J Prince Tells Drake to Stand Down in Pusha T Beef

Following a very public week of diss tracks and spats, Pusha-T proved he is a force to be reckoned with at the New York City-based music festival.

Embattled rapper Kanye West is calling for a truce between fellow lyricists Drake and Pusha-T after a week of the two taking painfully personal digs at one another.

Drake responded by sending Pusha T an invoice for reviving his career and released a response track, "Duppy Freestyle", that took shots at Pusha T and West.

Pusha-T ended his set 15 minutes earlier than scheduled, but his DJ continued to play. The last song he played during his set was "Infrared".

Fast forward a week and Pusha's performance of "Infrared" had the Governors Ball crowd chanting "f*** Drake". He tweeted, "I've never been about beef". According to Billboard, after his performance of "Infrared", the rapper said something into the mic that sounded a bit like "Why the fuck would you do that?"

Both Kanye West (who produced Daytona and released it through his GOOD Music) and J Prince (who has gone to bat for Drake before) have spoken out about the feud, agreeing that "Adidon" took things too far and it's time to put a stop to things.

While Drake didn't respond to Pusha directly, he did respond to the blackface photo shoot.

'The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment, ' said Drake, who noted that he and Elsadig were making a commentary about their 'frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for black actors had not changed much'.
