About

Drake Helps Lil Yachty With the Laptop is a video and GIF caption meme format based on a scene from a music video for Future's "Life Is Good" in which rapper Drake helps rapper Lil Yachty to solve a problem with his computer. In memes, Drake usually provides some common knowledge that the target of the meme has deliberately been choosing to ignore, with some examples implementing the misinterpretation humor. Initially circulated on Instagram as a video reaction meme, the clip regained popularity in GIF captions in March 2021.

On January 12th, 2020, Instagram and Twitter account @offthaweed posted a meme based on the scene, captioning it "Me showing niggas who pay for onlyfans/premiums that you can watch p--n for free" (original post no longer available, reupload[2] shown below).
