Pusha-T Says Drake is ‘Silent on all Black Issues,’ Following Blackface Explanation

Drake, Pusha-T

Pusha-T isn’t buying Drake’s explanation of his use of blackface.

The rapper was at  Los Angeles’ Real 92.3 Thursday where he discussed the ongoing rap beef with the Canadian rapper, according to Billboard.

“You are silent on all black issues, Drake,” Pusha-T said. “You don’t stand for nothing, you don’t say nothing about nothing.”

Pusha-T used a picture of Drake in blackface for the cover of his latest track “The Story of Adidon,” where he also claims that Drake has a son that he doesn’t acknowledge.

The “Nice for What” posted on Instagram Thursday saying that the image was from a photoshoot for Too Black Guys and it was taken in 2007 and it was “a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type-cast.”

Pusha-T went on to say that Drake’s not using his platform the right way and he isn’t telling the truth.

“You have all the platform in the world. You were so passionate back then? No you weren’t. That’s number one. That’s what I know,” he said.
