Maybe with less “Poopy-di scoop”…?
Pusha T has claimed that a version of Kanye West‘s ‘Lift Yourself’ with actual lyrics exists.
In April, West made headlines after releasing the divisive track, which includes the rapper scatting: “Poopy-di scoop / Scoop-diddy-whoop / Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop”.
Pusha has now indicated that Kanye’s new album could include a poop-free version of ‘Lift Yourself’. He told The Breakfast Club: “The ‘Lift Yourself’ beat is so fire, and I think that shows his level of confidence and arrogance.”
“Listen, it’s a real single that even has real other lyrics to it, so on and so forth, and he’s like ‘Yo, nah, I’mma show you. You know what? I’mma throw this out and show them what I think of all that. It’s nothing.’”
Meanwhile, Pusha T has been embroiled in a beef with Drake over the past few days.
Drake hit back with a diss track called ‘Duppy Freestyle’, in which he fires back: “Don’t push me when I’m in album mode, you’re not even top five as far as your label talent goes”.
On the track, the Toronto rapper also says that he should send an invoice for adding to the publicity surrounding Pusha’s album. He later actually sent a $100,000 invoice for “career reviving”.
Nicki Minaj has since defended Drake, tweeting: “Challenging the chosen ones only awakens the sleeping giant”.
