Beef sits atop of today’s menu, and Pusha T is no stranger to the topic. The G.O.O.D. Music MC called into DJ Whoo Kid’s “Whoolywoood Shuffle” radio show to speak on his Grammy nomination for “Mercy,” whether he’d work with Trinidad James, his latest Lil Wayne diss record, My Name Is My Name and the possibility of another Clipse album.
When asked about the shots directed at Weezy on “What They Mad For?,” Pusha openly admits that it came from a “petty and spiteful” place.
“At the end of the day Whoo Kid, this is how it works for me. You’ve got to remember the position that I’m in,” said Push A Ton. “These guys have way more fans than I got. They got tons of fans, and when you make a blanket statement like ‘F-ck Pusha T,’ I can’t let things like that just go. And I can’t let those type of things fly.”
Pusha admits that he struck while the iron was hot when he received the opportunity to dismantle Lil Wayne on a Swizz Beats production, since the YMCMB rapper attempted to do the same on “Ghoulish.”
The fresh topic of KimYe and their bundle of joy also arose, to which Whoo Kid asked Pusha T who’s most likely to become the godfather. “I don’t know who’s going to be the godfather, but we all going to pull our weight,” says Push. Considering how deep the G.O.O.D. Music infantry is, we agree with Pusha T’s following statement, “it only makes it better for the child.”
