Hear All Drake VS Pusha T Disses, Plus Full Breakdown Of How It Started
Written by admin on 5 June 2018
last week. Pusha T released his new Kanye West-produced album Daytona. The track “Infrared” directly compared Drake’s rise to that of Donald Trump’s and also referenced his alleged ghost writer Quentin Miller. “The lyric pennin’ equal the Trumps winnin’ / The bigger question is how the Russians did it / It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin.”
In less than 24 hours, Drake responded with his own track, “Duppy Freestyle,” an entire diss track aimed at Pusha. This in itself is a stunning move. Drake has always been more passive with his other beefs, but such an aggressive response is huge for him.
There are a few choice lines on his diss track. In one, he once again attacks Pusha’s drug dealing narrative: “Man, you might’ve sold to college kids for Nike and Mercedes / But you act like you sold drugs for Escobar in the ’80s.” And in another he gets at Kanye “What do you really think of the n**** that’s makin’ your beats? / I’ve done things for him I thought that he never would need / Father had to stretch his hands out and get it from me.” Finally he ends with, “Tell ‘Ye, ‘We got a invoice comin’ to you’ / Considerin’ that we just sold another 20 for you.” And sure enough, Drake later Instagramed an image of an OVO invoice.
This is when things get truly vicious. On Tuesday, Pusha released an absolutely savage track about Drake called “The Story of Adidon.” Let’s start with the artwork, which dug up an old photo of Drake wearing blackface. According to the photographer David Leyes, the photo is “a strong statement made by a black man about the fucked up culture he is living in.” Yet, even in this context, it does not look good for Drake.
Then there’s the song, which absolutely dismantles Drake’s good guy persona. Pusha brings up Drake’s alleged secret child with adult film star Sophie Brussaux. While these are only rumors, Pusha talks about them with complete certainty: “A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap / We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts / You are hiding a child, let that boy come home / Deadbeat mothafucka, playin’ border patrol, ooh / Adonis is your son / And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s real / Love that baby, respect that girl / Forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world.”
It should also be noted that Adidon is the name of Drake’s upcoming Adidas line, which Pusha T has preemptively re-defined with his diss track.
