Pusha-T Speaks on How the Drake Beef Started
It’s noted that Drake & Pusha-T have been beefing for quite a while, reignited with the recently released “Infrared” track.
Entertainment bloggers have traced the growing feud back to the early 2000s when Clipse—a group composed of Pusha and his brother No Malice exchanged disses with Young Money’s Lil Wayne.
Let Pusha tell it, the beef started after Lil Wayne was accused of biting Clipse’s style.
Push continued: “It was a bit aggressive, for me
[…] I was on hiatus for four years.”
