Pusha T’s beef with Drake may be in the past, but the Diet Coke rapper never once felt threatned by the Certified Lover Boy.
While speaking with Wallo and Gillie Da Kid on Their Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast on Monday (February 21), King Push spoke about his Drake diss track “The Story Of Adidon” and the public reception of it.
“I didn’t know how it was going to react,” he explained. “All it was I knew I was speaking my truth and I knew I was speaking the truth… And I feel like the truth hurts. I don’t care what is going on, I feel like the truth definitely hurts.”
Push says Drake has the status of a pop artist and was surprised by the attention the track received. He also acknowledges it worked out in his favor because he had just released DAYTONA.
“When you dealing with him, you’re dealing on a pop level or dealing on TMZ levels,” he continued. “I was like, ‘Damn, that’s a lot of attention. And it couldn’t have happened at a better time. My album out and I got the album of the year.”
Despite the public handing him the W in his beef with Drake, Pusha wasn’t impressed with the victory because he does not consider the Toronto rapper a formidable opponent.
“On an artist level, I didn’t look at it so crazy because it wasn’t like I just beat The LOX in a rap battle or I just beat Hov in a rap battle or some sh*t,” Push added.
During the height of their beef, Drake released Duppy Freestyle and reportedly had a career ending response to Pusha T’s The Story Of Adidon.
“The ingredients was overwhelming,” said J Prince in a 2018 interview with Sway Calloway. “I know for a fact that it would have been bad for Kanye and [Pusha]. It just wouldn’t have been good. It’s beyond music at that point. It’s gonna effect the livelihood, it’s gonna interfere with his whole lifestyle from that day forward.”
