Following his hometown Toronto Raptors’ first NBA title in a victory over the favored Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Thursday night, Drake promised to release two new songs in celebration of the occasion.
On early Saturday morning, the Toronto-based rapper did exactly that.
The two new tracks, titled “Omertà” and “Money in the Grave,” are a collection titled “The Best in The World Pack,” which clocks in at just under seven minutes. In “Omertà,” Drake not-so-subtly mentions Los Angeles Lakers star forward and Brentwood resident LeBron James, rapping “Ethics and values, mob traditions, old fashioned/Monopoly action/Bronny buying up Brentwood like he still in Akron.”
He also mentions his Las Vegas residency, the Forbes list of the wealthiest rap billionaires of 2019, and his long-running feud with Pusha T.
“Money in the Grave,” which features Rick Ross, is a bouncy dance track that seems to mark the end of their feud.
Despite his promise to release the songs following the first NBA Finals win in the Raptors’ 24-year history, there is no mention of the Golden State Warriors or the win itself. But the art does feature the Larry O’Brien trophy.
These are the first new songs from Drake this year.
