Just about a day or so after King Push admitted to dissing Drizzy on his new Daytona album, the Toronto rapper has unleashed his “Duppy Freestyle,” a scathing rhyme session with bars seemingly directed at the Clipse rapper. Boi-1da and Jahaan Sweet produced the track.
Taking a precise approach to dissing an unnamed figure, Drizzy delivers more than a few ruthless bars about a rapper who’s made a career out of drug-related rhymes. He doesn’t say Pusha’s name, but he throws in some references that make his goal pretty clear.
“Your brother said it was your cousin and him then you/So you don’t rap what you did, you just rap what you knew/Don’t be ashamed, there’s plenty niggas that do what you do/It’s no malice in your heart, you an approachable dude,” he spits. In case you didn’t know, Malice is Pusha’s brother.
A bit later on in the song, Drizzy seemingly references his microphone he had Pusha autograph years and years ago. Then, he addresses the notion that he used Quentin Miller as a ghostwriter, which is an accusation Pusha makes on his Daytona track, “Infrared.”
Drizzy also appears to throw a few Kanye West shots into the mix, suggesting that ‘Ye wasn’t doing what he could do to support his one-time protege, Virgil Abloh. Abloh used to be Kanye’s creative director before becoming Louis Vuitton’s artistic director this past March.
In the early going, fans have been all about this new Drizzy track, and King Push wasted no time responding. Using his Twitter account to address the 6ix God’s new song, Pusha retweeted Drizzy’s tweet announcing the song and wrote, “Send the invoice for the extra 20.” In his “Duppy Freestyle,” Drizzy raps, “Tell ‘Ye we got a invoice coming to you/Considering that we just sold another 20 for you.” The line could be seen as Drake implying that his dissing Pusha will lead to more record sales for the Virginia rhymer.
