Know Yourself

runnin thru the six with my woes hip hop rap Hip-Hop 2015


Drake first used the phrase “know yourself” in “Jodeci Freestyle” – a single released in the lead-up to his album Nothing Was The Same. On the album, the phrase is also referenced in “From Time,” during a monologue by Baka. Over time Drake has made the line a recurring theme in songs such as “0 to 100.” “Know yourself”/know thyself is also an aphorism that has been attributed to a number of ancient Greek sages, including Socrates, Heraclitus and Pythagoras. Care first about the greatest perfection of the soul. – Socrates The beat used throughout the song was also used without the vocals in the short film Jungle, which Drake released shortly before dropping IYRTITL.

Know Yourself - Drake

[Intro]
Wallets, wallets, wallets, wallets, wallets
Y'all sleepin' in the streets
Shaky warrior

Yeah, this that Oliver 40, Niko shit man, 15 Fort York shit ya know
Boi-1da, what's poppin'?

[Verse 1]
Yeah, yeah
Runnin' through the 6 with my woes
Countin' money you know how it goes
Pray the real live forever man
Pray the fakes get exposed
I want that ferrari then I swerve
I want that bugatti just to hurt
I ain't rockin' my jewelry that's on purpose
Niggas want my spot and don't deserve it
I don't like how serious they take themselves
I've always been me I guess I know myself
Shakiness man I don't have no time for that
My city too turnt up I'll take the fine for that
This been where you find me at
That's been where you find me at
I know a nigga named Johnny Bling
He put me on to the finer things
Had a job sellin' Girbraud jeans
I had a yellow TechnoMarine
Then Kanye dropped, it was polos and backpacks
That's when Ethan was pushin' a Subaru hatchback
Man I'm talkin' way before hashtags

[Hook]

Top boy in this shit, I'm so international
Reps up in here got P Reign and Chubby and TJ and Winnie
Yeah, and you know how that shit go
I might declare it a holiday as soon as Baka get back on the road
Yeah but you know how that shit go
They so irrational, they don't wanna patch it up
They wanna mash it up, woah
My nigga [?] he whip it I ride in the passenger
I'm way up, I stay up, I'm two up, I'm three up

I'm turnin' into a nigga that thinks about money and women
Like twenty four seven, that's where my life took me
That's just how shit happened to go
