It's safe to say that Drake is a household name and has influenced a generation of fans through radio hits, vulnerable raps and a penchant for Instagram captions. However, he's not alone in his obsession with social media. In fact, he's managed to spawn some viral trends of his own, including the "Know Yourself" snippet that has been making a comeback on TikTok.

Aside from being a fun and entertaining way for fans to celebrate their favorite rapper's latest album, the trend has been proving to be quite popular on the app. The most notable thing about this particular trend is that it has incorporated the "Runnin' Through The 6 With My Woes" line from the album's hit track "Know Yourself" in a big way.

The oh-so-clever line is a nod to area code 416, one of three area codes in the city of Toronto where Drake was raised. The number evokes the city's nickname of "The 6."

In a 2015 interview with Noisey, Drake's OVO Sound affiliate Devontee confirmed that this particular line is a nod to his hometown and his OVO crew. While many assume that it's a reference to his actual woes, he told the site that it was actually a more personal tribute to his team mates.

The song is a collaboration with a slew of songwriters, including Illmind, 40 and Boi-1da. Also credited as a co-writer are Majid al Maskati and Jordan Ullman from Canadian R&B duo Majid Jordan.
