#MCM ; Music Crush Monday

To a casual fan this beef came out of nowhere, however if you are a student of hip hop like myself. You will know this beef started way before Drake even joined Young Money, he just became a casualty of war because his boss didn’t want any smoke. 

This diss was sent to anyone at Young Money who had anything to say. The beef started from a cover of Vibe .
Anyway, Pusha has feuded with Lil Wayne since 2002, but the first public diss came on the track “Mr. Me Too.” At the time, Pusha was still performing with Clipse, a group composed of himself and his brother No Malice. 

The duo were wearing alots  BAPE clothing at the time and when Wayne dressed in BAPE attire on the front cover of Vibe magazine they claimed the rapper copied their style. On “Mr. Me Too,” featuring Pharell, they rapped: ”Wanna know the time? Better clock us / N****s bite the style from the shoes to the watches.Wayne responded during an interview with Complex later that year, telling the publication: “You talking to the best. Talk to me like you’re talking to the best. I don’t see no fuckin’ Clipse. Come on man.”

So when Drake joined Young Money , he became a casualty of war. Pusha released a song entitled, "Don't Fuck With Me" , a song that sampled Drakes "Dreams Money Can Buy". Where he raps "Rappers on their sophomores / Actin’ like they boss lords / Fame such a funny thing for sure / When n****s start believing all them encores,“ Pusha rapped, alluding to Drake, who released his second album, Take Care, later that year,

In 2012, to make sure he was clear Pusha took shots  on “Exodus 23:1”. Discussing Drake and Lil Wayne's difficult contract with Cash Money. Lil Wayne replied via Twitter

The following year after Pusha T took another shot at Wayne on the track “Your Favourite Rapper”. So on Drake’s album Nothing Was The Same, Drake decided to stand up for himself and his mentor, rapping “Bench players talkin’ like starters / I hate it” on the track “Tuscan Leather” . Drake also rapped: “I’m just as famous as my mentor / But that’s still the boss, don’t get sent for / Get hype on tracks and jump in front of a bullet you wasn’t meant for.”

In 2014 , when Lil Wayne complained about his label issues (which Tyga did first) . Pusha T found it the right time to poke fun , stating that he told no lies in his 2012 diss.

In 2016, Pusha came with “H.G.T.V”, featuring the hardest hitting verses from Pusha at that time. He references Drake’s first mixtape , So Far Gone, and questioning his reported use of ghostwriters a topic that has been widely mentioned by those who take issue with Drake. Pusha rapped: “It’s too far gone when the realest ain’t real / I walk amongst the clouds so your ceilings ain’t real / These n***as Call of Duty ‘cause their killings ain’t real / With a questionable pen so the feelin’ ain’t real.
With Drakes 2017 , “Two Birds , One Stone”. He basically insinuates that Pusha didn’t sell as many drugs as he claims , information he got from a No Malice interview.

So now we are here today , Daytona releases May 25, 2018. On the album he pokes at Drake about his ghostwriting again and unfortunately Drake takes the bait. Coming off from a beef with Meek , I believe he was very cocky with his response on “Duppy Freestyle”. However, when you are going against your opponent you should evaluate whether they give a fuck less than you. 

On “Duppy Freestyle”, you could tell Drake didn’t have much to say about Pusha because most of the song was dissing Kanye. But one line cost him a lot, when he name drops his fiancé Virginia Williams.

I’ve been following her for years on Instagram and just by the way she posts stuff, you can tell she’s not in it for the fame. She doesn’t even post videos with her voice in them, so at that point the gloves came off.. Exactly six years after his “Exodus 23:1” video release, he dropped “The Story of Adidon”.

Pusha was very calculated from the cover of the diss to the date it was released. He exposed Drakes new Adidas roll out where he was going to introduce the world to his son. Drake became flustered after this, getting the cover art removed from sites. He even posts an explanation for the black face.

Funny how the tables turn, Drake has never explained himself to anyone. Even though his fans won’t admit it this diss is getting to him. He hasn’t said anything outside of the IOS note press release and stories have leaked about him actually being a good father . 
I’ll admit he didn’t have to expose his son to the public , but when you hear lyrics like “..I only love my bed and my momma I’m sorry”. You start to look at him a lot differently . As of today , J Prince has released a statement that Drake will not respond because Pusha got way too disrespectful. Where was all this energy when he was dragging Meek by his damn DreamChaser chain and bullying him with memes. He even poked fun at Cudi when he was admitted into a mental health facility . 

I think that camp knows that Pusha T had more up his sleeve , which would be easy because not many people in the industry even like Drake. So I’m sure there are people that can’t wait to release his secrets. So yes Pusha T won , but I would have loved to hear a response . I’m a fan of both and just love hip hop in general.. However, I did want to break it down , because a lot of people don’t even know where the beef started. You Instagram babies should understand that Google is your friend .

And to those Drake fans who said that Pusha was irrelevant and broke , do your Googles . I’m sure he’s still spending McDonalds money..
