A song featuring Young Thug, Gunna, and Pusha T called "Paranoia," in which Pusha appears to diss Drake, was reportedly left off Pop Smoke's album. Since the track leaked, Thug decided to address the situation on his Instagram story, ultimately taking aim at Push.

“I don’t respect the Pusha T verse on the song with me and Gunna cause I don’t have nun to do with y’all beef nor does Gunna. And if I knew that was about him I would’ve made changes on our behalf… This rapper sh*t so gay,” he wrote in an Instagram Story.

Young Thug's social media post prompted a response from Pusha, who also utilized Instagram to send a message to his counterpart.

“Aye Young Thug, a couple things: 1. Don’t feel bad, NOBODY knew what the verse was about. The label heads that stopped it didn’t even know. They ONLY ASSUME because HE TOLD them! The same way HE TOLD about the Ross ‘Maybach 6′ verse. And if HE’LL TELL record executives about rap verses, God only knows what else HE’LL TELL! I don’t deal in Police Work, Police Rappers, or Police N*GGAS!!! 2. Young Thug, you were the last verse added to the song and that’s ONLY because I requested you! 3. And most important Young Thug, just so we are clear… I WOULD NEVER look or need your respect for what it is I bring to this rap game!!”

After responding to Thug, Pusha mentioned Pop Smoke’s manager, Steven Victor, demanding that he be removed from the deluxe edition of the album.

“Steven Victor I demand you take me off the deluxe Pop Smoke album to avoid any confusion that may take away from this amazing volume of work,” he exclaimed.

Pop's posthumous album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon dropped last week, and while it was praised by fans, some people noticed a track was missing from the project. According to a report by Hip-Hop Lately, Pusha was planned to be featured on the record with a track called "Paranoia."

The publication cites a Youtube video claiming to be the leaked song, as well as some lyrics to the song that were published on Genius. On the verse, Pusha appears to take aim at his longtime foe by taking digs at Drake's patois and his hometown of Toronto – by sneak-dissing its neighboring city, Mississauga.

"Those empty threats only sound good on your records / If the patois is not followed by blocka / It's like marked for death Screwface, without the choppa / Let 'em rush the stage when you made like Sinatra / Only to find the blade, flyin' back through LaGuardia / I might even buy a home out in Mississauga," he raps.

When fans hit up Pop's label manager, Steven Victor's page, he confirmed that Thugger and Gunna were actually supposed to be featured on the album, but unfortunately, there was a glitch. He assured fans that they would be fixing the glitch ASAP, meaning Thugger and Gunna should be showing up on Shoot For The Stars in no time, however, no word on what will happen with Pusha's verse.
