Where’s the beef? I’ll tell you where it’s at; it’s between Pusha T and Weezy. GOOD Music versus Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB).

Last week, Pusha T casually dropped Exodus 23:1 (below), a track laced with subliminal slander aimed at Lil Wayne and his camp. Pusha T chides the collective with a couple bars mocking their financial structure. As Drake is signed to Lil’ Wayne’s Young Money imprint, which is under Birdman’s Cash Money, which, in turn, is under Universal Records. For some reason, Pusha re-ignited this beef/rivalry which was previously squelched. Reasons are not known but he has hit ’em up where it hurts the most…the money. Pusha “comments” on their diluted contract structure:

Contract all fucked up,
I guess that means you all fucked up,
You signed to one nigga that signed to another nigga,
That’s signed to three niggas, now that’s bad luck,


Lil Wayne, in a huff, responded in the not most subtle manner:



Kid Cudi, Pusha T’s GOOD Music cohort chimed in:



Lil Wayne dropped this mediocre response track, Goulish (he spelled “ghoulish” wrong):


Drake also apparently responded at his show in Washington DC.

If you was doing 16s (bars) when I was 16 and your shit (The Clipse) still flopped and you switched teams, don’t talk to me, My Nigga.


GOOD Music scion and founder, Kanye West, has been mum on the sitch.

Last night, Pusha dropped this gritty music video (header above) for the diss track which was filmed on the streets of his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia.

Now, if you step back, this all rings as some bitchy, sorority-girl catfight compared to the genuine beefs of yesteryear. I’m referring to the dangerous and real hip-hop enchilada of the East vs West/Biggie vs Tupac epic. And who knows, this could even be straight up pro-wrestling kayfabe shit between the two camps. For all we know, it’s ALL fabricated for publicity, orchestrated between the two coalitions to sell more records. Maybe we’re all getting played. Regardless, just sit back and grab the popcorn. Also, it’s nice to finally have something with an edge, an alternative to the onslaught of bubble gum hip-pop.

Streets is watchin’.
