Did Drake Just Reignite the Pusha-T Beef on His "Behind Barz" Freestyle?
Published Jul 09, 2018Drake was a busy boy this weekend, stepping up to fill DJ Khaled's headlining slot at Wireless Festival, but he also returned with some fresh material just one week after dropping Scorpion.
While in London, Drizzy made time to appear on Link Up TV, delivering a freestyle that hears him shouting out his day ones like Oliver El-Khatib and Chubbs.
It also hears him possibly reigniting his beef with Pusha-T, though, suggesting that this year's "surgical summer" hasn't come to an end just yet.
The line "Take all that shit up with P and his bro" seems to allude to Pusha and Kanye West, and is followed by a verse that takes new shots at the pair.
I wish you the best, let me know how it goes
Wanna be free and I wanna let go
We came around and you showed us the most
I know so much shit that I cannot expose
I keep it inside and I laugh on my own
Got all the tea and I'm hottin' it up
I need a shade mansion, a room's not enough
You're droppin' some shit but that shit was a bust
They got no direction, they're followin' us
I come from a city that they never touch
Your man is a goofy and he could get brushed
I can't name a rapper or girl that I trust
I dream about turnin' these yutes into dust
Drake makes allusions to the lyrics on "Ghost Town" from West's Ye LP, and makes reference to the fact that he visited Wyoming in the early stages of the album — suggesting that earlier renditions of the record were laughable. He also calls the recent string of G.O.O.D. Music releases directionless and "a bust," before threatening to turn Pusha and West "into dust."
Of course, Pusha infamously outed Drake as a dad on "The Story of Adidon," which Drake has since addressed on multiple Scorpion songs. It has since been reported that he recorded the track "March 14" (about his son) prior to Pusha's diss track.
West previously declared the beef between Pusha-T and Drake "dead," but we'll have to wait and see if Drizzy's latest freestyle provokes a response.
