With Drake and Pusha T‘s beef heating up, many are wondering what sparked it all. In a recent talk with Funkmaster Flex, Push offered some insight into the situation, explaining how everything dates back to when him and his brother No Malice performed as the duo, Clipse. At the time — around the early 2000s — Young Money’s Lil Wayne was accused of stealing their style. In response to that, he gave an interview, saying “Man, I’m on million-dollar buses. You think I wanna be like them?” From there, tensions between the two continued to grow.

Later in Pusha T’s interview, he explains that Drake was brought into the beef, simply for signing to Lil Wayne’s label. He insists the nature of what was going on at the time was strictly competitive though, including his 2012 dis track “Exodus 23:1” which was directed at Drake. However since then, Pusha T says the Toronto rapper has crossed some lines, instigating him to release “Infrared” on his latest album. It’s not clear what lines were crossed exactly, but Pusha does comment on why he thinks Drake bothered to respond, concerning the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music releases.

“I do feel like his issue is a real estate issue. He was dropping his album in June. ‘Ye comes out of nowhere, ‘Hey, I’m dropping five in June.’ […] But I feel like the real estate got a little weird for him. I’m just gonna be all the way honest with you, and not even on no funny, no nothing. I’m sure [Drake] is gonna put out an album that does numbers, so on and so forth. Great. But it’s not gonna be better than DAYTONA.”
