(AllHipHop News) After all the excitement over the Meek Mill versus Drake situation, it seems rap fans are thirsty for more back-and-forth action among performers. So much so, listeners were quick to speculate that the new Hit-Boy song “Bussin’ Moves” may have been a subliminal diss to Drake just because of the two artists that appear on the track.
“Bussin’ Moves” features longtime Drake rival Pusha T and reported Drake ghostwriter Quentin Miller. The fact the two spitters were on the same record led to suggestions it was a way for King Push to send another shot at Drizzy (he famously called out Drake and Lil Wayne on “Exodus 23:1”).
However, Hit-Boy confirmed with Genius that there was no foul play involved in the combination of Pusha and Miller. The producer of platinum songs such as “Drop The World” and “N*ggas in Paris” explained Push’s bars were originally supposed to be for a cut on the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer.
This Pusha verse is actually from the original “Clique,” by Jay Z, Kanye and Big Sean that I produced. It was supposed to be on “Clique,” so this verse is three-years-old, but it’s f*cking ridiculous, flawless bars. Jus the flow and the way he’s in the pocket and the attitude about it. I threw the Pusha verse on that motherf*cka, then wrote the hook to it and then I did my verse. I felt like “Bussin’ Moves” was just a concept that made sense for how Pusha set it off.
Hit-Boy also addressed Quentin Miller’s placement on the song:
I’ve known Quentin since 2011, that’s been my homie since then, we’ve always communicated. We’ve been making records for basically this whole year. Way before the Drake sh*t, we were already connecting. We had already made a bunch of records with his WDNG CRSHRS group and I had made some solo stuff for him and we just been building.
He recorded this a couple of months ago, he probably did it end of June or mid-June. He recorded it for sure before the whole Drake thing.
