The Story of Adidon: Pusha T responds to Drake with scathing diss
Pusha T clapped back at Drake today with a new 3 minute 9 second long diss track called “The Story of Adidon.”
The song – which premiered on Hot 97 with Funkmaster Flex – sees The Clipse rapper riding over a JAY-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” instrumental, pulling no punches on a variety of sensitive topics. Subjects that at least a few people are going to consider below the belt.
But, as the old saying goes, “All is fair in hip-hop beefs.” Drake wasn’t exactly sweet to his former rival on the “Duppy Freestyle,” which has been streamed more than 7.5 million times on SoundCloud to date. Pusha made it clear he took extreme exception to Drizzy bringing up his fiancee on the record.
On an Instagram post alerting fans to his response, he included the message, “Virginia Williams shan’t ever be mentioned in song by ANYONE aside from me #SurgicalSummer The Story Of Adidon live in my stories…”
“The Story of Adidon” starts with personal references to the past and then shifts to present day revelations.
First, Pusha references Drake’s dad walking out on him (allegedly), and then nicely connects it to calling Drake himself a deadbeat dad. He claims Drake has a ‘hidden son’ named Adidon with nude model Sophie Brussaux, known online as ‘Sophie Knows Better.’ Her Instagram account went private shortly after the song was released to SoundCloud around 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Her Twitter page, which is just shy of 5,000 followers, has just one tweet which was made Nov. 28, 2017. The message? “Fuck Drake. Deadbeat ass dad.”
The Internet detectives are busy trying to find out everything they can about Drake’s alleged baby mama, while fans are already engaged in heated debates over which artist is better. Vulture published an article late Tuesday summarizing the events involving Ms. Brussaux:
“She was first linked to Drake when she was seen out with the rapper in early 2017. The pair were spotted having dinner on a January night in Amsterdam. And, in May of that same year, she told TMZ that she had text messages from the rapper asking her to get an abortion. At the time, a rep for Drake told TMZ, ‘If it is in fact Drake’s child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child.’ But she apparently gave birth to a son on October 24th of the same year (ahem, about nine months after that dinner, ahem) which is significant because it is also Drake’s birthday, which he was very much in LA for while his alleged child was being born in France. Since the baby’s birth, she has only shared one photo on her Instagram of the child.”
So make what you want of the claim, but this isn’t the first time blogs have discussed the possibility of Drake being a father… there’s just never been much information to go on. If this is a true claim, and it’s something they’ve been trying to keep quiet, that seems all but hopeless at this point.
The other really eye opening line in the song is the stray shot directed at Drake’s friend and producer Noah “40” Shebib, who has been open about his battle with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
“OVO 40, hunched over like he 80 tick, tick, tick
How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick”
Regardless of which side of the battle you’re on, that’s harsh as fuck.
(You can find the full lyrics below).
You have to wonder if Pusha knew tomorrow (May 30) was World MS Day when he casually references 40.
Maybe not the reference to his MS, but 40 being mentioned shouldn’t come as a surprise since he’s considered Drake’s producer. After all, Drake went at Kanye, who produced the the song that started this string of disses – “Infrared” off Pusha T’s new album, Daytona. (“How dare you put Ye in my verses?”)
They both have die hard fans riding for them, that’s for sure.
If anyone was worried about how Daytona would do with Drake shitting on Pusha T, this should get him a gang of new streams and sales. You can find it now on all major streaming services.
And we haven’t even mentioned the cover art that accompanied the track (sorry Push, we call all images that accompany new music ‘artwork’), which features a picture of Drake in black face taken by photographer David Leyes. The cover has been drawing a lot of Drake criticism on social media.
And just as we prepared to post this story, Pusha made a new Instagram post revealing that the “Adidon” artwork had been deleted from his profile by the social media company. His post showed a screenshot of a message he received from Instagram, stating a copyright infringement. Of course, Pusha fans in the comments are convinced Drake or his people had something to do with the image’s disappearance.
“We’ve removed or disables access to content you posted on Instagram because a third party reported that that content infringes or otherwise violates their rights.”
It will be really interesting to see how Drake responds to this, if at all. This isn’t just a diss track with random insults. This is a really story specific series of claims that Drake is going to need to address one way or another. People will be expecting it, at least.
His new album Scorpion is out June 28 so he might choose to focus on that, but this is becoming a more serious reptuational issue that he and his camp will likely want to re-address. That’s great news for hip-hop fans who are already showing their excitement online for the current state of the feud.
Drake followed up his “Duppy” diss with the new single “I’m Upset,” and Push closes out “Adidon” by dissing it. He claims they’re “gon’ take this slow,” suggesting he might be planning on revealing even more dirt. Time will tell.
