Noah Shebib addresses Pusha T’s line directed at him from his 2018 Drake diss, “The Story of Adidon.”
In the diss, Pusha said the following in regards to Shebib and his multiple sclerosis disease: “OVO 40, hunched over like he 80— tick, tick, tick/How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick.”
“I guess all I’ll say is that was just a different thing for me,” 40 said about the line. “Different than a bar that he gets off. No real comment. I made my comment. It was National MS Awareness day.”
When asked about how the line made him feel, the producer added: “Like shit, for sure. Like shit. Ultimately, I like turning things into positive situations or brighter sides. And if that brings awareness to my disease on a bigger level, I was happy about that. That’s what I used it for. That ultimately is a good thing for me. I like that transaction we had from that perspective. I’m very vocal about it.”
Shebib also said that he felt Pusha had crossed a line with the bar, saying: “That was something different than a bar in a song.”
At the time of the track’s release, Shebib had responded to the diss against him by tweeting out a link to World MS Day.
In 2019, Drake spoke out on “The Story of Adidon” and the line directed at Shebib during an interview with Rap Radar.
“The part that hit me the most, which is wishing that my friend who has an illness dies — that shit, to me, is not really wavy,” he said. “I’m just not with that.”
