Now the battle has officially commenced, let’s get into how it all started;
It all started with Lil Wayne initially in 2006. Wayne did a cover on Vibe Magazine and on the cover, he was wearing Bape clothing; something that the Clipse and Pharrell Williams in 2016 decided to takeover their signature look. When the Clipse noted that Lil Wayne took their style, they jumped on track called ‘Mister Me Too’ and said, Wayne bit their style and even in the video, they featured a guy wearing the Bape clothing.
In 2007, Lil Wayne responded to the Clipse and said basically, I’m the hottest rapper right and in order for them to get hot, they got to make a song with me. Some years went on, a lot of shots were sent through interviews but in 2011, Pusha T dropped a song called ‘Don’t F*ck Wit Me’ and even though he said it wasn’t a diss directly at Wayne, it was very clear that he went at Wayne and even a little bit at Drake.Also Checkout: Meek Mill and Drake to collaborate on new project?
Fast forward, Pusha T dropped another diss track ‘Exodus 23:1’ which was subliminal shot released in 2012 and this time it was clear he was going at Lil Wayne, a bit at Drake and Birdman. Wayne tweeted on May 24, 2012; “F*k pusha t and anybody that love em”.
Drake then took this battle into his own hands and decided to defend Lil Wayne. In the late 2013, when Drake dropped his ‘Nothing Was The Same’ album; on the track “Tuscan Leather” he decide to send some slight shots at Pusha T.
Few years went by and in 2016, Pusha T dropped a track called “HGTV” responding to Drake on the “Tuscan Leather”. Later in the year, Drake responded with the new diss track called “Two birds, One Stone” aiming at Pusha T.Click to also watch Garden (Say It Like Dat) by SZA
