“Never Recover” by Lil Baby, Gunna and Drake

“Never Recover” is a song recorded and performed by rappers Lil Baby, Gunna and Drake. The lyrics of the song see the rappers rapping too proudly about a number of things, most notably their accomplishments, wealth and importance.

In addition to praising themselves and bragging, the rappers also take digs at their haters. For example, in Drake’s verse, he raps about his haters unsuccessfully attempts to stop him from rising. He wraps up the verse by telling them that they “fell off” and will “never recover”.

“You ni**as fell off and you’ll never recover”
