Weeks after Pusha T sent the Internet into a frenzy with his anti-Lil Wayne/Baby guest verse on Ludacris‘ “Tell Me What They Mad For,” the song’s full version has finally surfaced.
The full-length song hit music blogs all over on Sunday (December 23).
Yuck! About a month ago, we got wind of Pusha T’s disrespectful verse on an unreleased Ludacris song, “Tell Me What They Mad For.” With only a snippet and some typed out lyrics, the news of P’s venom traveled through the Net within minutes. Recently, I even spoke to Pusha who confirmed that he was definitely talking about Wayne and Baby on the track. Following the hoopla, nothing further happened as the song remained tucked away in email inboxes… until today. Thanks to Tapemasters Inc, the full song was released and the sharp eyes at UHTN were quick to grab it up. As reported, the lyrics are the same and he even goes hard at Birdman. (Miss Info TV)
In Pusha’s verse, he takes direct aim at both Weezy and Birdman.
“If you sellin’ all the records and you f*ck’ all the b*tches/And you sit a top of the charts and you livin’ out your wishes/With your chains all smothered and your watches all glittered/And your ghost and your phantoms all comin’ home to visit/Or maybe cause your b*tches was never really your b*tches/With your baby mama f*cking every rapper in the business/N*ggas saying you was better when the drugs was in your system/Now your crack swag gone ever since you came from prison/Got you tweeting all stupid, is you skatin’, is you dissin’/Found out your Ghost leased and your Phantom just rented/Won’t need it in your name like Pac when he went missing/Makaveli lives on so I’m riding on you b*tches/Hail Mary be the witness, Lord Willin’ I was dealing/Stupid motherf*cking five star, tatted on his ceiling/Bullseye, be the motherf*cking target for this killing/Ain’t y’all the motherf*ckers with the millions?” (“Tell Me What They Mad For”)
In late November, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper confirmed firing shots at Cash Money’s two heavyweights.
Though Lil Wayne wasn’t mentioned by name, avid hip-hop listeners were sure he was talking about the Young Money rapper. During P’s exclusive interview with VIBE, he confirmed that he was indeed talking about Weezy and Birdman. “It’s new and was for Luda’s album,” Pusha told VIBE. He also explained his motivation for the verse. “Oh, because it’s a Swizz beat. You got to blame Swizz. See, when Wayne got a Swizz beat… with the “Ghoulish” track; he got busy, well, he tried to.” (VIBE)
He also revealed what type of reaction Ludacris gave him over the diss.
Pusha says Ludacris wasn’t aware he would be taking shots at the YMCMB family and ended up asking him to change his verse upon hearing it. However, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper says he has no plans on doing so. “I play by old school rules. I play by the fundamentals and foundation of what hip-hop was based on,” Pusha explains on why he rarely mentions his targets by name. (VIBE)
