Pop Smoke’s second posthumous attempttrust, arrived at midnight today. And while many rap fans are talking about the project as a whole, some are particularly focused on a bar that Pusha T released on Pop’s track “Tell the Vision,” starring Kanye West, which people think is an aversion to Drake.
On the line in particular, King Push rhymes: “The crown is only for the king, you are trying to put it on a clown.”
While it’s unclear who Pusha is referring to for opting not to drop a name, people speculate the bar is a blow to Drake, Pusha T’s well-known rap enemy.
One person tweeted, “Lmao @PUSHA_T can’t be relevant without Drake. He proves that over and over again. Tell The Vision was almost a good song. “
Another wrote, “Clout is chasing after a so-called” real nigga “at all times. He can’t sell a record without ousting the Toronto guy,” and was probably referring to Drizzy, who is from the Canadian city.
Pusha T and Drake’s beef dates from nearly 10 years ago when the Virginia-raised Reimer was still half of The Clipse with his brother Malice. However, things have definitely come to a head in the last few years when the President of GOOD Music appeared on 6 God on his 2018 albumDaytona. Pusha, who is usually relentless with his pen, shot Drizzy in “Infrared”.
And Drake, who rarely backs down from a challenge, fired back with “Duppy Freestyle,” a joint that contained dissent to both Pusha and Kanye West.
Tensions heightened when Pusha T released “Story of Adidon” and released accompanying artwork that showed an old photo of Drake with a black face. Pusha took another merciless step and revealed that Drake has a son, information that the public was not yet privy to.
In response, OVO Records’ chief honoree offered “Emotionless” and “March 14” on their 2018 LP.Scorpio, announces that he has a son named Adonis and that the child’s mother is former adult film star Sophie Brussaux.
The hatchet has yet to be buried and whether or not this will ever happen remains a mystery, or maybe even a rap beef that will never be solved.
Anyway, check out below to see more of the reaction from the bar people who think Pusha T did on Drake in Pop Smoke’s new song “Tell the Vision” with “Ye” and listen.
