Drake praises Pusha T's diss track "chess move," still thinks someone should punch him "in the fucking face"

As with so many places where entertainment and emotion intersect, rap beefs exist in a weird, semi-real space. On the one hand, they’re pure marketing moves—a way for two performers to raise each other’s profiles, show off their lyrical cleverness, and hopefully sell a few extra albums. But they’re also often the…

31-year-old Drake apparently texts 14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown with dating advice

Speaking with Access Hollywood at the Emmys, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown revealed that she recently became friends with Drake, adding that he texts her with advice “about boys.” This may seem cute, since they’re both famous and it’s fun when celebrities are friends, except Drake is a 31-year-old man and…

Over the weekend, we reported that Spotify users had already streamed 882 years worth of Drake’s new album Scorpion, with some of the tracks’ play counts getting well into the 9-digit area. But that’s not to say that everyone on the streaming platform is loving this new all-Drake-all-the-time lifestyle. Some users on…

People have already streamed 882 years' worth of Drake's new album on Spotify

Heck, maybe honesty really is the best policy: Drake’s new album Scorpion—in which he openly acknowledges the son former beefmate Pusha T accused him of hiding on a recent diss track, among other topics—has just smashed Spotify’s record for most streams in a single day.

Drake staged a sex-and-puke-filled Degrassi reunion for his latest Scorpion video

Nothing says “Please stop talking about diss tracks, and any accusations of fatherhood they might contain about me” like a little nostalgia, puke, and sex, right? That seems to be the guiding philosophy of Drake’s latest video for his upcoming album Scorpion—out June 29—that sees young Aubrey Graham revisit his old…

The feud between Drake and Pusha T might really be over already 

Kanye West may not be God, but nobody can deny that he’s just about as close as we’re ever going to get. On Saturday, he descended to our mortal realm to try and break up the feud between Drake and Pusha T—though “feud” is a little generous considering that Drake essentially brought Socker Boppers to a knife fight…

Noted peacemaker and unifying figure Kanye West thinks this Drake / Pusha T feud has gone too far

Clearly worried that all this online drama, outsized public egotism, and needless divisiveness will distract people from the important things in life—i.e., the life and antics of one Kanye West—the Ye rapper is now attempting to put his foot down to stop the feud between his frequent collaborator Pusha T and Canadian…

Pusha-T does not feel even the slightest bit sorry, in case you were wondering

Last night, Pusha-T released one of the most caustic, personal diss tracks ever conceived, running rough-shod through Drake’s parents’s divorce, his ethnicity, his alleged illegitimate child, the health of his friend longtime producer Noah “40" Shabib, and a whole lot more. It was low blow after low blow, and released…

Pusha T goes scorched earth with his latest Drake diss track 

There’s no point to a polite diss track; after all, nobody’s tuning into a rap feud to hear two guys talk about how much they respectfully disagree with the other guy’s position, and hope they can part as friends. Still, there’s a certain difference between gleefully offering up a “fuck you” to a rival, and going…
