Top 10 Drake 'Thank Me Later' Quotes

Updated on October 10, 2010

Drake's highly anticipated debut album, 'Thank Me Later' has officially released today, June 15 and it was well worth the wait! I've got to say this is one of the best and most complete albums I've heard in awhile and I wouldn't be surprised if he sold over a million copies the first week. The album is full of catchy melodies and choruses along with great rapping full of wordplay, personal insight, punchlines and realness. I was surprised with how R&B it sounded but I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed everything. My favorite tracks were Fireworks, The Resistance, Light Up, and Unforgettable, not to mention Thank Me Later. There's not but a couple of tracks that I think don't stand out but nonetheless the album is a fine piece of work which is the reason I made this list of best Drake Quotes and Drake Lyrics.

Top 5 'Thank Me Later' Quotes

  1. "Don't be impatient when it takes too long

    Promise to always give you me, the real me"
    'Light Up'
    - Drake
  2. "All in all, I learned a lesson from it though
    You never see it coming, you just get to see it go

    Now I can see it in her eyes; fireworks"
    - Drake
  3. "I am, still here with who I started with
    The game needed life; I put my heart it in

But I'll prolly still be the man when everything is over
So I'm ridin' through the city with my high beams on
Can you see? Can you see me? Get your Visene on
Y'all just do not fit the picture, get your widescreen on

Man they treat me like a legend, am I really this cold?
I'm really too young to be feelin' this old"
- Drake

"Tell me can we 'Kick It' like Ali Shaheed and Phife Dawg
People really hate when a backpack rapper get rich and start livin' that life dog
Feels like when you get into that paper, Hip Hop hate ya
They would do it just like I do if they could, its in our nature
Young and rich and outa control, out in LA blowin' clouds of the killa
I came up in the underground though, so I'ma spend another 10,000 for Dilla
Call me over-rated or created or too jaded
Because any way you put it, b*tch I made it, YUUP"

- Drake

"Shootin' stars all around her, fire, comets
When she comes around she 'Shuts It Down'; Onyx
'Shut It Down'

And me and my latest girl agreed to go our separate ways, so I'm 'Single'
Thinkin' bout what we had and missin' you

Cause while all of my closest friends out partyin'
I'm just here makin' all the music that they party to
But party on, party on all night n*gga
I got these new n*ggas nervous; Prom night n*gga
I grow tired of these fuckin' grown man liers
Story-tellers, they ain't even need a campfire"

Wait until the sun goes down we gon' make this b*tch light up"
'Light Up'
- Drake

"Tell me, what's really goin' on
Drizzy back up in this thing, I'm ready, what's happenin'?
Gone for surgery but now I'm back again
I'm bout my paper like a muh-f*ckin' scratch and win
World series attitude, champagne bottle life
Nothin's ever changin' so tonight is like tomorrow night
I will have a model wife, yo b*tch is as hot as
Every time you see me, I look like I hit the lotto twice"
'Miss Me'
- Drake

"Thank me later, yeah I know what I said
But later doesn't come so instead, its okay, you can thank me now"
'Thank Me Now'
- Drake

"Mahalo from the hardest act to follow
Lately I've been drinkin' like there's a message in a bottle
Alohas to women with no ties
To men that know well, that means there are no lies
You can thank me now for all the info I give to you n*ggas
I'm on the brink of influential, I'm here for you n*ggas
I guess a hit doesn't add up to a career for you n*ggas
I must've been hard to watch, what a year for you n*ggas
Its December 31st and we in Miami just meditatin'
You got your resolutions, we just got reservations"
'Thank Me Now'
- Drake

"Searchin' for the meanin', you'll find it next to me
They tell me I'm the hottest, guess we finally get to see
I'm feelin' like Nas, who am I to disagree?
They say the doors all open up soon as you find the missin' key
That's prolly why I'm in this b*tch just shinin'
Jump into the sky and put the stars into alignment
I rep the ATF incase you gotta be reminded
And the band-wagon's full, but you can try to run behind it"
'Thank Me Now'
- Drake

      you should add the quote:

      "I'm 23 with a money tree

      Growin' more too, I just planted a hundred seeds

      It's ironic cuz my mother was a florist

      and that's how she met my pops and now my garden is enormous"
