(AllHipHop News) The closing song on Pusha T's new Daytona album includes references to Young Money/Cash Money representatives Baby/Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Drake. Push's feud with the YMCMB camp goes back years.
So why did the Clipse member bring the beef back up again in 2018? Hot 97's Ebro In The Morning show asked Pusha about the "Infrared" tune.
"I was actually speaking about how when we were going through that time, that issue - how everybody was like, 'Damn, Push. Why you saying this? Why you saying that? Why you doing that?' Then Ross recently had a situation where he spoke on it," stated King Push, referring to Rick Ross' song "Idols Become Rivals."
Pusha continued, "Just showing people, like damn, just a minute ago everybody was like, 'Yo, Push chill.' Then Ross did it, and it was like, 'Yeah, Ross. You're right about that.' Which he was."
The 41-year-old spitter also explained his lyrical takedown of Drake. "Infrared" featured bars about Drizzy using "ghostwriters" on some of his projects.
Previously, Pusha fired shots at Drake on "Exodus 23:1" in 2012. Four years later, the OVO leader responded on his own "Two Birds, One Stone" track.
"I feel like the Drake thing, more recently, was just about the ‘Two Birds, One Stone’ record. A lot of talk about the record, I guess, just speaking his truth, questioning my validity to the streets within that verse," Push told Hot 97. "It’s fine. That’s what it was. But if we’re gonna question things. It’s my turn to question.”
The G.O.O.D. Music head added, "In response to ‘Two Birds, One Stone,’ I feel like he was doing his rapper thing. It’s ‘Infrared’ time, so I’m gonna do my rapper thing."
In addition, Pusha T made an appearance on The Breakfast Club. That interview included him speaking further on his issues with Drake and Birdman.
"I seen Baby the other day in an elevator," revealed Pusha. "He was like, 'What's bracking?' I was like, 'Ain't nothing, wassup?' He was like, 'You good?' I was like, 'Yeah, I'm good.' He was like, 'You sure?' I said, 'I'm positive.' [I then] got off [on] floor 6."
