Drake on the Exodus of Jeremy Lin

by Salvatore Pane

“I can see it in your eyes: you’re angry. Regret that shit on what you’re feeling now. You mad cause he ain’t like me. Oh you mad cause nobody ever did it like me.”

“I know, I know that you love me, baby. They’re trying to take you away from me. Only over my dead body.”

“They know, they know, they know, they know, they know, they know, they know, they know, they know. Yeah they know yeah. That the real is on the rise!”

“Ok look: I’m honest. Jeremy I can’t lie: I miss you. You and Novak were the only things that I commit to.”

“I might be too strung out on compliments. Overdose on confidence. Started not to give a fuck and stopped fearing the consequence. Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments.”

“I guess we know what Harvard gets us. But seeing my family have it all
took the place of that desire for diplomas on the wall. And really, I think I like who I’m becoming.”

“I know things get hard, but Lin you got it, Lin you got it. There you go!
Can’t you tell by how they looking at you everywhere you go wondering what’s on your mind, it must be hard to be that fine, when all these James Dolans wanna waste your time. It’s just amazing, Lin, and all I can say is…

I’m so, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so,
I’m so proud of you
I’m so, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so,
I’m so proud of you
I’m so, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so,
I’m so proud of you
Everything’s adding up, you’ve been through hell and back, that’s why you’re bad as fuck!”
