There’s no malice in your heart/You’re an approachable dude

Not even a full day after getting dissed on Pusha T’s “Infra Red,” Drake has dropped an entire response record entitled “Duppy Freestyle.”

Fans know these two have been verbally sparring for years, but this time it feels different on Drake’s part. The Toronto superstar usually plays it cool on his disses, but here he sounds absolutely fed up. There’s no setup verses or long-form punchlines — every bar is direct and hard-hitting. He touches on everything from Pusha’s repetitious coke rhymes to his status in the GOOD Music hierarchy:

There’s no malice in your heart, you’re an approachable dude
Man, you might’ve sold the college kids for Nikes and Mercedes
But, you act like you sold drugs for Escobar in the ‘80s

You not even top 5 as far as your label talent goes
You send shots, well, I got to challenge those
But I bring Calicos to the Alamo
I could never have a Virgil in my circle and hold him back ‘cause he makes me nervous

I really shouldn’t have given you none of my time
‘Cause you older than the nigga you running behind
Look, holla at me when you multi-million
I told you keep playing with my name and I’ma let it ring on you
Like Virginia Williams
I’m too resilient, get out your feelings
It’s gonna be a cruel summer for you
I told Weezy and Baby “I’ma done him for you”
Tell ‘Ye we got a invoice coming to you
Considering that we just sold another 20 for you

Pusha must have been waiting on this because he’s already plugged the track on Twitter. Will we get a Pusha response sometime this weekend? Does Pusha have another “Exodus 23:1” in him? Stay tuned.



On the surface, you might be surprised by the remix lineup for “Black America Again” that features Gucci Mane and Pusha T. But think about it — who better to give a street view of the devastation of black mass incarceration, drug abuse and police targeting of black men than Gucci and Pusha T?

Both do an excellent job of conveying their stances. Gucci showcases a nimble flow as he speaks on his growth from trap star to potential revolutionary. And Pusha gives nice ode to Slick Rick by adopting his “Hey Young World” flow.


Drake’s appearance this evening on OVO Radio marked the debut of four new songs that will be a part of a December album named More Life. The most interesting tracks is “Two Birds One Stone,” which finds Drake finally responding to Pusha T and delivering a counter jab at Kid Cudi.

Concerning Pusha, the OVO leader calls into question the G.O.O.D. Music president’s supposed drug dealing past.

But really it’s you with all the drug dealer stories that’s gotta stop though
You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo
If you ask me though you ain’t lining in the trunk with kilo’s
You bagging weed with all your niggas watching Pacino
Like “this is what we need to be on,” but never went live
You middle man in this shit, you were never those guys
I can tell cause I look most of you dead in the eyes
And you be trying to tell that story for the rest of your lives

Cudi, who recently included Drake in Twitter rant against Kanye West last month, was acknowledged by a slick reference using Cudi’s Man on the Moon album series.

My numbers are out of the world, no wonder they got me feeling so alienated
You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases

Some have predicted this will be the extent of Drake’s “disses.” Over the summer, he failed to respond to several full-fledged diss records from Joe Budden in response to “No Shopping.” What makes this different is Pusha and Cudi have a larger mainstream platform. A Pusha response by Halloween would not be surprising.

It’s too far gone when the realest ain’t real
I walk amongst the clouds so your ceilings ain’t real
These niggas Call of Duty cause their killings ain’t real
With a questionable pen so the feelin’ ain’t real…

Pusha T is pretty good at this rapping thing, y’all. The G.O.O.D. Music president gets some lyrical frustration off this chest by taking aim at Desiigner’s critics, and a few quick jabs at old nemesis Drake. Mike Will handles the beat and despite the unorthodox flow, Pusha’s bars are still potent.


Would you expect a a different theme with these two on the track? Pusha is in pure Clipse form with a succinct verse chock-full of vivid poetic imagery (“I can baptize this brick/ As I wash away my sins/ Like a Catholic…”). Jay takes the approach of a Don who actually succeeds in insulating himself from prosecution (“We got storefronts/ We got employee stubs/ We been opening studios and 40/40s up/ The paper trail is gorgeous…”).

Pusha T gets the nod here due to the sharper flow, but both came correct. Hopefully Jay sticks around and continues to shake the rust off because as good as this is, we all know the lyrical greatness Mr. Carter is capable of.
