So before I could wipe the sleep out of my eyes good this morning, Twitter was in a frenzy over a new Pusha T record. Pusha T, half of The Clips, now signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label dropped a new track: Exodus 23:1. Now the biblical nerd in me immediately searched the verse to see what this track may or may not be about. The New Living Translation for Exodus 23:1 states:
“You must not pass along false rumors. You must not cooperate with evil people by lying on the witness stand.
The King James version translates:
“You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
I thought, who's passing along false rumors? Who's the liar? Who's cooperating with evildoers? Then before I could get to work, the word out was that he was low-key dissing Drake and Young Money, because of a line Drake said on the Amen track with Meek Mill:
“G.O.O.D ain’t good enough, and your hood ain’t hood enough” – Drake
Then Lil Wayne tweeted:
Fuk pusha t and anybody that love em
(Those are his typos and all) So, I listened to the track. The track itself is cool. It's not overwhelming or bad, it's just cool. But I couldn't help but pay attention to Pusha T's tone on the record. It's clear, he ain't feeling those Young Money cats. And so it begins, you already know, Weezy or Drake, or Tyga or whomever feels like it from YMCMB will respond. If I may, I'm putting my money on G.O.O.D., it's just undeniably more talent on that side. As Bernie Mac would ask, "Who you wit?"
