West Coast rapper Ice Cube has a thing or two to say about the Pusha-T/Drake feud. The hip-hop veteran – who notoriously went at N.W.A.‘s Eazy-E on diss records – has weighed-in on the headline-generating rap battle.
Despite not being fully caught up on the beef, Cube said he believed King Push took things too far by going at Drake’s family members.
“I don’t know if that did,” Cube said when asked if he thought Drake fell from the top of rap from his Pusha-T feud. “Your reign becomes over. I think the audience has determined that. You can have three years and own the airwaves but then it’s time for somebody else. That’s just the pattern. That was the pattern with me. My son, O’shea Jackson Jr. has been keeping me updated on [the Pusha/Drake feud] because I’ve been performing myself – dissing is like revenge. Everybody’s gotta figure out what’s over the top, what’s too far, what’s not. [Pusha-T talking about Drake’s mom and dad?] That ain’t cool. I’ma have to see you – I didn’t really speak on families and moms and dads [with ‘No Vaseline.’] I didn’t start it.” (106 KMEL)
Last night, Pusha-T went to Twitter and hinted at Drake possibly dropping $100,000 to dig up dirt on him.
You got a 100k floating around for info? Can’t no amount of money create skeletons that don’t exist… #ImUpset 🤣

This week, Drake hit up his Instagram Story to explain a controversial throwback pic Pusha used to promote his “The Story of Adidon” diss record.
In a new interview, Pusha-T didn’t hold back on explaining why he’s made the battle extra personal.
“All bets are off because of that,” Pusha said referencing Drake mentioning his fiancée’s name in last week’s “Duppy Freestyle” diss record. “All bets should be off. It’s all fair game. Yes. … I’m prepared for everything. I need a few answers. I really do. I really need to understand what makes you take a picture like that. What’s the problem? What’s the problem? Listen, even the baby thing is a little crazy. Who rolls out their baby with a sweatsuit? Get outta here. What are you doing? See the Adidas situation is this. The child, allegedly his new line on Adidas is called ‘Adidon’ which is named after Adonis is son. We couldn’t know about your child until you started selling sweatsuits and sneakers? That’s a rollout. Listen, we don’t know. We know we couldn’t know until he sold the sweatsuit.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
