Drake is a week removed from the release of his latest album Scorpion and now he spits a rare freestyle for Link Up TV’s Behind Barz.
Drizzy starts things off by shouting out Rashid, Giggs, and others before delivering some vicious raps about his 2017 Coachella performance, secrets he holds about Kanye West and Pusha T, being the King of Toronto, blowing up off his VIEWS album, not caring about award shows, Scorpion, avoiding relationships with women, and more.
In related news, Drake’s fifth studio album Scorpion has already broken a 24-hour streaming record and now takes the title for best first week ever by reaching over 1 billion streams globally. Aubrey is also the first artist to be affected by the new global charting criteria, which gives more weight to paid subscription services than free ones. Scorpion has been able to accumulate over 750 million plays in the US alone shattering the previous benchmark held by Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys.
Watch Drake get some things off his chest below and expect the final numbers for his LP to arrive tomorrow. Scorpion is available on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital platforms now. I’ve also included a conversation Drake had about Kanye during one of his recording sessions.
