G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T is keeping the positivity around him despite a publicized feud with Young Money these past few years by co-signing his boss Kanye West appearing at Drake’s OVO Fest this week.
Rather than talk greasy or take any shots, Pusha said he hoped the unexpected appearance would have a lasting impact on the music industry.
“That should be good for them. Like I mean, you know, Ye seemed happy. Drake, he spoke well about it. I mean, it’s all good. I think, hopefully, it’s good for music. Maybe they’ll do some great music together.” (Revolt TV)
Following Ye’s appearance, Drizzy revealed how much he appreciated the rap star coming out to show support and called it possibly one of the most important moments in his life.
“In rap, sometimes we don’t communicate enough,” Drake explained. “Me and Kanye, we hadn’t even talked before we got on stage together. We didn’t rehearse or anything like that. That was my first time seeing him, on stage. Hiw words, that was a moment I clicked out. I don’t know if this is real or not. I’m not sure if I’m still sleeping from the morning, like, I’m dreaming about how this is working out, probably the most important moment in my life today. At the end of the day, I do look up to ‘Ye, he’s a major influence if not the biggest influence in my career.” (Revolt)
During the concert, Ye applauded Drizzy for showing love to Toronto and also said his joint Jay Z Watch the Throne 2011 album was fueled by the 26-year-old.
“It’s been a lot of rappers that came in the game that wasn’t able to do something like this for their city,” Kanye said during the concert. “Me and Hov would have never made Watch the Throne if this n*gga wasn’t putting pressure on us like that.” (OVO Fest)
In February, Pusha spoke on his readiness to battle the Young Money team but also acknowledged they make quality music.
“Listen, at the end of the day, I’m ready for anything and anybody,” Pusha said in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. “I don’t, this is music to me, like, this is music, this is something I’m good at. Like, it’s something that I’m very good at. Like I said man, I’m spiteful. I’m saying, you’re asking me, so I’ve got to tell you, that’s real. I don’t shy away from anything. I’m not into it like that. And like I said, I keep it tasteful. I keep it tasteful and I keep it hip-hop, I keep it rap. Like, that’s it. I ain’t trippin’. And I’m not here to discredit what they’ve achieved. Drake is good. This is like real talk. These guys are good.” (Whoolywood)
