Subliminal rap disses are tricky. Sometimes wayward lines develop into full blown rap battles, mostly nowadays, rap sublimes amount only to a bunch of blog comments and Twitter banter. Because he didn’t mention there is no telling exactly who Pusha T is aiming at, but the Clipse rapper clearly has someone set in his sights on his latest freestyle “Don’t F--- With Me.”
Using Drizzy’s “Dreams Money Can Buy” as his backdrop Pusha Ton throws ambiguous lines like the opening “The nerve of ya, he’ll sit and clip at your lines like he ain’t heard of ya/ I seen it happen before that man will murder ya.” It’s likely that the Re-Up Gang general is aiming at former G.O.O.D. Music comrade Consequence. Some have suggested on Twitter that Push has also taken aim at Drake.
With the line, “Rappers on their sophomores claiming that they’re boss lords/ Fame’s such a funny thing for sure,” it’s apparent Pusha is referencing a artist on their second album and while Drake is preparing to release his sophomore LP Take Care, Consequence has also yet to drop his second album Cons TV.
The track’s next few lines reference Dave Chappelle and his longtime writer friend Neal Brennan. “Chappelle Show, all of you Neil Brennans/ Sketch comedy who is for real pennin’?”
