Toronto rappers Smiley and Drake have linked up for “Over the Top.”
On the track, the two rappers exchange verses flexing their lavish lifestyles with references to designer brands, cars and women.
“The level is just too advanced / The bezel is Tiffany stamped / No grip on my hand / I know that I came with a slide from left to right but now I don’t wanna dance,” Drizzy spits over a menacing trap beat.
In an interview with Complex Canada, Smiley recalled how he and Drake first connected. “A long time ago, it was 2014 or something like that. He heard those songs and I guess he paid close attention,” the rapper recounted.
“And then when I took a break and I came back, I dropped this one song called ‘Hit’ … That was the first time I’d ever seen that Drake knew who I was or anything; one of his boys posted my song, and he commented under it and said, ‘Smiley = G.O.A.T.’ And then that’s when I was like, ‘Oh fuck, this guy knows who I am and shit.’ So then, probably a couple of days later, he followed me on Insta.”
Drizzy recently contributed a guest verse to Brent Faiyaz’s “Wasting Time,” and rapped on “Solid” from Slime Language 2, a label compilation by Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life Records. The wait continues for his new album, Certified Lover Boy, which has been delayed for a few months now.
