16 Hit Songs We *Totally* Misunderstood When We First Heard Them
“Same Drugs,” Chance The Rapper
We’re sure we’re not the only ones who assumed Chance the Rapper was actually referring to drugs in his slow-burning rap ballad because the rapper decided to clear up the confusion on Twitter shortly after the song’s release. Chance tweeted, “Same Drugs isn’t about drugs ?” in May 2016, and further confirmed they’re a metaphor for “stuff” in a Reddit AMA that same year. While Chance didn’t get specific about the song’s real meaning, it’s pretty clear that “stuff” is basically just a metaphor for finding joy in different realms as you grow up and grow apart.
