The real reason why the Pusha-T and Drake feud is all over your news feed
Rappers Pusha T and Drake are not holding back in expressing their dislike for each other and unlike everyone else, these talented musicians are doing it with a musical flair. It all started when Pusha released his new album which had a song titled "Infrared", according to Mashable. Needless to say, the song was a direct hit at Drake as some of the lyrics slammed the rapper.
However, Drake wasn't going to just sit back and watch. Jumping into action the rapper too released a song of his own. Drake dropped a song titled "Duppy Freestyle" in which he mentioned about Pusha's past drug dealings. Even though people had their share of entertainment from it, things went a little out of hand when Drake mentioned Pusha's fiancée by name. One could say that was the last straw for Pusha because this time when he dropped his beats he was not going to hold back in bringing out his big guns.
Undoubtedly, he came out with yet another diss track and this time it was titled "The Story of Adidon". One could say that the bar was set a little higher for Drake this time because Pusha sure did bring a lot to the table. The rapper dug out the life of Drake for all to hear.
To begin with, Pusha went after the rapper by talking about his parents, their failed marriage and the impact that might have had on Drake's life. It might have been a sensitive cord but Pusha did not mind breaking it and the rapper felt no guilt in doing so. In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Pusha confessed that he knew exactly what he was doing and felt no remorse while doing so because Drake had chosen to go personal by mentioning his fiancée's name.
"That alone causes all bets to be off," he said in the interview. At the same time, the song also spoke about Drake's own views on being identified as a black man. "Confused, always felt you weren't Black enough/Afraid to grow it 'cause your 'fro wouldn't nap enough," he raps in his diss track. While their feud is not a secret, there was one story in the lot which sent the world into shock and it was about Drake's alleged son with a woman named Sophie Brussaux. Pusha even mentioned her Instagram account handle in the song. Things are getting to be quite messy now.
"You are hiding a child, let that boy come home/Deadbeat mothaf**ka, playin' border patrol/Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real Love that baby, respect that girl, forget she's a porn star, let her be your world," he raps. Drake and Sophia were spotted together back in 2017 and things became heated between the couple when TMZ reported that Sophia received a text from Drake where he asked her to have an abortion.
According to Vulture, Sophia gave birth to a son on October 24, 2017. Even though Drake has never admitted to having a baby, the song holds on to this fact on a pedestal. In fact, the entire name of the song is also related to his son. "Allegedly his new line [with] Adidas is called 'Adidon' which is named after Adonis, his son," Pusha said in the interview. "We couldn't know about your child until you started selling sweatsuits and sneakers?" Pusha believes that Drake's son needs a lot more attention than just a brand of shoes and sneakers named after him.
Meanwhile, there is another thing that holds a lot of importance and it is the cover art of the song. The photo shows Drake in blackface, taken by photographer David Leyes. While David himself has taken down the photo and advised Pusha's manager to take it down as well, the rapper still keeps the picture on his Twitter account.
In a tweet featuring the photo, Pusha wrote, " Please stop referring to this picture as 'artwork' ... I'm not an internet baby, I don't edit images ... this is a REAL picture ... these are his truths, see for yourself." As of now, Drake has not responded to the diss track but we know that his next song can either make or break his relationship with Pusha and his fans are waiting to see what their legend might have in store for Pusha.
