Pusha T: ‘New God Flow’ Lyrics Were A Response To Birdman Diss
Lil Wayne previously released the diss track ‘Ghoulish’, which heard him say ‘f**k Pusha T and everybody that love him’ as he believed that Pusha indirectly dissed him in his track ‘Exodus 23:1’. Now, Pusha T has revealed that his verse on ‘New God Flow’ was him addressing YMCMB’s boss, Birdman…
Pusha said when he heard Birdman put G.O.O.D Music down, he couldn’t take the diss lying down, unlike his team, who only care about the music: "I will not be disrespected and anyone I stand next to won't be disrespected. I know the good intentions of my crew. They ain't nothing like me. They ain't like that they really just about their music. I take things a certain way. I take interviews in magazines personal and s**t, when you say, 'G.O.O.D Music ain't nothing.' Like, I take s**t like that sensitive."
He continued: “’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."
Pusha said that although Birdman’s jab was also a dig at Kanye West, the ‘Watch The Throne’ boss is too high in his career to respond to criticism or disses: "Some people are at a level in their career... like, 'Ye is at a level in his career where he shouldn't even respond.
"Like, he shouldn't even hear a shot. I don't know if he hear shots or he even pays attention to it. I'm petty."
