Drake Is Still Beefing with Pusha T and Kanye West
Two years ago, Drake and Pusha T engaged in one of the most outrageous rap battles in recent rap history. For most people, two years is a long time. More than enough time to get over any petty beef. But for Aubrey Graham, grudges last a lifetime.
Will Drake ever forgive Pusha T?
At first, the feud between the rappers seemed innocent enough, but in Pusha T’s track, “The Story of Adidon,” the rapper revealed that Drake had a son that no one knew about.
For the Canadian star, this crossed the line.
“I have no desire to ever mend anything with that person,” Drake said on the Rap Radar podcast. “That situation just went where it went. There’s no turning back.”
Though he will never forgive what Pusha T did, he does recognize that it was a smart move.
“I’ll say this — I tip my hat to the chess move,” Drake said. “It was a genius play in the game of chess and definitely warranted my first ‘loss’ in the competitive sport of rapping. [It was] by choice, obviously, because I bowed out after realizing that the gap between us allowed him to drop a bomb on the world that became all anyone cared about.”
“He told the world that the biggest artist at the time has a kid that he hasn’t told you about,” he continued. “I know, for me, it was over at that point. It wasn’t about battle rap at that point — the information was too shocking. I realize that nobody really cares about this guy, so there’s nothing else I can really say that’s bigger than Drake has a baby. He won off of that bomb.”
Why is Drake mad at Kanye West?
If you’ve been keeping up with Drake, you might have noticed in recent years that the rapper hasn’t seemed that fond of Kanye West, either. Well, his issue with West also goes back to the Pusha T drama. When Pusha dropped his diss track, he and West were working together, which made Drake think that West was the one that leaked the info about his son.
“I think that he definitely recruited a guy with a similar dislike for me,” Drake said of Pusha. “No matter what he says in interviews, I know that. He can tell whoever, ‘Oh, I got love for [Drake],’ but it’s not love. There’s something there that bothers him deeply. I can’t fix that for him. It just is what it is. I can never, ever, ever, ever turn my back on the things that I’ve said about him in a positive light, and I still feel all of those things. I would still say that Kanye West is my favorite artist all around. I have no problem saying that. But things have just changed — I’m not just a kid who’s a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations. A lot of his issues with me…I can’t fix them for him.”
