Pusha alleges Drake is secretly the father of a porn star’s child; Drake is in blackface in the song’s art On Friday, Pusha-T reignited his dormant beef with Drake by slipping subliminal shots into “Infrared” off his new album Daytona. The same day, Drake released a track called “Duppy Freestyle,” in which he takes aim at Pusha and Kanye West. Now, Pusha has responded with a diss track of his own. On “The Story of Adidon,” he raps over JAY-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” The single’s artwork shows Drake in blackface makeup. As Pusha pointed out on social media, the artwork was pulled from an actual photo shoot with Drake by photographer David Leyes. Two different photos of Drake in the makeup can be found on Leyes’ website. Leyes has since tweeted at Pusha’s manager Steven Victor asking him to take the photo down. Pusha’s Instagram post of the artwork was later removed, and Pusha shared a takedown notice from Instagram. “First time this has happened to me,” he wrote.
When Pusha calls out Drake for referencing his fiancé Virginia Williams on “Duppy Freestyle,” Pusha alleges that Drake is the father of porn star Sophie Brussaux’s child. (The allegations have been the subject of gossip articles this year.)
Sophie knows better, ask your baby motherCleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on herA baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rapWe talkin' character, let me keep with the factsYou are hiding a child, let that boy come homeDeadbeat mothafucka playin' border patrol, oohAdonis is your sonAnd he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s realLove that baby, respect that girlForget she’s a porn star, let her be your world
Pusha also takes a shot at Drake’s longtime collaborator Noah “40” Shebib. “OVO 40 hunches over like he’s 80/Tick, tick, tick/How much time he got?/That man is sick, sick, sick.” Shebib suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. The producer’s subtweet in response attempted to raise awareness for World MS Day.
At one point Pusha references the business practices of Cash Money label head Birdman. (“The M’s count different when Baby divides the pie.”) There’s also a whole portion of the song where Pusha references Drake’s parents.
Dennis Graham stay off the gram, bitch I’m on oneYou mention wedding ring like it’s a bad thingYour father walked away at five, hell of a dad thingMarriage is somethin’ Sandi never had, DrakeHow you a winner but she keep comin’ in last place?Monkey-suit Dennis, you parade himA Steve Harvey-suit nigga made him
The song ends with him referencing Drake’s new single “I’m Upset.” “And you talkin’ about you upset? Well I wanna see what it’s like when you get angry, OK? You show me that.”
The next morning, Push called into Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” to discuss the track. Listen below.
