Pusha T: Drake is ‘hiding a child’ named Adonis, Drake is a ‘deadbeat’ dad

Day Three of Wireless Festival including Pusha T, Tyga, Yuna and Tory Lanez

Of all the things to happen this week, I honestly wasn’t expecting a massive diss-track beef between Pusha T and Drake. Pusha T (with help from Kanye West) was about to drop a new album (Daytona), and that album involved some disses of Drake on the song called “Infrared”. Drake heard “Infrared” several days ago and WITHIN 24 HOURS, he released “Duppy Freestyle,” a diss track against Pusha which many called brilliant, savage and amazingly petty. This is Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle,” NSFW for lyrics:

So Pusha T waited a few days. He went back to the studio. And then he went IN.

Pusha T went straight for Drake’s jugular in a newly released diss track … taking shots at Drizzy’s childhood, alleging he’s got a secret son and releasing a photo of a young Drake with blackface. In the track, titled, “The Story of Adidon” — mixed over the beat for Jay-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” — Push raps, “You are hiding a child, let that boy come home, deadbeat motherf*****.”

Pusha T drops Drake’s alleged kid’s name, saying, “Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an Adidas press run” and targets the baby mama, who he calls “Sophie” … “Love that baby, respect that girl. Forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world.”

Push touches on Drake’s race too, saying, “Confused always felt you weren’t black enough, afraid to grow it because your fro wasn’t nap enough.”

“The Story of Adidon” was dropped with artwork of a younger Drake with his face painted black … a photo which we’re told was untouched.

[From TMZ]

I’m including the artwork below – did Drake really do minstrel-like blackface? Good God, this stuff is so… shady, petty, crazy and amazing. I’d heard about Drake’s secret son too, but I didn’t know what to believe. These rap beefs have gotten crazy-personal. Oh, and Pusha says he’s just starting to peel back the layers, as in this is just the first layer. OH MY GOD.

This is the artwork and a clip of “The Story of Adidon,” NSFW for lyrics.

Oh, and Drake posted this a few days ago, his attempt at being a gigantic bitch and saying that he’s revived Pusha’s career. Pusha was like, “yeah, no.”

You’re welcome. 🦉

      @ Sara : that my exactly my thought too “And they say women are petty”. Nooooooo, men do it much better! LOL

      • still_sarah says:

        Also I wonder if Drake is cutting a cut of the profits from the manufactured spat to promote Pusha T’s new CD?

  2. NameChange says:

    Drake is right, though, this is the best promotion for Pusha’s album. No one (except hardcore rap fans) was checking for Pusha until this “beef” with Drake (and the stunt Kanye pulled with Whitney’s drug photo).

    Don’t quote me, but another website says the photo was doctored and that’s not really Drake (although another says it IS Drake, so who knows).

    • Jussie says:

      It is Drake, the photoset’s been around forever. There’s another photo with the blackface that has him looking very sad, and together with this image you can sort of see what he was going for as far as social commentary…but it’s one of those ‘this sounded much smarter than it turned out’ ideas.

    • I rarely comment but... says:

      Peter Rosenberg from Hot 97 did some research and found that the photos were from a school project discussing the problems around the Jim Crow Era.

  3. Jussie says:

    Drake made a critical error getting into a beef with Pusha-T. Can’t really believe he was that stupid.

    • NameChange says:

      He thought he would have another Meek Mill situation. But now he’s beefing with both Pusha AND Kanye (Kanye is Pusha’s producer) and, say what you will about Kanye, he has bars. If he’s helping Pusha behind the scenes, Drake is done (unless he can get Lil Wayne or another real lyricist to help him).

      • Asiyah says:

        Kanye has NO bars. Pusha, yes, but Kanye, no. He picked the wrong rapper to mess with.

      • Pia says:

        Lol at Kanye has bars. Kanye isn’t a top notch lyricist by any stretch of the game. He’s been rumored to have ghost writers his whole career. Kanye excels at production not bars.

      • Jordan says:

        Rhymefest has bars, not Kanye.

    • Iknowwhatboyslike says:

      I was surprised too! Pusha T has always been hardcore. He wasn’t mainstream by any means, but has always been lauded as a top lyricist. Drake has the numbers, Pusha has the skills.

