Is Nicki Minaj Dissing Pusha T on Birdman’s “Born Stunna” Remix?

Lil Wayne took direct shots at Pusha T on his “Goulish” track. Now, is Weezy’s Young Money rapstress, Nicki Minaj, taking a shot at Pusha T too?

It sure sounds like it on Birdman’s new, “Born Stunna (Remix),” which features Lil Wayne and Nicki, and was released on Monday (July 2). On the track, Minaj seems to subliminally jab the former Clipse member.

“Roll the kush up/It’s a chess game…but fuck a Pusha,” raps Minaj on the remix, seemingly joining into the back and forth between Young Money and Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, which Pusha is a member of.

Of course, there’s no love lost between Pusha and Weezy, especially as of late.

In late May, Pusha released his controversial track, “Exodus 23:1,” which seemed to not only take shots at Wayne, but Young Money’s Drake as well.

That didn’t sit well with Weezy, who unleashed, “Goulish,” a diss track aimed toward the G.O.O.D. Music rhyme slinger.

“Fuck Pusha T and anybody that love ’em/His head up his ass, I’ma have to head butt him, gut him,” Wayne raps on the track.

“Ni–as can’t see me, not even a glimpse, too many banana clips I feel like chimps,” Wayne spits later on the record.

“You fuckin’ with some ni–as that will murk ya’ll/Ni–a you softer than a motherfuckin’ Nerf ball, bird call/Brrrrrr, what happened to that boy?/He was talkin’ shit, we put a clappin’ to that boy.”

Last month, Pusha told Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex that he was surprised that “Exodus” triggered a response from Wayne, even though the song didn’t directly say his or Drake’s name.

“I was surprised actually just at the whole, anybody or [Lil] Wayne specifically, answering “Exodus,”” Push explained to Flex on June 20. “I was like, ‘Wait a minute.’ I’ve never seen one record that didn’t say a name cause so much of a firestorm.”

Will Pusha respond to Nicki’s seemingly subliminal jab? On Monday, he was too busy tweeting about “New God Flow,” a scintillating track featuring himself and Kanye West off G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer LP. The track came out the same day as Birdman’s “Born Stunna (Remix).”

It doesn’t seem to be an all-out war between Young Money and G.O.O.D. Music, as originally perceived and projected, either. (Wayne did release “My Homies Still,” a single featuring G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean, days after “Goulish” came out). But can Nicki’s jab change that?

    This is wrong. This is bad reporting, and you should be ashamed of yourself. She very clearly says, “But fuck a push-up.” You’re intentionally misreporting this and you need to have your journalist card taken away.
