0 to 100/The Catch Up
Drake splits his thoughts in half with "0 to 100/The Catch Up." In the first half, he talks about life at the top; he no longer needs to rap to pay the bills, he's the best in the game. He doesn't take his time, he skyrockets. The second half, he slows his pace and looks around at the detractors, realizing haters only hate because he's the best.
