Pusha-T Claps Back at Drake with "The Story of Adidon"
"It's about to be a surgical summer"
Published May 29, 2018Hours after an interview was published in which he declared himself "ready for everything" in a beef with Drake, Pusha-T has now responded to the rap titan's "Duppy Freestyle" with a diss track of his own.
The song is titled "The Story of Adidon" and finds Push rapping over the beat for JAY-Z's "The Story of O.J.," produced by No I.D. The song's cover art, found above, features Drake in blackface. Pusha credited the photo to David Leyes in an Instagram story, with some internet sleuths confirming his claim.
As perhaps one could have expected, no lyrical punches are pulled by the G.O.O.D. Music president, who declares that it's "about to be a surgical summer" in opening the song.
The first part of Pusha's verse takes shots at Birdman's shady Cash Money Records business dealings and Drake's parents, with him rapping, "You mention wedding ring like it's a bad thing / Your father walked away at five, hell of a dad thing / Marriage is somethin' Sandi never had, Drake / How you a winner but she keep comin' in last place?"
Pusha then alleges that Drake has fathered a child with a porn star — something TMZ says is most definitely true — and goes on to name the child in retaliation for Drake naming Pusha's fiancée Virginia Williams in "Duppy Freestyle."
Pusha raps the following:
Since you named dropped my fiancée
Let 'em know who you chose as your Beyoncé
Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother
Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her
A baby's involved, it's deeper than rap
We talkin' character, let me keep with the facts
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home
Deadbeat mothafucka playin' border patrol, ooh
Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real
Love that baby, respect that girl
Forget she's a pornstar, let her be your world
Pusha wasn't done there. He rounds out the song by going to bat for Kanye West by taking shots at Drake's right-hand producer Noah '40' Shebib, penning bars about the beatsmith's battle with multiple sclerosis. He raps, "OVO 40, hunched over like he 80, tick, tick, tick / How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick."
Pusha rounds out the track with some more simple taunts, referencing Drake's recent single "I'm Upset" before gloating, "I wanna see what it's like when you get angry, okay?"
Pusha-T reignited a long-standing beef between Drake and himself with some thinly veiled lyrical jabs on track "Infrared" from his new DAYTONA LP, making light of the ghostwriting allegations that were brought against the 6ix God by Meek Mill in 2015.
Those words were penned in response to some bars Drake had written about Pusha on 2016's "Two Birds, One Stone," on which he rapped, "You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo / If you ask me though, you ain't lining the trunk with kilos."
Drake had written those lyrics in response to a few lines from Pusha's 2016 track "H.G.T.V.," on which he wrote and rapped, "It's too far gone when the realest ain't real / I walk amongst the clouds so your ceilings ain't real / These n****s Call of Duty cause their killings ain't real / With a questionable pen so the feelin' ain't real."
