Pusha T Says It’s “Not A Personal Beef” With Lil Wayne Or Drake But Admits He’s Dissed Them
When Pusha T laced his verse for Alley Boy’s “Your Favorite Rapper,” he sent some shots at the Young Money camp. Specifically, he seemed to be speaking about Lil Wayne’s record. “How real is he if he been paying for his blood ties,” Pusha asks on the song, before delivering his punchline. “He blood in, he blood out…at a blood drive.” Recently, Pusha spoke about this verse and his songs “Exodus” and “New God Flow” and how they play into a feud with the Young Money camp.
“It’s one of my favorite verses,” Pusha said of his Alley Boy collaboration. “Yeah, yeah. It was [a shot at Lil Wayne]…It’s always in response, man. You know? I put out a record. He puts out a record. Like I said, it’s not about diss records to me. It’s about making good music. I feel like anything I’ve put out thus far in regards to anything that has to do with me having an issue or so on and so forth, has been an immaculate record. I can’t say that for everybody else. Everybody else who may have thrown a shot here or thrown a shot there at me, I can’t say their record was awesome. I think that I was shaking souls with ‘Exodus.’ I think I was shaking souls with ‘New God Flow.’ I think that Alley Boy verse, ‘Your Favorite Rapper,’ is one of the best verses ever. I know things like that scare people. I know that when I say things like that, I know that hurts. Those are good lines. Those are lines that are great. That’s what I look to give the fans.”
However, he also acknowledged that he has no “personal beef” with anybody at YMCMB.
“It’s not a personal beef. I don’t personally know any of them. These guys have made great music in their day. These guys have fans, tons of fans, so I can’t really let anybody with that many fans and that type of visibility and that type of history, I can’t just let them make statements against me and be quiet about it. That can be viewed as victory.”
