The Motto Lyrics

[Drake]
I’m the fuckin man, you don’t get it do ya?
Type of money everybody acting like they knew ya
Go Uptown, New York City Biiitch
Some Spanish girls love me like I’m Aventura
Tell Uncle Luke I’m out in Miami too
Clubbing hard, Fuckin’...

    There may be some hidden meaning there, perhaps a commentary about young African-Americans gunned down by jittery police officers, but I failed to find it in the ostensibly misogynistic lyricism. The line about swimming in vaginal fluid evoked images of a Grade B science-fiction movie and its remake, starring Allison Hayes and Daryl Hannah, respectfully. Unless, of course, the "pussy" referred to vacuous and insincere promises made by smarmy politicians while the "butt" may serve up two of its meanings, e.g., the grip of a ballistic weapon wielded by racist and trigger-happy cops. "She" could refer to the nation itself, as rendered in "God Bless America." Or the whole thing could simply hark us back to a similar version of "Stagger Lee and Billy DeLyons," in which a woman forces a man to perform cunnilingus on her at the point of a revolver.
