Pusha T Says He Has No Problem With Drake

Pusha T is the rap Freddy Krueger of dream land. Today, not only did he launched his new website www.pusha-t.com, but he dropped a record called “What Dreams Are Made Of” from his Fear of God II: Let Us Pray EP coming out next month.

Hip-hop fans are still talking about the last song Pusha T put out, “Don’t Fuck With Me,” over the instrumental to Drake’s “Dreams Money Can Buy.”

Pusha didn’t call out names on that one, but he threw daggers. Lines like “Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords/ Fame such a funny thing for sure when niggas start believing all those encores/ I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour” had fans speculating about he was rifling off his lyrical ammo at.

One name that came up consistently on the rap blogs was Drakes. To which Drizzy answered on a recent Funkmaster Flex interview: “I listened to it and I just couldn’t pick it out,” he said referring to the alleged diss. “I couldn’t pick out where I was supposed to be offended. First of all I 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 never really had an issue with him but you know 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 lil’ more direct next time.”

Pusha saw no problem with Drizzy’s retort.

“What he said on Flex, any self respectable man is supposed to say when you sitting on Flex with five million listeners… When you have a album coming out,” Pusha told XXL. “That’s all well and good. I don’t take that any type of way. I seen the same thing happen when Drake put out his ‘Dream’s Money Can Buy.’ His rendition. That was a freestyle over that record. Everybody was like ‘who is he talking about?’ so on and so forth. I never thought anything about it. I never felt no type of way about it. People was like [Drake] said ‘my favorite rappers lost it or they not alive no more.’ Everybody was like is he talking about Kanye, Jay-Z, Pusha, the Clipse? Man, none of that shit ever phased me. I never looked at [his rhymes] no type of way. I looked at it like that was a amazing record.”

Pusha says some fans should stop speculating and just enjoy the raps.

“I think people are putting too much on it,” Push said. “I’m a fan of [Drake’s]. I been a fan of dude. I always thought his shit was good. But when it comes to this rap, I don’t play a whole bunch of games. I just don’t. When I attack these instrumentals, I’m really feeling myself. I really am. I’m good man. When I put that record out, I never put ‘Drake Diss.” That’s what the people felt about it. I can tell you for sure, you listen to the whole first verse of the song, Drake ain’t never stole nothing from me. A lot of stuff, people are picking and choosing what they feel applies to him and so on and so forth. There are a lot of different angles and mindsets I was in when I was writing that record. But I think it is what it is and I love it.”

      You retards don’t make any sense.

      First of all, it wasn’t a diss and even if it was it had no direct references to Drake, when I heard it I thought he was talking bout lil wayne.

      Second of all, Drake took the bait, the media pushed on him that Push-T has beef with him and he went along with it.


      The reason Pusha-T knows how to handle this is because the media did this to him years ago, the media tried to create beef between Clipse & Dipset. But Pusha clocked it.

      The same thing happened to wayne, Wayne didn’t just come out and say he’s better than Jay-Z he was manipulated into it.

      And all we hear are sound bites and you too are now part of the manipulation.

      When you see those people crying on reality shows/ xfactor, notice you never see the build up only the footage of them crying.

    @JugularKill Thats exactly whats going on. The media creates this shit and people fall for it every time. I’m sure Pusha and Drake don’t mind it tho. Any publicity is good publicity when it comes to selling records.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really something which I think I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am taking a look ahead on your subsequent post, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!

    I want to express my appreciation to you for bailing me out of this issue. After surfing throughout the the net and finding principles that were not beneficial, I believed my life was done. Existing without the approaches to the difficulties you’ve fixed all through your entire post is a serious case, as well as the ones that would have badly damaged my entire career if I had not come across your blog post. Your actual talents and kindness in dealing with a lot of stuff was priceless. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I am able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for your reliable and amazing help. I won’t be reluctant to recommend your blog post to anybody who requires direction on this situation.
