The tension between Young Money and G.O.O.D. Music doesn’t appear to be dying down anytime soon. The latest darts thrown between the two camps have come from Drake and Pusha T.
During the Made In America festival held over Labor Day weekend, Jay-Z brought out the G.O.O.D. Music family during his set to perform several of their songs.
During 2 Chainz’s intro he was thrown off by a missed cue or due to technical difficulties. It made for an awkward moment, but the crew quickly moved past it.
The following night during Drake’s performance he also brought out 2 Chainz. Their performance went off without a hitch, prompting to Drake to say this: "That’s how you bring out 2 Chainz."
Rolling Stone recently caught up with Pusha T and asked him if he thought Drake was dissing G.O.O.D. Music. Check out Pusha’s lengthy response below.
At the end of the day – I guess just speaking on our behalf – we don’t give a f*ck what Drake says. Like, we don’t care. In regards to us, that sh*t doesn’t matter. Like, if you want to talk about the G.O.O.D. Music today and 2 Chainz, we had a mishap, because we have a record that is performed by four different people every night of the week and everybody has different edits of it. Ye’s verse – where the beat switches up and it’s really chant-y – gets edited out of a lot of people’s sets. Just to keep the momentum of the song going and just keeping the show clean and concise. None of us was told, but Chainz wasn’t told that Ye wasn’t doing his portion of the record [at Made in America]. It was a mishap, man! I mean, f*ck! People have mishaps. But I mean, Chainz is so f*ckin’ charismatic, he just walks out. I personally would’ve just rapped his f*ckin’ verse, because I heard it, but I didn’t want to overstep my boundaries because fans didn’t know he was there. So, you know, whatever. We talked about it in the back. Chainz wasn’t bitter about it. He was just like, "I could’ve knocked it out. It could’ve been crazier had I been on time with it or had I known we were doing that edit." All of this sh*t is off the cuff, and all of us is all over the country, and we’re just coming together to do the Made in America festival. It was a thing of paying homage to this new festival. It was a great experience, it was a great look, being a part of something that Ye obviously wanted us to be a part of. It wasn’t a big production thing where we practiced this sh*t. Even I came out off-cue! I should’ve laid back a little bit, but we were rocking to it. That’s what the f*ck we do – we don’t give a f*ck. So, if that was the way you should’ve brought 2 Chainz out [laughs], then I’m glad Drake got to do it, and I’m glad that Chainz got the look, and I’m sure people were happy. Other than the shot thing, we don’t give a f*ck. We definitely ain’t thinking about no shots.
