Rumours quickly began to swirl citing Pusha T’s beef with Toronto’s own Drake being at the centre of the Tuesday night incident. The Virginia-based rapper intimated that someone was “paid” to start to ruckus.
Pusha T’s swapping of diss tracks with Drake made headlines this past spring. Pusha T effectively silenced Drake for a spell via a blistering track titled “The Story of Adidon,” which alluded to a secret love child Drake had with porn star Sophie Brussaux. Drake confirmed that he had a son on his song “Emotionless,” from his June release Scorpion.
