The on-going feud between Pusha T and Drake continues through no fault of their own so says King Push.
The Camp Flog Gnaw Festival that took place at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on November 10th and 11th may have inadvertently reignited the long-standing hip-hop beef between King Push and Drake.
But first, a quick-recap.
As the beef flames began to fan out after the initial diss tracks were released over the summer, it began to stoke all over again when Drake joined LeBron James for an appearance on ‘The Shop,’ an HBO reality interview series that all goes down in the barber chair. In the interview, Drizzy shared his side of the feud between him, King Push, and Kanye West or is it OVO Sound vs. Good Music?
His belief was that, after confiding in Kanye during an album recording visit to Wyoming, it was Kanye who had spilled the beans regarding his secret child that was ultimately exposed to the world on the diss track ‘The Story Of Adidon’ via the CEO of Good Music record label Pusha T.
Five days later, Push joined Joe, Rory, and Mal on the Joe Budden Podcast to share his side of the story where jaws dropped upon hearing how the information was truly leaked. According to Push, in a pillow talk session between OVO founder and long-time friend of Drake, Noah Shebib, better known as “40”, he disclosed to an unidentified female the personal information Drake had been feeding him. Pusha T then obtained the information through her.
While the link between the female and Push remains unclear, truth is, who cares, this beef was beginning to taste really good once that podcast episode aired. Drake, on tour at the time, has remained publicly silent.
Yesterday evening, during a performance by Pusha T, the very large words on the very large screen behind him displayed a clear message. “F*** DRAKE” popped up as Push began his set and the crowd chanted along.
Though he took to Twitter to acknowledge the mishap and blame the “corny” tech guy and mention that “dissing anyone on screen isn’t part of my show,” no word from representatives of the festival as to how this occurred without King Push’s permission.
Grab your popcorn.
