Yesterday we got a snippet of a new Ludacris track, plus reports that the full song includes a verse from Pusha T that takes shots at Lil Wayne and Birdman, and Push confirms that he is most definitely throwing some darts.
“With your baby mama f—ing every rapper in the business, N—as saying you was better when the drugs was in your system,” Pusha spits on the track. “Now your crack swag gone ever since you came from prison Got you tweeting all stupid, is you skatin’, is you dissin,’ Found out your ghost leased and your phantom just rented, Won’t leave it in your name like Pac when he went missing, Makaveli lives on so I’m riding on you bitches.”
Pusha confirmed to Vibe that those jabs were definitely aimed at the YMCMB camp. “It’s new and was for Luda’s album,” Pusha told Vibe, explaining his motivation for the verse. “Oh, because it’s a Swizz beat. You got to blame Swizz. See, when Wayne got a Swizz beat… with the “Ghoulish” track; he got busy, well, he tried to.”
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper explained that Ludacris wanted him to change the verse when he realized it could potentially stir up beef, but he wasn’t having it, adding that there’s a reason he doesn’t mention his targets by name. “I play by old school rules. I play by the fundamentals and foundation of what hip-hop was based on,” he said.
