Last week during a recent episode of LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s The Shop show on HBO. Drake opened up about his feud with Kanye West and Pusha T for the first time. During the lengthy convo – Drake blamed Kanye West (who by the way is currently in Uganda leaving his best life) for divulging information to Pusha-T about his then secret son.
“I’m in Wyoming, I play him ‘March 14,'” Drake explains. “I send him a picture of my son. I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother. We had a conversation.”
Now in a new interview with Joe Budden on The Joe Budden Podcast, Push has come out to rebuff Drake’s accusations, claiming it was the Toronto native’s producer Noah “40” Shebib’s loose lips that got the information to him and not Kanye West.
“The information came from 40,” the G.O.O.D. Music president said. “It didn’t come from Kanye, at all. 40 is sleeping with a woman, who begins to . . . he talks to her daily. Five, six hours a day . . . And ultimately speaks about how he’s disgruntled about certain things, notoriety and things involving Drake and his career, and so on and so forth. With that also came the fact that Drake has a child. With that also came the trip that everybody took to go see the child, and bring him gifts, and all this information. She divulged this information. That’s where it came from.”
“Only reason I’m here now, for real for real, is because [Drake] was so passionate about the MS thing,” he continued. “And they did the backlight and they put the spotlight on his face, ‘When you said my friend,’ but your friend is the reason why. That’s how it came about. That narrative’s gotta die. Listen, it needs to die. It’s done. That narrative is done.”
The Daytona rapper also spoke on Drake trying to berate him for wishing death on ’40’ who has multiple sclerosis.
“Where I’m from forreal, it ain’t ever personal it is always rap shit. I don’t believe nothing I’ve been around here too long,” Pusha says.
“I look it as just competitive sparring. What’s up. I see everybody. I see them in hotels. We be in elevators together. It’s nothing. I’ve never taken it as serious as anything other than rap to be honest with you.”
