We all know Drake’s song Know Yourself has brought many of us to think, what is a woe? and why is Drake running through six with this? Well, ponder no longer because the Toronto rapper, producer and loose OVO sound affiliate Devontee has taken the time to define the meaning of the controversial three letter word “woes” in an interview with Noisey.
“Woe is my crew. It stands for ‘working on excellence.’ It’s just my whole brand and my whole movement and my way of life for everyone. I want everyone to work on excellence. So, all my friends are my Woes and I feel anybody working on excellence in life is a Woe in life as well.
So when you’re listening to Drake’s “Know Yourself,” just know he’s not being the emotional Aubrey we all know, and keep in mind he’s scheming on excellence!