      • PoodleMama says:

        I used to be a big Pusha T fan from way back when he was in Clipse. However, this response has really made me think that Meek was much more intelligent about his Drake beef despite losing. Some of the things Pusha said really bothered me in particular…making fun of Drakes producer for having MS. I also think it was such a stunt queen thing to do to make Whitney’s bathroom pic his album cover. At least Meek left room to still have a positive personal brand (which he is doing now with all of his prison reform stuff).

        The Drake photos…which are apparently real are insane to me and I think that this is the rare rap beef that will actually make me like both of them less.

      • Lithe says:

        ITA @PoodleMama. It bothers me immensely that Pusha T stooped to mocking 40’s MS.

    • Peeking in says:

      He didn’t get into beef with PushaT. Pusha started with him years ago. Drake said he was a fan of Push, even bought a signed mic, and out of nowhere, years ago, Push started coming for him.

      • Saks says:

        No it was Drake. Pusha T had a beef with Lil Wayne that Drake took over for some weird reason

      • Peeking in says:

        Saks, not true, you need to go back to the start of the beef. Drake has always been a fan of Push, Push took the first shot. I think Ebro explains it all.

  4. Kimma1216 says:

    Who is this guy and why is he relevant? Stirring up controversy for attention. Between this and the Whitney pic, I’m all set. I don’t know who he is..and it doesn’t matter to me.

  5. Iknowwhatboyslike says:

    So my husband is a big time Hip Hop head. He loves a good lyricist beef and he was so amped this morning in the car and God forgive me, so was I. I haven’t been this invested since Nas and Jay-Z. Pusha T was vicious as hell. It was so such a personal song, especially going at Aubrey’s long discussed in the Hip Hop world, identity with his mix raced. He’s been accused of being a fraud when it comes to finding his “blackness.” As long as it stays non-violent, I’m all here for a beef. A dose of healthy competition inspires better music. I feel the good artists are stepping up big time. As for the baby, our local New York station is claiming that the mother of Drake’s son was a bottle girl at a strip club and did what some may call “soft porn.” I wish she hadn’t been brought into it to shame her. But Drake seems to not be in the child’s life and did ask her to get an abortion when she told him she was pregnant. There were text messages.

    • Apalapa says:

      Yeah I am not for shaming the mother of his son.

    • Peeking in says:

      I remember when Sophie posted on Instagram, apparently he flew her to the UK to see him, she’s European, but was sleeping with the crew that weekend, so he wasn’t sure it was his kid. He had responded back then and said it wasn’t his, and asked her to stop using his name, and she stopped. No idea why Push dragged her name into this.

    • Reef says:

      Drake should’ve never mentioned Pusha’s fiancé. Once you start mentioning folks family/loved one’s – welp, gloves are off.

    • Asiyah says:

      “As long as it stays non-violent, I’m all here for a beef.”

      Same here!

  6. Swack says:

    Have no idea who Pusha-T is except for the fact that Kanye purchased a photo of Whitney’s drug photo. Two grown men acting like teenagers is what I see.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      Catty and childish af. I have to question who is entertained by this nonsense? Dragging a person’s kid or former partner into it is out of bounds, not okay.

  7. Ayra. says:

    I follow Sophie. She wears OVO gear a lot, was out on private planes, I read that a paternity test was done. And Drake was apparently planning on using Adonis’ pictures for his new Adidas line (why he said that Adonis deserves better than an Adidas press run).
    Pusha came for his dad, his mom, his baby mom’s, his son, his producers.. Jeez. And people are undoubtedly going to be mad, but rap beefs are always so below the belt, that’s the whole point of a rap beef, you hit hard with bars and besides, this isn’t even the worst you can hear.

    (Just realized that this thread is going to be filled with people who have never heard of Pusha T, nevermind then).

    • MVC says:

      He really came for everyone.

    • me says:

      Well Drake came for Pusha’s fiance first…so Pusha came back with personal stuff too. The part I really hate is making fun of anyone who has an illness…that is just disgusting.

  8. Beth says:

    Pusha who??

  9. HeyThere! says:

    The only thing that makes me sad is the baby. Hopefully If it is true, he’s more involved behind the scenes, not just sending money. He will regret it later if he isn’t around.

  10. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Both of them are gross and need to stop. Drake for them minstrel photos and Pusha for that bathroom photo. I don’t believe for a second that he did not know about that cover.

    Drake is being petty but he is right. No body really gives a shit about Pusha-T like that. He is only being blown up because a lot of people want to knock Drake off the pedestal that white people put his corny ass on and the disgusting album ccover. That is it.

