It seems like everything Drake does turns into a meme, and the constant internet attention and mockery has gotten to the Toronto rapper.

“If I’m being real, it hurts. It seems like it keeps happening,” Drake said during his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live.

As a result, Drake hit back against meme culture with song. Called “More Than a Meme,” the track takes a slow-jam walk through Drake’s life online — and includes memes about Drake’s face being on E.T. and the rapper sitting on top of the Seinfeld diner.

“I just want to scream, that I’m more than a meme,” Drake sings in the chorus.

And as with any good Drake single, the track also included a verse by Rihanna… performed by Drake himself wearing a wig. (“I swear we only friends, friends, friends,” Drake as Rihanna sang in the style of “Work.”)

Watch Drake’s SNL monologue below — before it turns into another meme.
