Lil Wayne was not too happy with the thinly veiled Drake diss on Pusha T’s “Exodus 23:1,” yet his name never came up during the recording process. Rico Beats, who produced the track for Pusha, told MTV News that the Young Money head was the last thing on their minds.
“Honestly, when we were in the room listening to that record, I didn’t hear none of these guys’ names brought up,” he explained. “It was none of that. Dream got in his zone and he went in the booth. Pusha got his pen, like I didn’t hear nobody mentioned.
“Pusha kept tellin’ me, ‘I need something dark, man. The album sounds crazy, but I still need somethin’ for my fans.’ So I was like, ‘I got you, give me by six o’clock,’ I went down to the studio and I was just listening to Biggie. I was just playin’ pure Biggie. So [“What’s Beef”] came on and once I heard [B.I.G.’s] ‘ha-ha-ha-ha’ [vocal] I was like, ‘Oh s**t.'”
Pusha may not have given Weezy a second thought during the recording, but the Virginia rapper’s lyrical assassination of Drizzy’s character was more than evident. Wayne defended the honor of his YMCMB comrade by releasing a snippet of the track “Goulish,” and doesn’t mince words in regards to his rap enemy.
In related news, Drake has been too busy trying to bag Rihanna to get involved in this latest rap beef.
