As Drake’s Scorpion continues to do huge streaming numbers, the Toronto rapper is running victory laps in the form freestyles. After sharing a new verse in the Link Up TV Behind Barz series, Drake has come through with another UK-based freestyle for Charlie Sloth’s BBC Radio 1Xtra series Fire In The Booth. As fans have already pointed out, it’s a little shorter than your average Fire In The Booth freestyle, but it’s still a “history-defining moment” according to Sloth, who describes Drake as “the biggest rapper on the planet,” dropping sirens even more liberally than Funk Flex drops bombs.
Drake is fresh f hitting a billion streams his Scorpion album in a week, which is now his eighth consecutive No. 1 album. It is expected to return at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week, while “In My Feelings” is likely to overtake “Nice For What” at No. 1 on the Hot 100. This summer, Drake is taking f on the Aubrey & The Three Amigos tour, which will take him across North America with Atlanta’s Migos.
Last week’s Behind Barz freestyle has been speculated to be a Kanye West diss, with Drake suggesting that he has secrets he “cannot expose” about an unnamed individual.