    I will admit that I want to see what Drake is going to do now. He can only go even more personal against Pusha or take the L and move on before he gets exposed further. Pusha being a former drug dealer has no room to judge anyone since he was selling death and destruction to people before he switched careers.

    Kid Cudi must be be smiling somewhere at all this.

    • Div says:

      I love Kid Cudi, but I’m afraid he’s going start caping for Kanye since they have an album coming out together. I know Pusha from Clipse but yeah, people are definitely blowing him up and ignoring the worst parts since they want Drake off that pedestal. I’ve seen music journalists drag Pac for the sickle cell Prodigy bit when they write articles on his legacy, even if they think beefs should be no bars, so I’m side-eying the fuck out of people cackling at the MS line.

      • Joy says:

        Coming for Noah crossed so many lines, I’m surprised more people aren’t calling him out for that (and his use of the bathroom picture was just abhorrent). It’s so gross and not okay making fun of someone’s illness. Both need to stop and are petty and gross.

    • Saks says:

      Kid Cudi was the one I thought of too. Drake was vicious asf for coming for his mental health issues. Anyway Pusha T is a top lyricist and as others have already said, it was a dumb move of Drake to come for him

      • Peeking in says:

        But Drake and Cudi were in a battle, OVO40 is not part of this. Also, Cudi made fun of his mental health first, by going in for treatment, coming out 2 weeks later and saying he’s fine and it was nothing serious. That’s why Drake spoke on it.

      • Valois says:

        Nah, that’s not why drake spoke on it. Cudi was still in rehab when he realized the tack it I remember correctly and I don’t recall Cudi saying it was nothing serious.

  11. Slowsnow says:

    I love that the child’s name is Adonis, the handsomest greek mortal, lover of Aphrodite.

  12. MVC says:

    I read something like ” Drake thought that this was a boxing match and Pusha T hit him with a bat in the head” couldn’t describe it better 😂
    The kid I do believe is his son, it’s surprising he only has ONE, after all the things I heard about him on the internet forums.

  13. KeWest says:

    Sounds like a pretty stupid feud.

    Also if Kanye is involved then it should get dumber.

  14. TyrantDestroyed says:

    How old are these men?

  15. Div says:

    The worst bit for me is was the homophobia and how he made fun of one of Drake’s best friends for having MS and said “tick tock how long he has left.” Pusha’s brother was way more talented before he found Jesus and quit the game. People thought it was fucked up when Pac made fun of Prodigy for having Sickle Cell in the 90s and Drake for needling Kid Cudi about his mental health, so it’s kind of hypocritical how twitter is embracing Pusha’s MS dig.

    I know people were loving this, and maybe I’m soft, but I find this sad. I’m so sick of the hardcore misogyny and misgynoir in beefs and music as a whole, Drake included even if he wasn’t as bad. It wasn’t right back in the late 90s, early 00s, but the social environment was different and I understand how it happened. In 2018, I can’t stomach it anymore, especially as a Black woman since we’re almost always the ones getting dragged by trash men.

    *Also, the blackface photo was trash but I saw it in context and I “get” what they were going for even if I think it’s still a trash, disgusting idea. It’s not like Drake dressed up as a minstrel performer for kicks like twitter is running with. I don’t like Drake, Pusha, or Kanye, but 18 year old Drake’s stupid stunt/dumb attempted edgy commentary doesn’t bother me as much as 40 year old Kanye caping for Trump, wearing a Confederate flag jacket and a Maga hat, etc (and yes, Drake stans need to learn that Blackface is still offensive even if you’re Black).

    • Jenna says:

      I think people just like when Drake is dressed down because he goes around acting like he’s hood when he really isn’t.

      I didn’t like the homophobia or the 40 diss either. Today is MS awareness, I hope they get some mileage out of this.

      I never really warmed to Drake because of his patriarchal ways, but his recent releases stink of fake wokeness. Like, don’t advertise your charity or market your feminism. And if you’re upset, don’t just say it, throw down some good lyrics.

      • d says:

        Been side-eyeing Drake for a while myself so this is all good for me. I don’t think he is anywhere near as nice as he makes out.

  16. Menlisa says:

    Maybe Drake will now claim his son.
    No wonder Rihanna was done with him.

