Whew! So it’s “f**k Drake” now?
According to Pusha T, summer 2018 was going to be a “surgical summer,” and he may be keeping true to his word. While the diss tracks stopped, fans of the Daytona rapper haven’t let it go.
During a performance in Chicago, Pusha overlooked a crowd chanting “f**k Drake.” Scroll to the end of this article to watch the video.
The beef started with Pusha accusing Drake of using ghost writers, which led to Drake teasing Pusha about his age and album sales and resulted in Pusha drudging up Drake’s hidden son.
With the release of Push’s DAYTONA came some heavy hits towards Young Money’s Drake, Wayne and Birdman. “Infrared” accused Drake of having a ghost writer after it equated the “I’m Upset” rapper’s success with Trump’s presidential win. In the track, Pusha also head nodded Rick Ross’s “Idols Become Rivals” from 2017:
“Oh, now it’s okay to kill Baby
Niggas looked at me crazy like I really killed a baby
Salute Ross ’cause the message was pure
He see what I see when you see Wayne on tour”
A few hours later, Drake responded to Pusha with “Duppy Freestyle.” The three-minute-long track — the title of which is a Jamaican term for “evil spirit” and UK slang for “destroy” — blasted Push himself and Kayne West.
After Pusha called him out for “workin’ with someone else on a couple of Vs,” Drake reminded him (and everyone else) that he’s helped Kanye write before. (Back in 2016, Kanye publicly thanked Drake for helping with “30 Hours” and “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1.”) He went on to assumably confirm the rumors that he was helping Kanye with music while he was secluded in a secret location in Wyoming.
Drake teased Pusha for being older than his label head before telling him to “hola at [him] when [he’s] multi-million.” “Tell ‘Ye, ‘We got a invoice comin’ to you’/Considerin’ that we just sold another 20 for you,” Drake concluded.
Pusha’s initial response came in the form of a tweet telling Drake to send the invoice along, a request Drake obliged. The paperwork billed G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam $100,000 for “promotional assistance and career reviving.”
The “Trouble on My Mind” artist’s secondary reaction came in the form of “The Story of Adidon.” One of the track’s most notable components is the accompanying photo, which is an image of Drake in blackface.
“The Story of Adidon” brought Drake’s parents into the mix. Calling his dad “money-suit Dennis,” Pusha raps “Dennis Graham stay off the gram, b***h, I’m on one.”
He contined: “You mention wedding ring like it’s a bad thing/Your father walked away at five, hell of a dad thing/ Marriage is somethin’ that Sandi never had, Drake/ How you a winner, but she keep comin’ in last place?”
The rapper touched on Drake’s mixed-race and hair, claiming that Drake “always felt you weren’t black enough.” “Afraid to grow it ’cause your ‘fro wouldn’t nap enough,” he said.
Pusha even dragged OVO 40 into things:
OVO 40, hunched over like he 80, tick, tick, tick/
How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick
