Arby's got the meats and Pusha T's got the beef, kinda. In an unusual turn of events, Arby's and Pusha weirdly became collaborators... for a diss track against McDonald's fish sandwich?

If you're going to get someone to do a diss track, I guess the man who exposed Drake's secret child is the right way to go.

In the "Spicy Fish Diss Track," Pusha T takes aim at McDonald's Filet-O-Fish sandwich, calling it "tasteless" and "basic," questioning why customers should trust square fish with cheese on it (I mean, he's not wrong).

Ultimately, Pusha praises Arby's new Spicy Fish sandwich, claiming it's not up for debate who has the better fish sandwich (it's Arby's, in case you missed Pusha's point).

But there's a little more to the story and it's deeper than spicy seafood.

See, Pusha actually plays a very significant role in McDonald's history: he co-wrote the fast-food chain's original "I'm Lovin' It" tune in 2003 along with Malice, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell Williams.

But McDonald's only paid Pusha & co. an upfront fee with no royalties for perhaps the most popular — and, sadly, unforgettable — jingle in the world.

Now the rapper's reheating his McDonald's beef in this Arby's diss track: "I'm the reason/The whole world love it/Now I gotta crush it." Yikes!

At the end of the commercial, Arby's makes it clear that Pusha got paid for his work this time, giving Pusha T the last laugh in his fast food war.

It's still pretty spicy though: Kanye West, Pusha T's longtime pal, recently linked up made a surprise appearance in McDonald's 2022 Super Bowl ad, perhaps hinting at Ye getting his own meal.

Is there guy code for working with your friend's fast food enemy? Maybe not but Ye's made it clear that he can't be friends with his ex's new man.
