i dont think a lot of people even caught the deepness of that song either but i hope they did. the hook has you thinkin one way until the "i suppose" part comes it which defines the whole song.

lol...i love yall i really do! When i first heard Successful way back when, I was like this is my favorite song of all time, i will be saying the same thing 10 yrs from now b/c the song speaks for it self. I always thought this was your best song!

i wrote a blog on this a little while back....

“i want the money/ money and the cars/ cars and the clothes/ the hoes,/ i suppose,
i just wanna be. i just wanna be successful”

with that melodic chorus drake brings to light an ideal that captures the crux of most twenty-one year old black men’s dreams and infatuations. our neighborhoods are covered with men standing on corners, hustlin, in an attempt to get the money, the car, and with those the hoes usually come. our playgrounds are filled with young mothers cheering on their sons, praying they are the one/million that will be successful granting them the money for change. inside our homes floors and trash bins are littered with crumbled pieces of paper with; verses making proclamations of the possessions that will gained if someone were to actually give a chance by way of listening ear.

i personally like how drake [trey] breaks up what is being said: i want the money, money and cars, cars and the clothes, the hoes….i suppose…i just wanna be successful. the “i suppose” being placed in a position where it can imply two different meanings: one being i suppose i just want to be successful, or supposing it is the hoes [and the things that usually get them] that make one successful. the placement brings a complexity into question of exactly what being successful means, a complexity that should be there because success is measured differently within all of us, due to the complexity of human emotions.
