“You singin’ ass rap niggas simp’n all the time/fuckin’ up the game, niggas fuckin’ up my name.” -Dom Kennedy (Real Estates)
One of the things that Drake is often praised for is how honest he is in his lyrics. Every time he rap-sings a vulnerable line, the seats on women’s Vickie’s (I heard they have a crazy sale going on by the way) get moist and dudes are ready to award him with a purple heart. I call this being a simp (a soft/sensitive pimp), but to each his own.
Just last week Drake dropped “Marvin’s Room,” a song about being intoxicated and drunk-calling an old flame who’s already moved on. Not only do the kids love Drizzy’s latest bucket of tears, but other artists are already covering the tune.
Now I’m not saying I’ve never had a simp moment (I’ve had my fair share), but Drake is O.D. with it.
Hit the jump to peep the 5 stages of a simp Drake relationship.
1) Rich Boy – To the Floor ft. Lloyd & Drake: The “It aint trickin’ if you got it” stage
When you meet a girl & tell her of all the benefits that come along with dating you.
“I can tell her things and treat her right, you can get whatever baby ‘member you with me tonight.”
2) Jamie Foxx – Fall For Your Type ft. Drake: The “Saving Silverman” stage
When your friends tell you you’re a simp & you ignore the warnings.
“That’s why Ima take you anywhere you wanna go, let you meet my friends, so they can lecture me again about how reckless I have been.”
3) Chris Brown – Deuces (RMX) ft. Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabolous, Rick Ross & Andre 3000: The “500 Days of Summer” stage
When the relationship starts getting rocky & you tell her you’ll do anything to salvage it.
“I’m willing to work it out however long it takes you, you feel like you miss those happy days well girl that makes twooooooooo of us.”
4) Drake – Brand New: The “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?” stage
When you breakup & feel like she literally ripped your heart out…….bitch.
“I hate hearing stories ‘bout who you’ve been with. That’s when I gotta hide, what I’m feeling inside.”
5) Drake – Marvin’s Room: The “Kanye/Amber Rose/Wiz Khalifa” stage
When you’re salty ’cause you laced her with the finest things & now she’s getting piped by someone you’re familiar with.
“Fuck that nigga that you love so bad, I know you still think about the times we had.”
