Quavo appears to make a reference to his ex-girlfriend Saweetie, as Drake takes another swipe at adidas.
Migos released their third album, Culture III, today, which features a collaboration with Drake on the song “Having Our Way.” Quavo appears to refer to a rumor surrounding his ex Saweetie on the Preme, Wallis Lane, Jack LoMastro, and Azul produced track, while Drake continues to take jabs at adidas.
Quavo raps during his verse:
Load up the bases, now I feel like Cal Ripken (Ayy)
She had it her way, now she out of a Bentley (Skrrt)
(Skrrt-skrrt, get out, ooh)
The sentence appears to be a reference to a now-famous Bentley Quavo who gave Saweetie as a Christmas present when they were dating. When they split up, reports circulated that he had the automobile repossessed, but TMZ debunked the claim. This song, combined with another excerpt in which Quavo raps, “Taking back that Bentley/F-ck those hoes now I gotta act stingy,” appears to back up the notion.
Drake also takes a dig at adidas during his verse elsewhere in the song, rapping:
I’ve been too solid to ever have stripes on my sneak’s, you get what I mean?
Drake isn’t the first to criticize adidas; on Travis Scott’s “SICKO MODE,” he rapped, “Checks over stripes.” In 2018, the Toronto rapper was on the verge of signing a deal with adidas, but things fell through due to Drake’s dispute with Pusha T.
Future, Cardi B, Polo G, and other artists appear on the new Migos album, but Drake and Migos have a lengthy history of working together. They collaborated for the first time on the remix of their 2013 song “Versace,” which Takeoff references in his verse:
They know that I’m havin’ my way (Why?)
I was seventeen on a song with Drake
Drake and Migos collaborated on 2018’s “Walk It Talk It,” as well as separate projects such as Quavo’s verse on Drake’s “Portland.”
