Drake issued a statement Wednesday night regarding the blackface photo used of him for Pusha T’s “The Story of Adidon” diss. The photo was taken by David Leyes in 2008 and in the statement, Drake said that the idea behind it was to represent “how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”
Pusha T voiced his opinion on the statement Thursday morning while on LA’s The Real 92.3. “I don’t believe it at all,” the Virginia rapper said in response. “You are silent in all black issues Drake with a huge platform.” The statement comes before an in-song response to “The Story of Adidon,” which has been pointed out all over social media since it was issued. This is going to be a long battle.
