The Rapper Pusha T Turns Down Drake Beef: "It's Not As If I Beat The Lox Or The Hov In A Battle...
Pusha T continued his press tour in support of his upcoming album It's Not Dry Yet by stopping by Wallo and Gillie Da Kid's Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast on Monday (February 21).
It was mentioned during the hour-plus discussion that Gillie wondered if Pusha T had anticipated the seismic impact of his Drake diss track in 2018, "Story of Adidon."
“I didn’t know how it was going to react,” he explained. “All it was I knew I was speaking my truth and I knew I was speaking the truth… And I feel like the truth hurts. I don’t care what is going on, I feel like the truth definitely hurts… When you dealing with him, you’re dealing on a pop level or dealing on TMZ levels. I was like, ‘Damn, that’s a lot of attention. And it couldn’t have happened at a better time. My album out and I got the album of the year.”
Yet, Pusha T didn't celebrate the victory because he doesn't hold Drake in the same esteem as rhymers such as JAY-Z or Jadakiss.
“On an artist level, I didn’t look at it so crazy because it wasn’t like I just beat The LOX in a rap battle or I just beat [JAY-Z] in a rap battle or some shit,” Pusha T said.
