Pusha T speaks on his diss aimed at Drake on "Infrared."
With a slew of new albums dropping at midnight, it's safe to say that the majority of people are looking forward to hearing Pusha T's new album, DAYTONA. The rapper confirmed the new title, artwork, release date and tracklist within the past 24 hours and continued to build the anticipation with a private listening party last night in New York. If you scrolling through your timeline, you probably caught a few clips of what Push has in store including a diss line towards Drake on "Infrared." In a recent interview, Pusha T made it clear that he's simply speaking his truth.
The internet immediately picked up on Pusha's shot at Drake on "Infrared" as snippets surfaced on Twitter and Instagram from the listening party. Push raps, "Your hooks did it/ The lyrics pennin' equals to Trump's winnin'/ The bigger question is how the Russians did it/ It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin."
During a recent interview with Genius' "For The Record," Pusha T broke down the bar and his initial response to Drake's "Two Birds One Stone."
"I mean, you know, I feel like everybody thought that 'Two Birds, One Stone,' you know, that was Pusha T, Cudi-aimed, so on and so forth, and that was fine, you know what I’m saying?" He said, "I heard it, I felt like, okay. I can't have an argument about how real I am. Let's not do that. If it's rap, let's let it be that. And I'm just speaking my truth, on this. I don't think it's anything disputable."
