Just yesterday Pusha T released his new album DAYTONA to critical acclaim. Kept tight at a compact 21 minutes, King Push wasted no bars, even taking aim at Drake on the track “Infrared” where he 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.”
Drake quickly responded with his own track “Duppy Freestyle” where he lays down the lines “If you rebuke me for working with someone else on a couple of V’s, what do you really think of the nigga that’s making your beats?/I’ve done things for him, I thought that he never would need/Father had to stretch his hands out and get it for me.”
He later goes on to let Push know that he has an invoice coming for him with the lines, “It’s gonna be a cruel summer for you/I told Weezy and Baby ‘I’ma done him for you’/Tell ’Ye we gotta invoice coming to you/Considering that we just sold another 20 for you.”
Pusha T, provoked by the bars, then took to Twitter to ask Drake to send the invoice through.
Well it looks like Drake has kept that promise and created an invoice for $100,000 for the Virginia Beach rapper. Hilariously, the reason for the invoice reads “Promotional assistance and career reviving”.
While the exchange could raise accusations of being nothing more than a clever publicity stunt, the feud is sure to be a self-fulfilling prophecy as Pusha T’s album continues to garner much fanfare and move even more units. The beef also serves the double purpose of keeping Drake’s name in headlines as the release date for his upcoming album, Scorpion, quickly approaches.
