Drake’s Father Claps Back at Wendy Williams for Siding With Pusha-T
Drake's father Dennis Graham has thrown his hat into the ring of his son's beef with Pusha-T. But rather than responding to the person directly roasting him, Graham entered the fray from a side angle, targeting talk show provocateur Wendy Williams in an Instagram post on Wednesday (May 30).
Graham, whom King Push criticizes in his latest diss track, "The Story of Adidon," takes issue with Williams' commentary on her show about the ongoing rap beef between his son and G.O.O.D. Music's president. On the show, Wendy says that she thinks Pusha-T is winning the beef and goes on to list all of the allegations presented by Pusha—teenage Drake taking photos in blackface, Graham leaving Drake when the rapper was five, and Drake now parading his dad around in "Steve Harvey suits," just to name a few. It's curious that Graham addressed her, rather than the man who actually made the claims. In any case, Graham wants Williams to keep his family's name out of her mouth.
"Pusha-T's camp, I just want to give you all tens across the board because you're winning," Williams said near the beginning of her segment.
Graham responded in an Instagram caption, "I had come to actually finally like Wendy Williams and watch her show it grew on me, Here’s the game changer, It’s very informative when you listen to a talk host report a story that they’ve actually researched and share it with their audience."
He continued, "But this Rupaul Drag Race Queen looking B#+##^ has stepped out of her lane,You know nothing about Drake or Myself,Do your research before you try and be funny to your 79 capacity audience,Rupaul Jr WATCH HOW YOU SPEAK ON OUR NAME!!!!!!!! I lost all respect for you today !!!!"
Drake has not yet responded to Pusha's latest track, which itself was a response to Aubrey's diss track, "Duppy Freestyle"—the latest exchange in a years-long beef between the two artists. The OVO rapper plans to release an album titled Scorpion in June. Pusha released his third solo album Daytona on Friday, which also took jabs at Drake on "Infrared."
