Listen, Mp3 Download and get Lyrics to ‘When To Say When’ by Drake. The song was produced by June James.
Drake has come through with another surprise two-pack. Saturday night, the OVO frontman dropped off two new “leaks,” taking to Soundcloud to complete the experience by unveiling his “When To Say When” and “Chicago Freestyle” selections.
The tracks are spliced together in the form of an accompanying music video, directed by Theo Skudra, a preferred collaborator of Drake’s for some time. Notably, the clip features the viral moments captured from Drake’s visit to the Marcy Houses in Brooklyn, bringing to fruition the efforts that he’d been cooking up. You’ll recall that Drake was the subject of some ridicule after a video surfaced of the rapper in front of the famed housing project in Brooklyn. The shot at the moment caught Drizzy constantly looking over his shoulder, sparking claims that he wasn’t too comfortable with his surroundings. He went on to debunk the notion, noting that it was “all love” that day.
Previously, Drake teased “When To Say When” while speaking during his Rap Radar interview with Elliott Wilson and B. Dot Miller “The ones that we connect on most are the ones where I’m just givin’ those life talks,” he noted. “Just to show you I can still rap.” When clips of Drake in Marcy surfaced, B.Dot went on to confirm that he was filming for the same track in question.
Drake – When To Say When (prod. June James)
Yeah, somebody on
Somebody hit me today and they were like:
“Nah, just make sure, you know
You tell me what to do when I get there, you know?”
June, you’re a genius
I said, I respect it, no problem
I got all these blessings, just to give it to others anyway
Know what I’m sayin’?
Yeah, my hand’s always open, for real
Ayy, thirty-three years, I gave that to the game
Thirty-three mil, I save that for the ring
Five hundred weeks, I fill the charts with my pain
Five hundred mil and I fall back in the 6ix
Finally give you niggas the space you need to exist
Michael Jackson shit, but the palace is not for kids
Still women sayin’ it’s childish the way we live
Brought a few Ws to the 6ix
Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is
Baby, Wayne and Tez responsible for this shit
Half the time, I question my consciousness in this shit
Other times, I question if compliments are legit
Full-time, I’m out here confident as a bitch
Tryna make good on the promises that I give
Tryna make sure my accomplices are legit
Register the business in my brother’s name
Thirty-five hunnid in the pocket, that should cover things
Certified loverman, trappin’ out the motherland
Always move right, so my watch is on the other hand
She can try and play it down now, but she was a fan
People wanna know what’s in my pockets, they don’t understand
My assistant always findin’ Percocet and rubber bands
Know my mom might not want to hear how I discover plans
Word to Sandra Graham, no one love you like your mother can
I watched Michael Rubin win a million off a couple hands
I decide what to see next like it’s on demand
I decide what to be next like I’m switchin’ plans
I’ma tell you what you feel next like the weatherman
I will split heads and break necks for my little man
6 God, praying hands like I’m a religious man
But I’m just a sicker man (Six, six, six), wicked man
Look, we can argue back and forth, but who the richer man?
Isn’t that what matters in this world that we livin’ in?
Payin’ those dividends, snakes stay slitherin’
How you plan to make it to the top by just fittin’ it?
How you plan to take a nigga’s spot by just givin’ in?
How you gon’ treat this shit like you gon’ get to live again?
How you gettin’ hype off one hit? Do that shit again
How you got a manager you met after you got the win?
Bet you got some niggas that’ll love you to the bitter end
Bet you got somebody that’s just smarter than your other friends
Give ’em a percentage, see what happens to your blessings then
You just need to stay close to your people
That was there when others could’ve been
Then when others should’ve been
Got a nigga starin’ at the game like, “Damn coach, put him in”
But you never listen, so you niggas going wood again
Got us in the crib, talkin’ ’bout what niggas coulda been, shoulda been
And I got your girl on the second floor, beggin’ me to put it in
And it’s not because all of the money that you wouldn’t spend
And it’s not because I set it up to try and get revenge
It’s because you niggas insecure, you ain’t made men
It’s because, even though you hate on me, we stay friends
It’s because you niggas never learn when to say when, yeah
[Outro: Drake & DJ Firistic Steenie]
For real, facts, you know what I’m sayin
I even took that day, I even Drake

See him? Which means people from back inna di days me comin’ from far with dem mandem Drake, Kardinal Offishall, nuff ah dem
So you know Drake from time then? Yeah man
Okay because I know when he keeps like a party and stuff
He wouldn’t invite you guys, compain and stuff
Yeah man, in the six, yeah man, dem man out there right inna Drake video, man, right beside Rihanna man
That’s right, that’s right
And I respect that because, um (Yeah)
A big lion like him didn’t have to remember, you know?
So that was a nice time (Yeah)
But what mi ah try show you is the people dem ah say “Ah, Drake is not here, guy”

“Hard and soft,” funny, stop it
That mandem is the king (Haha)
