"Started from the Bottom" by Drake

I don't get Drake's definition of "bottom". According to this video, he was privileged enough to participate in organized community sports, and he had a job. At Shoppers. In real life, he grew up in the "ghetto part" of ritzy Forest Hill - ie not Jane & Finch or Rexdale, and had a job as an actor on Degrassi.  I just wish Drake would get real and admit he started from the middle.
