What’s Beef? Pusha-T vs. Drake

Published

on

Bronx-born rapper Pusha-T has dissed Drake for years about having ghostwriters but turned up the heat recently on “Infrared” from his Kanye West produced album Daytona.

Drake responded with “Duppy Freestyle,” defending himself as a ghostwriter, too, on Kanye’s Life of Pablo, and suggesting (correctly) that Pusha’s beef is a Daytona marketing ploy. When Pusha jokingly suggests Drake should send him an invoice, Drake does.

After Drake mentioned Pusha’s fiancé by name on “Duppy Freestyle,” Pusha broke the part of the internet not distracted by Roseanne with his response “The Story of Adidon,” taking off the kid gloves and calling Drake a “deadbeat motherfucka” for fathering an illegitimate child with a porn star. Pusha, no stranger to controversial artwork (see Whitney Houston’s drug den bathroom on the cover of Daytona) released an old picture of Drake in blackface to accompany the track.

Drake defended himself on Twitter saying the pic was an old acting gig representing “how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”

Pusha ain’t buying it, calls Drake out for being “silent on all Black issues,” and offers 100K to anyone with dirt on Drake. In the hopes of squashing the beef, and perhaps any potential bloodshed, Kanye stepped in tweeting that “lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now.

So consider yourself caught up, and let’s hope there’s more bars and less tweets as the beef progresses.

Music Sucks

Published

on

Music is alive and well. Also, it sucks. Here are five brand new songs that you should avoid at all costs.

Paul McCartney – Fuh You

Can you believe I’m starting with one of the best songwriters of the last sixty years? This song takes the worst tropes of modern music and melds it with the smarmy lusts of a 76 year old man – set to the backdrop of the #metoo movement. Why Paul? Why?

Steve Perry – No Erasin’

After 25 years of silence, ex-Journey front-man releases this lyrical cesspit. Another guy pushing 70 pining for the backseat of some girl’s car. Even that smooth mid-section can’t save this Viagra ad.

Greta Van Fleet – When the Curtain Falls

Honestly, if this was a parody or a Ween song, I might feel differently, but come on Greta Van Fleet. You can’t just copy every nuance of Led Zepplin and get away with it. Although it’s working for them so far. All the elements are in place, they just need to find some originality. (the music kicks a little ass, I will admit)

Nicki Minaj – Ganja Burn

If Nicki Minaj looked like me you wouldn’t even know her name. Eight million views after three days.

Florida Georgia Line – Simple

If you like your middle-aged housewife country music with a dollop of auto-tune, have I got a terrible song for you.

New Music Alert!

New MUSIC alert! New MUSIC alert!

With a month left in the summer of 2018,  more releases are coming fast and furious. The competition for the airwaves is on and the prize is your attention –  so let me put you on to five new records.

Queen (Nicky Minaj)

Look who’s back? It’s Queen Nicky and she brought her pen with some friends along. Eminem, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande and Foxy Brown (nice to hear that voice again) to name a few. Nicky made a concerted effort to reach into her West Indian bag of roots on a couple of tracks on this offering and it’s worth the listen.

Astroworld (Travis Scott)

This brother has been working! Travis Scott didn’t half step, as a matter of fact he took two steps forward. Seventeen tracks are on this album to prove it…STRAIGHT UP (Travis Scott voice). This is one of those albums where you can let it rock out and stay in Astroworld the entire night.
Standout TrackWake Up

5E (N.O.R.E)

Let me start off with a big THANK YOU to N.O.R.E for staying true to his craft. If you’ve never heard what the NY sound was revered for, I suggest you cop this album immediately. “Mami use to call me Dick Cheyney cause I never take my chain off, when I got my brain off” is just one those lyrics that we look forward to N.O.R.E spittin. The collaborations are on point from start to finish. Fat Joe in particular took it back to the block on a couple joints on here.
Standout TrackDon’t Know

Commissary (Casanova)

Sometimes you need tracks to hit the gym right. Sometimes you need tracks to hit the club right. Well Casanova managed to have a little bit of both on Commissary. Get your weight up and pump this!
Standout TrackLeft, Right

 

Rolling Papers II (Wiz Khalifa)

For all of you out there that have a problem with the frequency of Wiz Khalifa’s releases. I will venture to say the problem has been solved. Wiz dropped twenty-five songs…yes 25! for you to roll with and to. So do what you do and let Wiz be the soundtrack.
