As a Saturday afternoon present, Drake released a new freestyle on U.K. rap channel Link Up TV's "Behind Barz." The new verses come after his new album, Scorpion, became the first album to surpass 1 billion streams in a week (and after England's 2-0 defeat of Sweden at the World Cup).
Drake's performance finds him cribbing some U.K. slang and sneaking in what might be some shots. “They wanna link when they got no chunes/They too worried about selling out shoes,” he says at one point. Of course, it's possible the intended target is Kanye West and company; Scorpion also had a number of alleged subliminals lobbed at the Yeezy founder. The freestyle's “I know so much shit that I cannot expose, I keep it inside and I laugh on my own" line may also raise an eyebrow.
The "Behind Barz" performance comes a little over a week after Drake teased the appearance on his Instagram Stories. Listen to his freestyle, which runs a little under three minutes, above.
