Drake - Light Up ft. Jay-Z (Prod. by Tone Mason/40) - Thank Me Later

Toronto, ON – We’ve been sitting on this record for a while and now, since it has leaked, we’re happy to post it as HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day. “Light Up” by Drake featuring Jay-Z off the forthcoming album release Thank Me Later. The song was produced by Noah “40” Shebib and Tone Mason. Click the jump for the “Light Up” song lyrics and pics.

There is also a shorter version of this track… likely for possible radio play, or simply another cut. Hear it below.

Thank Me Later will be released on June 15th 2010.

“They always tell me, nobody’s working as hard as you / And even though I laugh it off, man it’s probably true / Cause while all of my closest friends out partyin’ / I’m just here makin’ all the music that they party to” – Drake

Song Lyrics

DRAKE VERSE
I been up for 4 days, gettin’ money both ways
Dirty and clean, I can use a glass of cold spades
Rolex and chauffeurs and low fades
I keep thinkin’ how young can you die from old age
They always tell me, nobody’s working as hard as you
And even though I laugh it off, man it’s probably true
Cause while all of my closest friends out partyin’
I’m just here makin’ all the music that they party to
But party on party on, all night nigga
I got these new rappers nervous, prom night nigga
I gross higher than these fuckin’ grown man liars
Story tellers, they ain’t even need a camp fire
Un, but I just wanna tell the truth
Before one of these haters load a couple shells and shoot
This shit feel like when Fredo Starr was in Sunset Park stuntin’ hard in his yellow goose
And I’m a mother fuckin’ miss target
But a target, none the less and I just started
Was that directed at moi, can’t be
They must be talking to themselves Hov, hands free
Yea and I’m just fillin’ up this daily planner
Gettin’ busy, cause I’m a star, no spangle banner
Jealous dudes get the talkin’ in they music
And I just say I wrote it for your girlfriends, Kelsey Grammer
Yea that’s what life becomes when you doin’ you
Welcome to hollywood, don’t let this town ruin you
If you pillow talkin’ with the woman that are screwing you
Just know that she gon’ tell another nigga when she thru with u
Don’t get impatient when it take too long
Drink it all, even when it tastes too strong
I gotta feel alive, even if it kills me
Promise to always give you me, the real me

JAY Z VERSE
Oww, hoes turn they heads like owls
I’m the man of the hour
Triple entondra, don’t even ask me how
Con Edison flow, I’m connected to a high power
Bright lights a make your whole city light up
A trillion watt light bulb, when I’m in the night club
I just landed in that G-4 50
Caught the Mayweather fight cause the satellite was crispy
Y’all could miss me with the money talk
The smart monies on Hov, fuck what the dummy’s talk
Un, I don’t do too much bloggin’
I just run the town, I don’t do too much joggin’
I ain’t got a scar yet
You fuck around with me and my dogs is far fetched
Drake, here’s how they gon’ come at you
With silly rap fools, tryin’ to distract you
In disguise, in the form of a favor
The Barzini meetin’, watch for the traitors
I done see it all, done it all
That’s why none of these dumb dumbs can gun him off
The summers ours, the winter too
Top down in the winter, that’s what winners do
And to these niggas, I’m like Windows 7
You let them tell it and they invented you
And since no good deed goes unpunish
I’m not as cool with niggas as I once was
I once was cool as the funds was
But these bright lights turned me to a monster
Sorry momma, I’m promised it wouldn’t change me
But I would of went insane
Had I remained the same me
Fuck niggas, bitches too
All I got is this money, this a do
