UK rapper Headie One released his Drake-assisted ‘Only You Freestyle’ on Monday (July 20), along with its accompanying video. Opening up the track with his verse, Drizzy seems to take aim at both G.O.O.D. Music rappers but he keeps it light.
“Shit you man been droppin’ lately/Don’t make me have to fly my iTunes,” Drake raps. “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/I’m touchin’ road and I can’t find you.”
It would appear he’s insinuating Kanye has been hiding behind Push during their war of words with the OVO rapper. The message comes less than two weeks after Pusha’s shots at Drake on the since-changed Pop Smoke song, “Paranoia.”
Before his verse was removed following Young Thug’s issue with it (as he also appears on the song), Push’s message was heard loud and clear when he rapped, “Those empty threats only sound good on your records/If the patois is not followed by a Blocka.”
The song was set to appear on the deluxe version of Pop’s posthumous album Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, which arrived on Monday (July 20). However, it arrived sans Pusha’s verse with both Thug and Gunna remaining on the track.
Prior to “Paranoia,” the beef had been relatively quiet on wax since it reached its height in 2018 with Pusha’s “The Story Of Adidon.” However, in a December 2019 interview on the Rap Radar podcast, Drake revealed that he had no plans to ever end his issues with the Virginia native – though he did admit to losing their battle.
