Interesting facts and trivia about From Florida With Love. By Songfacts®.

Drake recorded this track in Miami, Florida, in December 2017 for his Scorpion album. He never got to use it then, but later included it on his 2020 Dark Lane Demo Tapes mixtape compilation.

On this track, Drake recounts the story of meeting Kobe Bryant for the first time. The seminal moment happened in December 2008 on Lil Wayne's tour bus after he flew Drake out to Houston to open for him on his Tha Carter III tour. The Lakers legend walked onto the bus to pick up his Carter III iPod and Wayne played his "Lollipop" track to the pair.

During the next few lines, Drake raps about a diamond chain Wayne gave him and how he lost it half a year later when he was robbed while out on a date in Toronto. And you know that lesson stuck From that day I never touched the road without a Ayy, from that day I never saw the point in talkin' tough Speaking to GQ, Drizzy recalled, "I knew it was a setup, because I had on a sweater and a jacket... but when they banged on the car window with a gun and opened the door, the first thing he said was, 'Yo, run that chain.'" The lesson Drake took from the incident was to make sure he stays clear of the "negative energy that can sometimes surround the rap world."
