Is Pusha T waiting for Drake's response to "The Story Of Adidon" like the rest of us? The answer is simple, "No. I'm not" he reveals. Pusha's bombshell diss record revealed claims that the Toronto rapper fathered a baby with former adult film actress, Sophie Brussaux. And that was just one of the many alarming allegations that Pusha T unleashed.
Why isn't Pusha T expecting Drake to come back at him? "What's to talk about? It's all true," says Pusha. According to him, the use of the word "alleged" in all of this is inaccurate. He said what he said on the track because it's the truth.
Pusha T sat down with Big Boy's Neighborhood at REAL 92.3 Los Angeles to break everything down, from Drake in blackface to the secret baby and what's coming next.
Pusha T Digs Deep Into Drake's Past
Did Pusha T already have his facts lined up and ready for "The Story Of Adidon?" In a way he did. He knew some things but it didn't come together until he started analyzing and unravelling the layers of Drake's life. Then it all made sense to him.
Loosely. When I heard the "Duppy Freestyle" I was like ok, now I have to analyze who this person is. And I gotta analyze, just questions, like why would you put her in it? My fiancé. The line was trash. It was a line about like "I'm going to make it ring on you like Virginia Williams." The line itself is trash. And to me I felt like wait a minute, what is the real issue with you and marriage? So then now I gotta dig deeper into who the person is. Now I gotta dig in and see what's your family like? Oh, your dad left you at five. Oh, I get that. He never walked you to the bus stop. You're mad about this. Your mom, she never remarried. You don't even know what family is, so of course you don't dig marriage. I get it. Ok, boom!
There Are No 'Alleged' Facts On "The Story Of Adidon"
Everything Pusha T said on his diss track is factual, according to the rapper. He seems to know a lot more than we do about what's been going on behind-the-scenes in the studio and in Drake's personal life.
Nah, it's real. It's real. Ghostwriting - ain't alleged. The reference tracks - ain't alleged. The baby - ain't alleged. It's not alleged. It's real. And my whole point with that is saying.. we can't even know about nothing about something that is so precious. We can't even know about the kid. But we can know about it with the alleged new Adidas deal. You can roll out that information with a sweatsuit and some sneakers.
The Information Came From "Great People"
We're all wondering, how does Pusha T know all of this information about Drake? He wasn't exactly willing to put his sources on blast but he makes a point to note that he's well informed.
Then you have people who are just great people out there. There are great people out there. I get the picture of - the photo that I used - of the blackface and I'm like ok, it makes sense! You parade your dad around. This was done in '08. You don't even know that that's not right. There's no explanation for that to me.
Pusha T Doesn't Buy Drake's Explanation For The Blackface Photos
Drake released a statement about the blackface photo attached to the diss track but Pusha T isn't exactly believing the explanation or the intent behind why the photo was taken in the first place.
Like you are silent in all black issues, Drake. You really are. You are really, really silent. I don't hear about anything. You don't stand for nothing. You don't say nothing about nothing. You don't. It's just what it is. And you have all the platform in the world. You were so passionate back then? No, you weren't. That's number one. That's what I know.
Pusha T also revealed that the photographer who took the photo of Drake reached out to his management personally to address the photo.
The person who took the photo... So the man takes the photo, right? When the photo goes up he reaches out to my management and says... he was so passionate. He says "hey, I don't know why you're trying to make fun of this. This was an awesome idea that Drake gave us. He gave us an awesome idea and I executed it perfectly. Thinking that he's bragging about, whatever. And I'm like "oh, this guy doesn't even know." But I get it. Again, I get it. You gotta think into who a person is to even do this.
Is The Battle Over?
There's no doubt in Pusha T's mind that he has the ammunition to keep the battle going. The battle between these two has just begun and won't end with a response from Drake.
I told you at the end of this joint. We're can take it slow. I'm just peeling back the first layer. This joint right here was 100% responding to those things. He said, you chasing around Kanye. I've been aligned with the greats my whole career.
