Pusha T to Drake Following Blackface Statement: ‘You Are Silent on All Black Issues
On Wednesday night, Drake issued a statement about the photo of him in blackface that Pusha T recently shared, explaining that the photo was from a project he was part of in 2007. However, Drake’s explanation hasn’t swayed Pusha T’s opinion of the Toronto rapper. Pusha stopped by Big Boy’s Neighborhood on LA’s 92.3 early Thursday morning (May 31) to share his thoughts on the statement.
“That doesn’t change my view at all… You are silent on all black issues, Drake…. You don’t stand for nothing, you don’t say nothing about nothing,” Pusha told the hosts. “You have all the platform in the world. You were so passionate back then? No, you weren’t. That’s number one. That’s what I know.”
Aside from accusing Drake of fathering a secret child with a former porn star and name-dropping the “God’s Plan” rapper’s parents, Pusha also called out Drake for struggling with his biracial identity, rapping, “Confused, always felt you weren’t black enough/ Afraid to grow it ’cause your ‘fro wouldn’t nap enough.”
According to Drake, the photo Pusha used for “The Story of Adidon” cover art was from “a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type cast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”
