Drake Debuts New Verse at GQ Cover Shoot

Drake

Drake celebrated his second GQ cover by performing a never-before-heard verse during his photo shoot for the magazine’s first-ever Style Bible. Looking dapper in a tailored suit, Drizzy debuted “A Little Favour,” where he raps about women, getting paid half a mill a show, and buying Warhols for his crib.

“No love for these bitches I said this year it’s all bidness/ It is a shame that a couple of ‘em are off limits/ No offense to my ni**a/ It’s just the industry’s small, we all lust for the same women,” he rhymes, while confessing to hooking up with the same girls as his mentor.

“I know I got a couple things that Lil Wayne dipped in/ Ain’t ashamed to admit it.”

Watch him look sharp while delivering the slick verse below.
