Pusha T and Drake ongoing feud has been kicked up several notches by Pusha’s vicious new diss track ‘The Story of Adidon‘, on which the New York rapper alleges that Drake has secretly had a child with adult film actress Sophie Brussaux.
That accusation has grabbed headlines (“You are hiding a child, let that boy come home / Deadbeat motherf***** playin’ border patrol, ooh / Adonis is your son / And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s real”), but probably the cruellest jab is the line, “How much time he got? That man is sick, sick sick”, aimed at Noah ’40’ Shebib. Drake’s producer was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2005, and pointed out himself on Twitter that tomorrow is World MS Day.

So, a quick recap to where all this came from. Last Friday, Pusha T’s album DAYTONA came out, and on the track ‘Infrared’ he had a pop at Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter (“The lyric pennin’ equals the Trumps winnin’ / The bigger question is how the Russians did it / It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin [Miller]” and “How could you ever right these wrongs when you don’t even write your songs?”).
Drake released his own diss track, Duppy Freestyle, within 24 hours. In it he appeared to suggest that he’d been writing with Pusha T’s producer Kanye West in Wyoming (“I just left from over by y’all puttin’ pen to the sheets”; Drake also helped out on ‘Father Stretch My Hands’ and ’30 Hours’ from Kanye’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’), and reversed a position he’d held of not calling out other rappers for using ghostwriters, having been attacked by Meek Mill in the past.
Then Pusha T invited Drake to send him an invoice, if he apparently owed Drake so much. So Drake did mock up an invoice, which was quite funny.
And so Pusha T doubled down on the whole thing, released ‘The Story of Adidon’, and that leaves us where we are now.
That’s the short version, but this beef goes waaaaaay back to 2006, when Pusha T and Lil Wayne, Drake’s label mate and the man who first put him on the world stage, had a run-in.
