Kanye West and best man Pharrell Williams were in attendance.
The tour kicks off on July 31 at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.
"He said, 'You will understand when my project comes out.'"
Kanye West says a lot of things. Your MAGA hat wearing favorite rapper took to Twitter to suggest that the beef between his G.O.O.D. Music label President Pusha T and Drake has been deaded.
“I’ve never been about beef I’m about love lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now,” tweeted Yeezy on Saturday (June 2).
So far, it’s been radio silence from Drake after Pusha Tea dropped “The Life of Adidon,” besides a statement trying to explain that ill-thought blackface photo shoot.
While Yeezy was basically a victim of collateral damage, the Pusha vs Drake beef has been sizzling for years (remember “The swag don’t match the sweaters?”). A passive-aggressive tweet won’t stop it.
J Prince is a certified triple OG and that was made evident over the weekend as it relates to the apparently now-defunct Pusha T and Drake beef. The Rap-A-Lot Records founder put in a call to Drizzy and told him not to respond further to his Virginia rival.
With rumors on the Internet that Drake had a reply in the can for “The Story Of Adidon,” a blistering track where Push alleged Drake fathered a child with former soft-core porn actress Sophie Brussaux, Prince has seen enough. The Houston native spoke with DTLR Radio personalities DJ Reddz and Fadam Got Da Juice, saying in the interview that things have gone too far
Citing that what Pusha engaged in with the track was “pig men mentality” by going after Drake’s parents and his ailing producer Noah “40” Shehib, Prince said that for Drake to respond would be giving in to the lowest part of himself and suggested he move on.
While few would question the directions and motives of J Prince considering his many power moves in both business and the streets, some might wonder if Drake lost this war of words due to the damaging attack of Pusha T. For now, all eyes are tuned towards Drake’s upcoming Scorpion album and a summer tour but now with this beef and its abrupt end hanging over his head.

UPDATE: Drake is setting the record straight on one topic featured in the diss track war. On Wednesday evening, the rapper took to Instagram Stories and explained the controversial photo that is…

