By now, everyone knows Playboi Carti feature on this song doesn’t actually maintain the standard that had been going on for a while. I usually joke on the first two lines but this time I’m serious. The signature high-pitched baby voice isn’t doing any justice to him. Let’s learn the meaning behind the lyrics of the song ‘Pain 1993’ by Drake & Playboi Carti, only at Laviasco, which is the most talked about at the moment.
Introduction: Pain 1993 Lyrics
The overly hyped song ‘Pain 1993’ was teased by Drake and Playboi Carti since 2019. After the release, fans just ranted on how awful the Playboi Carti feature sounds on the track. The signature high-pitched baby voice sounds extremely forced and inauthentic with over the top reverbs. In a nutshell, the whole mixtape of Drake along with this song sounds trash. It could have been better. Drake could have done better.
Pain 1993 Lyrics Meaning
[Intro/ Chorus: Drake & Playboi Carti]
“Crodie” is Crip jargon for the term ‘brother’ as it modifies the term “Brodie,” reinstating the B for a C. Drake gives a shoutout to his long-time collaboration/ partnership with the director Lil X. Lil X is the man behind the production of everyone’s beloved ‘Hotline Bling‘, ‘God’s Plan‘, ‘Started From The Bottom‘ and Rihanna‘s ‘Work‘. He helped direct the ‘Life Is Good‘ collaboration by Future with Drake as well where Future gives him a shoutout as well.
[Verse 1: Drake & Playboi Carti]
Drake in the first verse of ‘Pain 1993’ talks about the G-Wagon automobile that he currently owns. “Sicko” or “6icko”, where 6 is the code reference to the hometown of the rapper ‘Toronto’. Sicko could also be a reference to ‘SICKO MODE‘ with Travis Scott. As the height of success kept surging for Drake, he felt as though he doesn’t need any friends. However, along the way, he is keeping old friends while making new friends at the same time.
Drake has expressed at several moments previously that he is not reluctant to pick up a fight with anyone whether they are popular celebrities or his co-workers. As mentioned in the lyrics for ‘Pain 1993’, Drake willingly doesn’t like beef and drama. However, if he feels as though his legacy for hip-hop is being questioned, he will fight back to protect what belongs to him. It sounds like a fair deal to me.
[Verse 2: Playboi Carti]
This is the part where everyone lost it. Playboi Carti in his verse for ‘Pain 1993’ Lyrics mentions the brands that he is affiliated with or the ones that he likes. He gives a shoutout to the brands such as Raf Simons, Goyard, Bentley, Christian Dior, and Lamborghini. On top of that, he shows off with his impulsive expenditure of over $100,000 with the reasoning of “I felt like spending”. Good for you, but your verse is trash.
Conclusion: Pain 1993 Meaning
Overall, the song follows the path of Drake. However, when you listen to the first 60 seconds of the track, you already know the rest of the song. It’s a lazy production with weak verses by both Drake and Playboi Carti. This could have been better and this could have stood on the hype it was presented with.
