. Changes in scenery. Playas and enemies like Pusha T and Tyga keep cursing Drake behind his back. Drake will respond by smacking them back with a ‘diss track’.

These lyrics are referencing how haters are going to test his patience and integrity.

That’s some insight for y’all even if no one’s askin’
Last year, niggas really feel like they rode on me
Last year, niggas got hot ’cause they told on me
I’m ’bout to call the bluff of anybody that fold on me
I’m buyin’ the buildin’ of every door that closed on me
Yeah, Loro Piana and Brioni, the one and only

My enemies send each other the texts that they could never send me
I’m bankin’ two million a show for the residency
Nevada gaming commission in a frenzy

My enemies send each other the texts that they could never send me
I’m bankin’ two million a show for the residency
Nevada gaming commission in a frenzy
How much money can this casino lend me?
Rippin’ markers up over shots of the Henny

LeBron James is regarded as one of the greatest active basketball players in the world one of the best ever. Drake drew drawn parallels between music and hoops with these lyrics: “Bronny buyin’ up Brentwood like he still in Akron/That’s how we continue down the path of Jordan and Jackson”

Drake sees a tailor twice a week. This tailor is like a homie to Drake. My tailor see me twice a week, he like my homie. This tailor is forever grateful and thankful. She wears a diamond necklace on her ankle. That bitch is trendy. These lyrics highlight that.

My tailor see me twice a week, he like my homie
Forever grateful, forever thankful
Diamond necklace, but she wears it on her ankle
The bitch is trendy

Drake displays some of this clever, witty, and whimsical wordplay with these lyrics. Notice how the words at the end of each line rhyme?

The rise to the top of this mountain has been biblical
I don’t carry cash ’cause the money is digital
It’s the American Expresser, the debt collector
Hailin’ all the way from the Mecca
Got something for Trudy and Rebecca

Vivid memory, can someone send me a real nigga interlude?
To me, Benihana is pigeon food
This not a forgivin’ mood
So much, we gotta count the 20s up in a different room
I am just a body that my brothers are livin’ through
Keepin’ my connections strictly physical
Everyone that’s married is miserable
I know that that is not a lifestyle I can give into

Drake and Rick Ross discuss their successes and how other people will try to ride off the coattails of their success instead of paving their own ways for their careers even after death. Lil CC produced that slap in with the bass. Notice the kick drums. Money in the Grave served as a “celebration release” after the NBA Championship win of the Toronto Raptors back in 2019.

People originally thought Drake’s raps wasn’t factual facts until they sat with and listened to the bars of his he spoke. Drake really has put a couple niggas in they place even though he has lapped every nigga in the race. Drake was on top when that shit meant a lot. Still on top and these niggas wanna swap. Niggas wanna swap like it’s Slauson or Watts. Drake tells us, “I don’t wanna change ’cause I’m good where I’m at. I’m always good where I’m at.”

Rick Ross is really livin’ large and not just in size. A couple of figures. Killer calls and collect (call and collect). Rick Ross has got the hookup and there’s really no limit.

I rate this EP 5/5*****!
