Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has ended a major rumor once and for all. Yeezy has stepped forward to address summer speculation of giving G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T key details to fuel his Drake rap battle.
In a new interview, Kanye immediately shut down the gossip and promised the Pusha/Drake tirade is over.
“People be around your family and be in your house and this and that then, they get mad about a beat and send purple demon emojis. I don’t play like that, I don’t play in that place . . . It’s like, look, it ain’t no beef. We’ll reconcile that one day because we got t. We got work to do because these voices are just too powerful. … Don’t even pull me into that type of conversation. That’s what y’all don’t understand.” (WGCI 107.5)

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)
