Drake repackages an old freestyle for new song, “Behind Barz”

The bonus track of a ‘Top Boy’-inspired compilation.

Drake has dropped a new song, “Behind Barz,” as part of a brand-new compilation of music inspired by British crime drama Top Boy.

The track is the official version of Drizzy’s Behind Barz 2018 freestyle on British music platform Link Up TV, which dropped shortly after the release of his latest album, Scorpion.

The freestyle’s studio version is the bonus track of a brand-new compilation of music inspired by the television show Top Boy. Its third season—executive produced by Drake—has just premiered on Netflix. The show originally ran for two seasons on Channel 4 before it was axed in 2013.


Though some Canadian rappers—Drake himself included—appear on Top Boy (A Selection of Music Inspired by the Series), it’s first and foremost a showcase of the best British rap has to offer. Little Simz and Dave—who also act in the new season—appear alongside Giggs, AJ Tracey, Nafe Smallz and others.
