Pusha-T Says He Learned About Drake’s Child Through Noah “40” Shebib, Not Kanye West

The G.O.O.D. Music President gave a wide-ranging interview on ‘The Joe Budden Podcast.’

Following Drake’s appearance on LeBron JamesThe Shop over the weekend, Pusha-T decided to fully tell his side of the story during an appearance on The Joe Budden Podcast. During the interview, he denied that Kanye West told him about Drake’s secret child, which he first exposed on “The Story of Adidon.” Instead, he says, the information came from Drake’s close friend and collaborator Noah “40” Shebib.

“It may make sense in Drake’s mind, like, ‘Ye told Push about my son and my situation. I was in Wyoming, blasé blasé blah.’ It’s wrong. Didn’t happen like that. Never happened,‘” he said. “Not what it is. Not how it happened. Not where the information came from.”

Instead, Pusha explained that 40 told all the information to a woman he’s sleeping with, which is how he found out. “The information came from 40. It didn’t come from Kanye, at all,” he said. “40 is sleeping with a woman, who begins to… he talks to her daily. Five, six hours a day… And ultimately speaks about how he’s disgruntled about certain things, notoriety and things involving Drake and his career, and so on and so forth. With that also came the fact that Drake has a child. With that also came the trip that everybody took to go see the child, and bring him gifts, and all this information. She divulged this information. That’s where it came from.”

Push said that he’s been annoyed by assumptions from fans and the media that Drake’s side of the story was true. “That narrative needs to die. It’s done,” he said. Genius previously broke down everything you need to know about “The Story of Adidon”:

He also expressed frustration about Drake’s The Shop interview, saying it was biased and didn’t mention several of Drake’s transgressions. “I don’t see how you could chime in so much and not mention ‘Two Birds One Stone,’ Cudi’s mental health issues, mentioning my wife. I don’t see how you could not say anything about any of those things, and then only speak me wishing death. When, everybody heard the song. I didn’t wish death on nobody,” he said. Pusha-T took a shot at 40’s multiple sclerosis diagnosis on “The Story of Adidon,” which Drake recently said made him want to punch Pusha in the mouth:

OVO 40, hunched over like he 80—tick, tick, tick
How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick

“The bromance works both ways. They both be fake friends with each other all day, in my opinion,“ Pusha said about Kanye and Drake’s relationship. He also claimed Kanye won’t let him come to the studio anytime he works with Drake.

Elsewhere in the interview, Push revealed that he’s completing work on his next project. Thus far, it doesn’t mention Drake. “That’s a fact. I’m finishing up my new album now. I’m off this shit,” he said. Although he was planning for Kanye to produce the entire thing again, plans may have changed due to the rapper’s trip to Uganda. “I’m about to see, because I was supposed to be with him and we’re not,” he said.
