Drake’s fondness for returning to fans didn’t end with his “” God’s Strategy” “video. Simply more than a week after gifting listeners with a massive 25- track album Scorpion, Drake launched a brand-new freestyle through U.K. rap channel Link TELEVISION’s “” Behind Barz” “on Saturday, July 7. And his latest lyrics reveal that Drizzy isn’t really simply spitting bars for the sake of some Scorpion postscript ear sweet; he’s providing a message.
Drake rapped in the video:
“” I got method too huge off Views
Back to the fundamentals, I will not lose …
I do not offer a f ** k about denims or crap
Or going to Milan or going to the Met
I simply wan na make these tunes for the set …” “
Obviously he’s referencing his 2016 task Views– which went quadruple Platinum, made the rap artist numerous Grammy elections, consisting of Album of the Year, and generated bangers like “” Hotline Bling,” “”” One Dance,” “and “” Too Good” “– in the rhyme that he teased on his main Instagram page. (“” BEGIN ENGLAND!!!!!!!! Link Television Behind Barz out NOW!!!” “Drake captioned the post.)
Now, the “” Great for Exactly what” “rap artist appears to be stating he’s not simply aiming to get a bag, he remains in the video game for individuals. The act of dropping a freestyle– removed of image, estimation, and production techniques– reveals a go back to the fundamentals in and of itself. However it might likewise act as a description of Drake’s present state of mind in his profession. As numerous music critics have actually kept in mind, Scorpion, which he launched on June 29, went back to the attempted and real formula that offered the rap artist cred different from industrial success. (Side note: Drake’s brand-new album broke the United States one-week streaming record for an album– in simply 3 days, inning accordance with Signboard)

Even the previously mentioned “” God’s Strategy” “video itself reveals a more carefree technique to his music profession. Rather of putting out a big-budget clip, Drake shared the wealth, supposedly contributing the video’s $1 million record label allocation to fans and recording the offering on electronic camera. Amongst his contributions: $25,000 to Miami Secondary School, a $50,000 scholarship look for a University of Miami trainee, 50,000 to a ladies’s shelter, and obviously arbitrarily getting grocery buyers’ grocery store tabs.
As kept in mind by Complex, Drake’s brand-new freestyle might likewise try Kanye West, to name a few. Indicating the line, ” They wan na link when they got no chunes/They too concerned about offering out shoes,” the publication competes it’s possible he was shading the Yeezy creator. The freestyle’s ” I understand a lot sh * t that I can not expose, I keep it inside and I laugh on my own””(*** )line” might likewise raise an eyebrow,” “ Complex composed.(**** )
Obviously fans lost no time at all in examining Drake’s Scorpion lyrics and developing theories about their significances. Aside from thinking which Scorpion lyrics have to do with Rihanna (“” Summer Season Games,” “”” Jaded,” “”” Skill,” are the leading 3 guesses, FYI) or if Drake hinted he dated Bella Hadid on “” Skill,” “fans were prepared for the beef. Most especially, numerous questioned how Drake would react to his fight with Pusha-T on the brand-new task after he cautioned his fellow rap artist “do not press me when I remain in album mode,” on his “” Duppy Freestyle” “Soundcloud diss track.
On Pusha-T’s own diss track, “The Story of Adidon,” he implicated Drake of concealing the presence of a secret boy. Well, as we now all understand, Drake confessed to fathering a kid on Scorpion‘s “” Emotionless,” “rapping” I wasn’t concealing my kid from the world, I was concealing the world from my kid.”
And while others presumed Drake’s tune “March 14” appeared like a protective “The Story of Adidon” reaction, with a source near Drake informing Wanderer that” March 14″ was taped “method, method prior to” “” The Story of Adidon,”” the publication hypothesized that a leakage (perhaps from Kanye) is how Pusha-T got the paternity information to start with. So that would describe if he was really calling out Kanye.
While fans might invest days dissecting Drake’s lyrics, they’ll certainly have no problems having his brand-new freestyle to contribute to their playlist of summer season jams.
