Following the release of his double-album Scorpion on June 29, Drake dropped a hot-hitting freestyle, called “Behind Barz”, on U.K. rap channel Link Up TV on Saturday.

The title speaks for itself, as he started the freestyle with a few shoutouts, including his label OVO Sound and London native Giggs, before going in on the track, dropping bars like he didn’t just drop a 25-song album a week ago. With fresh rhymes, Drake took a potential jab at The Weeknd during his opening line, “I like R’s and V’s and O’s, I don’t really play no tic-tac-toe,” since The Weeknd’s label are the same letters you use to play the game tic-tac-toe.

Furthermore, he speaks on knowing some damaging information that he could spill, but doesn’t because it could potentially destroy someone’s career: “I know so much sh*t that I cannot expose, I keep it inside and I laugh on my own; got all the tea and I’m hottin’ it up, I need a shade mansion, a room’s not enough.”

Drake also referenced his 2017 Coachella performance, lavish lifestyle, and lack of trust towards others.

Now remember, this new freestyle came after the Toronto rapper dropped his double-album Scorpion, which has become the first album to hit 1 billion streams globally across all streaming platforms in one week, according to Billboard.

Like he says in his new song, “Nonstop,” Drake won’t ever stop making money moves: “This is a Rollie, not a stopwatch, sh*t don’t ever stop.”
