G.O.O.D. Music rapper Pusha T has ruffled the feathers of bloggers across the globe this week with the new release of a freestyle called “Don’t F*ck With Me”, allegedly aimed at Young Money’s Drake.
On the track, Pusha uses Drake’s “Dreams Money Can Buy” instrumental and applies his own concepts.
Subliminal rap disses are tricky. Sometimes wayward lines develop into full blown rap battles, mostly nowadays, rap sublimes amount only to a bunch of blog comments and Twitter banter. Because he didn’t mention there is no telling exactly who Pusha T is aiming at, but the Clipse rapper clearly has someone set in his sights on his latest freestyle “Don’t F— With Me.” Using Drizzy’s “Dreams Money Can Buy” as his backdrop Pusha Ton throws ambiguous lines like the opening “The nerve of ya, he’ll sit and clip at your lines like he ain’t heard of ya/ I seen it happen before that man will murder ya.” It’s likely that the Re-Up Gang general is aiming at former G.O.O.D. Music comrade Consequence. Some have suggested on Twitter that Push has also taken aim at Drake. (RapFix)
Speculation of the track aiming at Drake’s head emerged after Pusha referenced rappers working on their second albums, as Drizzy’s Take Care sophomore LP drops next month.
“Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords/ Fame such a funny thing for sure, when n*ggas start believing all them encores/ I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour/ See yourself as I pull up in that mirror tint/ Skins vs. blouses, you mirror Prince, ‘Chappelle’s Show,’ all of you Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who is for real penning?” (“Don’t F*ck With Me”)
Despite the alleged disses, Pusha ends the track promising there are no direct shots at the song’s conclussion.
So…here’s a track that should incite some interesting discussions within the hip-hop community. Unless I’m reading wayyy too into it, there appear to be some shots fired at Drake on Pusha T’s new freestyle track, “Don’t Fuck Wit Me,” which uses the instrumental from Drizzy’s “Dreams Money Can Buy.” Now, I realize that Pusha proceeds to say “no shots” at the end of the track, but he also laughs maniacally and says “but nothing goes unseen.” (Prefix Mag)
Last week, a Young Money affiliate and youth marketer spoke on Drake’s perceived “soft” image.
“Drake is a very emotional rapper, bordering R&B melodrama, and was a child actor,” Jason Stein posits. “When you couple that with being on the Young Money label, which is considered a pretty tough group, and his swagger or braggadocio, there’s are unusual juxtaposition that people start to question, and then poke fun at.” (E!
