In a surprise turn of events, Drake dropped a mixtape last night. This mixtape has already been downloaded millions of times (including by me). Given what we've seen from Twitter and message boards, it's likely that recruits are going to be tweeting lyrics off of this mixtape which you will likely misinterpret as their genuine thoughts leading you to freak about whether they're still considering your school. Case in point:
I ain't felt the pressure in a little while... It's gon' take some getting used to...

That's a Drake lyric from the track "Used to" that Kyler tweeted out in the middle of his decision making process between UT and A&M. Did it have anything to do with his decision? Who knows. But we all freaked out about it. Maybe if we'd known it was a lyric we wouldn't have freaked out.
That's why I'm here to help. Here are pertinent lyrics from Drake's new mixtape that you might see that 5 star tweeting out after a junior day.
Right or wrong, I'ma write my wrongs
You don't know where you're gonna go
I got this shit mapped out strong
Those lyrics don't meant that the player committed early. Nor do they mean that the player is going to play for Charlie Strong. It's just Drake.
I got enemies, I got a lotta enemies
Got a lotta people tryna drain me of this energy
The recruit in question is not talking about all of the folks "hating" on his choice of school. This does not mean that you should engage in a twitter debate with a rival fan while including the recruit in the mentions.
10 Bands, 50 bands 100 bands, f*** it man
Let's not even discuss it man O-M-G
Your rival school is not paying players. It's a rap lyric.
I been in the crib with the phones off
I been at the house taking no calls
He's not waffling on his decision. Also coaches aren't trying to inundate him with phone calls. Well actually they probably are, but this lyric doesn't have anything to do with that.
Envelopes coming in the mail, let her open em'
Hopin' for a check again, ain't no tellin'
Nope. Still not about football. Still not about street agents or paying players or anything like that. Still just Drake.
The new s*** on steroids, I would never pass a physical
I got it rollin' in all kinda ways, lump sum and residual, yeah
I mean we hear about the money you be gettin' but we never get a visual
The player is not doing steroids. Players aren't getting paid under the table. Your blog is not going to end up doing some sort of 20/20 expose bringing down your rival school. You will not be hailed as a hero.
My n**** said the first meal gonna change you
I am not a man, I can't do this on my own
Now & Forever
Man, I'm leaving I'm leaving, you know I got my reasonsYeah I'm leaving yeah I'm leaving yeah I'm leaving I'm gone
I gotta get on the road I gotta get on the roadNot looking back no more
These days, I'm letting God handle all things above meThe things I can't change are the reasons you love meListen you can hear them calling my nameI'm all over the place, I can't sit in one placeI'm not ashamed at allAnd assistants always convinced that there's always someone better
