- Young Thug has criticised Pusha T for dissing Drake on an unreleased track by Pop Smoke
- The track, unofficially titled Paranoia, features guest verses from rappers Pusha T, Young Thug and Gunna
- Young Thug expressed that he doesn't "respect" Pusha's verse because him and Gunna have nothing to do with Pusha and Drake's beef
Young Thug has slammed Pusha T for dissing Drake on an unreleased Pop Smoke track.
The joint, unofficially titled Paranoia, features guest verses from Pusha T, Young Thug and Gunna.
Young Thug took to Instagram to express that he didn’t agree with Pusha T using the track as an opportunity to diss Drake.
"I don’t respect the Pusha T verse on the song with me and Gunna cause I don’t have nun to do with y'all beef nor does Gunna, and if I knew that was about him I would’ve made changes on our behalf. This rapper's sh*t so gay."
According to nme.com, Pusha T’s verse reportedly takes a swing at Drake, continuing a years-long beef between the two rappers.
Pusha T responded to Young Thug on his own Instagram story afterwards, saying he doesn’t need his respect.
“Don’t feel bad, nobody knew what the verse was about. The label heads that stopped it didn’t even know. They only assume because he (presumably Drake) told them! The same way he told about the Ross ‘Maybach 6’ verse."
The ‘Maybach 6’ verse in question refers to the Rick Ross track titled Maybach Music VI, released last year, nme.com reports.
Pusha T also "demanded" Pop Smoke’s manager Steven Victor take the song off the deluxe version of the album "to avoid any confusion that may take away from this amazing body of work".
Still on US music news, Briefly.co.za reported that T.I took to social media to challenge 50 Cent to a Verzuz rap battle.
The About The Money hitmaker wants to go hit for hit with the In Da Club rapper.
T.I recorded a video and posted it online for 50 Cent to see on his birthday.
"For your birthday, I offer you a challenge, sir. Pull your a** up with 20 of your records, man. Sit across from me, man. And get this work, man."
T.I said 50 could bring his whole G-Unit crew and Eminem and Dr Dre.
