The latest iteration of Pusha T‘s rap feud with Drake seems to have come to an end. However, that doesn’t mean the Daytona rapper will no longer talk about it.

Speaking with GQ, Push talked discussed the two’s rap beef at length, speaking on his decision to use Drake in blackface as the cover art for his diss “The Story of Adidon” as well as J Prince claiming that the Canadian rapper had a career-ending response for the GOOD Music President.

“I just know that me being a black man, that’s something I’m totally against,” Pusha said in regards to the image of Drake in blackface. “I’m just like, ‘How could you be that comfortable, ever?’ Just for me, there’s no way that’s ever comfortable.”

As for J Prince’s claim, here’s what Push had to say:

 “I just feel like if there was something that was beneficial for either of those two guys, they would do it. I think they’re into doing anything that’s beneficial for them…I don’t want to call them scared. I just want to say that they’re thinking. They’re doing what’s best for them.”

However, the most revealing part of the interview might be Push’s thoughts on rap battling in the age of social media.

“It’s different because there’s a lot of sympathy and compassion and things like that I didn’t know existed. That’s why it’s not even fun to me anymore,” the rapper said when asked how rap battles in this era are different. “It’s so weird. There’s a sentimental aspect that I didn’t know existed. But new rules. I’m learning and discovering a whole bunch of new rules in the rap game. And I’ll just leave it at that.”

Push released his third studio album Daytona two weeks ago. The release is the first of several Kanye West-produced album slated to be released throughout the coming months.
