Pusha T has stayed in the news today by dropping a video for “Cook It Down” and revealing the artwork to his upcoming mixtape, Fear of God, but he’s about to make a few more headlines. Back when we heard a preview of Pusha T’s mixtape, we wrote about how we were surprised to hear him shout out Lil Wayne in a song. It was a big deal to us because of the somewhat ancient feud between Clipse and Weezy. It all started about four years ago when they starteddissing each otherin magazine interviews (including in an interview with Complex). The beef kinda fizzled out after that, but it always seemed like there was still bad blood between them. But that isn’t the case at all. When we got on the phone with Push, he revealed that he has completely deaded the beef with Wayne. In fact, he even told us about how he was saluting Wayne in Miami recently. Check out what he had to say.

As told to Insanul Ahmed (@Incilin)

“Ever since Lil Wayne went in to jail, that whole little stint [between me and him] is really dead and over with. I don't have any ill will towards Wayne, Cash Money, or any of them. There was definitely a time period when I felt a certain way [about him], but as of right now I don’t. That's just where I once was. I don't even like speaking on it. [On Fear of God] I actually said, ‘They had freed Weezy, congratulations.’ When I seen Wayne in Miami, I told him, ‘Congratulations on getting out of jail.’
