Drake Done Did It: 15 Essential “Started From the Bottom” GIFs [PHOTOS]


If Justin Timberlake is the current king of flourish on the Pop/R&B side, then Drake has to be his Hip-Hop counterpart. No rapper has kicked off 2013 better than the YMCMB superstar, who set the Internets ablaze with visuals for his new track, “Started From the Bottom,” during Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

Drizzy, who’s no stranger to ridicule, channelled all of the hate and released one of the most stuntastic videos of recent memory. Whether he’s walking alongside a baby powder white Bentley in the snow or Diddy-bopping in front of his billboard overlooking his native Toronto, the “Headlines” rapper’s video makes for an array of GIF worthy moments.

Since Drake landed a Grammy for Best Rap Album with Take Care, only to announce the title of his forthcoming project, Nothing Was The Same, soon after, we’ll say that any stunting to come is warranted. And while the majority of us can only dream of living that opulently, it’s certainly fun to watch.

Check below to see our 15 most essential “Started From the Bottom” GIFs.

    Don’t talk about what u don’t know about. If you may get a start, be humble and happy u got one. Just cause he didn’t sell cr@ck to someone’s mama. I’m suppose to hate on that fact.? Cause he wasn’t completely street with his manner of music and marketing himself. Annnd so what?? Jealous much?

  • “Started from the bottom of the rich part of Toronto when my mommy put me on TV and I used my uncle’s (who played in pedophile Jerry Lee Lewis’ band) music connections to get a record deal …” It may not mean nothing to ya’ll, but understand nothing was done for me. Bullshit. More power to all the REAL ARTISTS who REALLY CAME FROM NOTHING out there getting NO SHINE. Drake is a silver spoon chump. I’ll always hate on Drake. Always. COUNT ON IT.

    How you recap the video without the drop top scene. “Drop top in the winter that’s what Winners do”. I know Jay said it but Drake killed em
