MS Society Addresses Pusha T’s Line About ’40’ in ‘The Story of Adidon’
In a statement to Pitchfork, the organization's PR rep Eileen Curran found the song troubling because she feels that Pusha T is making fun of MS.
"Multiple sclerosis, which affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide, is an often misunderstood disease," she writes. "People living with MS face many challenges every day, which is why it's so important to continue to raise awareness for MS so others can better understand those challenges. We at the National MS Society see this as an opportunity to raise awareness of this disease, the people who live with it, and the support that is out there — especially since today (May 30) is World MS Day."
As we previously reported, King Push dropped his response track to Drake's "Duppy Freestyle" where he attacked the Virginia rapper's street credibility and mentioned his fiancée by name. On the brutal "The Story of Adidon," Push delivers several delivered several acidic bars at Drizzy. He talked about his alleged child, his parents and even producer Noah "40" Shebib struggles with MS. "OVO 40, hunched over like he 80, tick, tick, tick," Pusha raps. "How much time he got? That man is sick, sick, sick."
In response, Shebib went on Twitter to point out that today (May 30) marked World MS Day and shared a link to the MS International Federation's event page.
In an interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Pusha T said that "all bets were off and everything is on the table" once Drake mentioned his fiancée's name on "Duppy Freestyle." Oh, and he has more lyrical ammo for Aubrey - just in case he wants to respond.
So far, Drake has not yet responded. To be continued...
