Forever Lyrics

It may not mean nothing to y'all
But understand nothing was done for me
So I don't plan on stopping at all
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine
I'm shutting shit down at the mall
And telling every girl she the one for me
And I ain't even planning to call
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine, ever mine

Last name, Ever
First name, Greatest
Like a sprained ankle boy I ain’t nothing to play with
Started off local but thanks to all the haters
I know G4 pilots on a first name basis
In your city faded off the brown, Nino
She insists she got more class, we know
Swimming in the money come and find me, Nemo
If I was at the club you know I balled, chemo

Dropped the mixtape
That shit sounded like an album
Who'da thought a country-wide tour'd be the outcome
Labels want my name beside the X like Malcolm
Everybody got a deal, I did it without one
Yeah nigga I’m about my business
Killing all these rappers
You would swear I had a hit list
Everyone who doubted me is asking for forgiveness
If you ain’t been a part of it
At least you got to witness
Bitches

It may not mean nothing to y'all
But understand nothing was done for me
So I don't plan on stopping at all
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine
I'm shutting shit down at the mall
And telling every girl she the one for me
And I ain't even planning to call
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine, ever mine

I used to have hood dreams
Big fame, big chains
I stuck my dick inside this life until that bitch came
I went hard all fall like the ball teams
Just so I can make it rain all spring
Y’all seen my story my glory
I had raped the game young
You can call it statutory
When a nigga blow up they gon’ build statures of me
Old money Benjamin Button, whaat, nuttin’
Now superbad chicks giving me McLovin
You would think I ran the world like Michelle’s husband
You would think these niggas would know me when they really doesn’t
Like they was down with the old me no you fucking wasn’t
You’re such a fucking loser
He didn’t even go to class, Bueller
Trade the Grammy plaques just to have my granny back
Remember she had that bad hip like a fanny pack
Chasing the stardom will turn you into a maniac
All the way in Hollywood and I can’t even act
They pull their cameras out and God damn they snap
I used to want this thing forever
Y’all can have it back

It may not mean nothing to y'all
But understand nothing was done for me
So I don't plan on stopping at all
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine
I'm shutting shit down at the mall
And telling every girl she the one for me
And I ain't even planning to call
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine, ever mine

Ok, hello it's da Martian
Space Jam Jordans
I want this shit forever
Wake up and smell the garden
Fresher than the harvest
Step up to the target
If I had one guess then I guess I’m just New Orleans
And I will never stop like I’m running from the cops
Hop up in my car and told my chauffeur to the top
Life is such a fucking roller coaster then it drops
But what should I scream for?
This is my theme park
My minds shine even when my thoughts seem dark
Pistol on my side
You don’t wanna hear that thing talk
Let the king talk
Check the price and pay attention
Lil Wayne, that’s what they got to say or mention
I’m like Nevada in the middle of the summer
I’m resting in the lead I need a pillow and a cover
Shhh, my foot’s sleeping on the gas
No brake pads, no such thing as last

It may not mean nothing to y'all
But understand nothing was done for me
So I don't plan on stopping at all
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine
I'm shutting shit down at the mall
And telling every girl she the one for me
And I ain't even planning to call
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine, ever mine

There they go, back in stadiums as Shady spits his flow
Nuts they go, macadamian they go so ballistic, whoa
We can make them look like Bozos
He's wondering if he should spit this slow
Fuck no! Go for broke
His cup just runneth over, oh no
He ain’t had a real buzz like this
Since the last time that he overdosed
They’ve been waiting patiently for Pinocchio to poke his nose
Back into the game and they know
Rap will never be the same as before
Bashing in the brains of these hoes
And establishing a name as he goes
The passion and the flame is ignited
You can’t put it out once we light it
This shit is exactly what the fuck that I’m talking about when we riot
You dealin’ with a few true villains
Whose stand inside of the booth truth spillin’
And spit true feelings, until our tooth fillings come flying up out of our mouths
Now rewind it!
Payback muthafucka for the way that you got at me how’s it taste?
When I slap the taste out your mouth with the bass so loud that it shakes the place
I’m Hannibal Lecter so just in case you’re thinking of saving face
You ain’t gonna have no face to save by the time I'm through with this place
So, Drake

It may not mean nothing to y'all
But understand nothing was done for me
So I don't plan on stopping at all
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine
I'm shutting shit down at the mall
And telling every girl she the one for me
And I ain't even planning to call
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine, ever mine

It may not mean nothing to yall But understand nothing was done for me So I dont plan on stopping at all I want this shit forever man, ever man, ever man Im shutting shit down at the mall And telling every girl she the one for me And I aint even planning to call I want this shit forever man, ever man, ever man, ever man

On a personal level, i kind of like the chorus. It's very motivating and uplifting. It reinforces ones relentless drive to be successful, despite never really getting any breaks. Carrying one's own weight, and having their painstaking work speak for itself. While i must say - Drake is still developing as an artist; but being on this track with three multi-platinum artists is no small feat. It is recognition and acknowledgment by the industries great - That Drake is here to stick around.