  17. Jenna says:

    fwiw, it Drake got wind of the track before Daytona dropped. It was practically leaked, but no one cared because Pusha was sorta irrelevant before going after Drake on Adidon.

    Cruel way to make a comeback, but also dang, dude should be on Mueller’s team.

  18. ISSAQUEEN says:

    I’m worried about my boy Drake. He might have met his match because Pusha is no Meek.

  19. Max says:

    It may even be more than one baby. I know I heard about another stripper being pregnant some years ago. It has been said that Drake doesn’t use condoms. Maybe Drake paid her off like Justin Beiber did way back when he was younger.

    • me says:

      Ughhh gross does he not care about STD’s? I mean having unprotected sex with porn stars is something he should worry about ! Also, the man is rich, doesn’t he know a lot of women would love to get pregnant by him?

      • Panda says:

        Actually… porn stars may be the safest people to bare back cause they are tested infinitum

      • me says:

        Wasn’t there a huge HIV epidemic in the porn industry just a few years ago? I mean you should use protection every time, no matter who you’re with.

      • iseepinkelefants says:

        I’m not here for bashing sex workers. They’re porn stars, just because they have sex for a living that makes them filthy? And it wasn’t “an epidemic”. A male star had done a movie in Brazil or something and came back to do a film in America, unfortunately he ended up infecting like two people. That being said, there is a lot of testing in that industry. I forgot which documentary covered this “epidemic” but it’s out there, watch it, learn something, and stop treating sex workers like they’re a lower class of people because they have sex for a living.

  20. me says:

    How has no one ever seen that pic of Drake in “blackface” before? How was that not floating around the internet? Where did it come from? Why would he think that’s ok to do? I really want to know.

    • PoliteTeaSipper says:

      It was mentioned upthread that it was something in high school regarding the Jim Crow era.

      • Argonaut says:

        @PoliteTeaSipper it was from 2008, so 10 years ago. drake is 31 so he was NOT in high school. it was for a fashion brand that dealt with jim crow imagery.

        @me yes it was on the internet before this, the photographer had it on his own website years ago, can be seen with archive.org. it was apparently just not noticed.

  21. Mia4s says:

    I have no idea who this guy is but I will say one thing; this shows how lazy and/or bought the tabloid press is! Drake hides a child while the gossip rags are like, here’s a picture so and so posted on instagram, here’s so and so getting coffee. Laaaaaaaazy. Why are any of these magazines still in business?

  22. sarah6 says:

    I never cared for the fake accent Drake puts on when he’s from the suburbs of Toronto. It’s reeks of taking advantage a certain kind of blackness in order to get white people to buy or stream his records. That’s why it should come as no surprise that he’d do blackface. He has no respect for black history and pain.

    • NameChange says:

      This! He never had a blaccent before he started rapping. Yes, he’s black, so it gives him a slight pass, but he’s almost as bad as Iggy Azalea with that.

      • Peeking in says:

        Forest Hill is not the suburbs, though. It’s practically in the heart of the city.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Agree with your point but my petty, Toronto-born butt has to point out that Forest Hill (where he’s from) is a very affluent area IN Toronto, not the suburbs 🙂

  23. Really says:

    This is so next level.

  24. Sandy says:

    They always do this before trying to sell records. What ever!! He with Kanye so… cancelled for me.

  25. reinventa says:

    I’m here for this beef… Its been plenty of strippers that said Drake only likes sex without a condom.. So I can believe that he has a baby. It might be more than one. I recall the gossip during that time. Its was 2 or 3 women that said they were pregnant by him around the same time. 1 claimed he sent goons to force her to get an abortion. 1 ended up being someone else’s baby and this chick Sophie got real quiet. She posted he was a deadbeat. Then after her child was born, she posted pictures of her getting on private jets. So I’m going to say its true. Also Pusha said on the Breakfast Club this morning that he had more info and he is ready if Drake tries to respond. Damn. When Pusha said its a Surgical Summer and he was going to peel back layer by layer, he wasnt lying. I’m ready for more messiness.

  26. No Doubtful says:

    I had no clue he had a child! I’m not familiar with Pusha T, but I think Drake has met his match amd will take the L on this one… It reminds me if Remy’s take down of Minaj (which she was too chicken sh!t to respond to).

  27. Jordan says:

    Stunt to stir up sales. Kanye’s name is attached here, ain’t nothing other than a stunt.
