Drake is really not playing around, as he went to his usual bag of tricks and released his "Back to Back" freestyle in the middle of the night on the OVO Soundcloud. Much like on "Charged Up," Drake is sending out clear messages on this freestyle, and with the Meek Mill situation on his mind, it doesn't appear that Drizzy is playing any games at the moment. On the song, Drake raps about that when he looks back on the situation, he might be mad that he gave it so much attention, but they didn't give him any options.
Drizzy also straight up addresses the ghostwriting rumors on the track, with the line, "This for y'all that think I don't write enough, they just mad cus I got the Midas touch." As for the cover art, Drake hit it on a few levels with the picture of Joe Carter after the Blue Jays won their second straight World Series. Who did they beat in the picture? The Philadelphia Phillies.
Meek, who performed in Toronto last night, has yet to respond to Drake with a song, but that might be inevitable at this point with Drake keeping the pressure on. On the track, Drake mentions sending bottles of champagne to Charlamagne Tha God, and whether this is a troll from the Power 105 personality or not, Charlamagne is showing off some bottles on his IG.
On a related note, Toronto politician Norm Kelly, who beefed with Meek on Twitter, officially approves of "Back to Back."
