LOS ANGELES — In “You & The 6,” a touching new song directed toward his mother, Drake raps about how she raised him alone in Toronto after she divorced his father.The 28-year-old also mentions being betrayed by the media and people in general, comparing his resulting attiude to the bloody HBO drama Games of Thrones.
“You & The 6” is from Drake’s new mixtape album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, which he unexpectedly dropped on iTunes late Thursday night. And as GoT fans are well aware of, “The Rains of Castamere” episode — often described as the “Red Wedding” episode in reference to the events that transpired in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series — included the gory throat-slashing of Catelyn Stark.
I pull the knife out my back and cut they throat with it, momma
I’m Game of Thrones with it, momma
I’m Home Alone with it, momma
I really hate using this tone with you, momma
I really hate getting aggressive on this phone with you, momma
