The song features singer-songwriter The Dream and was released Wednesday night before becoming a Twitter trend Thursday morning. The song seemed to diss other musicians while mocking their recording contracts and lack of street credibility.

"Contract all (expletive) / Explain up I guess that means you all (expletive) up / You signed to one (expletive) that signed to another (expletive) that's signed to three (expletive) / Now that's bad luck," Pusha T rapped.

Many speculated that the rapper was speaking about fellow musician, Drake, who is currently signed to Lil Wayne's imprint, Young Money Cash Money Brothers record label. A few weeks ago, Drake released a track titled "Amen" with rapper Meek Mills which some assumed was aimed at Pusha T's home record label.

"G.O.O.D ain't good enough, and your hood ain't hood enough," Drake rapped in his verse.

However, Pusha T's new song seems to be questioning the loyalty of the people around the unnamed individual he is calling out in his record.

"Them (expletive) ain't dying for you," The Dream sings on the hook before Pusha T adds, "Throwing that flag up, thinking you hot (expletive) taking half of everything you get."

Lil Wayne, who is known for speaking about his gang affiliation while wearing flags as a symbol of his membership, responded to the song by cursing Pusha T and all of his affiliates on Twitter.

"(Expletive) Pusha T and anybody that (loves him)," Wayne tweeted early Thursday morning.

Fans of both music artists reacted to the song and broiling feud on the social networking website.

"Pusha T may not be the wealthiest of rappers but definitely top five lyricists," one fan of the rapper tweeted.

However another rap fan disagreed saying, "I'm sorry but that diss was garbage."

Still, some recognized that the song was an opportunity for a Bible verse to become a Twitter trend.

"First time for a Bible verse to get top trend," one person tweeted. "Exodus 23:1..only if it was for a positive reason."

The verse from the New Internation Version of the Holy Bible reads: "Do not spread false reports. Do not help a guilty person by being a malicious witness."
