For the past two days, the Internet has been utterly buzzing because of Pusha T’s new diss record aim at Drake called, “The Story of Adidon” in which he verbally eviscerates the self-proclaimed 6 God over Jay-Z’s “The Story of OJ” track.
Sunday, May 21, 2017, music star Drake came away with a record-breaking 13 BillBoard Awards including, top artist, top male artist, and best album for "Views." Breaking the record (12), which was held previously by Adele in 2012, is a major accomplishment for any artist regardless of genre. The Billboards are where artist gauge their success based on where they land on the charts.
Drake has a song that charted on the top 200 since the year 2009, I was in the tenth grade.
So when taking his success into account, and current status at the top of Hip-Hop specifically, I have to begin to think about when it's time to go after the giant that is Jay-Z.
Let's first set the scene, it’s September 11, 2001, a day Americans will always remember as the day the World Trade Center was attacked in New York City. 9/11 is also the day Rap fans worldwide will remember as the day Jay-Z dropped one of the most lethal, lyrical assaults in Hip-Hop history with the release of the “Takeover” off of his sixth studio album, The Blueprint.
