The beef between the two rappers has reached new heights
The New York rapper recently called out Drake on his track ‘Infrared’ for his use of ghostwriter Quentin Miller, and comparing Drake’s success to Trump’s presidency. Pusha rapped, “The lyric penning equal the Trumps winning/The bigger question is how the Russians did it/It was written like Nas, but it came from Quentin.”
‘Infrared’ appears on Pusha T’s ‘Daytona‘, released last week. Drake later released a reponse track, titled ‘Duppy Freestyle’. “So if you rebuke me for working with someone else on a couple of Vs/What do you really think of the n***a that’s making your beats?” and “Must have had your infrared wrong, now your head in the beam,” Drake rapped.
Now the beef between the two stars has gained even more momentum with the release of ‘The Story of Adidon’. In the song, Pusha T alleges that Drake has a secret child. It harks back to rumours that the Canadian star fathered a baby he does not acknowledge publicly.
“Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother, cleaned her up for IG but the stench is on her,” Pusha T raps on the track, mentioning the alleged mother Sophie B – real name Sophie Brussax.
“You are hiding a child,” Pusha T continues. “Love that baby, respect that girl, forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world.” You can listen to ‘The Story of Adidon’ here.
The artwork features an image of Drake in black-face which Pusha T has strongly argued is a real photo. “Please stop referring to this picture as “artwork”…I’m not an internet baby, I don’t edit images…this is a REAL picture…these are his truths, see for yourself,” he posted on Twitter, linking to a gallery by photographer David Leyes. See that tweet below.
Pusha T previously spoke of the beef with Drake, saying he is “ready for everything that comes with it”.
Speaking to Vulture, Pusha said he wrote ‘Infrared’ in response to Drake “question[ing his] authority on the streets” in ‘Two Birds, One Stone’. “If you’re gonna question me, now I have to question authenticity, and what I feel it is that you claim,” he said. “You claim a lot of music superiority. You run the charts, for sure. But I have to question the authenticity of it when you get into the idea of skill set and what you do, off of what I’ve heard publicly.”
