Following the release of his Care Package project earlier this year, Drake decided to gift fans with another internet favorite on Friday (Sept. 13). The 6 God’s “Behind Barz” freestyle for Link Up TV landed as a bonus on the Top Boy soundtrack, which is now available on streaming services.
A huge fan of the British crime drama, Drake would up serving as an executive producer for season three. Kano, who stars as Sully in the show, told Billboard that Drake played an integral role in reviving Top Boy and securing a Netflix deal for the series.
The grime rapper recalled Drizzy saying, “‘I don’t want to get involved too much. I want you to make the show you always did. You don’t need to try to dress it up for an American audience. It needs to be exactly the same. If you need me, I’m here. And if you don’t, cool.’ He was really cool about it and I respect him for that.”
The freestyle originally released online back in July of 2018 in support of Drizzy’s Scorpion album. Look for additional contributions on the soundtrack from Popcaan, Little Simz, AJ Tracey, Baka Not Nice, Giggs and more.
