Update: Drake’s “Push Ups” has arrived on DSPs. The diss track initially leaked online last weekend, with no word from the rapper on when he’d be officially releasing the cut.

With no prior warning, he added the song to Spotify and Apple Music earlier today.

Lifted from the lyrics that point to Kendrick Lamar’s shoe size, the “Push Ups” cover art is an image of a shoe size tag.

Find “Push Ups” on all major streaming services now.


Original Story: Days after J. Cole elected to remove his “7 Minute Drill” – loaded with shots at Kendrick Lamar – from streaming services, Drake‘s response to Lamar on “Like That” has seemingly leaked online. Dubbed “Push Ups (Drop and Give Me 50),” the unconfirmed track hears the rapper firing back at not only Lamar but a handful of other rappers as well as Top Dawg Entertainment at large.

The four-minute cut surfaced yesterday on social media; some suspect the track is AI-generated, with the offering yet to be officially confirmed by Drake. The rapper did post a Kill Bill image to his story yesterday, contributing to the offering’s legitimacy.

Spotify/RapCaviar billboards that read “Hip-hop is a competitive sport” have begun to pop up in New York City as well, indicating a potential DSP drop.

“I could never be nobody number one fan / Your first number one, I had to put it in your hand,” he opens in response to a Future WE DON’T TRUST YOU lyric (“You a n***a Number One fan, dog”). A few bars later he pivots to Lamar, questioning “How the f*ck you big steppin’ with a size seven men’s on?”

“Maroon 5 need a verse, you better make it witty / Then we need a verse for the Swifties / Top say drop, you better drop and give ‘em fifty,” he spits, picking up momentum.

“Pipsqueak, pipe down / You ain’t in no Big Three, SZA got you wiped down / Travis got you wiped down, Savage got you wiped down / Like your label, boy, you in the scope right now / And you gon’ feel the aftermath of what I write down / I’m at the top of the mountain, so you tight now / Just to have this talk with yo’ ass, I had to hike down / Big difference between Mike then and Mike now.”

The Boy then moves on to Metro Boomin – “Metro, shut your h*e ass up and make some drums, n***a” – as well as The Weeknd: “Cash blowin’ Abel bread, out here trickin’ (Out here trickin’) / Sh*t we do for b*tches he doin’ for n***as.”

He closes out with some more thoughts on Cole’s recent move of reprieve. “And that f*ckin’ song y’all got did not start the beef with us / This sh*t been brewin’ in a pot, now I’m heatin’ up / I don’t care what Cole think, that Dot sh*t was weak as f*ck / Champagne trippin’, he is not f*ckin’ easin’ up/ N***a calling Top to see if Top wanna peace it up.”

While “Push Ups (Drop and Give Me 50)” has yet to land on streaming, all signs point to an imminent release – and that there’s more on the way.
