Drake just dropped a new freestyle remixing The Weeknd’s song “Tell Your Friends” from his album “Beauty Behind the Masses.” The Canadian rapper released the short track Saturday night on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.
While Drake doesn’t mention his feud with Meek Mill, a new report suggests the song could be further igniting Apple’s tiff with Tidal. A few weeks ago, Tidal blocked a livestream of Drake’s performance at Lil Wayne’s WeezyAna Fest in New Orleans. Tidal, which is Jay Z’s music streaming service, tweeted at the time that it was forced to block the rapper’s performance because Apple threatened them with a lawsuit. Drake recently signed a deal for Apple Music, one of Tidal’s competitors.
Drake’s manager, however, released a statement saying Tidal was lying and wanted to turn the situation into a “publicity stunt.” The manager further said he was the one who decided Drake’s WeezyAna performance wouldn’t be shown on Tidal. It seemed like things had died down between the two companies, but now BET reports that Drake choosing to release his freestyle on Beats 1 at the same time Mill was performing at Made In America festival, which was livestreamed on Tidal, was a slight jab at the company.
As previously reported, Mill and Drake have been feuding for months now. Their beef started in July when the “All Eyes On You” rapper accused Drake of using a ghostwriter. The two exchanged words by releasing their own diss tracks, and Billboard reported Drake was using the beef as “a lot of fuel” for his upcoming album “Views From The 6.”
Twitter users also believe Drake’s feud with Pusha-T might have been reignited after Pusha appeared on a Hit-Boy song with Quentin Miller, Drake’s rumored ghostwriter.
