(AllHipHop News) While Pusha T was at the forefront of the recent back-and-forth with Drake, his G.O.O.D. Music comrade took most of the blows on Drake's "Duppy Freestyle." The OVO star's Scorpion album is said to contain even more subliminal shots at Ye.
Confessed Drake fan Joe Budden took a deep dive into those lyrics supposedly directed at Kanye. The latest episode of the "retired" emcee's podcast spent over 40 minutes reviewing Scorpion, and a large portion of the segment was focused on Drizzy versus Yeezy.
Budden decoded bars from “8 Out of 10” and “Emotionless." The outspoken podcaster also stated he believes Pusha's "The Story Of Adidon" diss track caused Drake to change the direction of the Scorpion LP.
One theory presented by Budden is that Drake told Kanye about his new music as well as his personal business. Then Kanye allegedly used that info in an attempt to bring down his Toronto-bred frenemy.
"I think that Drake was somewhere with Kanye. I think that they were talking about stuff as they were working. I think that Drake probably let Kanye hear a good amount of what he was working on because that's what artists do," offered Joe. "I think that while his June [release] date was announced - Drake, because he never said June what - he always just said June."
Budden continued, "I think [Drake] then left Kanye, and when he went back to Kanye there was a whole bunch of people around - a room full of rappers. I think that when he went back to Kanye, Kanye then got his June rollout plan popping. I think that everything that Kanye has done in the past month with that bullsh-t was totally centered around whatever information he got from Drake before he departed."
West announced the release date for his eighth studio album - as well as projects by Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor - on April 19. Three days prior, Drake revealed Scorpion was landing in June.
