Lil Wayne Downplays Beef with Pusha T

Lil Wayne Downplays Beef with Pusha T

Lil Wayne insists he’s moved on from the war of words with Pusha T

Published June 19, 2012

Tension between Lil Wayne and Pusha T came to a head late last month when the two artists traded well circulated diss tracks. At the time, Wayne famously declared "F--k Pusha T and everybody that love him," but now he's making it clear that a war of words is not the same as beef.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Weezy said his rhymes and statements were simply reflexive after Pusha fired first with his song "Exodus 23:1."

"It really wasn't no beef, you know. It was just me. I just reacted," he said. "Just a reaction, a simple reaction. I don't apologize for it because I'm human. But it was just my human reaction."

Wayne said that although what's done is done, he doesn't see a need for bad blood to persist between himself and the G.O.O.D Music representative from Virginia.

"I don't take it back. But there's no beef," he said. "Beef is a whole different thing. ... I'll move on."

The Young Money captain said he has finished recording his next album, I Am Not a Human Being II, which will be released later this year. The first single from the project, "My Homies Still," features none other than Pusha T's label mate Big Sean. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
