While it seems like it’s been an eternity, it’s only been five days since Pusha-T dropped “The Story of Adidon.” Ever since the harsh diss of Drake, rap fans have been wondering if the Toronto rapper will respond.
Drizzy has addressed where the cover art Push used (which features his feud opponent wearing blackface) and says it was a parody of African American’s troubled history of negative representation in the media. Many people though weren’t even buying that.
Now, we’re learning that may be the only response we may get in Drake’s beef with Pusha-T. James “J.” Prince, who is the CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records and has a long history of advising Drake, has reportedly called Drizzy and suggested he not respond to King Push.
"I spoke with Drake," Prince said during an interview with DTLR Radio. "I made an OG call to Drake this morning, telling him, 'I don't want you to respond to this. We're going to put this to bed.' We're going to put this to bed because we can't get into the pigpen with pigs. Because pigs turn into hogs and hogs get slaughtered."
"That's not [Drake's] character," he continued. "We didn't work this hard to cheat ourselves over nothing. So that's the way that is."
During another interview on Friday, Prince says he believes Pusha-T went too far in his latest diss. "I think this guy is being disrespectful," he said during an interview with WPGC 95.5. "My book is called The Art and Science of Respect, so it's hard for me to not say he's being disrespectful [...] It's one thing for me and you to be in a situation and it's another thing for you to take it out on my momma or my dad. So I have a problem."
