Pusha T is one of the most sought-after rappers in the hip-hop world. The Virginia-bred wordsmith has just about seen it all during his time in Hip Hop. This time he has something to say about diss tracks and rap beefs.
King Push appeared on Hot Ones with Sean Evans to discuss a multitude of topics about his career and chow down on some wings. Instead of directly asking Push about his famous 2018 feud with Drake, Evans shrewdly side-steps and questions how the rules of diss tracks and rap beef have changed in the last 20 years. Pusha T believes they’ve become corporate now with labels getting involved.
“It’s really corporate now,” he explained. “Now, you’ll have a rap beef and a record label gets involved and the CEO is like, ‘Oh, you can’t do this to my artist.’ I don’t think they end careers anymore because people don’t have the same pride level about the art.”
He went on to say that, “Back in the day, it was career-ending because it was based around the art. Nowadays, people don’t care. So many headlines and things going on, they just sweep it under the rug.” Push also detailed how he wants his career to be looked at like the Martin Scorsese of street rap, later in the interview.
On the other hand, there’s still no firm release date on Pusha T’s It’s Not Dry Yet album. However, fans can expect the anticipated project to arrive in quarter two of 2022. Looks like the rapper has a lot planned this time.
