As the beef between Pusha T and Lil’ Wayne heated up musically this weekend, Pusha’s brother No Malice (formerly known as Malice of the Clipse) joined in via Twitter. “Well I LOVE Pusha! That’s my blood and I ain’t never kiss em” he tweeted yesterday, in reference to a controversial past photo of Lil’ Wayne and Birdman kissing that surfaced around a decade ago.
Birdman claimed in 2006 that the kiss was simply a father-son exchange, telling radio station Q93, “Wayne to me is my son – my first-born son – and that’s what it do for me.”
This comes on the heels of Lil’ Wayne’s dis “Goulish.” “F–k Pusha-T and everybody that love him. His head up his ass so i’ma have to head butt him,” Wayne raps on the intro to the record. “N—-s cant see me. Not even a glimpse. Too many banana clips, I feel like a chimps.” Wayne also tweeted “F— pusha t and anybody that love em” before releasing the track.
The cause for tension between Pusha and Wayne appears to stem mostly from Pusha’s “Exodus 23:1” track that came out on May 23, although Wayne and the Clipse have shared a peppered past. “Contract all f—ed / Explain up I guess that means you all f—ed up / You signed to one ni— that signed to another ni— that’s signed to three ni— / Now that’s bad luck,” Pusha spits on the biblical-inspired cut, which many saw as an attack on Wayne’s YMCMB colleague Drake.
Drizzy himself apparently came back at Pusha on Friday (May 25) with his own two cents during the D.C. stop for his Club Paradise tour. “If you was doin’ 16s when I was 16 and your sh– still flopped and you switched teams don’t talk to me my n—a,” Drake allegedly said to the crowd while he stood on stage at the Verizon Center.
Expect more jabs between Pusha’s G.O.O.D. Music collective and YMCMB to follow.
