Drake is nothing if not responsive. Mere hours after Pusha T fired shots at the Toronto native on his latest album Daytona, Drake dropped “Duppy Freestyle”, a 3-minute long diss track aimed at the 41-year old and his collaborator, Kanye West. It was a clear response, an act of lyrical war, and should be treated as such.
It stemmed from Pusha T’s last track of Daytona, “Infrared”, on which he spits, ” Your hooks did it / The lyrics pennin’ equals to Trump’s winnin’ / The bigger question is how the Russians did it / It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin.” He zoned in on the allegations of Drake using Quentin Miller as a ghostwriter. This subliminal shot came from Drake taking shots at Pusha T on a previous track in 2017, “Two Birds, One Stone.”
In doing this, he awakened Drizzy from “album mode,” causing him to address him head on with a concentrated, steady flow of shots at both Pusha T and Kanye. Once Drake said, “The nerve / The audacity,” and then SIGHED on the track, it was more than apparent that Drake was going to hit with body shots. He spent three minutes saying that he himself ghostwrote for Kanye, that Pusha T wasn’t even good at selling drugs, and that Pusha T was washed up and old. The bars speak for themselves. I’m personally hoping that Pusha T will immediately respond.
