Pusha T and Big Sean Speak on Their Different Views Toward Lil Wayne

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.”

G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer is in stores today.—Mark Lelinwalla

    Exactly Pusha needs to stop being mad. For all his Biggie rip off flow and punchlines he will NEVER be as big as Wayne. WAYNE CANT EVEN WALK THROU A MALL ANYMORE. Work ethic aint the same and washed up 90′s coke rap is just as played as wayne.

  • Upstateassasin

    Wayne has already made his mark on Hip Hop. He has over 5 platinum albums. He doesn’t need to record another song and he’ll go down in history. Pusha on the other hand still has a lot of work to do to get to Wayne’s level. Wayne can kick back and let the hottest two young rap acts out right now carry his label for him. The only person from the G.O.O.D. camp that should address Wayne is Kanye.

    push is not out of line at all for a number of reasons:
    1. Push is simply more eloquent and intelligent than wayne. Not that wayne hasn’t had amazing lines and songs, he has a lot of talent. But Push is more than a 90′s coke rapper, he’s an intellectual who knows how detail a lifestyle, which lil wayne is not able to do
    2. Push has been around for a long time, is at a major label, he has no requirement to not diss wayne. He doesn’t need to pay dues, he’s paid them. He has the complete right to start an all out war and probably would if label folks/Kanye weren’t asking him not to.
    3. Push is holding back. D4 was not only “not that good” it was pretty god awful. I’m not a wayne hater, I’m really not, I was fucking psyched for it. But it blew. Some good lines, but too much eating pussy lines and too much trukfit. He doesn’t seem to realize no one cares that he skates. Seans a bit of a politician. He’s one of my favorite around right now and I wouldn’t call him a sell out, he’s just all about positivity and beefing would seem hypocritical. He’s also got My Homies Still on Waynes next album. Don’t use his positivity as some kind of barometer for the respect level Wayne deserves. And Mercy on D4 sucked in my opinion. I used to like ymcmb a lot but they fell off like Mufasa off that cliff
