Rapper Lil Wayne believes that Pusha T’s new track, Exodus 23:1 is a diss against Young Money.
Pusha T dropped the track Wednesday (May 23) night from his forthcoming solo album. Shortly after, Weezy took to Twitter (@liltunechi) and tweeted, “Fuk Pusha T and anybody that love em.”
The track samples Notorious B.I.G’s What’s Beef? and has a ton of subliminal lines throughout it. “Throwing that flag up, runnin around like you hot sh–, taking half of everything you get,” the G.O.O.D Music rapper’s chorus goes.
The song also features the lyrics, “Contract all fucked up. I guess that means you all fucked. You signed to one nigga, then signed to another niggaa. Then signed to three niggas. Now that’s bad luck.”
Pusha also calls out an unknown producer on the song rapping, “You can keep your beats, nigga. We’d much rather share your bitch nigga, bitch nigga.”
No actual names are mentioned in the song, and Pusha T was unable to be reached for clarification as he is currently at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
Kanye West and the entire G.O.O.D Music crew are all in Cannes to celebrate the premiere of Yeezy’s short film, Cruel Summer. G.O.O.D Music is releasing a compilation album of the same name this summer. Pusha T’s solo project is due out this fall.
Lil Wayne and Pusha T have had issues with one another since The Clipse dropped Mr. Me Too in 2006. Weezy also took that song as a diss against him. This started a feud between the two that was vocalized through songs and interviews.
There was also some speculation that Pusha T was dissing YMCMB’s Drake on the song Dreams Money Can Buy, but Push denied those claims, and said the song wasn’t about Drake.
Funkmaster Flex asked Drake about the song, and he said, “I listened to it, and I just couldn’t pick it out. I couldn’t pick out where I was supposed to be offended. First of all, I had never really had any interaction with Pusha T, so for him to diss me me would be purely issues that he’s having with himself,” Drake said.
“We’ve met, but we’ve always been cordial to each other. I’m a fan of The Clipse. I say it in interviews, so I never really had an issue with him, but you know, it’s a frustrating time for people right now, I get it, so if it was directed at me, just make it a lil’ more direct next time. You know, I’m up for whatever, man. I didn’t take offense to it, though.”
