It looks like Pusha T and Lil Wayne have no interest in ending their war-of-words. The brazen Clipse member has released a video for “Exodus 23:1,” the diss track that recently reignited the beef. Meanwhile, Drake and Lil wayne have responded in kind.
The Sam Rogers-directed clip is straight and to the point, showing Pusha T and his Re-Up Gang in attack and hustle mode on the streets. There are gritty images of random drug dealing and sneering lines directed at Young Money matinee rhyme idol Drake as well as Wayne (“Them n****s ain’t dying for you…”).
The “Exodus 23:1” video is just the latest jab from Pusha T, who is signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. Last week, the Virginia MC dropped a song that seemingly addressed Drake’s position a s a signee to Wayne’s record company via Baby’s Cash Money Records.
“Contract all f***ed up/ I guess that means you all f***ed up/ You signed to one n**** that’s signed to another n****/ signed to three n****s, now that’s bad luck.”
The track quickly got the attention of Wayne who took to Twitter proclaiming to his more than 6 million followers, “F*** pusha t and anybody that love em.” He then went on to record his own diss reply, “Goulish,” which received a tepid response.
On Friday (May 25), Drake added a few words to the fracas during his D.C. leg of the Club Paradise tour. “If you was doing 16s when I was 16 and your s*** still flopped and you switched teams don’t talk to me my n****.”
The war between Pusha T and Lil Wayne is nothing new to rap fans. It first heated up when Pusha addressed accusations of style-stealing on the Clipse’ 20008 mixtape Re-Up Gamg: We Got It for Cheap Vol 3. While they later decided to live and let live, Pusha’s “Exodus 23:1” added fuel to a fire that has apparently never stopped burning.
