Instead of lashing back, Pusha says he is most focused on his peers making quality music.
Last week, the latest shots in the ongoing G.O.O.D. Music versus Young Money beef rang out: YMCMB soldier Jae Millz released "Hearing Voices," labeled as a diss to Pusha T, who's been the main provocateur on the G.O.O.D. Music side of things. But, in a recent sit-down with BET, Pusha didn't take the bait. "I guess they're doing what they should do -- it is what it is." Pusha replied when BET.com asked him about "Hearing Voices." "As long as the music is good, I ain't got no worries, man. Now, bad music I don't like." (BET)
Millz's new "Hearing Voices" diss record landed online last week.
After releasing the single "Hearing Voices," Jae Millz continued to retweet fans who were enjoying the track, adding, "I'm just chilling tho..." "Shame on me on yet to have an album in a wrapper/But n---a shame on you for every album getting' wacker/and you a d---- rider, switch sider, certified clique hopper, still getting nada," he spits. "N----s cat fighting with the team on that sneak s----/making diss records but keeping it secret/throwing darts like a b*tch/instead bombing like a warrior/just letting me know there's p----y in all of ya."

Recently, Pusha explained his decision not to answer Lil Wayne's "Goulish" diss record.
"I was surprised actually at the whole -- anybody, but Wayne specifically, answering 'Exodus.' I've never seen one record that didn't say any names cause so much of a firestorm," Pusha told radio host Funkmaster Flex. "['Goulish?'] It was horrible. It was trash. It wasn't good -- I didn't like [the production] either. Let me say this. I didn't like it for that type of record. I didn't feel like, in all honesty, I haven't said anything about it because I didn't think it was good enough to respond to." (Hot 97)
A few days ago, the Virginia-bred rapper waved off the notion of G.O.O.D Music competing against crews like Maybach Music Group and Young Money.
"No. I don't think that G.O.O.D. Music ever considers any of the other labels that are out there. We like the music. We appreciate it. But at the end of the day I think it's more competitive in-house. You've got guys like [Big] Sean, who's like running his little section," Pusha explained in an interview. "You've got guys like Common, who will just rap you out of house and home. You've got guys like myself who, you know... I get busy. You've got Kanye. You've got [Kid] Cudi in his lane. It's more of a puzzle trying to get all those different characters and all those different forms or rap to mesh well on a record. [To even] find the right record. Ye's got to go through his whole production line process before it's perfect. That's really what we consider in the studio." (Complex)
On set of the record's music video shoot, Joe spoke on Yeezy's genius and the possibility of them hooking back up.
While Yeezy loved the track Joe played for him, he ended up taking it apart and putting it back together to his specifications. "He was like, 'Yeah, all right, engineer, erase everything ... and now let's start,' " Fat Joe recalled of 'Ye's process. "I was like, 'Wow, this guy's crazy,' but you know, it's an adventure." Whatever the process, Fat Joe walked away in awe of West's creativity. "It was amazing, man. He's a genius," he said. "To get in there with him is incredible, and he likes perfection, and that only means the record is going to be hot, so, you know I love it." Whether the two will work together again anytime soon is anyone's guess. "I really don't know. You know, there's some rumors," Joe said cryptically. "That's all I can say. It's a rumor until it happens, just put it like that." (MTV)
Last weekend, Joe, Ye and more hip-hop heavyweights got together in New York City for the music video.
Fat Joe's single "Pride N Joy," featuring Kanye West, Miguel, Jadakiss, Yasiin Bey, DJ Khaled, Roscoe Dash, and Busta Rhymes, now has an official video in the works, directed by the legendary Hype Williams. With a lineup like this, and Hype Williams behind the camera, this has potential to be one of the most memorable videos of the summer. (Complex)
He recently hinted at some in-studio differences he had with Ye when they constructed the record.
"There's some other real dope parts of that song that we ain't put on there," Joe reveals. "But, you know, he's Kanye West. He's a genius. He's the best. I argued with him a little, but I let him lead the way, so that's how it is. There's no way in the world you're gonna get everyone to sing on beat. N*ggas just said, 'We're not singers.' And he was like, 'That's the dope sh*t.' We off beat. We ain't no R&B n*ggas. We singin' that sh*t off beat." (XXL Mag)
Their star-studded collaboration emerged out of the blue in May.
Once again, Bronx, NY rapper Fat Joe is giving us a sneak peek into his upcoming as-yet-untitled 11th solo album via a new guest-packed track. Dubbed "Pride and Joy," the song's guestlist is impressive, to say the least, with everyone from Kanye West, Mos Def and DJ Khaled to Miguel, Jadakiss, Roscoe Dash and Busta Rhymes making an appearance. The song was produced by BINK! and co-written by Rico Love. (Exclaim)
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Meek Mill was in his hometown of Philadelphia today (July 31), to make an appearance in front of a local judge.
According to Fox 29 News, Meek was in court for a mandatory status hearing, which he must attend every 3 to 6 months, to make sure he is in compliance with the terms of his probation.
The rapper is on probation for a prior drug/gun conviction. According to Fox 29, the judge presiding over the case reprimanded Meek for lyrics on his song “The Ride.”
Meek accuses prosecutors of overlooking his positive contributions to society on the track “The Ride,” in which he labels the D.A. a “b**ch.”
The judge told Meek not to mention the D.A. in future lyrics.
