After teaming up with DJ Khaled on two new tracks, Drake has returned to release a song with British rapper Headie One. In the drill anthem, titled “Only You Freestyle,” fans believe Drizzy is sending subliminal shots at Pusha-T and Kanye West.
On Monday, Drake once again busted out his UK accent and drill flow alongside Headie One. “I had to go hard, especially on a track with one of the best drill artists in the world,” Drake said in a press release. “Scratch that—the best drill artist in the world.”
Yet while Drake’s British flow would usually become instant meme-fodder, fans have been distracted by certain bars that may be aimed directly at Push and his “big homie” Kanye.
“Sh-t you man been droppin’ lately / Don’t make me have to fly my iTunes / So much people buy into my hype / Don’t make me have to buy my hype too / Dealt with the big homie already / Don’t make me have to side-by-side you / Nuff times he tried to hide behind you,” Drake raps.
The disses are likely in response to an unreleased version of Pop Smoke’s “Paranoia” in which Pusha allegedly fired shots at Drake.
It seems the Drake and Pusha cold war might be heating up again.
This isn’t Drake’s first foray into drill. The Champagne Papi has long since been a fan of the UK drill scene, having implemented similar sounds on numerous tracks like “War” and “Demons,” the latter of which explores Brooklyn drill.
