Pusha-T may have promised a “surgical summer,” but it looks like his feud with Drake is already over.
In an interview with Vanity Fair this week, the G.O.O.D. Music president declared their beef dead. “I mean, you know. These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over,” he told the magazine. “It’s all over with. I mean, listen: I’m ready to be back to the music for real. Just feeding my base, that’s it. That’s the most important thing to me at all times.”
When asked what was gained from the rivalry, he admits that he’s unsure. “I don’t even know. I don’t know what was lost or what was gained,” explained Push.
He also acknowledged Drake’s track record as a hitmaker, but maintains they’re in different lanes. “I feel like at the end the day, I know that I never want to make a Drake record,” he added. “I know that I never want to make a Kanye West record. Really, to be honest with you.”
Drake has reportedly recorded a response to Pusha-T’s “The Story Adidon,” but J Prince said he intervened and told him not to release it. “I saw it going in a place that I feel would have ended his career if Drake would have put out the song that he had on him,” the Rap-A-Lot Records CEO told “Sway in the Morning.” “And definitely would have hurt families. We not in it for that. That’s not Drake’s character. We not in business to tear our brother, fellow man down to that extent.”
Earlier this month, Kanye called for an end to the beef. “I’ve never been about beef,” he tweeted. “I’m about love lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now.”
During an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” Diddy declared Drake the loser in the rap battle. “He took the L,” said Puff. “I think that this is the most skillful artist that Drake has come up against and, you know, Drake likes the smoke, he loves the smoke.”
