The dynamic between Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music and Lil Wayne’s Young Money crew is definitely interesting. Although the label heads have a mutual respect for each other, their soldiers are another story.
G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean and 2 Chainz are openly cool with Weezy, but Pusha T is clearly not.
That fact was reinforced on Hot 97’s morning show on Tuesday morning (September 18), the same day G.O.O.D. Music put out its Cruel Summer compilation album. On the early morning appearance, Pusha and Sean talked about their opposite feelings toward Weezy.
When asked about Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape, which dropped on Sept 3, Pusha was concise.
“It wasn’t that good,” the Virginia rapper said.
“You know what’s tight—’cause me and Wayne is cool, that’s my dog—what I liked, though, that he was rapping on ‘Mercy,’” said an interjecting Big Sean immediately, referring to the fact that Weezy rapped over the G.O.O.D. Music hit.
Added Pusha: “Nicki got off on Mercy, though. She got busy. She got busy. You got to give credit, when it’s due.”
When the laughter—caused by Sean and Pusha’s opposite feelings toward Young Money—subsided, Push insisted that he doesn’t have any personal feeling toward the Young Money boss.
“It ain’t no deal,” he said. “I think a lot of people take it a bit further. I don’t have a lot of ill will towards them, but I write, though. When it gets to those times, you gotta be scathing and say some harsh things in this rap thing…but it’s no biggie.”
