Pusha T Pokes At Drake’s Ghostwriting Allegations On ‘Infrared’

Pusha T has never seen a beef he didn’t want to keep alive. On “Infrared,” the Virginia rapper decided to throw more gasoline on his long-simmering tension with Drake, Lil Wayne, and Birdman.

“It was written like Nas, but it came from Quentin,” Pusha T raps as he makes light of the ghostwriting allegations that have surrounded Drizzy since his beef with Meek Mill. The president of G.O.O.D. Music keeps the pen hot when he aims at Weezy and Baby’s recent issues with each other.

Oh now it’s okay to kill Baby
Niggas looked at me crazy like I really killed a baby
Salute Ross ’cause the message was pure
He see what I see when you see Wayne on tour
Flash without the fire
Another multi-platinum rapper trapped and can’t retire
Niggas get exposed, I see the cracks and I’m the liar?

Pusha T’s animosity toward Cash Money dates all the way back to 2006. Clipse sent subs at Wayne on “Mr. Me Too,” referencing what they saw as jacking in response to a Vibe cover story that saw Wayne in similar Bape clothing. Wayne fired back during a 2006 Complex interview.

“I don’t see no fuckin’ Clipse,” Wayne said. “Come on man. Weezy, man. They had to do a song with us to get hot, B. “What Happened To That Boy?” C’mon B. Don’t do that, dog. This is a fucking legend you’re talking to right here. 14 years, B.”

In the ensuing years, there have been plenty of shots back and forth from Pusha T’s “Exodus 23:1″ and “H.G.T.V.” to Drake’s “Tuscan Leather.” However, 2016′s “Two Birds, One Stone” reheated the beef after Drake doubted Push’s drug dealing credentials. In an interview on Hot 97, Pusha T explained why he responded two years later.

“I feel like the Drake thing, more recently, was about the ‘Two Birds, One Stone’ record. A lot of talk about the record, or whatever the case may be,” Push said. “I guess, just speaking his truth, questioning my validity to the streets and so on and so forth within that verse. It’s fine. That’s what it was. But if we’re gonna question things…it’s my turn to question.”

Guess we will see if Drake takes the bait on Scorpion. Listen to “Infrared” below.

Jordan Brand Celebrates Carmelo Anthony’s 15th Season with Air Jordan 2 “Melo”

Before his current post in Oklahoma City with the Thunder, and ahead of his memorable years with the Knicks as a forceful staple in Madison Square Garden, three-time Olympic gold medalist Carmelo Anthony spent the earliest moments of his 15-year NBA tenure in the Mile High City. The 10-time NBA All-Star spent his first eight professional seasons with the Denver Nuggets. Some of which rank among his best in the Association.

Jordan Brand continues to honor Anthony’s 15th tour with a coveted relic from his Nuggets days. The adored Air Jordan 2 “Melo” player exclusive from 2004, long thought to never release much less over a decade later, will finally be available for general consumption.

Coated in lightly hued shades that ode the northwestern squad, Varsity Maize and University Blue contrasts join the primary white leather upper of Michael Jordan’s often underrated yet highly luxurious second signature silhouette. Anthony, the longest tenured Jordan Brand signature athlete, sees his long-standing presence further honored through his Melo logo perched along the sockliner and inner tongue.

Expect the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” in select stores on June 9.

Pusha T Reveals Why Kanye West Calls Him In The Middle Of The Night

Kanye West’s brand of leadership is very Michael Scott-esque. Yeezy seems like a kindhearted and familial boss who means well, but ultimately revels in the unbridled chaos of it all. In an interview with Power 105.1′s Angie Martinez, Pusha T opened up about his new album, DAYTONA, a potential tour with Nas, and updates on the rest of the G.O.O.D. Music roster. However, the most fascinating portion of the conversation arrived when Pusha described the challenges of working with West during the album making process.

“He [Kanye] changed my artwork last night at 1 a.m.,” Push said. “He changed my artwork at 1 a.m. ’cause he wasn’t feeling it.”

