With Pusha T’s It’s Not Dry Yet album rollout underway, the Virginia wordsmith continued his press tour paying Wallo and Gillie Da Kid a visit on their Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast on Monday (February 21).
At one point during the hour-plus discussion, Gillie brought up Pusha T’s 2018 “Story of Adidon” and wondered if Push thought the scathing Drake diss track would have the seismic impact it ended up having.
“I didn’t know how it was going to react,” he explained. “All it was I knew I was speaking my truth and I knew I was speaking the truth… And I feel like the truth hurts. I don’t care what is going on, I feel like the truth definitely hurts… When you dealing with him, you’re dealing on a pop level or dealing on TMZ levels. I was like, ‘Damn, that’s a lot of attention. And it couldn’t have happened at a better time. My album out and I got the album of the year.”
Still, Pusha T didn’t feel the need to celebrate the victory as he doesn’t hold Drake in the same esteem of rhymers such as a JAY-Z or Jadakiss.
“On an artist level, I didn’t look at it so crazy because it wasn’t like I just beat The LOX in a rap battle or I just beat [JAY-Z] in a rap battle or some shit,” Push continued.
On a related Hov note, Pusha T did reveal he’s reconnecting with his “Drug Dealers Anonymous” collaborator for another JAY-Z-assisted track that will land on his upcoming album.
“I got three songs with him now … something from my new album,” he revealed. “I don’t know if I was supposed to say that, but I’m up with y’all, though, we here.”