All in the name of art.
"I ain't ask for none of this, Fuck this shit man," the Atlanta rapper quipped on his new song "Destiny (Freestyle)."
Drake definitely got the whole Hip-Hop world talking after dropping the “Duppy” diss track aimed squarely at Pusha T and Kanye West, getting in some shots most didn’t expect. King Push rested a bit to let the holiday weekend pass and returned fire with “The Story Of Adidon” and it got really personal really fast.
Rapping over Jay-Z’s “The Story Of O.J.” and using the name of the Brooklyn mogul’s late father, Pusha wasted no time in getting into it with blistering bars.
“Drug dealin’ aside, ghostwritin’ aside’Let’s have a heart-to-heart about your pride/Even though you’re multi, I see that your soul don’t look alive/The M’s count different when Baby divides the pie, wait/Let’s examine why/Your music for the past few years been angry and full of lies/I’ll start it at the home front, “I’m On One”/Dennis Graham stay off the gram, bitch I’m on one,” Pusha starts.
Pusha went for the jugular and mentioned Drake’s father Dennis Graham and his mother, Sandi Graham, making sure to mention that his father walked out on his life just as he’s allegedly walking out or not taking care of a child he fathered with Sophie Brussaux. Even Drizzy’s producer 40 caught in a foul way.
Oh yeah, it went there.
We’re posting the song below and all of the over-the-top reactions and hot takes below and on the following pages. As Pusha T said, it’s “gonna be a surgical summer” and we doubt Drake is going to let this cook.
Pusha T‘s DAYTONA is still very much front of mind for many fans, despite the shot from Drake and the “Duppy” diss track. While Push addressed the track by quoting one of the bars, he’s dodging the jabs and instead quoted himself while bigging up Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.
As heard on DAYTONA‘s “Infrared,” Pusha T opens up the verse saying, “Believe in myself and the Coles and Kendricks/Let the sock puppets play in their roles and gimmicks” as he went for self on the album’s final track. Push quoted this portion of the verse in a tweet from Kendrick Lamar and thanked him for throwing support behind his new project, which has passed most critical high marks thus far.
This proves to be rather interesting as there was some chatter than K-Dot and Drizzy had some unspoken beef and with the Compton lyricist bigging up DAYTONA, could there be more smoke on the horizon? Stay tuned.
Still waiting on that response though, King Push.
Diddy’s making his presence known in the fresh beef between Drake and Pusha T … but it’s hard to tell who he’s rooting for. The music and liquor mogul hit up David Grutman’s STORY Nightclub in South Beach around 3:45 AM Saturday and joined Drake at his…
That didn’t take very long at all. Less than 24 hours after Pusha T set the Internet on fire with his new album, Daytona, that features bars aimed at Drake, the 6 God has already responded.
Drizzy just dropped “Duppy Freestyle,” and he wants all the smoke.
If you’ve been under a rock, Pusha’s track “Infrared” took multiple shots at Drake and his use of ghostwriters, per usual. Push confirmed to The Breakfast Club that the retort was due to Drake’s “Two Birds One Stone” from a couple of years back.
Now it seems like Push put the battery in Drizzy’s back. The Toronto rapper is back in rappity rap mode.
“I could never have a Virgil in my circle and hold him back ’cause he makes me nervous/I wanna see my brothers flourish to a higher purpose/You n*ggas leeches and serpents /I think it’s good that now the teachers are learning,” spit Drake (that was for Ye).
He added (and this is for Push), “Your brother said it was your cousin then him then you, so you don’t rap what you did, you just rap what you knew/Don’t be ashamed there’s plenty n*ggas that do what you do, there’s no malice in your heart, you an approachable dude.”
Oh it’s on now.
Pusha T proves he will beef with Drake and Lil Wayne forever on ‘Infrared.’
And posts it on Instagram.
Did y’all forget Drake had it in him? Twitter is currently going honey baked ham at the Boy’s lyrical rebuttal to Pusha T with “Duppy Freestyle.”
You know it’s real when “The Audacity,” which Drake says at the start of his tune, is trending.
And what a song it is. Drizzy served up bars coming for the necks of Yeezy and Push A Ton, but mostly for the latter. Considering what the 6 God did to Meek Mill, this should come as no surprise.
However, it must be noted that the knock on Drake was he went hard at Meek, but didn’t have that same energy for Push. Not anymore.
Also, he really submitted the invoice.
The Internet is loving it, and the reactions are priceless. If you didn’t know, Drake is really, really good at using the Internet to maximize his rap slander.
Peep the best of the best below and on the following pages.
It'll only feature seven tracks.
With Kanye West deals with his MAGA demons it seems like it’s on Pusha T to put G.O.O.D. Music on his back and keep whatever’s left of the label’s their reputation afloat.
Joining Don Q for the clip to “Words of Wisdom” the two rappers get their grown man on and play for high stakes at an underground casino where the money stacks are as thick as the female company they keep.
CeeLo Green meanwhile gets in the kitchen and shows a live audience crowd how to cook a delicious looking cake in the visual for “Brick Road.” He really cook that or nah?

This makes all those philosophical tweets worth it. Today (April 19) via Twitter, Kanye West announced the release dates of albums from himself, Pusha T and a joint project with Kid Cudi.
Yeezy’s album is apparently just seven songs, for now, and will be out June 1.
Then Yeezy announced that just a week later him and Cudi are dropping a joint album called Kids See Ghost. Besides being the name of the album, that’s the name of their group.
Also, Teyana Taylor is dropping an album on June 22.
And last but not least (as far tweet chronology not dates), G.O.O.D. Music President Pusha T will be blessing the massed with a new album on May 25.
Needless to say, rap Twitter is beside itself. Charlamagne Tha God got a listen to the album, but he isn’t giving up much intel.
See more on the flip.
Pusha T‘s biggest fan is Kanye West. Yesterday (Sept. 3), during Push A Ton’s Made In America set, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper revealed Yeezy is producing his entire new album, but that comes with consequences.
According to Push, West has scrapped the album, King Push, three times due to his renowned perfectionism.
“I done done this album like three times,” Push told the crowd of “family. “Like [Kanye] come in and pick all the beats and sh*t and then he’d hear the beats, and he’d scrap ’em and say, ‘I can do better.’ He done done that sh*t like thee times. These past two months we’ve just been locking in—day for day, night for night—getting this album perfect for y’all.”
Push and Yeezy have also been in the lab, including in Wyoming, working on the latter’s Turbo Grafx 16 album.

