One song from Pusha T’s new album Daytona is hoping to stir something up. It’s called “Infared,” and on it Pusha takes aim at Cash Money Records, dissing Birdman and Lil Wayne while also dropping a line about “Quentin Miller” and ghostwriting—a shot at Drake that references the roots of his beef with Meek Mill.
Pusha T’s beef with Drake started through his longstanding issues with Lil Wayne. Back in 2006, Clipse felt that Wayne was copying their style with his Vibe cover from that year, as well as in the video for “Hustler Musik,” in which Wayne is decked out in the BAPE. Clipse, along with Pharrell, made the Japanese streetwear brand fashionable in the mid-2000s. It didn’t help things when Wayne, asked about this by Complex in 2006, responded to the claims saying, “I don’t see niggas like that. You talking to the best. Talk to me like you’re talking to the best. I don’t see no fuckin’ Clipse. Come on man. Weezy, man. They had to do a song with us to get hot, B. ‘What Happened To That Boy?’ C’mon B. Don’t do that, dog.”
