Pusha T "The Story of Adidon" (Drake Diss)

"Since you name-dropped my fiancée
Let 'em know who you chose as your Beyoncé
Sophie knows better as your baby mother
Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her
A baby's involved, it's deeper than rap
We talkin' character, let me keep with the facts
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home
Deadbeat mothafucka playin' border patrol, ooh"

A signature "Yuugh!" from Pusha T on this whole track, no question. I'm not above being petty, for sure, or else I wouldn't even post this audio, but the questions a beef like this raises are more important than the beef itself. Rules? Boundaries? Codes? Now, as layered an MC as Pusha T is, I suspect he only went low because he knows more than we do, or else he wouldn't take these shots at 40; he's above that, no? So, while I won't post about it again (unless another great track accompanies it), we're gonna see it play out. Maybe questions will be answered, because, ya know, Hip-Hop is still young, we're learning as we're going, so this may end as a blueprint for beef moving forward. Again ... Yuugh! Walk away, Drake.
