So apparently Pusha wasn’t taking any digs at Lil Wayne the skateboarder after all? According to an interview with HHW, the G.O.O.D. Music rep explained that it was actually Birdman he was firing shots at it. Here’s what Pusha had to say on the subject:
For as competitive as an MC that you are, you’ve decidedly backed off of responding to Lil Wayne’s diss record, “Ghoulish.” Was that just a business decision to you since Wayne and Big Sean have a record together, and Sean is your man? Why was there no response?
In all honesty it was that bad to me. “Ghoulish” was that bad to me. I don’t know like your taste particularly. Cause I feel all writers have a dope taste in music. But me personally, I think that s**t was wack and borderline disrespectful. Like, “Exodus” hurt. That Isht hurt man. Like hurt souls. That Isht had the biggest rappers in the game commenting on me immediately the day after. On twitter! Millionaires! Twitter thugging. I had millionaires twitter thugging! That’s why “Ghoulish” is beyond me. I wouldn’t dare. I couldn’t dare. Listen man i was in my bed with my girl. She looked at me and said “no, like…no! This is really bad.” [Laughs] I swear to you she was like “baby no, this can’t be it!” So you know at the end of the day it’s about good rap to me. It’s about good rap to me this s**t ain’t about like being….
So “New God Flow” was directed at Wayne and Drake?
“New God Flow” was about, in my view, something I read in a Birdman interview that I didn’t like. He said something like “G.O.O.D. Music isn’t nothing” and it had nothing to do with Wayne or Drake per se. That was Birdman saying whatever he wanted to say and that was the basis of where all of my lines came from. Everybody else was on their love of Hip-Hop s**t.
