Man, I’ve been talking about Pusha T for almost a week, son. All I know is, between his album, Daytona, and his beef with Drake, all of his moves have been good for Hip-Hop. So, I don’t regret a cotdamn thing, man. In any case, today’s post isn’t exactly about Pusha, fam. If anything, his recent diss to Drake has brought out all of the sensitive people, bruh. Listen, for those who are new to Rap music, battling has ALWAYS been disrespectful, brethren. All in all, if anybody thinks that Pusha went too far on “The Story Of Adidon,” then CLEARLY that person doesn’t know Rap history, folks.
Ok, before I continue, I want to give everybody a little homework, son. Now, it’s impossible for me to highlight every diss song ever released, man. I mean, waaaaaay too many muhfuckas have been snapped on, fam. However, there are three particular songs that are strong enough to prove my point. So, I want everyone to go listen to Tupac Shakur‘s “Hit ‘Em Up,” Jay-Z‘s “Supa Ugly” and 50 Cent‘s “Back Down.” The first song came out in 1996, the second came out in 2001 and the third came out in 2003. Basically, in that decade alone, three of the most disrespectful diss tracks were released, bruh.
Now, let’s examine these songs, son. To begin, let’s talk about “Hit ‘Em Up,” man. So, in the span of one verse, Tupac talks about smashing The Notorious B.I.G.‘s wife, Faith Evans, he calls Lil’ Kim all types of “bitches and hoes” and he threatens to kill the entire Junior M.A.F.I.A. In “Supa Ugly,” Hov talks extensively, and grossly, about how he and Allen Iverson had sex with Nas‘s baby mama, Carmen Bryan. In “Back Down,” 50 explicitly talks about murdering Ja Rule‘s mother, father, wife and children. Shit, he literally says that he would “erase” Ja’s “dirty ass kids,” fam. My God, that’s another level of beef, bruh.
So, in light of all of these songs, is Pusha’s diss to Drake really that disrespectful? Ok, yes, it is, but it’s still not the harshest response in Rap history, son. Look, individually, we all might taken offense to certain punchlines. However, at the end of the day, this is Hip-Hop, man. The entire objective of beef is to demolish the opposition, fam. Needless to say, Pusha is doing EXACTLY what it takes to come out on top, bruh.
In the end, folks need to lighten the fuck up, son. Ultimately, as long as no one is throwing hands or busting shots, let the beef cook, man. By and by, a little verbal gymnastics never hurt anybody, fam. With that being said, I’m still looking for Drake’s response, bruh. All I can say is, he’s going to need to come five times harder than “Duppy Freestyle,” people. That is all. LC out.
