Despite the compliment, he also spoke highly of his own response, "The Summer Collection." "I put a response out there I think it was pretty crafty," he said. As for another diss song from Pusha, he's currently busy working with No Malice and hopes to release another Clipse album. Perhaps a response could make the tracklist for that effort.
