Lil Wayne Speaks On Beef With Pusha T
The rapper says “there’s no beef” between himself and Pusha T, despite back-and-forth diss songs released in recent weeks. Conflict between the two, simmering for years, boiled over when Pusha T of The Clipse – signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music group – released a track targeting Lil Wayne and his Young Money signee Drake.
Lil Wayne, who rarely responds in such cases, quickly released a brief song online called “Ghoulish” aimed at Pusha T “and anybody that love him.”
But in an interview at a Los Angeles Macy’s department store to promote his skateboarding-inspired Trukfit clothing line, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press he doesn’t plan to escalate the Pusha T conflict. He’s got business – and fashion – on his mind.
AP: What’s next musically? And what happened in the beef between you and Pusha T?
Lil Wayne: I just finished recording my “I Am Not a Human Being II” album. And we’re starting to work on the Young Money album. … It really wasn’t no beef, you know. It was just me. I just reacted. Just a reaction, a simple reaction. I don’t apologize for it because I’m human. But it was just my human reaction. I don’t take it back. But there’s no beef. Beef is a whole different thing. … I’ll move on.
