Drake Returns To Instagram W/ First Posts Since Pusha-T Feud, Drops New “I’m Upset” Video & Announces Scorpion Release Date
OVO Sound boss Drake has returned. The hip-hop heavyweight is back on his music grind following a publicized hiatus from the spotlight after engaging in a nasty Pusha-T feud.
Drizzy hopped on Instagram with his first posts since May 26. The 6 God blessed fans with the visual treatment to his recently released “I’m Upset” single.
This week, Drake’s rap rival Pusha-T reacted to rumors about the 6 God possibly having a career-ending diss record in the stash.
“You know, I don’t know. I just feel like if there was something that was beneficial for either of those two guys [Drake or J. Prince], they would do it. I think they’re into doing anything that’s beneficial for them. [Do I think it’s a bluff?] I don’t want to call them scared. I just want to say that they’re thinking. They’re doing what’s best for them. … Yeah. I felt like the whole idea of a battle—I don’t know what was gained or what was lost. … It’s different because there’s a lot of sympathy and compassion and things like that I didn’t know existed. That’s why it’s not even fun to me anymore.” (GQ)
“Power” star Joseph “Tommy” Sikora recently talked to SOHH about the epic Pusha/Drake battle and questioned if Drizzy had a game-changing diss track.
“Tommy would lean toward Pusha-T in the feud. I think. Just lyrically Pusha’s bringing it. As Joseph, I can’t see Drake coming up with something in response that’s going to be a career-ender for Pusha. Pusha’s been on-point. With people saying, ‘These guys are going for each other. They’re gunning,’ I think there’s something to be said about a classic rivalry battle going on that actually puts people to the next level and challenges people and I kind of applaud both of them for being real emcees. I’m enjoying watching it from the sidelines.” (SOHH)
Last week, Pusha-T announced their short-lived rap feud had come to an abrupt stop.
“I don’t even know. I don’t know what was lost or what was gained,” Pusha said when asked what fans are supposed to have learned from the rap battle. “These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with. … These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with.” (Vanity Fair)
