Toronto, ON – Drake spent the last year mending many of his broken friendships including Meek Mill, Chris Brown, Diddy and more recently The Weeknd. One thing’s for certain he has no plans on reconciling with Pusha T. During an interview with Rap Radar released on Christmas Day (December 25), the Billboard king spoke about his beef with Push and why it won’t be coming to an end anytime soon.
“I have no desire to mend anything with that person,” declared Drake when asked about Pusha T. “That situation just went where it went, and there is no turning back. It’s not like those other situations that you mention.”
Drizzy admits he lost the rap battle to King Push, but then goes onto discrediting the Grammy-nominated rapper.
“I’ll say this: I tip my hat to the chess move. I mean, it was a genius play in the game of chess and warranted my first quote-unquote, you know, loss in the competitive sport of rapping — by choice, obviously, because I bowed out after realizing that the gap between us allowed him to drop a bomb on the world,” he said.

Drake continued, “I sleep well at night knowing I didn’t get out-barred. It was just, you know, he told the world that the biggest artist at the time has a kid that he hasn’t told you about.”
The OVO boss also revealed which part of “The Story of Adidon” hurt him more than anything else in the viral diss record.
“The part that hit me the most, which is wishing that my friend [Noah “40” Shebib] who has an illness dies — that shit, to me, is not really wavy. I’m just not with that.”
Pusha raps, “OVO 40, hunched over like he 80, tick, tick, tick/How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick.”
Drake spoke on numerous topics in the two-hour-plus interview. He discussed a possible collaboration with Benny The Butcher, how Serena Williams helped inspire him when making “Back To Back,” how Kanye West is still his favorite artist and how his relationship with former label mate Nicki Minaj changed after his beef with Meek Mill.
