Music News: Pusha T Shuts Down Rumors Of Any Problems With Drake.

Pusha T is the rap Freddy Krueger of dream land. Today, not only did he launched his new website www.pusha-t.com, but he dropped a record called “What Dreams Are Made Of” from his Fear of God II: Let Us Pray EP coming out next month.

Hip-hop fans are still talking about the last song Pusha T put out, “Don’t Fuck With Me,” over the instrumental to Drake’s “Dreams Money Can Buy.”

Pusha didn’t call out names on that one, but he threw daggers. Lines like “Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords/ Fame such a funny thing for sure when niggas start believing all those encores/ I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour” had fans speculating about he was rifling off his lyrical ammo at.

One name that came up consistently on the rap blogs was Drakes. To which Drizzy answered on a recent Funkmaster Flex interview: “I listened to it and I just couldn’t pick it out,” he said referring to the alleged diss. “I couldn’t pick out where I was supposed to be offended. First of all I never really had any interaction with Pusha T so for him to diss me would be purely issues that he’s having within himself. We’ve met but we’ve been just always cordial with 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 a lot of people right now. I get it, so if it was directed at me just make it a lil’ more direct next time.”

Pusha saw no problem with Drizzy’s retort.

“What he said on Flex, any self respectable man is supposed to say when you sitting on Flex with five million listeners… When you have a album coming out,” Pusha told XXL. “That’s all well and good. I don’t take that any type of way. I seen the same thing happen when Drake put out his ‘Dream’s Money Can Buy.’ His rendition. That was a freestyle over that record. Everybody was like ‘who is he talking about?’ so on and so forth. I never thought anything about it. I never felt no type of way about it. People was like [Drake] said ‘my favorite rappers lost it or they not alive no more.’ Everybody was like is he talking about Kanye, Jay-Z, Pusha, the Clipse? Man, none of that shit ever phased me. I never looked at [his rhymes] no type of way. I looked at it like that was a amazing record.”

Pusha says some fans should stop speculating and just enjoy the raps.

“I think people are putting too much on it,” Push said. “I’m a fan of [Drake’s]. I been a fan of dude. I always thought his shit was good. But when it comes to this rap, I don’t play a whole bunch of games. I just don’t. When I attack these instrumentals, I’m really feeling myself. I really am. I’m good man. When I put that record out, I never put ‘Drake Diss.” That’s what the people felt about it. I can tell you for sure, you listen to the whole first verse of the song, Drake ain’t never stole nothing from me. A lot of stuff, people are picking and choosing what they feel applies to him and so on and so forth. There are a lot of different angles and mindsets I was in when I was writing that record. But I think it is what it is and I love it.”

Fear Of God II: Let Us Pray officially arrives on November 8. —Shaheem Reid
