We would tell you that the video you're about to watch is very NSFW. But, being both Halloween and Friday, if you're actually at work right now, you really need to prioritize. For everyone else, Buzzfeed has created a series of vignettes that illustrate how awkward things would be if we casually dropped rapped lyrics IRL.
The wordplay of hip-hop luminaries like Nicki Minaj, A$Ap Rocky, and Lil Wayne are all used here as examples of what not to say in both personal and professional situations. Curiously missing from the PSA, however, is Drake. That poses a problem. Can we quote Drake IRL or can't we? Let's have a look at a couple of his choice lyrics.
This one, from the song "Over" seems okay: "Man they treat me like a legend, am I really this cold?/ I’m really too young to be feeling this old.”
How about this, from "In the Morning:" “I mean that thing is poking/ I mean you kinda like that girl that’s in the U.S. Open/ I mean I got this hidden agenda that you provoking/ I got bath water that you could soak in.” Good hygiene is important, right?
