Those of you asking the gods of beef for an unnecessary rivalry in rap, your prayers have been answered.
PushaT, one half of popular hip-hop duo Clipse, apparently started something when he released a new single called “Exodus 23:1” on Kanye West’s GOOD Music label. The new song stirred controversy by tacitly calling out Lil Wayne, Drake, and the whole Young Money/Cash Money Billionaires crew. Pusha starts the song by declaring, “Beef best served like steak, well done get a gun to your face.” And though his subject isn't explicitly mentioned, Pusha seems to jab at Drake, Wayne and associates, claiming: "Contract all f---ed up, I guess that means you all f--ed up."
Pusha T has beefed with Young Money in the past, suggesting in a 2007 interview for Complex that Weezy had stolen Clipse's style, but has since claimed to bury the hatchet after Wayne went to jail. Wayne, on the other hand, seems ready for a fight, tweeting “F--k pusha t and anybody that love em.” May we suggest a solution: Weezy and PushaT make a track together to squash the beef. No need to put Drake on there though—his Auto-Tuned vocal is on the radio plenty already.
