Freddie Gibbs hopped on the beat of Drake‘s Certified Lover Boy opener “Champagne Poetry” for the reimagined cut “Vice Lord Poetry.”

The three-and-a-half-minute cut seemingly hears the rapper taking shots at Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem with the lines “The Earth ain’t big enough for both of us, you gotta get done / They sayin’ they smoking top fives / But you ain’t burned up the one / Uh, f*ck n*****s talkin’ ’bout? / Like every time I hit the booth / I don’t leave that bitch with a body count.” Gibbs appears to be answering Lamar’s line on the track “family ties” where he raps, “The Elohim, the rebirth / Before you get to the Father, you gotta holla at me first, bitch / Smokin’ on top fives / Motherf*ck that album, f*ck that single / Burn that hard drive / Burn that shit.”

Gibbs is prepping to release his upcoming album SSS soon, telling HYPEBEAST, “Triple S, album of the f*cking year, man. That’s all I gotta say.” He added, “Me and Lambo, man, we really stuck it out. And now I can stand at the mountaintop of this. I feel like I’ve been so underrated and overlooked and underappreciated in the rap game. I feel like I’m just now starting to get my flowers, and I’m gonna take them motherf*ckers. If they wasn’t gonna give them to me, I was gonna take that sh*t.”
