In a new interview, Fif suggested Pusha getting under Drake’s skin by exposing his secret child on a diss song ultimately gave him the battle win.
“Pusha-T was dead in pocket with that because he offered information to the public before, that they didn’t know was real. When that happens, they go, ‘Wait.’ They heard the line, ‘That was true?’ They go, ‘Oh sh*t.’ It’s really, people’s interest in Drake is what made the line so good. It became has important as he was to the actual culture because these are true statements. Then you’re going, from Drake’s space, he can make a song that sounds like God wrote it right now and they’re gonna listen to it and be like, ‘That’s cool.'” (Whoolywood Shuffle)
Last month, Drake’s mom applauded her mini-me for being the bigger man and not responding to Pusha’s “Story of Adidon” diss record.
“Sure do,” Sandi said when asked if the rap feuds should end. “They’re too grown up for that. I believe he always makes the best decisions in the end.” (TMZ)
In June, hip-hop personality DJ Akademiks claimed Drake recently hit him up and said the feud turned too personal for him to entertain Pusha’s disses.
“He said, ‘For you as an outsider to this situation, you won’t get it and fans won’t get it.’ He said at times the sh*t goes beyond just music. He says that if this continued and it kept on being escalated, and I believe he’s talking about if he dropped his [response] track, he says it would go to a point of no return and it would have taken him to a very dark place. … He said it will all make sense and it doesn’t make sense to you right now because I’ve said to him, ‘You might have your reasons but you have to understand we’re going to be disappointed’ – he said, June 29. There is music there. There are answers on his album to make us understand.” (DJ Akademiks)
In a recent interview, Pusha-T admitted he’s back on his work grind over feuding with Drake.
“Yeah man, I’m off that. Daytona. I’m about Daytona. I’m about G.O.O.D. Music. I’m about everything we’re doing with this music over here. I’m off that. [We have] all this heat. Tons of it.” (Big Boy TV)
