Kardinal Denies Link To Mos Def’s Ex-Wife, Speaks On Lil’ Wayne & Pusha-T Collabo
Recent rumors had a prominent Canadian rapper linked to Mos Def’s ex-wife, model-turned-author, Alana Wyatt. Well, Toronto emcee Kardinal Offishall wants to set the record straight: Wyatt is not his baby’s mother. “No baby mothers,” Kardi explained to XXLMag.com. “That’s one thing I’ve been really careful about in my career. And it’s not even like a career move, but it’s like to me all that shit is still precious. I don’t need any grief from wifey thinking I got kids from random chicks. I don’t do that random shit too tough. Not to disrespect my boy, but it’s my man Saukretes’ [from Redman's Gilla House crew] baby moms. It’s not me.” Click here to watch Kardinal Clears Up Baby Rumors. Love triangles aside, Kardi found himself caught between two feuding rappers, Lil’ Wayne and The Clipse’s Pusha-T, on his recently released mixtape banger, “Swag.” Despite trading jabs in several interviews, Kardi said the two parties didn’t mind being on the same track. “Pusha did his verse first and Wayne definitely heard Pusha ’cause he put his [verse] on after Pusha,” the Toronto emcee recalled. “That joint is never gonna come out officially, by the way. There’s no beef or nothing like that. “Wayne had a respect for me and Pusha had a certain respect for me as well,” he continued. “I think at the end of the day, the song was too ill and they weren’t really worried about each other being on the joint. I sent the joint completed to Pusha and [he] was like, ‘This shit [is] crazy.’ He didn’t say nothing to me about, ‘No faggot ass Wayne,’ or this, that, and the next thing. He was like, ‘Yo, the shit is dope.’” Click here to watch Kardi Speak On Lil’ Wayne & Pusha-T Collabo. Make sure to check back next week for a full feature on Kardinal Offishall.
