Trap Lore Ross on “Why Pusha T Hates Lil Wayne”
UK-based hip-hop YouTuber Trap Lore Ross recently released a deep and informative look at the long and complicated feud between Lil Wayne and Pusha T.
In a February episode of N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs, the CNN rapper asked Lil Wayne to pinpoint what made their relationship go sour so many years ago. But Wayne, perhaps hoping to avoid the subject, replied with, “I swear to God, I don’t know, man.”
But HighSnobiety published an in-depth look at the history betwen the two artists, and had no problem recalling how things went south.
“In 2002, Lil Wayne and Baby featured on the remix of Clipse’s track, ‘Grindin’.’ Pusha and No Malice also featured on a Birdman song, ‘What Happened to That Boy,’ which was produced by long-time Clipse collaborators The Neptunes.”
In 2018, On Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning, Ebro Darden explained that, “The Neptunes were never paid for their work with Birdman, which resulted in Pharrell refusing to work with Birdman’s label, Cash Money Records (CMR), ever again. So when Wayne (also on CMR) later approached Pharrell asking for Billionaire Boys Club gear, he was turned down.”
With “Why Pusha T Hates Lil Wayne,” Trap Lore Ross does a great job summarizing where things stand today, and how they got there. Check it out below.
