Did Drake just drop a diss track about Kanye West and Pusha T?

That’s what fans think after listening to the Canadian rapper’s lyrics on the recently released “Only You Freestyle” he collaborated with Headie One

The lyrics read: “[Stuff] you man been dropping lately, don’t make me have to fly my iTunes/So much people buy into my hype, don’t make me have to buy my hype too/Dealt with the big homie already, don’t make me have to side-by-side you/Nuff times he tried to hide behind you/Amnesia but when I remind you/Word to the M-O-B I’m tied to/I’m giving up when I decide to, gee.”

According to Genius, the lyrics could be taken as retaliation for verse Pusha did on an unreleased verse of Pop Smoke’s song “Paranoia.” As far as where Kanye fits in, he’s seemingly the “big homie” Drake references. 

To further the discussion, some fans have even linked Kanye’s recent Twitter rant as proof of that Drake’s verse was a diss. 

In one of the since-deleted tweets, Kanye simply wrote, “Drake” alongside the thinking emoji, while a following tweet read, “Come and get me… this is exodus like Pusha said.”

If the lyrics were taking aim at Kanye and Pusha T this would be round two for the artists. Their first feud seemed to fizzle out in the summer of 2018.
