Pusha T Explains His Latest Drake Diss Track
Amid of his new album, which is supposed to drop in June, Drake will have to answer some suspicious questions before it’s release. This week, Pusha T responded to Drake’s “Duppy” diss track with one of his own. The track was is titled, “The Story of Adidon,” and was released via Soundcloud. In the song, Pusha references to Drake’s lovechild by a pornstar, Drake’s producer, 40, being sick, and he also took shots at Dennis Graham – Drake’s father.
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home
Deadbeat mothafucka 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
Pusha followed up with The Breakfast Club Wednesday morning to answer listener’s burning questions. In his phone interview, he explained his claims of Drake being a deadbeat father on his, questioned why Drake would be wearing blackface, and how bringing his fiancee Virginia Williams into the situation was a bad idea. Peep the excerpts below.
If he woke up feeling bad this morning:
No. For what?
All bets are off because of that. That alone causes all bets to be off.
Where he got the Drake artwork from:
The picture came from a site, from this photographer. I want to say his name is David Leyes. I guess Drake took those pictures a little while ago. They said it was his idea; something he wanted to do.
He defends his rhymes:
I’m prepared for everything. I need a few answers. I really need to understand what makes you take a picture like that. What’s the problem? Even the baby thing was a little crazy. Who rolls out their child with a sweatsuit? Like, get out of here, what are you doing?
Clarifying his statements on Drake having a secret baby:
His new line with Adidas is allegedly called Adidon, which is named after Adonis, his son. We couldn’t know about your child until you started selling sweat suits and sneakers?
His response to saying 40 was sick, and Wednesday being World Multiple Sclerosis Day:
Oh, man. That’s ironic. Listen man, I’m just here for the sport of it. But when it gets personal, it gets personal.
If he felt like he went too far:
No, not at all. I definitely didn’t go to far with anything. I’m not censoring myself, its just more content needed for later.
If he’s scared of what could happen next:
I ain’t got no skeletons. I’m not going to bully the situation because I feel like its bigger questions now, though, and they don’t have to be answered to me. They’re questions he has to answer, and that’s real.
He further explains:
We talk about the ghostwriting allegations, we off that. Now we get to the mimicking of the black culture. I’m not ready to excuse you talking multi-millionaire talk, and you tucking a baby. I don’t even hang out with my friends who got child support issues.
Rehashes Drake doing Blackface:
This isn’t so long ago. Did you not just start recognizing your blackness? How could you have not have felt some type of way by doing that photo shoot? It’s deep. I need to know.
Reflects on mentioning Quentin’s name in “Infrared”:
He [Quentin] is extremely talented. That is the one regret I do have about Infrared. He is really trying to get past this whole narrative. You know he is really trying to get his career on, and move on. I feel like I sort of, pulled him back in it. It wasn’t nothing major, still, I know he wants to get past it. It bothered me because I spoke to him after the fact.
Drake has yet to respond.
