Drake dives into some personal aspects of his life in "Lemon Pepper Freestyle" ft. Rick Ross, like raising his son Adonis with Sophie Brussaux

"I sent her the child support, she sent me the heart emoji," Drake says in the song.

"Yeah, dropped him off at school, big day for my lil' man, recess hits, daddy prolly made another M, school bell rings and I'm out there to get him again."

"Yeah, teacher-parent meetings, wives get googly-eyed, 
regardless of what they husbands do to provide, askin' if I know Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj."

"My city love me like DeMar DeRozan," he says, in reference to the former Raptor that fans hold close to their hearts. DeRozan seemed to approve, sharing it on his Instagram story.

Listeners quickly took to social media to express their love for the track. It even trended on Twitter on Friday, with NBA veteran Kendrick Perkins, the Milwaukee Bucks, French Montana, and many others weighing in.  

One Twitter user wrote that "Drake spit one of the best verses of his career on 'Lemon Pepper Freestyle.'"

Another floated the idea that Drake deserves to be our prime minister because of how great the song is.

Of the three songs released, "What's Next" is the only one accompanied by a music video, which features the rapper touring Toronto's iconic landmarks.
