In a new interview, King Push briefly reflected on the dispute and promised to listen to Drake’s new 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)
This 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)
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)
