Pusha-T kept it all the way real in an interview with Funkmaster Flex on HOT 97 in NYC last night. The G.O.O.D Music rapper spoke on an array of issues, including Nicki not performing at Summer Jam and the Drake/Chris Brown fight.
But first things first, we all want to know what Pusha-T thinks of the Lil’ Wayne’s diss record, “Ghoulish”. Check out what he said about the diss below:
“It was horrible. It was trash. It wasn’t great. I haven’t said anything about it ’cause I didn’t think it was good enough to respond to.”
That was a brutally honest answer. Pusha-T admitted that he was still confused about the whole thing and wants to know what was it that caused Lil’ Wayne to go off.
“He’s already said what he’s said. At the end of the day, I think him saying what he said was in his best interest, to admit that you were emotional in reacting to something. I still want to know what part pertained, what hit you? I wanna know.
“I was surprised by anybody, Wayne specifically, answering ‘Exodus.’ I’ve never seen one record that didn’t say a name cause so much of a firestorm.”
Pusha-T revealed that G.O.O.D Music label head Kanye West and he have never spoken about his beef with Lil’ Wayne.
“I don’t talk to ‘Ye about rappers. I blacks out. I get busy. I stand by myself. We ain’t talked about it once.”
Pusha-T also spoke his mind about the Chris Brown vs. Drake beef and may have taken a shot or two at Drake in the process.
“I would have never thought that the two was at it like that. I really wouldn’t have put them together and that whole situation. I didn’t like it. You know Chris from Virginia. I ain’t like that. You know, bottles and cuts and all that… That’s weak.”
But when it came to Nicki Minaj pulling out of Summer Jam, Pusha seemed to be riding with Nicki on this one.
“I thought it showed a real level of camaraderie by her listening [to Wayne] and not performing, and sort of banding together like, ‘Yo, we ain’t doing it.’ There was some solidarity there. I thought that was fresh.
“Let’s call a spade a spade. [Peter] Rosenberg attacked her. Rosenberg was doing him, but that’s what he does. He’s an outspoken guy, everybody knows that. … I definitely would have performed, just for the sake of my fans. I know Rosenberg’s personality well enough to know that this is what comes with the territory. It’s a cruel world out here. Everybody got their own opinions. When Rosenberg disses me, I’ma black out in a verse immediately the best way I know how.”
Was that a warning shot to Rosenberg to keep Pusha’s name out his mouth, unless he wants to end up on a song?! Pusha also said that there will “definitely” be another Clipse album on the way, and he cleared up any rumors that he and (No) Malice have broken up.
“A lot of people get that twisted and they say, ‘You and your brother broke up.’ We can’t break up, we brothers. It doesn’t happen that way. He went and did his book and I went on a solo venture. We definitely coming back with another Clipse album.”
I can’t wait for that Clipse album! Side note: do you think Drake is going to respond to Pusha calling his actions “weak?”
