“I remember me and Cole would open for Hov, everyday A Star Is Born, I guess I died in the womb”

Wale drops off a new one called “Groundhog Day” produced by Jake Uno. Some people believe that the opening bars of the second verse on that new J.Cole track “False Prophets” were aimed at Wale, and while they weren’t nearly as scathing as some of the other bars on the song (widely believed to be aimed at Drake and Kanye), they certainly fall into the “airing business in public” category. Keep that in mind as you listen to “Groundhog Day” which features a direct reference to Cole and some other lines that could be construed as a response.

Pusha T Covers Complex

December 2nd, 2016

pusha-complex

Pusha T covers the new December/January issue of Complex and if the cover motif didn’t tip you off, one of the main topics covered is Blowbama’s work with movements like #SchoolsNotPrisons and activists such as dream hampton and director Ava DuVernay on the epidemic of mass incarceration in America. Speaking to writer Mychal Denzel Smith, Push speaks on the mass incarceration of folks he grew up with, responds to criticism over his signing of Desiigner to G.O.O.D Music, the election of Trump and addresses the alleged shots Drake took at him on “Two Birds, One Stone”:

“I heard something,” he says, simultaneously playful and dismissive, when I ask him again about “Two Birds, One Stone” and the Internet chatter that Drake’s lines were directed at Pusha, questioning the street bona fides of his past. “I would never, ever attribute that [song] to myself. My past is cemented. My past happened. Like slavery happened. The Holocaust happened. You can’t ever question anything that has actually happened.”
