The Pusha T tour stop in Toronto would end prematurely when allegedly the Virginia Beach rapper was attacked during his performance. The Twitter users who attended the presentation on Tuesday night reported that strangers attacked him in a hurry, which caused his game to be interrupted. From the videos, it seems that security stopped the attack, but the program was reduced anyway.
Toronto is, of course, the hometown of Pusha's lyric rival, Drake, whom he spent a considerable part of the summer urging with songs like "Infrared" and "The Story Of Adidon." While Drake responded to the initial provocation of "Infrared" with his own clue, "Duppy Freestyle," Pusha's own response, "The Story Of Adidon," was thought to have ended open hostilities between the two after the revealed the existence of Drake's secret son.
As a result, Drake claimed that his retirement from the battle was due to the intervention of his Houston-based mentor and benefactor, J. Prince, who is well known for his exploits during the early emergence of the Texas Rap-A-Lot label . Records during the "wild west" of the 90s hip-hop. However, he stated that he felt that Pusha's manifest lack of respect for Drake's friend and producer, Noah "40" Shebib should have received a more forceful response than he was willing to deliver.
Meanwhile, Pusha made his own rounds explaining the battle and told Joe Budden's podcast that the information regarding Drake's son was none other than Shebib and was driven by Drake's own "Duppy" bar that referred to Virginia Williams, the then fiancee of Pusha, now wife. .
While things seemed to be cooling between the two camps, clearly Drake's hometown felt different. Drake is very much a local hero in the nicknamed "Six," where it seems that at least some of his supporters were more than willing to take up the cause, no matter how trivial the beef really is.
