Pusha T Weighs In On Kanye West’s Antisemitic Comments: There Is No Room For Bigotry Or Hate Speech

Pusha T Weighs In On Kanye West’s Antisemitic Comments: There Is No Room For Bigotry Or Hate Speech

Pusha T is the latest friend of Kanye West to speak out against his controversial remarks.

If you hadn’t heard, recently, Kanye West made some derogatory comments about the Jewish community that caused quite the stir.

Because of his contentious views, Kanye West was subsequently banned from his social platforms and even lost a few of his most lucrative brand deals.

As you may know, following Hip-Hop heavy-hitter Diddy’s disapproval of his White Lives Matter t-shirt, Kanye West shared a text that he’d sent in response to Diddy, which seemingly blamed the Jews for music mogul trying to “threaten or influence” him.

Of course, the post sparked mayhem, but it didn’t end there.

He wrote:

“This ain’t a game

Imma use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me

I told you this was war

Now gone get you some business”

In addition to that, West let off a tweet about “going Death Con 3 on Jewish people.” The Yeezy founder said,

“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

The 45-year-old also continued his rant on a now-removed Drink Champs episode.

Pusha T, longtime president of West’s G.O.O.D Music overhead and collaborator, finally broke his silence on the lyricist/producer’s debatable opinions, and he made it clear that it was all about love… at the end of the day.

However, he didn’t hold back in expressing his disappointment in seeing the hoopla surrounding his business buddy’s words.

“It definitely affected me. To describe it, I’d say it’s been disappointing, very disappointing. You know, just as a Black man in America, there is no room for bigotry or hate speech. So yeah. It’s been very disappointing. Let’s talk straight.”

Pusha T continued, adding that although he may not be in agreement with everything West says/does, the bond with the Chicago-raised musician is one that he’ll always cherish, especially when it comes to the impact he has had on his artistry.

“Creatively, Ye has meant freedom to me. A lot of times, people would try to get me to change certain things about my process, change certain things about me lyrically, change certain things about the content. He never has been like that. He always saw me for who I was and knew how to take it to the next level.”

In April of this year, the Bronx-born rhymer released his fourth studio album, It’s Almost Dry, via G.O.O.D Music, which he’s been signed to since 2010. West appears on the celebrated project as well.
