Look out Weezy, there may be another heir to that cup. Listen to Drake long enough, or scroll through his Blackberry full of rhymes, and you’ll realize the Toronto rapper has dropped quite a few purple drank references. The drink, widely known as sizzurp or purple sprite, has found its place within plenty of Drizzy’s rhyme schemes. Although they often go unnoticed, these lyrical allusions leave one to wonder how much of that purple drank the Young Money soldier is really sipping. XXLMag.com has decided to take a look at this and present some of Drake’s lean-influenced verses. You be the judge, and obey your thirst. —Ralph Bristout
