The record, which closes Push’s upcoming album, includes a not-so-subtle shot at Drake: “It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin,” Push raps.

As most of you know, Quentin Miller is the name of Pusha’s former collaborator and Drake’s alleged ghostwriter. The G.O.O.D. Music president addressed the line during a recent interview with Genius, claiming it was his response to Drizzy’s “Two Birds, One Stone” track, in which he is believed to have taken a shot at Push.

“But really it’s you with all the drug dealer stories that’s gotta stop though/You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo,” Drake rapped in the Kanye West-produced record.

On Thursday, Pusha reiterated his reasoning behind the 6 God diss during an appearance on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning, claiming it was now his turn to question the Toronto rappers’ authenticity.

“I feel like the Drake thing, more recently, was about the ‘Two Birds One Stone’ record. A lot of talk about the record, or whatever the case may be,” Push said at around the 2:55 mark in the video above. “I guess, just speaking his truth, questioning my validity to the streets and so on and so forth within that verse. It’s fine. That’s what it was. But if we’re gonna question things … it’s my turn to question.”

Ebro went on to ask Push if his issue with Drake was “real street beef” or simply “rappers doing rapper shit.”

“Yeah, for sure. In response to ‘Two Birds One Stone,’ I feel like he was doing his rapper thing. It’s ‘Infrared’ time, so I’m gonna do my rapper thing,” Push explained.

Push also spoke about the album’s “What Would Meek Do?” cut, the reason behind the seven-song tracklist, his rumored tour with Nas, as well as Kanye’s controversial political views.
