"We can’t get in the pigpen with pigs."
It seems that Drake‘s long-running beef with Pusha T could finally be at an end, after Drake’s mentor encouraged him to put a stop to the vicious feud.
In recent weeks, the pair have exchanging verbal blows, with Pusha T accusing Drake of having a ghostwriter to pen his lyrics, as well as fathering an illegitimate child.
For his part, Drake has sent Pusha an actual invoice after claiming that he played a huge role in reviving the fortunes of the rapper’s career.
But it looks like an end to the complex feud could finally be in sight, after Drake’s mentor James ‘J’ Prince called into US radio station DTLR Radio to reveal that he had spoken to the rapper about his next step.
“I spoke with Drake” Prince admitted.
“I made an OG call this morning telling him: ‘I don’t want you to respond to this. We gonna put this to bed, because we can’t get in the pigpen with pigs.’
“Because pigs turn into hogs, and then hogs get slaughtered.”
Prince also maintained that Drake wasn’t known for embroiling himself in long running feuds.
“We haven’t worked this hard to cheat ourselves over nothing.”
While an end to the beef is all but confirmed, the most brutal moment came earlier this week – when a photo of Drake in blackface was used as the artwork for Pusha-T’s latest diss track ‘The Story of Adidon’, which saw him allege that Drake has a secret child.
Drake later responded to the release of the image, writing, “I know everyone is enjoying the circus but I want to clarify this image in question.”
He goes on to clarify that the photo was not ‘a clothing brand shoot’ or for his ‘music career’ but rather when he was an actor “working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type-cast”.
