Ice Cube Has A Harsh Reality Check For Drake Amidst Ugly Feud With Pusha T — Video

Everyone has an opinion on the Drake-Pusha T beef, it seems.

Kanye West and Drake’s OG confidante J Prince want the pair to call off the dispute. And now West Coast hip-hop icon Ice Cube is chiming in too.

The legend chatted with Sana G Morning Show, discussing a few vital matters, such as whom he has his money on in the 2018 NBA Finals and the King Push versus 6 God rivalry. 

First things first—Ice Cube doesn’t believe that anyone has the “industry on lock”, due to the influx of rising rap talents popping up across the industry. 

Obviously, there have been artists who have taken the game by storm with insanely successful releases or hip-hop debuts, i.e. Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent (and even Drake), he shared.

“He had a good run,” he said of Drake. “You only got a three-year run in the rap game, baby! At the top, you only got three years at the tip-top of the rap game, and then you gotta find your place in this thing.”

In fact, he thinks that this is just how it goes. A “pattern”; he reminded us all that Drake’s label head/mentor Lil Wayne had his three-year monopolizing effect, before pointing to T-Pain as another star who underwent a similar trial run…and projected the same for Kendrick Lamar. 

But is Pusha T responsible for shoving Drake off of his musical throne? Eh.

“I don’t know if that did it,” he clarified. “I think it’s just, you know, your reign becomes over. I think the audience has determined that more.”

As for the three year limit standard…

“That’s just been the pattern,” he said. “It was the pattern with me.”

How does he stay up to date with what’s going on in the rap realm? His son O’Shea Jackson Jr. has been filling him in (though he admits that he has been pretty busy with his own ventures). He also gave World Star Hip-Hop a hilarious nod on this front.

Cube also commented on one of the beef’s most hotly debated controversies; whether the barbs took it too far. To date, the pair have honed in alleged infidelities, ghostwriting allegations, nasty MS quips and a secret love child

“That ain’t cool,” he shared, speaking up about Pusha zeroing in on Drake’s parents. “I’m gonna have to see you. I might have to get a fair one. I might have to get that fade if you go too far. I’m gonna have to take it off the music if you go too far with my family.”

As for his own Death Certificate diss track of 1991, “No Vaseline,” aimed at the remaining members of N.W.A. during their fall-out at the time, Cube feels he kept it within reasonable bounds as well.

Is it over for Drake being on top of hip hop?
