Drakeo The Ruler‘s ongoing legal issues with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office rage on. The rapper has already been found not guilty of murder and attempted murder, but even with his acquittal, he still sits behind bars with additional conspiracy charges currently being battled in court. After the release of his Free Drakeo project, comprised mostly of loosies, singles and lost cuts from 2016-2018, more rappers continue to lend their verses in honor to raise awareness of the #FREEDRAKEO movement.
Free Drakeo is the first project to release from the Los Angeles rapper since his 2017 effort Cold Devil. Danny Brown recently contributed an extra verse to Drakeo’s “Out the Slums” Remix. Now Earl Sweatshirt returns to open up the “Ion Rap Beef” Remix which originally featured a guest spot from the currently incarcerated 03 Greedo.
Earl opens up his verse to say, “F*ck the D.A.,” then brings his best to the track with overt disses to critics who hide behind computers, shouts out friend and filmmaker Mikey Alfred and delivers a slurred, lazy flow over the bouncy JoogFTR produced beat. “F*ck the D.A., free the Ruler/ Sex cancelled, I went right for that medulla/ Talkin’ spicy hella easy, n*ggas hide behind computers/ Talkin’ ’bout some he gon’ fight me, it’s unlikely, he a tulip,” Earl raps.
Stream “Ion Rap Beef” Remix below and stay tuned for more from Drakeo’s camp throughout the year. In more music news, Conway the Machine and The Alchemist released Lulu earlier today, their 7-track EP released through a new Patta collaboration.
