Earlier this week, Clipse member Pusha T released "Exodus 23:1" to the Internet and radio, a song that many presumed was the latest in a series of perceived disses towards Drake and Young Money Entertainment. Young Money's CEO Lil Wayne responded, first with a tweet disrespecting Pusha T "and anybody who love him," and yesterday (May 25) by way of his own song, "Goulish."
Today (May 26), the other half of The Clipse, and older brother to Pusha No Malice (f/k/a Malice) responded via Twitter. "Well I LOVE Pusha! That's my blood and I ain't never kiss em," tweeted the Virginia Beach emcee and author.
The mention of kissing refers to a mid-2000s photo of Lil Wayne and Cash Money Records CEO Birdman (f/k/a Baby) engaged in a kiss. The ritual was later said by Birdman in 2006, to be because of their father-son relationship since Wayne's youth. In 2006, the pair released a collaborative album, Like Father, Like Son although the executive is not Wayne's biological father. In 2009, the rapper/CEO was pressed again about the photo, and said he would kiss his adoptive son and star rapper again.
Pusha T has yet to speak on "Exodus 23:1" actually being directed at Drake or Young Money. Last year after similar subliminal disses towards Drake were implied in "Don't Fuck With Me," a freestyle over Drake's "Dreams Money Can Buy," the Re-Up Gang Records artist denied the song as an attack.
