The ultimate troll.
After Pusha T released ‘Infrared’, a track in which he mocks Drake’s alleged use of a ghost writer (with lyrics like: ‘It was written like Nas/ But it came from Quentin‘), Drake responded with a new freestyle he’s dubbing ‘Duppy Freestyle’.
“Don’t push me when I’m in album mode, you’re not even top five as far as your label talent goes,” the Canadian raps on the track, before going on to diss label boss Kanye West.
“Tell ’Ye we got an invoice comin’ to you/ Considering we just sold another 20 for you.”
Drake followed through and posted a pic on Instagram of the invoice sent to Kanye’s label, G.O.O.D Music and Def Jam, to the sum of $1000,000 (£75,171) for professional services of ‘Promotional assistance and career reviving’.
The invoice is addressed to Def Jam’s executive vice president/head of A&R, Steven Victor.
Drake uploaded the image with the caption: “You’re welcome.”
Drake also disses Kanye West in the track, rapping: “What do you really think of the nigga that’s making your beats?/ I’ve done things for him I thought he never would need/ Father had to stretch his hands out and get it from me/ I pop style for 30 hours, then let him repeat.”

Meanwhile, Pusha T’s artwork for new album ‘Daytona’ caused controversy after a photo of Whitney Houston’s drug-ridden bathroom was used for its cover art.
Kanye was allegedly dissatisfied with th original album cover, so paid $85,000 for the rights to use the controversial image on the album.
It’s thought the photo was taken at the height of Houston’s issues with addiction in 2006.
