The subliminal war between G.O.O.D. Music and Young Money runs deep. Following the whole Common versus Drake façade last year, Pusha T had the rap world talking about his "Exodus 23:1" track, a purported diss towards both Lil Wayne and Drake, back in May. After Wayne responded with the rather tepid "Ghoulish," which failed to prompt a response from Pusha Ton, things kind of petered out.
However, in a recent interview with Hip-Hop Wired, the G.O.O.D. Music/Clipse rapper stated that his verse on "New God Flow," the Cruel Summer track which also features Kanye West and Ghostface Killah, was directed at another YMCMB rep, Birdman—specifically in response to comments he made in an interview.
"'New God Flow' was about, in my view, something I read in a Birdman interview that I didn't like. He said something like 'G.O.O.D. Music isn't nothing' and it had nothing to do with Wayne or Drake per se," Pusha said. "That was Birdman saying whatever he wanted to say and that was the basis of where all of my lines came from. Everybody else was on their love of Hip-Hop shit."