[Drake] Last name ever First name greatest Like a sprained ankle boy I aint nothing to play with Started off local but thanks to all the haters I know G4 pilots on a first name basis In your city faded off the brown, Nino She insists she got more class, we know Swimming in the money come and find me, Nemo If I was at the club you know I ball, chemo Drop the mixtape that shit sounded like a album Who'da thought a country wide tour'd be the outcome Labels want my name beside the X like Malcolm Everybody got a deal, I did it without one Yeah nigga Im about my business Killing all these rappers you would swear I had a hit list Everyone who doubted me is asking for forgiveness If you aint been a part of it at least you got to witness Bitches

faded of the brown, refers to Heroin use...but this verse is very unique in the sense that Drake is doing a lot lyrically. He uses "brown" to refer to a drug, but then, follows up with Nino. Mimicking his early construction of of "last name ever" "first name greatest". He does the same, with "brown, Nino". [Nino Brown (Played by Wesley Snipes) is the main character in the film New Jack City. Nino is the head of the Cash Money Brothers or (CMB) which is a crack dealing network based in Harlem. - Urban dictionary]

"Swimming in the money come and find me, Nemo" -- I feel this verse sets up Kayne's stanza.

The next few verses by Drake, are about his success, and how he has risen from mixtapes, and not taking other peoples deconstructive criticism seriously.

Now Drake's stanza, starts to diminish on content and value as soon as he starts narrating his success. Lyrically, this "success theme" is so cliche that it is beyond pastiche (blank parody [imitation]).This is very atypical of hip-hop/rap artists. I personally don't give two turds of reason, to hear about how an artist has came into the scene. I don't want to hear it in my music, i can look it up on wikipedia. Yet, i don't condone the chorus, because its secular enough to be uplifting rather than cliched narration.

Also, the way Drake says "bitches" (at the end), sounds off rhythm. He shouldn't have enunciated as slow a two syllable word, but rather more nonchalantly.

Chorus]

[Kanye West] I used to have hood dreams Big fame, big chains I stuck my dick inside this life until that bitch came I went hard all fall like the ball teams Just so I can make it rain all spring Yall seen my story my glory I had raped the game young You can call it statutory When a nigga blow up they gon build statures of me Old money Benjamin Button, whaat, nuttin Now superbad chicks giving me McLovin You would think I ran the world like Michelles husband You would think these niggas would know me when they really doesnt Like they was down with the old me no you fucking wasnt Youre such a fucking loser He didnt even go to class Bueller Trade the Grammy plaques just to have my granny back Remember she had that bad hip like a fanny pack Chasing the stardom will turn you into a maniac All the way in Hollywood and I cant even act They pull their cameras out and God damn they snap I used to want this thing forever yall can have it back

He personifies, life as intercourse with a woman, that he constantly is "fulfilling".

West, tends to exploit excessive metaphors and similes, creating very visual verses that have very gruesome and jarring connotations. aka "statutory rape"

He makes a cinematic pop cultural reference the film "superbad" - Contextually, this very primitive verse detracts from Kayne's grandeur (not that he has much). Hearing this line, just brings the emphatic value of his stanza down significantly. I feel though, people that are easy to amuse, and unable to differentiate good music, from "epic" music, will easily be amused and relish in being able to recognize the reference. Trust me - It's "superbad".

"You would think I ran the world like Michelles husband You would think these niggas would know me when they really doesnt"

He makes a reference to President Obama, via "Michelle's Husband". The following few line subtly diss the president, and all the critic's and "haters". Repetitively, emphasizing that they don't "know him". ---- WHATEVER the fu*k is that suppose to mean? I don't think Kayne even knows himself, yet alone do i want hear about him "humbling his ways". Hasn't he been trying to be humble, ever since he made it onto the scene? Kayne just needs to find a bitch (maybe a wife) that will put him in his place. haha.

