The thing that fans learned during the scorching “The Story of Adidon” diss track is that Pusha not only knows how to investigate, he’s quite skilled at delivering tea on somebody’s personal business.
Even though he doesn’t expressly call out Drake, most pop culture fans believe Pusha T is talking directly to the Canadian rapper with the “Im Upset” reference and the following message:
As for Drake, fans don’t know if he can bounce back from the Pusha T diss record — much less the blackface photo shoot that Pusha used as the cover art to his diss record. The controversial images, snapped by Canadian photographer David Leyes in 2007, featured Drake in full minstrel-era black face paint and red lips.
The photos created such a backlash that Drake had to come back to tell his fans that his intention was to show “how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”
But Pusha is not buying Drake’s explanation, which he broached during a radio interview with “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” Thursday morning.
“You don’t stand for nothing, you don’t say nothing about nothing,” he said of Drake while asking if the Toronto native was “so passionate” back when he posed for the photos but doesn’t currently use that platform to shed light on any issues that beset African Americans.
