Pusha T Says Being a Father Has Changed His View On Drake Beef.
Pusha T on Thursday spoke on an edition of Desus & Mero to promote his latest album, It’s Almost Dry, and to discuss his collaboration with mogul/rapper Jay-Z. Desus, though, addressed Pusha about his lyrical spat with Toronto superstar Drake and what prompted him to move on approximately six minutes into the conversation.
“You know what it is? I don’t like the energy of mentioning my son in that type of energy — or any kid in that type of energy,” he says referencing his first-born son, Nigel. “ It’s not my thing right now. I got my son! And it’s like, with me, I’m just not going to play about anything involving him. Like, I don’t play nothing. So it’s like, ‘You know what? I’ll just [leave it alone].’”
Pusha T and Drake’s Feud
The irony of this turn is noteworthy because Pusha T was the one who sparked their feud when he claimed Drake was hiding a child on “The Story of Adidon” in 2018. However, Pusha T and his wife welcomed their first child, Nigel Brixton, in June of 2020, giving him a new perspective on the verbal sparring.
“It’s selflessness,” he added. “And I’m very selfish, I’m a super selfish person; with my son, I have totally taken myself [out of it]. It’s all him first.”
Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Pusha T’s fourth studio album, It’s Almost Dry. On Twitter, the Bronx rapper also announced forthcoming tour dates.
