Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has no plans on apologizing for publicly going after G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T on multiple occasions as of late, however, he does admit quickly reacting to an alleged subliminal diss record.
Asked what the status of their perceived feud is, Weezy F. Baby said he has moved past the situation.
“I just finished recording my “I Am Not a Human Being II” album. And we’re starting to work on the Young Money album,” Wayne said in an interview before addressing Pusha. “It really wasn’t no beef, you know. It was just me. I just reacted. Just a reaction, a simple reaction. I don’t apologize for it because I’m human. But it was just my human reaction. I don’t take it back. But there’s no beef. Beef is a whole different thing. … I’ll move on.” (The Washington Post)
R&B singer The-Dream, who appears on Pusha’s controversial “Exodus 23:1″ anthem, recently said he did not view the track as a Young Money diss.
The-Dream just wants to kill the competition — with his success. When asked if Team Pusha T would indulge in a rap beef and aim a dis record at Lil Wayne, he downplayed the importance of a response record and stressed the need for a good record. “The only way that we can respond is make great records, and nobody is gonna beat me at that,” The-Dream told MTV News when we caught up with him in Hollywood last week. The singer/songwriter told us he isn’t down with subliminal disses, remembering a lesson that his grandfather once taught him: ” ‘If you’re talking to somebody, you speak to them or you just walk up to them and slap them.’ I think beef is so ’96. It’s like, what’s the point? I don’t think anybody is actually that good enough to direct anything at anyone. You can’t take that much time, there’s too much money in the words that either one of us have — me or Pusha — to direct directly at anyone.” (MTV)
Recently, Pusha refused to confirm whether or not “Exodus 23:1″ is a Lil Wayne-targeted subliminal.
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)
