In a new interview, Drake gives us an update on his ongoing feuds with Pusha T and Kanye West.
Drake sat down for a lengthy two-hour interview with veteran hip hop journalists Elliot Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller for their podcast, Rap Radar, which was released on Christmas Day.
The rapper, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, says that he’s in a “great healing place.” But when asked about his beef with Pusha T and if he could ever squash things with the rapper, Drake says no way.
“I have no desire to ever mend anything with that person,” he says of Pusha. “The situation just went where it went and there is no turning back.”
Of course, Pusha T started the nasty feud with Drake with his low-blow diss track “The Story of Adidon,” which was released in May 2018 and produced by Kanye West. In it, Pusha went so far as to reveal that Drake had a secret son that he hadn’t disclosed to the public.
“He’s just made an entire career off of it,” Drake says of Pusha, but also says that he doesn’t listen to any of Pusha’s music because he doesn’t “believe any of it.” And apparently, Drake only likes to listen to guys he believes.
Drake went so far as to blame his problems with Pusha on Kanye, saying he thinks Yeezy is the root of it all.
Drake claims Kanye “definitely recruited a guy with a similar dislike” for him, “no matter what he says in interviews.” And of course, in the past, Drake has insinuated that Kanye is the one who told Pusha about his son to begin with.
Despite his problems with Kanye, he still says that the rapper is his “favorite artist all around.”
But even so, Drake says, “Things have changed. I’m not just some kid that’s a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”
It looks like Drake’s feuds with Pusha T and Kanye will continue to rage. When asked if he’d be open to communication, Drake responded, “No, not really, because it’s not on my end.
“I have no problem with any of these guys. I don’t even know these guys like that.”
