The Best Reactions to Pusha T’s Ruthless Drake Diss ‘The Story of Adidon’
The track is the latest blow in what has become hip-hop's newest full-blown rap beef. After Push mentioned Drake's use of ghostwriters on "Infrared" on his impressive album, Daytona, a disappointed Drake hopped right on it, releasing "Duppy," where he rather exasperatedly proclaims that Pusha is actually a nice guy, and breaks down that he helped put his alleged ghostwriter, Quentin Miller, on— not the other way around. (Quentin has since responded to all the ghostwriting claims on "Destiny Freestyle)" where he basically says he doesn't want to be part of any "old beef."
Anyway, days after "Duppy Freestyle," we officially have Pusha's response, and it is... uh, super personal.
"Drug dealin' aside, ghostwritin' aside/Let's have a heart-to-heart about your pride/Even though you're multi, I see that your soul don't look alive/The M's count different when Baby divides the pie, wait," Pusha starts before proceeding to lay out a jaw-dropping verse that took it to the next level of personal.
Over JAY-Z's "Story of O.J." beat (where No I.D. samples Nina Simone's "Four Women"), Pusha T touches on everything from Drake's bi-racial heritage and his perceived insecurities —"Confused, always thought you weren't Black enough/Afraid to grow it 'cause your 'fro wouldn't nap enough"— to his dad, Dennis Graham's, "Steve Harvey suits" and past deadbeat dad antics: "Your father walked away at five, hell of a dad thing/Marriage is somethin' that Sandi never had, Drake/How you a winner, but she keep comin' in last place?"
In fact, the cover of the diss track is a picture of Drake dressed in black face shot by David Leyes, which Pusha went on Twitter to clarify is not photoshopped because he doesn't "edit images."
And that wasn't even necessarily the biggest "gotcha" moment. That came later, when Pusha alleges Drake has a hidden son named Adonis with a porn star.
"Sophie knows better, ask 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 mothaf---a, playin' border patrol, ooh/Adonis is your son/And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real," Pusha contends.
The alleged mother is a woman who now goes by Sophie B, real name Sophie Brussaux, reports Vulture. She's a former porn star but now is a painter. She also made her IG private after the song was released. Back in May of last year, TMZ initially reported on the story. Back then, Brussaux had hired two lawyers in New York to get a paternity lawsuit in motion. She also reportedly had text messages that she and Drake purportedly exchanged discussing the pregnancy. During the interaction, Drake allegedly asked her if she was going to get an abortion to which Brussaux replied, “I can't kill my baby simply to indulge you sorry.”
Let's just say, there were a lot moments in this rap that Drake is definitely going to have to address. In the meantime, the internet has had much to say. Take a look at some of the best responses below.
