Ever since since Pusha T released his controversial attack on Drake and Lil Wayne “Exodus 23:1,” fans have been gearing up for a battle royale between G.O.O.D. Music and YMCMB. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, Young Money president Mack Maine weighs in on the situation.
Mack explains that he doesn’t foresee the back-and-forth between Pusha and Wayne sparking a crew-wide beef between the respective camps. He even commended G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean for his work with Lil Wayne on the first single off Weezy’s I Am Not A Human Being 2 “My Homies Still.”
“It’s not like [a YMCMB/G.O.O.D. Music beef]. I don’t see it like that,” explained Maine. “That’s not what we in the game for. If it ever came to that, God forbid, that’s a whole different story, but right now we’re just tryin’ to get paper, we’re just tryin’ to get money, man, and make good music. And that was a great song [‘My Homies Still’ with Big Sean] that was made before that situation happened, and I’m not ’bout to go into the studio and tell Wayne to take [Big Sean] off. Wayne not tryna take him off – he’s good peeps, he’s fam…he killed [the song]. I think that’s big for him. We’re always collabin’ with people and he earned it, he earned his way. He’s been handling his weight on different tracks, and it’s his time.”
Of Pusha and Wayne’s tiff, however, Mack compared the situation to swatting a fly. He explained that Pusha put Weezy F. in a position where he had to respond with “Ghoulish,” but that he hopes the feud is dead after this.
“In a nutshell, if a gnat or a fly keep flyin’ around you, eventually you gonna swing and swat it and just get it out the way,” he said. “Sometimes you swat it and the gnat dies; sometimes it just go away…you can keep flyin’, just fly somewhere else, though. We chillin.'”
