Rapper Pusha T dropped a bomb yesterday (May 29) when he revealed, in a scathing diss track released as part of his reignited beef with fellow rhymer Drake, that the so-called 6ix God is apparently hiding an illegitimate baby. Now, the Bronx-born artist has gone on record to claim that Drake has plans to use his supposed son to peddle athletic gear for Adidas.
“Allegedly, his [Drake’s] new line on Adidas is called Adidon, which is named after Adonis, his son,” Pusha told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club this morning (May 30). “But we couldn’t know about your child until you started selling sweatsuits and sneakers?”
Pusha, who is president of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music record label, first referenced Drake’s alleged baby in “The Story of Adidon”, a merciless three-minute number that comes for the Toronto rapper’s mom, dad, and longtime producer-collaborator Noah “40” Shebib, among others. In it, Pusha—real name Terrence LeVarr Thornton—asserts that Drake—real name Aubrey Drake Graham—has a secret son with “Sophie”, a woman that Internet sleuths have since identified as ex–porn star Sophie Brussaux.
Going for the jugular, Pusha also claims that Drake is an absolute deadbeat of a dad and that Adonis “deserves more than an Adidas press run”:
Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother
Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her
A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap
We talkin' character, let me keep with the facts
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home
Deadbeat mothafucka playin' border patrol, ooh
Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s real
Love that baby, respect that girl
Forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world
No collabs between Drake and Adidas have been confirmed, though rumours that the rapper would swap his endorsement of Jordan Brand for a deal with the German sportswear label began swirling earlier this year when he was pictured in numerous social-media posts rocking three-stripe threads.
If Pusha’s lines are true—it’s possible that G.O.O.D. founder West, who is signed to Adidas, provided intel—then this dirty laundry would definitely complicate what was bound to be a very high-profile Adidon launch. “Who rolls out their child with a sweatsuit?” said Pusha. “Like, get outta here. What you doing here?”
“The Story of Adidon”, which features an unaltered image of Drake in blackface as its cover art, was unleashed in response to “Duppy Freestyle”, a diss track written by Drake that mentions Pusha’s fiancée by name and questions the authenticity of Pusha’s drug-dealing past and persona, among other digs.
That recording, released on Saturday (May 26), was itself a clapback to Pusha’s “Infrared”, the final song on the rapper’s latest studio album, DAYTONA, in which he calls attention to Drake’s alleged use of a ghostwriter. The artists’ long-simmering feud dates back to 2011, when Pusha appeared to take lyrical shots at Drake, who was signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment at the time. Prior to that, Pusha sparred on-and-off with Lil Wayne when the former accused the latter of jacking his steeze. (No, really.)
Drake has yet to respond to Pusha’s claims with either a statement or bars of his own. Meanwhile, Pusha has told The Breakfast Club that he’s prepared to fire back with “content” he’s saving for later. “It’s calculated, man,” he said. “You gotta live a calculated life, that’s it.”
Pray for the 6ix God, y’all. Only Nardwuar can save him now.
