Lil Wayne Falls Back From Pusha-T Beef
Mr. "Fuck Pusha-T and Everybody That Love Him" has gracefully bowed out of any beef with his G.O.O.D. Music nemesis. The YMCMB rapper says that he's more interested in pursuing business ventures than rap beef. Sounds good... But, you need more people Wayne #WeDontBelieveYou
LOS ANGELES — With a clothing line and a powerhouse group of artists under his umbrella, Lil Wayne claims he's trying to stay above the fray.
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.
