Though his beef with Meek Mill is over, Drake has new enemy: Pusha T.
Drizzy has delivered a scathing new track aimed at Pusha, along with a few lines for Kanye, after the G.O.O.D. Music rapper went for him on “Infrared”, off his recently released project Daytona, as well as a track called “The Story Of Adidon”. On both tracks, Pusha accuses Drake of not writing his rhymes, while also alleging that the Canadian rapper had a baby with a porn star and doesn’t claim the child.
The cover art for “Adidon” is pretty bad too. As you can see below, it features an image of Drake wearing minstrel show blackface makeup. To add insult to injury, Pusha says it is actually an unedited photograph.
Please stop referring to this picture as “artwork”…I’m not an internet baby, I don’t edit images…this is a REAL picture…these are his truths, see for yourself https://t.co/gd6vRS3HM8 pic.twitter.com/2el58HEZ8F

Well, Drake had enough and responded this week with “Duppy Freestyle”, taking the usual shots — Pusha isn’t on his level and exaggerates his drug-pushing past.
“Your brother said, it was your cousin then him, then you / So, you don’t rap what you did, you just rap what you knew / Don’t be ashamed, it’s plenty n*ggas that do what you do / There’s no malice in your heart, you’re an approachable dude,” Drake raps.
He also addresses the Quentin Miller controversy, saying it’s normal to collaborate… and all Pusha has to do is look at Kanye. “I’m in shock, the nerve, the audacity,” he begins. “So if you rebuke me for working with someone else on a couple of Vs, what do you really think of the n*gga that’s making your beats? / I’ve done things for him I thought that he never would need / Father had to stretch his hands out and get it from me.”
“Don’t push me when I’m in album mode / You’re not even top 5 as far as your label talent goes,” Drake continued.
Elsewhere, Drake takes a shot at Kanye, referencing how longtime Ye collaborator Virgil Abloh has spread his wings… and Kanye doesn’t like it. “I could never have a Virgil in my circle and hold him back ’cause he makes me nervous,” Drale raps. “I wanna see my brothers flourish to their higher purpose / You n*ggas leeches and serpents / I think it’s good that now the teachers are learning.”
Before closing out the cut, Drake tells Pusha he’s going to send an invoice to G.O.O.D. Music for raising his profile and helping bring his career back. “Tell ‘Ye we got an invoice coming to you / Considering that we just sold another 20 for you,” he said.
After “Duppy” dropped, Pusha retweeted the link and referenced Drake’s lyrics, writing, “Send the invoice for the extra 20…”

Taking it a step further, Drake has actually sent an invoice to Pusha’s manager and Def Jam EVP, Steven Victor, in the amount of $100,000 for services of “promotional assistance and career reviving.” He shared a screenshot of the invoice on Instagram with the caption: “You’re welcome.” LMAO!
