“Same Drugs” describes the relationship between Chance The Rapper and a girl from his childhood. Realising that they no longer share the same interests and experiences that they did as children, Chance reflects nostalgically on their shared youth and explores his own feelings of loss around growing up.
Throughout the song, Chano uses the story of Peter Pan—and its 1991 film adaptation Hook—as an allegory to better illustrate how they grew apart from each other. In his Reddit AMA, Chance said that “Same Drugs” had “like 20 versions and was the hardest to write.”
On February 6, 2017, Chance released the official video for “Same Drugs” on YouTube, which features extra vocals from some artists who don’t feature on the album version, namely Eryn Allen Kane, Yebba, John Legend, Francis Starlite and Macie Stewart. Furthermore, it was directed by Jake Schreier.
