G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T is in tears laughing at the 6 God. The hip-hop veteran has caught social media’s attention after reacting to a clip of Drake getting overly emotional about their summer feud.
A screenshot has surfaced of King Push using laugh emojis to a clip of Drake addressing his personal issues with him for dissing his friend Noah “40” Shebib.

The biggest rapper with the biggest basketball player is a great concept by the way… THERE ARE NO FUCKING RULES IN BATTLE RAP! Drake has a tremendous amount of success! I’m surprised he’s taking the loss to Pusha so hard! Stuttering and body language is everything in this clip! #JustMyOpinion
In the same interview, Drake explained his motivation behind not releasing a career-ending diss song aimed at Kanye West and Pusha-T.
“I got home and I just listened back to it, and I was like, man, this is not something I ever wanna be remembered for,” he said. “This is not even a place that I necessarily want to go. And to all the people who enjoy that, I tip my hat to you. By the way, hell of a chess move. The song, I thought it was trash. But the chess move was genius. Back against the wall. I either go all the way filthy or I fall back and I have this sort of chink in my armor for the rest of time to a rap purist. Which is fine, I can live with that. I would much rather live with that than the things that I was about to… the research I did, the things that I was gonna say, and the places that I was gonna go. Not only for him, but the other guy too.” (“The Shop”)
Back in June, Rap-A-Lot Records boss J Prince said Drake had a career-ending Kanye song.
The Rap-A-Lot Records CEO tells us Drake was, in fact, ready to respond to Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon” before J Prince stepped in and told him to stand down. According to Prince, what Drake had “cocked and loaded” would’ve “ended” Kanye, and caused a lot of pain. He insists they’re not in the business of destroying families … which is why he told Drizzy to stand down. (TMZ)
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)
