Drake opened up about a wide range of topics in a recent interview on Brian “B.Dot” Miller’s Rap Radar podcast, and specifically addressed his feuds with Pusha T and Kanye West, as well as being booed off stage at the Camp Flog Gnaw Festival.
He first talked about his feud with Pusha T, which erupted in 2018 after the rappers released back-and-forth diss tracks.
Drake said that he used to have a lot of respect for Pusha T, but says he doesn't believe a lot of the things Pusha raps about. “And I like to listen to guys I believe," he said, via Rolling Stone.
He also said he has“no desire to mend anything with that person," referring to Pusha T.
“I sleep well at night knowing I didn’t get out-barred… It was just, you know, he told the world that the biggest artist at the time has a kid that he hasn’t told you about. I knew, kind of, for me, it was over at that point. It wasn’t even about battle rap," he said about the diss tracks the two released.
Elsewhere, Drake said that he thinks the Pusha T feud stemming from his feud with Kanye West. He spoke about that, and said he isn't interested in mending things with West at this time.
“I think that he definitely recruited a guy [Pusha T] with a similar dislike for me no matter what he says in interviews,” Drake said. “There’s something there that bothers him deeply and, yeah, I can’t fix it for him. It just is what it is. I could never ever, ever, ever turn my back on the things that I’ve said about him in a positive light… Things have changed. I’m not just some kid that’s a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and, like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”
He also opened up about being booed off the stage at Camp Flog Gnaw after the crowd was expecting Frank Ocean, but instead got Drake.
“I was a little confused. I was kind of sitting there, going like, ‘You guys know Frank’s not here, right? You may as well get over that… let’s rock, I’m the guy, I’m the replacement. I got a couple joints if you wanna hear them.’ In hindsight, I wish I would’ve said, ‘Yo guys, Frank…’ or just broke out into, ‘A tornado flew around,'" he said.
