G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T appears unfazed by the hype surrounding his rumored Lil Wayne diss track "Exodus 23:1" and decided to perform the record for the first time live in his own hometown.
Footage of Pusha's weekend performance in Virginia landed online Sunday (June 10).
Last night, Pusha T returned to his home state, as part of his tour with Future, for a performance in Richmond, VA. During his set at The National, he deicded to give the first performance of his controversial record 'Exodus 23:1?. We are still waiting on that response to Lil Wayne's 'Ghoulish' track.

Last weekend, the Clipse rapper refused to confirm whether "Exodus 23:1" is a subliminal track aimed at Young Money.
Pusha T still hasn't said anything about whether or not he was dissing artists from YMCMB on his latest track "Exodus 23:1." In fact, tonight at Hot 97 Summer Jam, we ran into him backstage and asked him about it, and he just shrugged and headed to the stage to perform his verse on "Mercy" with fellow G.O.O.D. Music artist Big Sean (he didn't mention the beef on stage either). And with that, the speculation continues. "We asked @PUSHA-T about "Exodus" and the YMCMB beef. He just shrugged, then headed to the stage with Big Sean." (Complex)
Earlier this month, G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean also killed the idea of entertaining a rap beef between both camps.
"I think beef is weak. Crack is wack. I don't encourage that," Sean said in an interview. "Yeah, I'm cool with Pusha T, I'm cool with everybody. The thing is, people gotta understand that we got no point in beefing. We got families to take care of, we got moms to take care of. I ain't about to be over here arguing with nobody. We all on the same team. We all young men, black men, black, white, it doesn't matter, but just entrepreneurs trying to get it." (Wired 96.5)
Young Money President Mack Maine recently downplayed Weezy and Pusha's publicized issues.
"It's not like that. I don't see it like that. That's not what we in the game for," Young Money president Mack Maine told MTV News of a potential G.O.O.D./YMCMB dustup. "If it ever came to that, God forbid, that's a whole different story, but right now we're just tryin' to get paper, we're just tryin' to get money, man, and make good music. And ['My Homies Still'] was a great song that was made before that situation happened, and I'm not 'bout to go into the studio and tell Wayne to take [Big Sean] off. Wayne not tryna take him off -- he's good peeps, he's fam." (MTV)
