This Memphis-inspired cut finds Drake teaming up with 21 Savage to play out their gangsta fantasies. They exchange six verses during which they spit on a range of topics, from gangs to weapons to sex. Drake concludes proceedings with some braggadocio bars about how his son will inherit the rewards he's garnered from his hard work.
"Knife Talk" marks the fourth collaboration between 21 Savage and Drake, following Drake's 2016 single "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/drake/sneakin">Sneakin</a>," the unreleased leaked track "Issa," and "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/21-savage-and-metro-boomin/mr-right-now">Mr. Right Now</a>" from 21 Savage and Metro Boomin's joint album, <b>Savage Mode II</b>.
The song starts off with an intro from Project Pat sampled from his verse on Juicy J's 2017 cut "Feed the Streets." Pat is the older brother of Juicy, who cut his teeth in the Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia.
