AceShowbiz - Young Thug refuses to be dragged into the Pusha T and Drake drama. After reports emerged that the former member of hip-hop duo Clipse dissed Drizzy in a song that was supposed to be featured on Pop Smoke's posthumous album "Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon", Thugger has blasted his collaborator on social media.
Taking to his Instagram Stories on early Tuesday, July 7, Thugger said he wasn't aware at the time that Pusha was taking aim at the Canadian superstar in the song. He wrote, "I don't respect the pusha t verse on the song with me and gunna cause I don't have nun to do with y'all beef nor does Gunna."
Claiming that he would never approve it, the "Danny Glover" spitter added, "and if I knew that was about him I would've made changes on our behalf." He went on calling out the president of Kanye West's record label GOOD Music for using the song to fan his feud with Drake, writing, "This rapper s**t so gay."
Earlier this month, Hip-Hop Lately revealed that Pusha was going to be featured on Pop Smoke's album in a track called "Paranoid". In his verse, he takes a shot at Drake, referencing a 2018 incident during a Toronto concert.
"You know reality bites/ It's chess not checkers/ Those empty threats only sound good on your records/ If the patois is not followed by blocka/ It's like marked for death Screwface, without the choppa/ Let 'em rush the stage when you made like Sinatra," Pusha raps, potentially referencing Drake's use of the dialect and a 2018 incident when several men rushed the stage during Pusha's "Daytona Tour" show in Toronto.
In another part of the song, he mentions Mississauga, the neighboring city to Drake's hometown of Toronto. "Only to find the blade, flyin' back through LaGuardia/ I might even buy a home out in Mississauga/ On my walls, half scrawls of Tshabalala's/ Many doors, that are sprawled, they my il nana's," he spits his bars. "Make a call, she gon' crawl, Bad Gyal Patra/ I'm involved then absolved, I am Godfather, hush."
Responding to the news, a fan wrote in an Instagram comment, "Why'd y'all take off thug. I always said I wanted to hear both of them on a track. rip wooski." Steven Victor, the head of Pop Smoke's label Victor Victor Worldwide, later replied, "glitch will be on ASAP."
