Pusha T is the president of G.O.O.D Music and remains one of the industry’s most in-demand rappers. Pusha T is slated to collaborate with Jay-Z on a new album. Pusha T just made an announcement that may surprise fans. Pusha T revealed Drake’s secret and explained Kanye West’s contract post to the supporters.
The season of King Push has arrived. The publication of “Diet Coke,” as well as his recent press tour, are both strong indicators that the formal follow-up to Daytona is on the way. Much has happened in Pusha’s world in the four years following the album’s release. Kanye West and Drake squashed their beef in December when they performed together at the Free Larry Hoover concert. Pusha T then revealed what looked to be a contract that relieved him of his artistic responsibilities at G.O.O.D Music.
Pusha T claimed that the contract he released had nothing to do with his departure from G.O.O.D Music during a recent appearance on Million Dollaz Worth Of Game. He said Kanye gave up his cut of the income from Pusha’s repertoire, allowing the Virginia rapper complete control over his previous and future releases.
“What that was was basically Kanye forfeiting all of his profits from my whole catalog — back catalog to now — to me. A lot of people say they’re your brother but like, for him to show you — show me — that we are brothers to do something like that. That was major.”
Pusha T also addressed the bombshell he delivered with the release of “The Story Of Adidon” elsewhere in the conversation. Push explained that his label had no objections to the freestyle being released, owing to the fact that he didn’t bother to inform anyone about it.
The song itself was chock-full of surprises, including Drake’s yet-to-be-named offspring, as well as cover art depicting the Canadian rapper in blackface. Pusha T went on to say that he wasn’t sure how to diss track would perform in front of a crowd. Push claimed he was dealing with someone on a “pop level” because Drake is the most commercially successful musician.
“I didn’t know how it was going to react. All it was was I knew I was speaking my truth and I knew I was speaking the truth… And I feel like the truth hurts. I don’t care what’s going on, I feel like the truth definitely hurts. I didn’t look at it anyway like, to be on some popularity level or like — when you’re dealing with him, you dealing like on a pop level. You dealin’ with TMZ levels. It was like a lot of attention.”
It worked out beautifully for Pusha T, who had just released Daytona and Drake dropped “Duppy Freestyle” less than 24 hours later.
“On an artist level, I didn’t look at it so crazy ’cause it wasn’t like I just beat the LOX in a rap battle or I beat Hov’ in a rap battle or some shit,”
Pusha T also discussed some of the new rappers he’s been listening to recently. EST Gee, Babyface Ray, 42 Dugg, Lil Baby, Summer Walker, and Fat Money are among them, with the latest part in the Cinco De Money series being his favorite mixtape right now. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
