OVO Hush Disses Pusha T After Alleged Subliminal Shot at Drake
OVO Hush, a member of the superstar rapper Drake's entourage, has taken to his Instagram to suggest that the Virginia-bred rapper Pusha T has been subliminally dissing Drake because he's scared to do so explicitly.
The post features a clip of an interview between Push and the journalist Rob Markman, who is speaking to the rapper on behalf of the lyrics aggregator and annotation service Genius. In the caption, which can be seen below, Hush writes, "When you don't like someone but you know they can destroy you effortlessly," followed by several crying-laughing emojis and the following hashtags, all of which could serve as warning shots to Pusha, and many of which refer to Drake's beef with Meek Mill from this summer: #Handof6god, #Scared, #Back2Backphobia, #DoubleDareYouNextTime, #BewareOfSingingNigga, #ManUp, #ClosingYourEyesHelps, #ClosingYourMouthWorksBetter, #AtLeastMeekHasNicki.
Pusha has yet to respond to Hush's comments. While he and Drake have never engaged in properly open war of words, most observers trace their bad blood back to at least 2011. Pusha's freestyle over Drake's "Dreams Money Can Buy" beat was widely interpreted as a Drake diss, and the former Clipse member's "Exodus 23:1" appears to have more than a few barbs for Drake and his mentor and label boss Lil Wayne.
Drake is believed to be working on his fourth studio album, Views From the 6, slated for release some time in 2016. His surprise mixtape from this February, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, has been certified Platinum.
