Over the weekend, the internet was set ablaze when Pusha T's removed verse on Rick Ross' track, "Maybach Music VI," was leaked.
To clear the air, Pusha called into the Joe Budden Podcast where he spoke his truth. During his conversation with the State of the Culture host, Pusha explained that he is not mad about Ross' decision. "We here to rap, bro. That's what I'm here for," he said. "We all have to do what we do best. I have to do what I do best. The next guy gotta do what he does best. It's lanes for everybody... I'm okay man, It's part of the game. I can't complain about it, I mean at this stage in my career... hey!"
On Pusha's leaked verse, fans believe that the "Trust You" spitter was attempting to take shots at Drake, once again. "Crowns on these clowns it's like you colored they nose," he spits. "We talking skill set or popularity polls when you speak truth to power your popularity grows."
For his part, Rick Ross clarified in an interview that he removed Pusha's verse because he made a judgment call. In the future, Ross hopes that Drake, Lil Wayne, Pusha and Kanye West can put all issues aside and create great music together.
"What's so dope about it is that both verses were cleared from both parties," Ross said when asked about his decision to keep Lil Wayne's verse over Pusha's. "But like I said, it was more about the bigger picture, is this gonna move them two getting together and closer. I'ma take the charge for that. I didn't feel like it was the time for that. I got the record done. I got Wayne verse first, I got Push verse. I wanted to bring them together either way or at least spark that conversation."
