KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Megastar and hip-hop artist Drake released his latest project “Scary Hours 2,” a three song project that is a follow up to his 2018 “Scary Hours.”
The EP features “Lemon Pepper Freestyle,” which features Miami-based rapper Rick Ross.
Toronto native Drake makes reference to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in his verse saying, “Patty Mahomes ’bout to fall short a couple hunnid.”
Speculations over what the line means have sent fans of the artist and even the 2019 NFL MVP in a frenzy trying to decipher whether it was meant disrespectfully or in reference to Mahomes’ $503 million mega-extension he signed in 2020.
Mahomes reacted via Twitter with a popular GIF of Drake saying, “Wow,” while the rapper looks at his phone and face-palms.

Drake’s top contributor and moderator, known as cw, took his shot at explaining what the multi-platinum artist meant with his reference:
Drake playfully notes here that his contract may be worth more than Mahomes, seeing as Drake is one of the most commercially successful artists in the world. However, he could also be making a nod to Mahomes’ loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV back in February. He likely lost opportunities of winning additional money because of it.cw – Top Drake Contributor
