Canada Day came early this year! Yesterday Drake dropped the video for his latest song, “I’m Upset,” a video that has surely made any major fan of Degrassi: The Next Generation anything but upset. If Drake was looking for a good way to temporarily distract anyone who was still thinking about that messy beef with Pusha-T, this is it.
Drake likes big butts and he cannot lie. If there’s any common thread that runs through his list of famous exes, it’s that they were all thic and juicy. Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna; they all have notably well formed sweet potatoes. And Drake’s alleged secret baby momma Sophie Brussaux does them one better with her sizable Easter hams. As Hot New Hip Hop notes, Drake’s stated preference is that he “likes my girls BBW”, as he rapped on Nicki’s track “Only”. So maybe it should be no surprise that Drake is dealing with the devastating “L” handed to him by Pusha T, by falling into the folds of an extraordinary woman. Drake was spotted with a new lady friend in Toronto who was packing more rear heat than a Ford Pinto with a trunk full of dynamite.
Pusha-T has been going after Drake. He released some embarrassing blackface pictures of Drake, and dropped a diss track accusing Drake of being a deadbeat dad to a secret son. Drake has only responded to the blackface pictures. According to Pusha-T, Drake was waiting to tell everyone about his alleged son because he was planning on using the reveal as publicity for his upcoming Adidas collaboration.
This week, a very pissed-off Pusha-T got a little revenge on Drake by diggging up old pictures of him in blackface. The internet had some theories about them, the main being that it was all for a photoshoot for a clothing company. Drake has crawled out of whatever embarrassment hole he’s been hiding in to offer up some much-needed context.
The last time we dealt with Kanye-related drama, his wife Kim Kardashian was fighting with his Chicago youth charity. This time the Kanye-adjacent drama involves the recipient of Kanye’s $85,000 gift of tasteless album cover art, Pusha-T, and Drake. And it’s boiled over to the point of Pusha-T throwing out a deadbeat dad accusation.
Drake has inadvertently instigated a feud between Kim Kardashian West and the rapper Rhymefest over a charity Kanye West and Rhymefest founded called Donda’s House. Well, it’s called Donda’s house right now, but they are about to change their name in order to distance themselves from the house of Kardashian-West. Kardashian-West, you say? Well there goes the neighborhood.
