G.O.O.D. Music President Pusha T dropped his highly anticipated response to Drake's "Duppy Freestyle" yesterday, only to have the song's artwork reported on Instagram as offensive content. He accused Drake of being an absentee father to an alleged baby, used a photo of him in Blackface as the track's cover art, and potentially confirmed the rapper's long-rumored collaboration with Adidas. Further, Pusha posted a screencap on IG that showed the service removed the image, possibly due to fans reporting the image.
The controversial pic was reportedly taken from Too Black Guys' ad campaign.
One user compared it to Kanye's recent pro-Trump tweets - including one where he wore a Make America Great Again cap. "It's very informative when you listen to a talk host report a story that they've actually researched and share it with their audience but this Rupaul Drag Race Queen looking B#+##^ has stepped out of her lane". Pusha T took jabs at Drake's alleged paternity, his family dynamic and even his blackness.
Drake: I want you to have an abortion. Adding more salt to the wound, Pusha raps over the beat from Jay-Z's recent "The Story of O.J.", the video for which includes minstrel imagery that harkens right back to Drake in blackface. "OVO 40 hunches over like he's 80/Tick, tick, tick/How much time he got?/That man is sick, sick, sick". "Marriage is somethin' that Sandi never had, Drake/ How you a victor, but she keep comin' in last place?" "Adonis is your son/And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real/Love that baby, respect that girl/Forget she's a pornstar, let her be your world!"
The association made headlines on Friday, however, with Pusha-T's Daytona release.
The tension between Pusha and Drake goes back to around 2006, when Pusha's rap group Clipse sparked a fight with Lil Wayne (the Young Money boss Drake has always been loyal too).
