Published May 30, 2018Pusha-T hit Drake where it hurts with "The Story of Adidon" last night (May 29), targeting his alleged child, his parents and even his producer Noah "40" Shebib.
After taking shots at Drake for being an alleged deadbeat dad, Pusha goes on to defend himself against Drizzy's accusations of being too old ("Still givin' you classics, that's the only thing that dates me") — and then he digs into 40.
"OVO 40, hunched over like he 80, tick, tick, tick," Pusha raps. "How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick."
Many have pointed out how savage the attack was, considering Shebib was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his early 20s. He spoke about the condition at length in this interview from 2012.
Shebib took to Twitter to retort, pointing out that today marks World MS Day and sharing a link to the MS International Federation's event page.
Coincidentally... tomorrow is World MS Day. https://t.co/5ms9IJwV86— Noah Shebib (@OVO40) May 30, 2018
UPDATE (5/30, 2 p.m. EDT): The National Multiple Sclerosis Society itself has now responded to Pusha-T's lyrics. In a statement, the organization's Eileen Curran said the following: "It's troubling to hear that a person's disability would be made fun of by others. Multiple sclerosis, which affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide, is an often misunderstood disease. People living with MS face many challenges every day, which is why it's so important to continue to raise awareness for MS so others can better understand those challenges. We at the National MS Society see this as an opportunity to raise awareness of this disease, the people who live with it, and the support that is out there — especially since today is World MS Day."
It's not the first time the OVO crew has been involved in rap beefs that have turned ugly. Drake came under fire back in 2016 for taking cheap shots at Pusha-T and Kanye West's G.O.O.D. labelmate Kid Cudi on "Two Birds, One Stone" shortly after Cudi checked himself into rehab for depression.
