Young Money President Mack Maine has offered his take on the current war of words between Lil Wayne and Pusha T, claiming fans shoudl not expect a full-fledged rap war.
In Mack Maine's eyes, they have bigger things to worry about than entertaining a feud.
"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)
He also offered up some words on Wayne going at Pusha on wax.
So what about "Goulish"? "In a nutshell, if a gnat or a fly keep flyin' around you, eventually you gonna swing and swat it and just get it out the way," Mack said, using an analogy in which Pusha would play the insect. "Sometimes you swat it and the gnat dies; sometimes it just go away. ... You can keep flyin', just fly somewhere else, though. We chillin'." (MTV)
Despite Maine's stance, Young Money star Drake reportedly went at the Virginia rapper last weekend.
Drake's YMCMB big homie Lil' Wayne put out the diss track "Goulish" a couple days ago aimed at Pusha T in response to his "Exodus 23:1" record, and now, Drizzy has some words of his own for Pusha. During his Club Paradise Tour set this weekend in Washington D.C., Drake said, "If you was doing 16s when I was 16 and your sh*t still flopped and you switched teams, don't talk to me my n*gga." This immediately set off a ton of Tweets saying that Drake had called out Pusha on stage. And with this, the drama continues. (Complex)
Last week, Weezy put the G.O.O.D. Music star on blast with his new "Goulish" record.
The beef is on. This evening YMCMB flagship artist Lil Wayne did the expected and dropped a scathing dis record titled "Goulish" aimed at Clipse lyrical monster Pusha-T. "F--k Pusha-T and everybody that love him. His head up his a** so I'ma have to head butt him" Wayne raps on the intro to the record. N*ggas can't see me. Not even a glimpse. Too many banana clips, I feel like a chimps." (RapFix)
