The Pusha Ts Tournament in Toronto eventually announced too early when the Virginia Beach rapper was assumed attacked during its set-up. Twitter users participating in the competition on Tuesday night reported that unknown attackers rushed him and caused his set to be short. From the video it seems that security stopped the attack, but the show was still limited.
Toronto, of course, is the hometown of Pushas lyrical rival Drake, for which he spent a great deal of the summer with songs such as “Infrared” and “Adidon’s History.” While Drake responded to the first infusion of “Infrared” with his own song, “Duppy Freestyle,” Pusha’s own response, “The Adidon’s History,” thought to have ended the open hostilities between the two after revealing the presence of Dragon’s secret son.
In the aftermath, Drake claimed that his withdrawal from the battle was due to his mentor and Houston-based charity, J. Prince, known for his exploits during the early appearance of the Texas label Rap-A-Lot Records under the ” wild west “90’s of hip-hop. He claimed, however, that he felt Pusha’s obvious respect for Dragon’s friend and producer Noah “40” Shebib should have been met with a more powerful response than he was willing to deliver.
At the same time, Pusha made his own rounds that declared beat and told Joe Budd’s podcast that the information about Drakes son came from none other than Shebib himself and was asked by Drake’s own “Duppy” barre referring to Virginia Williams, Pusha’s Engagement, nuhustru.
Although it seemed cold between the two camps, Drake’s hometown felt distinctly different. Drake is very much a hometown hero in the lovingly dubbed “Six”, where it appears that at least some of his supporters were more than willing to raise the cause, no matter how trivial rap steak is.
