"It's seven days if you know what I mean."
The OVO Sound co-founder shares his thoughts on "The Story Of Adidon" two years after its release.
This coming Saturday, the city of Norfolk, Va. will play host to an event featuring one of the region’s top Hip-Hop stars, a music industry veteran, and a former NBA star giving back to those in need. Pusha T, Tony Draper, and Ricky Davis have partnered together for the Feed Your City Challenge to provide relief and aid to families in the 757 hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Davis, who runs The Ricky Davis Legacy Foundation, joined forces with Draper, the founder of Houston’s Suave House Records, and G.O.O.D. Music star and Heir Wave Music Group founder Pusha T.
The trio will be working alongside Norfolk Mayor Kenny Alexander, Chief Larry D. Boone of the Norfolk Police Department, and the Economic Development Authority for the City of Norfolk.
The Feed Your City Challenge will take place on the grounds of the Military Circle Mall beginning at 12 p.n. ET. The intent of the gathering is to provide groceries and PPE supplies to those who attend the event via a contactless drive-thru lane delivery method. CDC social distancing guidelines will also be in effect and local station 103 Jamz, a media partner of the challenge, will provide the sounds.
Pusha T decided to join the effort after learning about The Ricky Davis Legacy Foundation’s work in Houston, Texas along similar lines and wanted to bring it to the city of Norfolk. The foundation intends to take the Feed The City Challenge to other cities that are in need of assistance.

It’s been a minute since the release of Jadakiss and Pusha T’s collaboration “Huntin Season” and though the record was pulled out of respect for Pop Smoke (R.I.P.) we now get some graphic visuals to the street banger.
Featuring clapped up would-be rappers on the floor of his cabin, Jadakiss styles and profiles around his hunting lodge while Pusha T roams the woods looking for new game to hunt. Is them Canadian woods? Hmmmmm…

