It seems that Pusha T is not going to hear Drake out. Just after the used a photo of Drake in blackface as the cover for his diss track The Story of Adidon, Drake offered people an explanation for the controversial photo.
‘This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and typecast,’ Drake posted a while ago on his social media account.
‘The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment,’ he continued.
‘This was to highlight and raise our frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for black actors had not changed much,’ Drake added.
But it looks like Pusha, who has been feuding with Drake since last month, doesn’t buy what he’s saying.
‘See, I don’t know. I just know that me being a black man, that’s something I’m totally against,’ Pusha T told GQ. ‘I’m just like, ‘How could you be that comfortable, ever?’ Just for me, there’s no way that’s ever comfortable.’
When he was reminded that Drake said it the whole thing was to highlight the struggle for black actors to get roles, Pusha responded, ‘That’s not an explanation that I would accept.’
What do you think? Is Drake’s explanation good enough for you?
