Hip-hop star Pusha T is putting his rap rivalry with Drake to rest, insisting “it’s all over with.”
The Trouble on My Mind MC reignited their long-running war of words in late May with the release of his album Daytona, on which he took aim at Drake on the song Infrared, mocking him for using ghostwriter Quentin Miller to pen some of his rhymes on 2015’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
Drake responded with Duppy Freestyle, in which he called out Pusha’s fiancee Virginia Williams, prompting the former The Clipse star to drop The Story of Adidon, claiming the God’s Plan hitmaker has been hiding a secret lovechild conceived during a fling with former porn star Sophie Brussaux.
He also stirred controversy by using an old photograph of Drake in blackface as the track’s cover art.
The Canadian rapper didn’t fire back with a musical response, and his close associate J. Prince, the CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records, recently explained that he was the one who persuaded Drake to ditch the diss he had already lined up and walk away from the heated exchange.
Prince, whose producer son Jas Prince originally discovered Drake on MySpace, also revealed Pusha T’s mentor, Kanye West, had reached out to him in a bid to help clear up the dispute.
