Drake Is Out To Break Pusha T With Words & Stones (Audio)
Last week, Pusha T took his latest shots at Drake in “H.G.T.V.” A byproduct of a longstanding beef between The Clipse and Lil Wayne/Cash Money, the President of G.O.O.D. Music knocked one of Kanye’s other friends and collaborators, seemingly poking fun about Drake’s beef with Puff Daddy.
“Two Birds, One Stone” is Drake’s own laugh at Pusha’s expense. The first look from a new project (see below) is the top-selling Rap artist of 2016 pulling the Clipse co-founder’s card, without ever saying his name. There are some other Rap figures apparently hit in the buffet of bars—collateral damage. Birdman, Joe Budden, and Kid Cudi are some of the nameless targets—in the case of the latter two, who have spoken out against the VIEWS observation deck architect.
In the record, Drake shows solidarity with Lil Wayne in his fight over royalties (many, which pertain to Drake sales) with Cash Money Records’ founders. “Free C5, how the fuck we got the boss waiting,” raps Drizzy, referring to Tha Carter V. He also appears to warn recent MCs who dissed him (Pusha T, and another G.O.O.D. family member in Kid Cudi) when he spits, “Two birds, one stone, my aim is amazing.” Later, he goes at Pusha’ with: “But really it’s you with all the drug dealer stories / That’s gotta stop though / You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo / If you ask me though you ain’t lining in the trunk with kilo’s / You bagging weed with all your niggas watching Pacino / Like ‘This is what we need to be on,’ but never went live / You middle man in this shit, you were never those guys.”

This is the first single from More Life, the name of Drake’s anticipated second 2016 project. According to the Drake’s testimony on his show—per 2DopeBoyz, don’t call this one an album. Instead, Drizzy promises to give Heads a “playlist” of new music:
Perhaps in the streaming platform era, that will become the new name for mixtape? If anyone can influence a conventional piece of jargon so big, it’d be Aubrey Drake Graham—with his father on the artwork.
Kendrick Lamar, DMX, Kanye West, and Jay Z have all released multiple projects in the same 12-month span.