The internet is still hype about Pusha T’s “Maybach Music VI” verse and for good reason. In a recent interview he gave more context about the viscous sixteen bars he laid for Ross.
As spotted on Complex the Virginia native spoke to Joe Budden during the latest edition of The Joe Budden Podcast. Jumpoff wasted no time in getting him to discuss the memorable feature. While the “Drug Dealers Anonymous” rapper didn’t confirm he was taking shots at Drake or Lil Wayne, his answers let us know that he is still about the “if the shoe fits” life.
When asked “why did you do that to this verse that’s not out?” he responded “that’s what we in it for man, we here to rap, bro”. “We all have to do what we do best, the next guy got to do what he does best,” he added. “At this stage of my career, you know, I mean… hey man, hey,” he chuckled.
On the track Push had several lines that could be interpreted as bait for Drizzy or TuneChi including “What a hell of a year, true colors expose/Crowns on these clowns, it’s like you colored they nose.” Ultimately Rick Ross decided to pull his appearance from the final version of Port Of Miami 2 citing that he would like to bring Pusha and Wayne together in a more genuine manner.
You can view Joe’s interview below.
Is this the work of The 6 God?
Plus, DX's reviews of Black Thought and A$ AP Rocky's new projects.
All in the name of art.
Drake definitely got the whole Hip-Hop world talking after dropping the “Duppy” diss track aimed squarely at Pusha T and Kanye West, getting in some shots most didn’t expect. King Push rested a bit to let the holiday weekend pass and returned fire with “The Story Of Adidon” and it got really personal really fast.
Rapping over Jay-Z’s “The Story Of O.J.” and using the name of the Brooklyn mogul’s late father, Pusha wasted no time in getting into it with blistering bars.
“Drug dealin’ aside, ghostwritin’ aside’Let’s have a heart-to-heart about your pride/Even though you’re multi, I see that your soul don’t look alive/The M’s count different when Baby divides the pie, wait/Let’s examine why/Your music for the past few years been angry and full of lies/I’ll start it at the home front, “I’m On One”/Dennis Graham stay off the gram, bitch I’m on one,” Pusha starts.
Pusha went for the jugular and mentioned Drake’s father Dennis Graham and his mother, Sandi Graham, making sure to mention that his father walked out on his life just as he’s allegedly walking out or not taking care of a child he fathered with Sophie Brussaux. Even Drizzy’s producer 40 caught in a foul way.
Oh yeah, it went there.
We’re posting the song below and all of the over-the-top reactions and hot takes below and on the following pages. As Pusha T said, it’s “gonna be a surgical summer” and we doubt Drake is going to let this cook.
Diddy’s making his presence known in the fresh beef between Drake and Pusha T … but it’s hard to tell who he’s rooting for. The music and liquor mogul hit up David Grutman’s STORY Nightclub in South Beach around 3:45 AM Saturday and joined Drake at his…
And posts it on Instagram.
Did y’all forget Drake had it in him? Twitter is currently going honey baked ham at the Boy’s lyrical rebuttal to Pusha T with “Duppy Freestyle.”
You know it’s real when “The Audacity,” which Drake says at the start of his tune, is trending.
And what a song it is. Drizzy served up bars coming for the necks of Yeezy and Push A Ton, but mostly for the latter. Considering what the 6 God did to Meek Mill, this should come as no surprise.
However, it must be noted that the knock on Drake was he went hard at Meek, but didn’t have that same energy for Push. Not anymore.
Also, he really submitted the invoice.
The Internet is loving it, and the reactions are priceless. If you didn’t know, Drake is really, really good at using the Internet to maximize his rap slander.
Peep the best of the best below and on the following pages.
UPDATE: Produced entirely by Kanye West.
Vegas singer JR Castro doesn’t have time for golddigging females and this one right here pretty much solidifies that. Letting the world know it’s “M.O.B.” all day, Castro enlists G.O.O.D Music rhymer Pusha T for this new one off his upcoming still-to-be-titled product. Look for that one, executive produced by none other than Timbaland, to drop sometime soon.
On August 22, the Chicago Footaction Flagship Store implemented itself on 26-28 State Street to give a city already renown for its keen fashion sense a major boost. Whether you’re a citizen or tourist, a view of the Chicago skyline while purchasing kicks couldn’t heighten the experience that much better.
All of today’s top brands such as Nike, Air Jordan, adidas, Puma, Fairplay, American Stitch, Popular Demand, New Era, Timberland and more were made instantly available to consumers fingertips and given the nature of the threads on hand, it only made sense to nab a Hip-Hop star to signify the ribbon cutting ceremony.
On the opening Saturday, Pusha T took a break from recording his long-delayed sophomore album to scoop in to grab some gear, pose for pictures and sign autographs and sneakers. Local Chi-Town artists Saba, Martin Sky, and Bop King Kemo also paid the new Chicago Footaction a visit, as did WPWX 92.3Chicago’s DJ Shaggy, who broadcasted live from the store all day. Sunday was just as festive as Twista, GLC and Katie Got Bandz all put on for their hometown by making in-store appearances.
“We are proud to have opened our largest retail location to date in such a great city as Chicago,” said Ken Side, vice president, general manager for Footaction. “Our team is looking forward to being a part of the community, offering first-class service and bringing the best assortment of lifestyle and athletic brands to style-conscious Chicagoans.”
Put the video for the Chicago Footaction Flagship launch down below and check out all the rap stars photo-ops in the gallery.

THE NEW SUPERSTARS: Rap music fired up more than 200 artists, athletes and students to get creative with Pharrell Williams and Adidas at Los Angeles’ Milk Studio on Saturday night.
Using the athletic company’s Original Superstar sneaker as a canvas, guests dug into a tote bag of tools provided by Adidas, which wanted to see how the Millennials would reinvent its signature shell toe detail. Each unique design was then digitally printed onto an actual pair of shoes and projected as the backdrop for a surprise performance by rapper Pusha T, one of the five influencers hand-picked by the multifaceted Williams.
“The goal was for Adidas to open up doors and provide a platform for young creative minds to, you know, bring their ideas into fruition and to see that it could be done,” said Williams, who enjoys an ongoing collaboration with Adidas that lets him show not only his artistic side but also his progressive views on society and culture.
“It’s just a way to be with the culture, with the kids and with the people,” Pusha T said. “We’re pushing creativity, and getting to see the youth.”
The event embodied Adidas’ fall campaign motif of creating for an audience of one, something exemplified

Pusha T has a fresh—still unseen—haircut and a new, highly anticipated album on the way. However, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper’s follow up to 2013’s My Name Is My Name, titled King Push, not be dropping in late June as has been recently reported.

One person Push has been in the lab with, besides Kanye West, is Sean “Diddy” Combs. Color us intrigued.