Vegas singer JR Castro doesn’t have time for golddigging females and this one right here pretty much solidifies that. Letting the world know it’s “M.O.B.” all day, Castro enlists G.O.O.D Music rhymer Pusha T for this new one off his upcoming still-to-be-titled product. Look for that one, executive produced by none other than Timbaland, to drop sometime soon.
On August 22, the Chicago Footaction Flagship Store implemented itself on 26-28 State Street to give a city already renown for its keen fashion sense a major boost. Whether you’re a citizen or tourist, a view of the Chicago skyline while purchasing kicks couldn’t heighten the experience that much better.
All of today’s top brands such as Nike, Air Jordan, adidas, Puma, Fairplay, American Stitch, Popular Demand, New Era, Timberland and more were made instantly available to consumers fingertips and given the nature of the threads on hand, it only made sense to nab a Hip-Hop star to signify the ribbon cutting ceremony.
On the opening Saturday, Pusha T took a break from recording his long-delayed sophomore album to scoop in to grab some gear, pose for pictures and sign autographs and sneakers. Local Chi-Town artists Saba, Martin Sky, and Bop King Kemo also paid the new Chicago Footaction a visit, as did WPWX 92.3Chicago’s DJ Shaggy, who broadcasted live from the store all day. Sunday was just as festive as Twista, GLC and Katie Got Bandz all put on for their hometown by making in-store appearances.
“We are proud to have opened our largest retail location to date in such a great city as Chicago,” said Ken Side, vice president, general manager for Footaction. “Our team is looking forward to being a part of the community, offering first-class service and bringing the best assortment of lifestyle and athletic brands to style-conscious Chicagoans.”
Put the video for the Chicago Footaction Flagship launch down below and check out all the rap stars photo-ops in the gallery.

THE NEW SUPERSTARS: Rap music fired up more than 200 artists, athletes and students to get creative with Pharrell Williams and Adidas at Los Angeles’ Milk Studio on Saturday night.
Using the athletic company’s Original Superstar sneaker as a canvas, guests dug into a tote bag of tools provided by Adidas, which wanted to see how the Millennials would reinvent its signature shell toe detail. Each unique design was then digitally printed onto an actual pair of shoes and projected as the backdrop for a surprise performance by rapper Pusha T, one of the five influencers hand-picked by the multifaceted Williams.
“The goal was for Adidas to open up doors and provide a platform for young creative minds to, you know, bring their ideas into fruition and to see that it could be done,” said Williams, who enjoys an ongoing collaboration with Adidas that lets him show not only his artistic side but also his progressive views on society and culture.
“It’s just a way to be with the culture, with the kids and with the people,” Pusha T said. “We’re pushing creativity, and getting to see the youth.”
The event embodied Adidas’ fall campaign motif of creating for an audience of one, something exemplified
Azekel makes the case that the “B” in R&B could very well stand for “British” as the singer/producer who hails from the United Kingdom comes off smoother than James Bond with twice the swag on “Mad About The Boy” off his forthcoming EP, Raw, Vol.1.
Back in the states, Pusha T expands his horizons and dabbles in pop music pairing his talents along with singer, Rozzi Crane in the bass driven “Psycho.”

Pusha T blasts Virginia Beach sports lounge, Venue 112 following an ill encounter this week.
Pusha T has a fresh—still unseen—haircut and a new, highly anticipated album on the way. However, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper’s follow up to 2013’s My Name Is My Name, titled King Push, not be dropping in late June as has been recently reported.
According to Hits Daily Double, Push’s new album is scheduled to be in stores on June 30 courtesy of Def Jam Records. But alas, the “Lunch Money” rapper’s press reps tell Hip-Hop Wired that that album’s proper release date it still TBA.
One person Push has been in the lab with, besides Kanye West, is Sean “Diddy” Combs. Color us intrigued.
MTV News caught up with Pusha T and Virgil Abloh at the 10th anniversary of A Bathing Ape’s NYC store.
