The Pusha-T and Drake feud is officially over.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that J Prince instructed Drake not to release whatever diss record he was preparing.
Now, Pusha-T tells Vanity Fair that it’s ‘all done.’
In a new interview, Pusha answered a few Drake-related questions and it seems like both sides have agreed to move on.
Check out a few excerpts:
VF: You and Drake are obviously both huge heavyweights in your field. But it’s almost like you guys are playing different sports or something.
Pusha-T: Totally. And that’s something that I’ve always known during this whole thing. I feel like at the end of the day, I know that I never want to make a Drake record. I know that I never want to make a Kanye West_record. Really, to be honest with you.
You ever tell him that?
Yeah, I told him numerous times that I never want to make “Stronger,” ever.
You don’t like that song?
No, it’s just not for me. And you know, I groove to all of it. All of their records. But I feel like I’m so laser at what it is that I do. And I feel like people can’t get what it is that I do from anywhere else. I don’t believe that. “Come Back Baby” on the album is literally about me sitting there saying, “O.K., look, you made me the president of G.O.O.D. Music, I’m going to do this Hillary campaign, I’m going to be on this prison-reform crusade. I’m going to try to figure things out, whether it be a designer or a whatever it is. And ultimately, [there are] people saying, “Damn, all you talk about is dope, all you talk about is drugs.” O.K., cool, that’s what I’m doing. As I’m doing this, then the rumblings start. “Where’s Pusha-T, what’s going on? Man, we need drug raps. Where the drug raps at?” I could show you some drug raps right now.
It’s the energy.
It’s energy. It’s drugs. It’s energy, it’s taste level. It’s competitiveness. Man, it’s putting you on this shit. It’s teaching, it’s perspective. It’s perspective that you don’t really get to hear. This is a very brash perspective.
And at the end of the day, it seems like Drake’s going to put out No. 1 records forever.
And it seems like you’re going to put out these albums forever. And it seems like the beef is squashed. So is it all for nothing, or what do you think we’re supposed to learn from it?
I don’t even know. I don’t know what was lost or what was gained.
You talked about having a surgical summer with him, peeling the layers back. So it seems like you’ve got more stuff in the tank.
I mean, you know. These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with.
Do you feel good about that?
Yeah. I mean, listen: I’m ready to be back to the music for real. Just feeding my base, that’s it. That’s the most important thing to me at all times.
Surgical Summer is cancelled.
