With his latest “Meltdown” duet with Travis Scott, Drake didn’t hold back. Drizzy provided a vicious guest verse on the Utopia single, despite the fact that the 36-year-old hasn’t publicly addressed Pusha T since 2022’s “Churchill Downs” with Jack Harlow. The rapper uses a track by Coleman, BNYX, Boi-1da, Vinylz, and Tay Keith that features both Pusha T and Pharrell Williams, a longstanding collaborator.
“I melt down the chains that I bought from yo boss/ Give a fuck about all of that heritage s***/ Since V not around, the members done hung up the Louis/ They not even wearing that s***,” he raps, alluding to Williams’ Joopiter auction. Drake was later seen flaunting Williams’ custom chains in the “Jumbotron Shit Poppin” music video.
The “V” image also pays homage to the late designer Virgil Abloh, who Williams succeeds as the next creative director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear division. Drake honored Abloh with a gigantic statue that resembled the late fashion pioneer during the Chicago opener of the It’s All A Blur Tour.
The 6 God continues, “You lucky that ‘Vogue’ was suing/ ‘Cause I would’ve been with the Wassas in Paris and s***.” in his “Meltdown” stanza.
The verse also makes reference to Drizzy and Her Loss colleague 21 Savage being sued by Condé Nast over their phony Vogue issues. It is directed at Williams and Pyrex P, who were both in Paris for Williams’ debut LV runway show.
“Meltdown” marks the first time that Drizzy has gone after Williams, but the rapper has traded words with Pusha T since 2018, after the Virgina rapper’s “Infrared” caused Drake to respond with “Duppy Freestyle.” Pusha T hit back with the vicious “The Story of Adidon,” revealing Drake’s son, Adonis.
