Drake has released a new track and he could be heard in the song taking shades at both Kanye West and Pusha T.
The diss track was in response to lyrics on Pusha T’s new album.
“I could never have a Virgil in my circle and hold him back ’cause he makes me nervous”, Drake says on Duppy Freestyle, referencing Kanye’s long-time creative director Virgil Abloh, who’s now head of menswear for Louis Vuitton.
Drake also claims he’s done things for Kanye “I thought he never would need”.
The lyrical beef between Pusha T and Drake goes back a few years, and appears to stem from a disagreement between King Push and Drake’s one-time mentor Lil Wayne.
Pusha T chose to reignite the row on his new album Daytona, which was produced by and features G.O.O.D. Music label head Kanye West.
On its final track, Pusha accuses Drake of not writing his own lyrics: “The lyric pennin’ equal the Trumps winnin’/The bigger question is how the Russians did it/It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin”.
The Virginia rapper appears to be suggesting that like an allegation against Donald Trump – that he had outsider help winning the presidency – Drake has help writing his lyrics.
It’s a theory that was first alleged by Meek Mill back in 2015, and one Drizzy appears to confirm (in part) on Duppy Freestyle.
It took less than 24 hours for Drake to clap back – and fans were here for the quick turnaround.
His response came with a number of cutting lyrics – but fans appreciated the track before he’d even started rapping.
