Pusha T and Young Thug traded words over Pusha T’s diss at Drake on Pop Smoke’s unreleased song.
The drama started after one of the songs from Pop Smoke forthcoming Deluxe album was leaked and it was the verse from Pusha T.
The song titled “paranoia” features Pusha T, Young Thug, and Gunna.
In the verse, he raps,
“You know reality bites/It’s chess not checkers/Those empty threats only sound good on your records/If the patois is not followed by blocka/It’s like marked for death Screwface, without the choppa/Let ’em rush the stage when you made like Sinatra.”
Young Thug later came out to address Pusha T’s alleged diss at Drake, he wrote,
“I don’t respect the Pusha T verse on the song with me and Gunna cause I don’t have nun to do with y’all beef nor does Gunna, and if I knew that was about him [Drake] I would’ve made changes on our behalf.. this rapper shit so gay.”
Pusha T responding to Young Thug wrote back,
“Aye @youngthug couple things: 1. Don’t feel bad, nobody knew what the verse was about. The label heads that stopped it didn’t even know.
“They only assume because he told them! The same way he told about the Ross “Mayback 6″ verse. And if he’ll tell record executive [about] rap verses, God only knows what else he’ll tell! I don’t deal with police work. Police rappers or Police Niggas.”
“2. @youngthug, you were the last verse added to the song that’s only because you requested it.
“3. And most important @young thug, just so we are clear…I would never look or need your respect for what it is I bring to this rap game.”
He also demanded that Steven Victor, the manager to Late Pop Smoke remove his verse on the song so as to avoid confusion.
“@stevenvictor I demand you take me off the deluxe @realpopsmoke album to avoid any confusion that may take away from this amazing body of work.”
Recall, that in 2018, Pusha T had fired shots at Drake in his song, Infrared” and Drake responded back with “Duppy Freestyle”.
Pusha T responded back with “Story of Adidon” where he revealed the explosive news that Drake was a father to a boy called “Adonis”.
