Sheek Louch has applauded Pusha T for stepping away from GOOD Music amid Kanye West‘s recent controversal comments including praising Adolf Hitler.
Speaking to Vlad TV, the LOX rapper opened up about the group featuring on Ye’s 2021 DONDA album. In addition to saying he’d have never participated if Ye’s comments predated the project, Sheek had some kind words for Push when he found out he left the label.
“I’m not for it. I’m not wit none of those comments,” Sheek said about Ye. “I ain’t gon’ lie – I’m not with nothing he’s talking about right now period. I don’t give a fuck what song or what project I’m on. A lot of stuff probably wouldn’t have happened … I ain’t talking about no fucking sneaker deals or none of that shit.”
He continued: “Like say those comments was made before that – you know we wouldn’t have went out there. Nobody would have done nothing at all. I don’t know who else would have jumped on his project and all that but I know I wouldn’t have.”
“Shout out to Pusha!” Sheek Louch added. “I swear to God I never actually thought what he thought of everything. ‘Cause he was the president, right? He’s solid. Good for you, bro. I mean, you don’t gotta hate him.
“Because I’m sure they got a relationship, they know each other well – probably been through some shit more than me and you even know. You don’t gotta hate him, but dog, I can’t stand for the shit you talking right now.”
Sheek also noted that he didn’t like that Kanye has played the Black card when it came to issues regarding Kim Kardashian, but otherwise has stayed on his “white man kind of side.”
“It’s like for me, just me – it’s not no anybody else talking – I hear him do all that crazy shit and then when he talk about his beef with his baby mother, he go back to being, ‘You can’t do a Black man like this.’ He goes back to that ‘a Black man’ when he’s dealing with them and other than that he goes back to this other shit on his white man kind of side.”
Back in December, Pusha T revealed that he’d stepped down as the President of GOOD Music, seven years after he was appointed to the position. He echoed sentiments he’d made the month prior where he called Ye’s derogatory comments about Jews “disappointing,” and said he’s distanced himself due to his recent torrent of hate speech and antisemitism.
“It’s beyond that and it’s nothing to tap dance around,” Push said of the comments. “It’s wrong. Period. But to me, it’s just me and him having a difference of opinion yet again. ’Cause we done had this for years.”
He continued: “He’s not speaking to me now. If you ain’t with it, you ain’t down. And I ain’t with it. I’m not budging on that. I’m not with it. I heard about this new stuff [on InfoWars]. I don’t know. It’s something that just sort of tells me he’s not well, at the same time. I will say that. It’s going to places where it’s no way to move around it.”
Unlike Sheek Louch, longtime Kanye collaborator Consequence found Pusha’s move “disgusting.”
In an interview with The Art of Dialogue, Cons accused King Push of being disloyal to both Yeezy and the GOOD Music family.
“When I see something like that, I’m conflicted, I’m disgusted,” he said. “GOOD Music is something I helped build with my bare hands … so that’s why I’m disgusted when somebody who wasn’t there from the start and [whose] situation was compromised comes along, and then when Ye is in a situation that he talked himself into — he gotta be responsible for that, 100 percent — but we not gonna stick together?”
He added: “Whether I agree with Kanye or not, it’s not the principle of that. Pusha T done told you all this street shit, and now we doing this industry shit? Nah.”
