Pusha T On Drake Diss: It Wasn’t Like I Beat Hov’ In A Rap Battle

Appearing on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Pusha-T explained the infamous Drake diss record ‘The Story of Adidon.’

Back in 2018, after Drake dropped his ‘Duppy Freestyle’ aimed at Pusha-T, the Virginia native answered back with a headline making diss record of his own. Rapped over No I.D.’s beat for JAY-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” with artwork taken from a photoshoot of Drake in blackface, Pusha-T did not hold back. Pusha revealing that Drake was hiding a son by a former adult star, was enough for him to claim victory. “On an artist level, I didn’t look at it so crazy ’cause it wasn’t like I just beat the LOX in a rap battle or I beat Hov’ in a rap battle or some sh-t,” he said.

Regardless, the industry was in shock. According to Pusha-T, he did not tell many about his ‘The Story of Adidon’ diss record. “When it’s wartime, people gotta be all in,” Push explained. “I’m not going to speak to anybody who isn’t all in when it’s wartime.”

“We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home
Deadbeat mothaf–ka playin’ border patrol, ooh
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 pornstar, let her be your world, yuugh!,” Pusha-T on ‘The Story of Adidon’

“I didn’t know how it was going to react,” he explained. “All it was 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’s going on, I feel like the truth definitely hurts. I didn’t look at it anyway like, to be on some popularity level or like — when you’re dealing with him, you dealing like on a pop level. You dealin’ with TMZ levels. It was like a lot of attention.”

Also in the interview, Pusha-T explained why he publicly shared his contract on Instagram. “What that was was basically Kanye forfeiting all of his profits from my whole catalog — back catalog to now — to me,” Push explained. “A lot of people say they’re your brother but like, for him to show you — show me — that we are brothers to do something like that. That was major.”
