Apparently Lil Wayne doesn’t have to speculate. He feels that Pusha T is coming at the Young Money camp on the new song “Exodus 2:31.”
Last night (May 23), Push dropped a new song from his forthcoming solo LP and shortly after Weezy F. Baby took to his @liltunechi Twitter page, writing “fuk Pusha T and anybody that love em.”
So what ruffled the Birdman Jr.’s feathers? Well, Pusha throws a ton of subliminal lines all throughout his new ditty, which samples Notorious B.I.G.’s voice from “What’s Beef.”
“Throwing that flag up, runnin’ around like you hot sh–, taking half of everything you get,” Pusha raps on the chorus. Later, Push rhymes “contract all fucked up./ I guess that means you all fucked./ You signed to one nigga, then signed to another nigga, then signed to three niggas./ Now that’s bad luck.”
Pusha also sends a salvo at an unknown producer on the song “You can keep your beats, nigga / We’d much rather share your bitch, nigga, bitch nigga,” he spits.
For the record, no names are actually said on the song. Pusha was unable to be reached for clarification. He’s currently in France at the Cannes Film Festival. Kanye West and the G.O.O.D. Music family were all on hand for the premier of ‘Ye’s short film, Cruel Summer. The G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, which bares the same name, is due out this summer. Pusha T’s new solo opus is slated for the Fall.
Lil’ Wayne and Pusha T have long been on opposite sides, ever since The Clipse dropped “Mr. Me Too” back in 2006. Wayne took the song as a slight to him and a back and forth between the two ensued on songs and in interviews.
Last year, there was also speculation that Pusha was dissing YMCMB’s Drake on “Dreams Money Can Buy.” (Pusha denied dissing Drake).
When Funkmaster Flex asked Drizzy about the song in October of 2011, Drake said: “I listened to it and I just couldn’t pick it out. 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. You know, I’m up for whatever, man. I didn’t take offense to it, though.”—Shaheem Reid
