If the world is trying to drain you of energy, then turn to inspirational Drizzy lyrics and some Sprite. The soda brand announced Thursday that lyrics from Drake, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, and Rakim will pop up on their pop cans this summer as the inaugural “Obey Your Verse” series. Take a look:

The rappers were selected “based on their reputation for being true to themselves through their music and advancing the culture,” according to the press release. It sure helped that Drake has a line about attempting to leave his mark on culture.

“Legacy means everything to me,” Nas said in a statement. The New York MC has five of the 16 excerpts. “When I wrote these lyrics, I never imagined my fans would someday have the opportunity to enjoy a can of Sprite and experience my art in a totally original way.”
