So for those of you who don’t know, Pusha T & Drake have been beefing with each other ever since Pusha T dropped Exodus 23:1 back in 2013.
It’s a really dope track. I love the dark production, and the guest vocals from The-Dream are great. Lil Wayne actually responded with a really shitty diss track called Goulish.
Fuck Pusha T & anybody that love ’em
His head up his ass; I’ma have to head-butt him
Smh… Drake didn’t end up responding until 2016’s Two Birds, One Stone. It’s a decent song I guess. Just kinda boring. It’s one long verse over a decent beat. His flow is super uninteresting. It’s bland. The beef didn’t really go anywhere until Pusha revived it with Infrared, which appears on his new album, DAYTONA.
It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin
To my surprise, Drake actually dropped a response on the same day, just like Horseshoe G.A.N.G. did when battling Funk Volume. It’s called “Duppy Freestlye.” I’m not sure what the hell “Duppy” means. Is it another regional slang term like “blem?” I don’t know. I’m gonna check it out now though. It’s produced by Boi-1da & Jahaan Sweet.
Okay, this beat is fire. I love the horns; it sounds really dramatic. Damn. Okay, I just listened to the entire song. There was a lot in there. This nigga actually knows how to make a good diss. It took him long enough, but yeah. That shit was dope.
I really shouldn’t have given you none of my time
‘Cause you older than the nigga you runnin’ behind
It was nice to hear Drake actually rapping with some energy. He wasn’t using the same lazy flow that’s on his new I’m Upset track. If I had to choose one over the other I’d probably go with Infrared, but that’s coming from a huge Pusha T fan. I’ve been “hating” on Drake since 2012. The Duppy Freestyle is good though. The ball is in Pusha’s court.
Hopefully he responds with an actual song. I’m starting to feel like that’d be too good to be true, but I’m gonna remain hopeful. If he doesn’t respond, that’s kind of an L on his part. I’d say they’re tied though. Exodus 23:1 is still the best song to come out of this beef.
Watch the video below for more thoughts on this beef
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SHIT IS REAL IN THESE STREETS. WE GOT A REAL BEEF. THIS IS NOT A DRILL; PUSHA T HAS RESPONDED TO THE DUPPY FREESTYLE. I haven’t heard it yet, but Twitter is blowing up right now. The song is a remix of The Story of OJ. It’s called “The Story of Adidon.” I don’t know who the fuck Adidon is, but I guess I’m about to find out.
OH SHIT. THIS NIGGA WENT IN ON HIS DAD FOR LEAVING WHEN HE WAS FIVE. WAIT A MINUTE… WHAAAAAT…??????
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home
Deadbeat mothafucka playin’ border patrol, ooh
Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run; that’s real
Love that baby, respect that girl
Forget she’s a pornstar, let her be your world
GODDAMN. LMAOOOO. Okay, sorry. I just listened to the whole song. Goddamn. That motherfucker wasn’t playing. I love the way he ended it too.
And you talkin’, you upset
Well I wanna see what it’s like when you get angry, okay?
You show me that
There’s a lot to unpack here. Push said a lotta things. First of all, we gotta talk about the song art. Drake… My man… What the fuck was you doin’ in that picture?
My mans deadass caught himself on camera in blackface. Not a good look for mixed niggas. Pusha T wins just by highlighting that picture. And good lord. The bars. The disrespect. My nigga wasn’t playing. Man… I love Twitter right now. EVERYONE is talking about this shit.
I know I’m probably coming off as a Push stan right now, but goddamn. He really wasn’t fuckin’ around. This nigga went super saiyan on Drake. I can’t wait to see how he responds to this shit. I’m so glad Pusha T actually responded. I’m not gonna lie; I was kinda nervous that he wouldn’t say shit. You never really know these days. Pusha T is a rapper’s rapper though. I should’ve known he was gonna come through like this. It would’ve been even better if it was over original production, but I’ll take what I can get. I didn’t even mention the most disrespectful line in the song though…
OVO 40, hunched over like he 80, tick, tick, tick
How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick
I got the devil flow, nigga, six, six, six
Surgical summer with it, snip, snip, snip
Apparently 40 has multiple sclerosis. This nigga was really hitting below the belt lmaooo. RUTHLESS. Lemme know what y’all think in the comments.
