Chicago’s Chance The Rapper doesn’t want any smoke with the 6 God. The hip-hop star discusses his feelings about lyrical emcees not standing a chance when it comes to battling OVO Sound boss Drake.
In a new chat with Spotify personality Joe Budden, Chance acknowledged the former Slaughterhouse member’s short-lived battle with Drizzy not going his way.
“You wanted me to come out and make a diss record about Drake? You wanted me to come out and say, ‘Yo Kanye’s my man.’ I saw what it feels like to still be a good lyricist and rap at Drake and nobody care. Especially not Drake. Because you did it before. So I was like – in all honesty, I would never diss Drake.” (Joe Budden Podcast)
In early July, Pusha reflected on his Drake dispute and promised to listen to his Scorpion album.
“He said what he said, I said what I said, now it’s done. It stayed how it was supposed to stay, just words,” grins Pusha. “It was definitely good for hip-hop. What has been more energetic than this?” On Drake’s new album, Scorpion, he addresses Pusha’s revelations about his child with the lyrics: “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.” Will he give it a listen? “Hell yeah! I gotta have something to compare Daytona to, don’t I?” he says. (The Guardian)
The same week, G-Unit boss 50 Cent said Pusha officially won the Drake feud after getting super personal with his “Story of Adidon” diss record.
“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)
In June, 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)
