Pusha has some strong views

Kanye West and Pusha-T seem to have a strong personal and creative relationship. This, despite the fact that they seem to have a real political bifurcation.

Weeks before the release of his ye album, Kanye West tweeted out a photo where he was wearing the infamous red “Make America Great Again” hat. Add this to the fact that West has supported President Donald Trump in the past.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Pusha talked openly about the different views of the two. Specifically, he spoke about Kanye’s view that slavery sounded like “a choice:”

We disagree on plenty of shit…Of course I disagree with what he said then…Well, when he did TMZ, I flew to Wyoming the next day [to confront him]. We spoke about insensitivity. The actual messaging. Where I felt he went wrong. You can’t even paraphrase about situations and issues that are so personal to people. When it comes to death and real-life people and persecution and things where families have been divided, you have to be more careful.

Pusha then spoke some harsh words about the “Make America Great Again” hat, the calling card for a Trump supporter. Pusha said:

The Make America Great Again hat is this generation’s Ku Klux hood. When was America so great anyways? Name that time period?

Pusha also spoke spitefully about the Drake beef. It seems like he’s done with it, saying:

He said what he said, I said what I said, now it’s done. It stayed how it was supposed to stay, just words… was definitely good for hip-hop. What has been more energetic than this?

He also admits that he’s going to listen to Scorpion, Drake’s new album.
