G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T recently talked about his frequent connection to all things Young Money-related and how he is focused on making hits but down for any potential rap battle.
While he does not see himself battling Young Money's Drake anytime soon, Pusha did not sway away from the possibility of having to face-off against the Toronto rapper.
"Listen, at the end of the day, I'm ready for anything and anybody," Pusha said in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. "I don't, this is music to me, like, this is music, this is something I'm good at. Like, it's something that I'm very good at. Like I said man, I'm spiteful. I'm saying, you're asking me, so I've got to tell you, that's real. I don't shy away from anything. I'm not into it like that. And like I said, I keep it tasteful. I keep it tasteful and I keep it hip-hop, I keep it rap. Like, that's it. I ain't trippin'. And I'm not here to discredit what they've achieved. Drake is good. This is like real talk. These guys are good." (Whoolywood)
Last spring, reports claimed Drake fired a shot at Pusha during a Washington, DC concert.
Drake's YMCMB big homie Lil' Wayne put out the diss track "Goulish" a couple days ago aimed at Pusha T in response to his "Exodus 23:1" record, and now, Drizzy has some words of his own for Pusha. During his Club Paradise Tour set this weekend in Washington D.C., Drake said, "If you was doing 16s when I was 16 and your sh*t still flopped and you switched teams, don't talk to me my n*gga." This immediately set off a ton of Tweets saying that Drake had called out Pusha on stage. And with this, the drama continues. (Complex)
Young Money boss Lil Wayne took his issues with Pusha to the next level by dropping a diss record last May.
The beef is on. This evening YMCMB flagship artist Lil Wayne did the expected and dropped a scathing dis record titled "Goulish" aimed at Clipse lyrical monster Pusha-T. "F--k Pusha-T and everybody that love him. His head up his a** so I'ma have to head butt him" Wayne raps on the intro to the record. N*ggas can't see me. Not even a glimpse. Too many banana clips, I feel like a chimps." (RapFix)
Drake previously said he did not think the rapper's "Don't F*ck With Me" freestyle took aim at him.
"I listened to it and I just couldn't pick it out. I couldn't pick out where I was supposed to be offended," Drake told radio personality Funkmaster Flex Thursday (October 13) night. "Everyone was just like, 'Oh you got dissed in this song by Pusha T.' First of all, I've never really had any interaction with Pusha T so for him to diss me would be purely issues that he's having within himself...We've met but we've been just always cordial with each other. I'm a fan of The Clipse. I say it in interviews. So I've never really had any issues with him. But it's a frustrating time for a lot of people right now, I get it. So if it was directed at me, just make it a little more direct next time. I'm up for whatever man. I didn't take offense to it though." (Hot 97)
