Drake will no doubt be the talk of the music world for much of this weekend and beyond after dropping his fifth studio album, Scorpion. As it stands, there is a lot that has unfolded in the past couple of months that needs addressing and Drizzy drops a number of subliminal and direct jabs over the course of the record.

On the opener for Scorpion, “Survival,” Drake gets into it early by seemingly addressing the beef with Pusha-T but electing not to say names.

“All of this disorder, no addressin’/The crown is broken in pieces, but there’s more in my possession/There’s a whole lot in my possession,” Drake raps, one of a pair of times he appears to let Pusha-T knows that he was ready for him.

Later in the track, Meek Mill gets a slight shot although that beef has long since been squashed. “I’ve had real Philly n*ggas try to write my endin’,” which reads as a clear reference to Meek. Drake’s beef with Diddy gets a line too.

On “Nonstop,” Drake raps “Yeah I’m light skinned, but I’m still a dark n*gga,” which could be a jab at Pusha-T’s “Story of Adidon” and the Blackface cover photo the G.O.O.D. Music president used.

Social media critics and those addicted to stunting via those channels catch strays on “Emotionless,” and the 6 God doesn’t mince words.

“Scrollin’ through life and fishin’ for praise/Opinions from total strangers take me out of my ways/I’m tryna see who’s there on the other end of the shade/Most times it’s just somebody that’s underage/That’s probably just alone and afraid/And lashin’ out so that someone else can feel they pain,” Drake raps.

But the biggest bombshell dropped in the song is where Drake confirms he does have a son, bringing Pusha-T’s words to the forefront and explaining his choice in doing so.

“I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world/I was hidin’ the world from my kid/From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate/Breakin’ news in my life, I don’t run to the blogs/The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call,” Drake spits.

Drake gets another jab in at Pusha-T on “8 Out Of 10” by rapping, “The only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin’ to,” another “The Story of Adidon” reply. Within the same track, Drake addresses his son and the now-defunct beef saying that he’s settled in the role of the “good guy” and that he misses “makin’ ’em pay” as he can no longer do since J Prince shut it all down.

Hit the flip for more breakdowns.
