I got the Drake bumping, tweeting back to back

photo copywrite to iTunes / Drake / not me

I work in social media. I rewrote the lyrics to Drake’s Back to Back to what he might have written if he worked at an agency and the song was about social media… and his name was Craig not Drake.

If you aren’t familiar with the song/beat:

I’m not sure if this was a waste of 22 minutes of my lunch break or not, but here it is. Read in the cadence and rhythm of the song.


[Intro]

Oh man — Instagram, Instagram — post it up

[Verse]

Yeah, I learned the game from @garyvee so you can never check me

Back to back for the peoples that don’t have iMessage (wut?)

Back to back like I’m on the home page of Medium

Back to back like I’m featured tech on Uncrate.com

WHOA, very engaging and very uptempo

When I look back I might be mad that I wrote this rendition

Yeah, but it was sitting light upon my conscience

Yeah, and damn, it left me just one option…


I wanna see my DMs go insane

You gon’ make me step up my Tinder game

And you gon’ make me buy bottles, White Girl Rose

And you gon’ make me go out on too many dates


Tweeted this days ago, didn’t see it? How?

I dropped a storm homie, go read it now

I’m not sure what it was that really made y’all share

But I guess this is what I gotta do to make y’all care

I mean WHOA, can fake the ‘Gram man, they know what’s up

Too much filter, gotta get your edit it up

This for y’all that think that I don’t Beme enough

They just mad cause I got on Mail Time first


You love her then you gotta give your passcode to her

Is that a retweet or a subtweet?

I know that you gotta be a fav for her

But this ain’t what she meant when she told you to tweet your thoughts more

Yeah, Tinder fingers turn to tender fingers

You gettin’ bodied by a copy writer

I am the type of writer that will type to writers

And shout out to all my boss women RUNNING START-UPS

Make sure you hit ‘em with a non-compete!

So they don’t up and steal your (intellectual) property

I ‘Gram’d another one I ‘Gram’d another one

You still ain’t commented on my other one?


I got the Drake bumping, tweeting back to back

Yeah, tweeting back to back

I got the Drake bumping, tweeting back to back

Yeah, tweeting back to back


I don’t wanna read about this BuzzFeed again

Not even when shows that it got liked by a friend,

Not even when you sayin’ “Craig, just click it again,”

I been blocking all that noise don’t even send me that shit

OH! You need better action?

I didn’t wanna tell ‘em, but their feeds are flaccid

The point I’m trying to make is that I never read ‘em

Seen what you’d do for likes and you’d do for mentions


Please, check ‘em for a bot or some fake fans

Please, please don’t fall for these chump brands

Please, think before you post on the ‘Gram man

Please, what will boost your sales and your value

PLEASE, somebody add me! (@craigfrancis_)

I’m talking tweet me and send me snappys (craig_francis87)

I got the handles on my name and that’s my shit

Soon as I write this piece and post it they ‘gon

They gon’ ask if they can post this shit back to back

Yeah, post it back to back

They ‘gon ask if they can post this shit back to back

I took lunch to write this, now it’s back to work, Ohhhhhhhh.