According to the G.O.O.D. Music president, the artwork for his album was completed and agreed upon by all parties. However, at the last minute Kanye decided the photos weren’t exactly what the world needed to see.

“[At] 1 a.m. my phone rings, no caller ID,” he continued. “‘Hey, yeah, I think we should change the artwork. I like this other artwork.’ Now this other artwork is 85 grand, right. I said, hey, I don’t want to pay for that and I wasn’t even going to ask you to pay for that. We picked what we picked. It’s here. It’s ready. [He said,] ‘No this is what people need to see to go along with this music. I’mma pay for that.’”

Kanye is reportedly producing four more albums in the coming weeks. Guess Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, and Nas are going to be getting a lot of early morning phone calls.

SZA Is Benched From TDE’s Championship Tour After Injuring Her Vocal Cords

TDE’s star-studded Championship Tour has come to an abrupt — but hopefully only temporary — end for SZA.

On Tuesday (May 22), label founder Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith took to social media to explain SZA’s absence from the last few shows. He revealed that the CTRL singer has been pulled from the trek due to a vocal injury, writing that she’s been ordered to “rest her voice to prevent any permanent damage.”

“We’ve been monitoring her close and this is the reason she missed the Arizona and New Mexico dates,” he wrote. Top Dawg added that the singer will visit a doctor to determine whether or not she’ll be able to rejoin the tour, and promised to keep fans updated on her condition. He and SZA are also trying to find a way to make it up to fans who didn’t get to see her on the missed dates.

SZA retweeted Top Dawg’s statement but didn’t add any comments of her own.

The Championship Tour — which also features Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and more of the label’s talent — kicked off earlier this month in Vancouver. The arena trek is still slated to make stops in major cities like Atlanta, New York, and Chicago before wrapping in Pittsburgh on June 16. Here’s hoping SZA will make it back to the stage for at least a few of those dates.

Here’s How John Elliott Wore His Nike LeBron Icon Collab

John Elliott is best known for designing clothes, but he’s also pretty well known for wearing them.

The man managed to show his affinity for both last night as he donned his own John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon while attending Game 4 of Cavs vs Celtics series.

From head to toe, JE kept it both basic and interesting. A backward Yankees fitted was worn as expected with perhaps the statement piece being a tie-dye oxford as if Jerry Seinfeld listened to Jerry Garcia. From there, cut off jeans set the stage for black crew socks juxtaposing the sail sneakers.

Drake Apparently Wrote ‘Nice For What’ While Playing Video Games

Drake’s “Nice For What” is an intricate tightrope act. The song produced by Murda Beatz balances a Lauryn Hill sample, New Orleans bounce groove, and an intro from Big Freedia, but manages to make the disparate parts coalesce into one grand vision. Surprisingly, the story of how the song came together makes it seem like all of that complexity wasn’t difficult to manage. In an interview on the Rap Radar podcast, Murda Beatz shared that he worked on the song with Drake while the rapper was playing video games.

“We were chillin’ at Drake’s house,” Murda said. “We’re playing [NBA] 2K, and we came up with the idea to get like a female artist, to sample a female artist. So I asked my manager Cory, like, ‘Yo, what do you think?’ He’s like, ‘[Lauryn Hill's] “Ex-Factor” and then Drake’s like, ‘Oh, what part?’ And we picked the part, chopped it up, I made the beat while he was playing 2K.”

Murda also revealed that the first pass at the song was written in under two hours.

“He sat there,” Beatz continued. “Wrote the shit in front of me. Cut the shit in front of me. Yeah, we had the shit done, beat and song, probably like hour and a half.”

Murda Beatz is having a phenomenal year. He produced “Motorsport” for Migos and “I Do” on Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy, along with an entire tape for Smokepurpp. Hopefully when Scorpion drops, there are a few more Murda concoctions.

Watch the entire interview on Tidal.
