As Drake’s Scorpion continues to do huge streaming numbers, the Toronto rapper is running victory laps in the form of 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 off of hitting a billion streams of 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 off 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.
