The Toronto rapper did respond on his Scorpion song “Emotionless” to the allegation he was “hiding a child” and seemed to confirm Adidon’s existence. Outside of that though, The 6 God has been quiet about the whole thing, despite dropping a new album a week ago.
That’s changing a little bit now though as Drake stepped into the booth via British rap channel Link Up TV. Via a freestyle called “Behind Barz,” he interestingly took a shot or two at Kanye West, the producer of Pusha T’s latest LP Daytona.
“They wanna link when they got no chunes / They too worried about selling out shoes,” he raps in the freestyle. ”I don’t give a f**k about jeans or crap / Or going to Milan, or going to the Met / I just wanna make these songs for the set.”
Interestingly, “Behind Barz” was recorded on June 27, two days before Scorpion dropped.

Kanye tweeting beef over but Drake going full blitzkrieg against him on that freestyle that’s the 6 God I love to hear— java (@javamonos) July 7, 2018
Luckily for Drake, his beef with Pusha T and Kanye West isn't hurting his album sales. Scorpion opened at Number One on the Billboard album charts and has broken 1 billion streams since its release. He's become the first artist to ever cross that threshold in one week.
