Drake and Pusha T have been engaged in a recent war that has shocked fans and commentators alike. It all started when Pusha T dropped his new Kanye West-produced album, DAYTONA, a lean, mean collection of luxurious drug-rap bangers.
The album ends with “Infrared,” which finds the 41-year-old Push hurling insults at Drake, calling the Canadian MC out for employing ghostwriters and lacking authenticity.
Drake responded rather quickly and on the same day with a diss track of his own called “Duppy Freestyle.” Pusha T has responded this week with another highly personal diss track titled “The Story of Adidon.”
This beef seems that it will not end anytime soon. But we at Mpasho love beefs and take a look down memory lane at some of the worst in pop culture history.
Tupac and Biggie
These two greats of rap music had a beef that resulted in both ending up dead. The war started after Tupac was shot in while going to Quad recording studios that were located on Times Square.
Tupac thought he was shot with Biggie’s full awareness prompting the two to engage in a dangerous rap back and forth that resulted in their untimely deaths in 96′ and 97′.
Bridget Achieng and Mishi Dorah
The two heavyweights engaged in a brutal fight on the popular and ratchet show Nairobi Diaries. But it was Brigitte who ended up the worse of the two as she was beaten like a stray dog by her heavily built colleague.
That’s not all. Her wig was taken by Mishi and then peed on. Mishi wasn’t playing around.
Jaguar and Babu Owino
The two upstart politicians engaged in a memorable fight on parliament grounds last year. The “royal rumble” was an embarrassing affair that happened under the full glare of the public.
And some say the fight was pre-arranged by the two young in’s in order to generate publicity. They have since made up.
Jay Z and Nas
The Jay Z vs. Nas beef was a gladiatorial battle between two rap titans. For almost a decade, two of rap’s most decorated emcees went at each other’s throat. They started off with subliminal jabs and moved up to body shots.
Digs got so personal that parents had to step in. Thankfully, the battle didn’t end in tragedy like Biggie vs. 2Pac. It ended in triumph. And friendship. Jay Z and Nas would later shake hands and join forces.
But one sad story from this beef was the allegation that Jay Z had s3xual relations with Nas’ baby mama. That Jay Z was given head by Carmen Bryan in a car that Nas had bought her. Also he left his man juice in the car.
Davido and Wizkid
The two Nigerian heavyweights did not get along for many years. The two have been in a long standoff since Davido got in to music, fans creating competitive comparisons.
However, Davido has constantly held that he has no problem with Wizkid, in fact he is his greatest fan. Wizkid on the other hand been of the idea that Davido is jealous of him hence their many run ins.
The two however buried the hatchet and said that they will collaborate on a song together in the future.