"Trade the Grammy plaques just to have my granny back." You probably didn't feel that way, when you were trying to get one. And what's the significance of trading a plaque for someones life back. It's just a weak verse. Materialistic does not equate humanistic. I know that Kayne is trying to say that he'd trade his success and fame, for his grandmother back; but i don't buy it, it's just weak.

Initially Kayne sounds "normal" however as the stanza progresses, his voice, tone, and attitude becomes disgruntled and raspy. It's like he's in bitter agony, almost being "emo".

If Kayne doesn't f*ck up for one year; i'd give him my granmy.

[Chorus]

[Lil Wayne] Ok, hello it's da Martian Space jam Jordans I want this shit forever wake up and smell the garden Fresher than the harvest Step up to the target If I had one guess than I guess Im just New Orleans And I will never stop like Im running from the cops Hop up in my car and told my chauffeur to the top Life is such a fucking roller coaster then it drops But what should I scream for this is my theme park My minds shine even when my thoughts seem dark Pistol on my side you dont wanna hear that thing talk Let the king talk check the price and pay attention Lil Wayne thats what they got to say or mention Im like Nevada in the middle of the summer Im resting in the lead I need a pillow and a cover Shhh, my foots sleeping on the gas No brake pads, no such thing as last

Lil wayne, talking about Martians, will not get you abducted.

(More to come)

[Chorus]

[Eminem] There they go, back in stadiums as Shady spits his flow Nuts they go, macadamian they go so ballistic, whoa We can make them look like Bozos He's wondering if he should spit this slow Fuck no! Go for broke His cup just runneth over, oh no He aint had a real buzz like this since the last time that he overdosed Theyve been waiting patiently for Pinocchio to poke his nose Back into the game and they know Rap will never be the same as before Bashing in the brains of these hoes And establishing a name as he goes The passion and the flame is ignited You cant put it out once we light it This shit is exactly what the fuck that Im talking about when we riot You dealin with a few true villains Whose stand inside of the booth truth spillin And spit true feelings, until our tooth fillings come flying up out of our mouths Now rewind it! Payback muthafucka for the way that you got at me hows it taste? When I slap the taste out your mouth with the bass so loud that it shakes the place Im Hannibal Lecter so just in case youre thinking of saving face You aint gonna have no face to save by the time I'm through with this place So Drake

I don't even know where to begin. Eminem, makes a Koenigsegg look like a joke.

[Chorus]

My Interpretation

upon further research, this tune is going to be a part of Lebron James documentary, and Wayne makes a reference to the "King" in his verses.

Thought your analysis was quite impressive until you got all emotional in regards to West and then pretty much said nothing notable about Wayne and Eminem's pieces. :/

gawwd..at least u tried to break down this song for some of us..was gonna scream if i were to read another lil comment talkin about eminem 'raping' the song, without mentioning why..damn..

eminem kills this one!! xD best one on the track:)

them others are meh.. lol

eminem rocks<33

An error occured.

I think that the point of this song is that Drake is new to the "game" (rapping) so he;s going to take full advantage of it while the other guys are more experienced and they know it's not all fun and games so they are trying to tell Drake that it's not everything everyone says it is but he doesn't want to listen because no one's done anything to him yet so why does he care. Love the song and this is just what I think is the meaning. I have to agree with many in that Eminem was amazing but I think everyone else was amazing too I have to say I'm biased I loved Lil' Wayne.

An error occured.

You may find this far fetched if you don't listen closely, but I honestly think that is the sickest verse Eminem has ever done. Maybe not the favorite, surely not the most popular, but my spine tingles every time I listen to it. Try keeping up with him, it's simply mind blowing...

An error occured.

People are too biased towards eminem because he's the biggest star? I mean, of course he's brilliant but he doesn't "kill" kanye and Wayne, they are fantastic and hold their own up. This song has the three rappers that saved rap, the best ones around atm in fact. Thank GOD eminem is back!!! And lil'Wayne's gonna be outta prison soon!!!

My Opinion

love this song eminem owns it

An error occured.

All the rappers are telling us how stardom has changed them and their lives, Drake starts of by saying how hard he has worked to make his dream a realalty. He says how his life is different and how he is enjoying it. Kayne then takes the next verse by saying how he has lost contact will all his old friends and rarely gets to see his granny...he pretty much says how he wants his old life back and wish he never became famous. Lil wayne is on the same lines as drake. He likes his new life and makes a heap of medafore... his verse in the song is not the best..however it is okay. Eminem as usual delivered a great rap...he was saying that the other rappers and nothing compared to him...he is the 'REAL DEAL'. this song is about to be certain about what to want in life and to becareful what you wish for
