Video: Pusha T – ‘Sweet (Freestyle)’

Pusha T

Pusha T spits out tough rhymes in the gritty video for his freestyle over “Sweet” by his fellow G.O.O.D. Music MC Common. The Clipse member keeps it real, taking it back to Hough Ave. Terrace and kicking it with his crew and the local residents in the black-and-white clip. See him rep for VA.

    Right now, it seems as if Drake has Common, Ludacris & Pusha-T after him. Damn, dudes jumped on the occasion like starving sharks surrounding fresh meat. And not just any type of sharks: Pusha & Common are outstanding emcees and Luda has one of the sharpest flows.

    I’m curious to see what’s next, now that the ball is on Drizzy’s side. One thing’s for sure, though: If they keep cornering him like that, something’s got to give. If this whole thing escalates any further, it may lead out of the bounds of music. Because Drake might not be a gangsta, but he’s got people ready to get their hands dirty for him.

    @C94B, like who? If Drake keeps getting pushed he’s going to fold up and cry just like his over sensitive, insecure ass cried when he thought Common was directly talking to Drake.

    @Mr Nice Watch, all of you hide behind the same reasons to hate on drake. you say he act soft and when he act hard you diss him for acting hard.
    well his soft singing gets him more girls than any rapper out today so i don’t see what’s wrong with it.
    plus if you a j. cole fan, maybe you should have love for drake because j. cole sure does.

    @Mr Nice Watch,

    Trust me, this is psychologically unavoidable. If he “folds up and cry” as you said, then he might lose control, make decisions that are not lucid and thought about and stuff like that may happen.

    @C94B, i keep hearing stuff like “drakes got people ready to “get their hands dirty for him” where are you getting thias from and who are referring to? no shade to drake but its almost like you just read that on a young money dan page and copy pasted it… or maybe watched the headlines video one too many times… like mr nice watch asked who are you talking about specifically that is willing to kill somebody? if u cant answer that will any real clarity stop saying it, because you sound really stupid

    @Briyan,

    First of all, he’s got a lot of money. That is an immediate X factor. He can do anything. And I’m personally persuaded some of his guys are dangerous ones, that might even be the reason why they are in his crew, if they ever are. It’s all about legitimacy and credibility. Especially when you draw as much money as Drake does.

    Second of all, rap is a game like Poker. You ALWAYS bet the maximum (your reputation, legitimacy, etc.). And you must be ready to do almost anything to protect it, in order to stay relevant.

    Now everybody’s looking at Drake. Because Common officially started this ish when he mentioned his name in the remix.

    Please don’t be naive.

    @Briyan, You sound stupid for saying other people sound stupid when you have no proof that what they’re saying is not true. All I know is that Drake have previously mentioned in a song that couple of his OVO crew depend on Drake for their lives and will do anything to keep things the way they are. I also know that Drake is somewhat affiliated with Bloods through Lil Wayne. In the end I believe (because we never know) that he has more people than Luda and Common. I don’t follow Pusha T, so I don’t know about him. I don’t even think it will be as big as people are trying to make. Jay Z warned Drake about this in Light Up.

    @C94B, You can’t make assumptions that Pusha T was dissing Drake. Anyway, I like both Common and Drake. Drake makes softer music, Common just a little harder. They should just respect each other.

    @nicegirl,

    Assumptions is all we can make. We can’t be 100% sure for Pusha-T, but considering the fact that there’s suspicions over his “Don’t Fuck With Me” freestyle… And we know Common’s his natural ally.

    “I hear ‘em whisper like a hummingbird sing
    Of all the trust issues that 100 birds bring
    Now the wolves out hunting for your bling
    You out preyin’ on the bitches with the lowest self-esteem
    It’s a common running theme.”

    Come on. Don’t be naive. This is all assumptions. But this is strong. And unfortunately, they can’t just respect each other. Hip-Hop is that way. Sometimes there must be a cock fight, it helps redefining the genre. So people don’t get lost. This is human process. I’m cool with your positivity though LOL

    You know you’ve made it when multiple people coming at you. Drake is really the Jay-Z of today now he just needs to follow his advice.

    “Drake, here is how they gon’ come at you
    Will silly raps for you tryin’ to distract you
    In disguise, in the form of a favor
    The Barzini meet, watch for the traitors”

    - Jay-Z

    Hov predicted this shit because he knows how similar Drake and his career is compared to his own. He knows whats going to happen and he was ready with advice. Hov was smart, he did subliminals so he won’t make the other dude more famous.

    @Shade, that song was on drakes first album….what career similarities are you possibly talking about. youre making imaginery connections where there are none.

    StarsAreBlind Reply:

    @Frank, You sound pressed. 1st album after 3 mixtapes and lots of features. Your point to disprove actually works against you because why would Jay Z be on a rapper that he’s not affiliated with’s first album? Unless, he seen something there, and the fact that he referred to Drake and directed the lines in his verse to him doesn’t sound imaginary; it’s not reading too much into it. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s pretty obvious and you’d have to be an idiot named Frank to think that there is no “connection”.

    If Drake spits like he did on 9am or Barry Bond, this could be interesting

    I think he gonna take the Jay-z no response/subliminal route though

    plus if u judge the jayz nas beef only off of takeover and ether then your depriving yourself of a historical battle. takin the beef public by saying names dont make it official. it could just make it fake. some of the best rap beefs dont say direct names. jay and nas beefed for years b4 takeover and ether and it was the shit. beans and jada beefed before they said names. jada and 50 got at each other. truth be told the nicest cats can make a better record when they dont say names. that separates the real rap fan from the casual rap fan. if u can hear the shots when it goes over most ppl heads

    Drake is basically the only artist on YM that i can say is very talented out of all the artist on their roster but… THIS IS HIPHOP, cant claim to be the best and not defend your so called title… you see the problem is these youngsters think that album sales equal talent and skill, Drake is a very successful mainstream artist but when it comes to hiphop then nobody gives a fuck about that you made it bs… shit even Soulja Boy made it n hes fresh out the anus… so let the boys handle they business n lets see who survives

    @Pleasure Boy, This guy is right. Don’t clam to be the best if you cant defend it. Common killed ice cube back in 1996, that when Ice cube was raw. In the end Common is the better Mc then Drake.
