There are two schools of thought when it comes to Drake's battle with Pusha-T. There are those who feel like Push made Drake bow out and return to his pop-rap lane, while there are others who credit Drake for being able to take a hit, feeling as though Push threw his best shot and it still didn't faze Drizzy.
Taking these mindsets into consideration, Snoop Dogg has decided that the bout between Drake and Pusha-T ended in a draw.
During last week's episode of his GGN YouTube series with Michael Rapaport, Snoop explained that Drake's marketing plan after taking a shot was a masterful chess move.
"The n***a made ‘Kiki do you love me’ when Pusha-T took off on him," Snoop said at the episode's 14:38 minute mark in reference to the viral craze surrounding Drake's 2018 smash "In My Feelings."
"Like you can have my head, but I’m gonna have everybody in your family and everybody in the world singing this fucking ‘Kiki do you love me.’ That’s the answer. The answer is not, 'I can’t match you lyrical wop-di-wop-woop,' but 'You can’t match me with this song that’s gonna play forever when they forget about that diss and then [at] your birthday party for your daughter in four years, guess what they’re gonna be playing? ‘Kiki do you love me?’"
Pusha-T released DAYTONA on May 25, 2018. The album was littered with shots at Drizzy including "Infrared" which took direct aim at Drake's ghostwriting accusations. Before the month was over, Drake had dropped "Duppy Freestyle" and Push revealed Drake's son on "The Story of Adidon." While this exchange sent rap into a whirlwind, Drizzy shifted the focus by revving up the rollout for Scorpion. Scorpion ended up being filled to the brim with hit records like "God's Plan," "Nice for What," and "In My Feelings."
While Snoop respects Drake's game-time decision making, he still feels like Push did what he was supposed to with "The Story of Adidon."
"Pusha-T, you did that, you scored a 10. But at the same time, his answer was a 10. So it was like a draw to me," Snoop said.
