What Is Rapper Pusha T’s Net Worth?
Pusha T is no stranger to controversy. From combative drug dealing to his epic feud with Drake, this rapper knows how to handle a fight. But just because he’s familiar with hostility, doesn’t mean that he isn’t successful.
Pusha T makes up for all that negativity with a gigantic bank account. Here’s what we know about Pusha T and his enormous net worth.
Pusha T used to be a drug dealer
Before he made it big in the music industry, Pusha T was just a kid on the streets. To make money, he sold drugs out of his parent’s home, but that didn’t end well. One day, a drug deal turned into violence and brought his parent’s wrath down upon him. He explained how it all went down to Hip Hop DX in 2013.
“One time, somebody had owed me some money,” Pusha T said. “We got into a scuffle–me and the person got into a scuffle. Me and a couple guys got into a scuffle. And the guy came back and shot in front of my parent’s home.”
But violence wasn’t the worst part of the whole situation according to the rapper. The worst part was his parent’s reaction and the guilt that followed. “My mother wasn’t home,” he said, “so when she came home and she hears about all this, she’s like, ‘What you mean somebody owes you money?’ It was very disappointing…My dad, he was blown away, and it was one of those things where I could never make them feel that way again.”
The situation led to Pusha T getting kicked out of his parent’s house. However, he didn’t let it keep him down for long. Soon after, he and his brother formed a rap group, called Clipse, which was the beginning of Pusha T’s music career.
Pusha T’s feud with Drake
Throughout his career, Pusha T has been involved in multiple feuds with other rappers. One of his favorite hobbies seems to be throwing out diss tracks about other artists. But the biggest and most well-known fight was between him and Drake.
For years, Pusha T and Drake went back and forth, insulting each other in their lyrics. But the issue escalated when Pusha T exposed Drake’s previously unknown child in his song, The Story of Adidon.
Drake had a son with porn star Sophie Brussaux in 2017, whom they named Adonis. However, he hid the news from the world until the heat from Pusha T’s song, along with other sources, forced him to admit the truth.
Although he eventually admitted the truth, Drake won’t forgive Pusha T for releasing the news to the world. During an interview with Rap Radar, Drake was asked about the feud and whether they could ever work things out. “I have no desire to mend anything with that person,” he said. “That situation just went where it went and there is no turning back.”
What is Pusha T’s net worth?
Fans usually don’t like it when an artist disses their favorite rapper, but all the controversy has brought Pusha T a lot of media attention.
Perhaps all his record sales are not actually in spite of his insults, but actually, because he’s willing to insult so many other artists. There’s no doubt that exposing Drake’s child brought Pusha T a lot of attention.
We may disagree with the methods, but with such large net worth, Pusha T is definitely doing something right.
