Fans in the hip-hop community watched in horror over this summer when Pusha-T released his devastating diss-track regarding Drake, where he accused the Toronto-native of a number of different consequential faux-pas. Moreover, his track, “The Story Of Adidon,” featured one of the most humiliating cover-art photos ever to be released.
While some would assume that the song would have a devastating impact on his career, it just didn’t. Drake released Scorpio over the summer and it dominated the Billboard 200 for months.
In fact, it was streamed over a billion times in the span of a few weeks. During his latest talk with LeBron James and Maverick Carter, the Toronto-rapper dished on his feuds with Kanye West and Pusha-T, both men he went toe-to-toe with over the summer months.
According to Drake, Pusha’s track, “The Story Of Adidon,” was “a h*ll of a chess move,” but he believes it went too far for a couple of reasons. Drake said during the conversation that “rap purists” love the confrontation, arguing frequently there aren’t any rules on the hip-hop battleground.
But to Drake, there are definitely rules. The self-proclaimed Six-God added that he knew someone, eventually, would talk about his kid, insinuating that he was a dead-beat dad.
And as far as his family life goes, “you don’t even know my family,” the rapper responded. According to Drake, all of that was well and fine until they insulted his dead friend, Noah “40” Shebib, who passed away due to MS.
Drake stated that he thought about taking it to the next level but ultimately determined that giving other rappers the street credit, and the promotion, would do more good than harm.
Additionally, Drake admitted he harbors a bit of resentment due to Kanye using their song, on which they collaborated, “Lift Yourself,” as his stand-alone track.
