Octavian Drops A Freestyle Over Drake’s “Behind Barz”

Octavian was divinely inspired by the vindictive streak Drake displayed on his “Behind Barz” freestyle. Drake made his London stopover a memorable one. Not only did he replace DJ Khaled on the grandest of European festival stages, but he also got creative with local producer Richie Beatz, who produced the beat for his now-infamous freestyle. Although Drake and Octavian have publicly acknowledged interest in each other’s music, the Londoner didn’t bring up past ghosts, not once.
Octavian’s material is not heavily tinged in regret, for much of his music expressed this unfound desire to seek revenge. On “Behind Barz,” the London emcee shows off the uneven distribution of his talents. The attributes that I speak of, are effortlessly reshuffled in order of preference depending on the weather and his mood. His first full-length project Spaceman, dropped this past week, and it too demonstrates an almost schizophrenic desire to change course midsentence. Check out “Behind Barz” before you delve any further.
We are nothing alike
Tell’em go stack some sh*t
You’re speaking but you’re not telling me sh*t
Someone point out where the enemy is
I got no time — stack this P
Hope nobody is in debt with me.
