As promised, Drake has released two new songs to celebrate the Toronto Raptors winning the 2019 NBA Finals. Both songs are part of the The Best In The World Pack ‘double’ single (originally referred to as Chip to the 6ix).
The first song is the Deats, E.Y and OZ-produced “Omertà,” which refers to the code of silence and code of honour observed by the mafia. As the lyrics go: “Man, truth be told, I think about it often The petty king, the overseer of many things / I wish that I was playing in a sport where we were getting rings / I wouldn’t have space on either hand for anything / West Hollywood, know my presence is menacing Cosa Nostra, shady dealings / Racketeering, the syndicate got they hand in plenty things / The things that we’ve done to protect the name are unsettling.”
The song appears has several bars that have been perceived as references to Pusha T and last year’s feud with the The Clipse rapper: “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.”
The other track is “Money in the Grave,” featuring Maybach Music Group founder and recording artist, Rick Ross. Drake has collaborated with Rozay numerous times in the past, including “Aston Martin Music” in 2010, and the super-popular “I’m On One,” off DJ Khaled’s 2011 album, We the Best Forever, and the followup, “No New Friends” from Khaled’s 2013 album, Suffering from Success.
There’s also “Fed Up” (2009), “Find Your Love (Remix)” (2010) “Made Men” (2010), “Deuces (Remix)” (2011), “Free Spirit” (2011), “Lord Knows” (2011), “She Will (Remix)” (2011), “Stay Schemin'” (2012), “Diced Pineapples” (2012), “Pop That” (2012), “Empire” (2016), and most recently, “Just Blaze” (2018).
“Money In The Grave” was produced by Asoteric, Ljay Currie and Cydney Christine.
“On the track, Drake and Rick Ross discuss their successes and how people will try to feed off of the rappers’ images even after death. The song title is a reference to burying money with the artists in their coffin so others can’t take it.” (Genius)
