No Malice, the rapper who left the music industry to follow God, came to his brother Pusha T's defense after the emcee dissed Lil Wayne in the song "Exodus 23:1" and a rebuttal hit the Internet last weekend.
After the release of "Exodus 23:1" in which Pusha T spoke about the lack of street credibility and flawed recording contracts of an unnamed rapper, Lil Wayne released a song titled "Goulish." Although No Malice renounced his hardcore rapper image to focus on his Christian faith last year, he responded to the issues between his brother and Lil Wayne.
"Well I LOVE Pusha! That's my blood and I ain't never kiss em," No Malice tweeted, in reference to a picture that surfaced years ago of Lil Wayne kissing his mentor Birdman.
No Malice's tweet came one day after Wayne tweeted, "(expletive) Pusha T and everybody that love em."
The Cash Money Young Money Brother's tweet followed Pusha T's, "Exodus 23:1" song.
"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 in "Exodus 23:1".
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."
Wayne responded in his song by the rapper him directly.
"(Expletive) Pusha-T and everybody that love him/ His head up his (expletive) so i'ma have to head butt him," Lil Wayne rapped on "Goulish." "You softer than the (expletive) nurf ball/ birdcall, what happened to that boy/ he was talking (expletive) we put a clapping to that boy."
Fans of the rappers took to Twitter to weigh in on the seemingly escalating rap beef. Some thought Lil Wayne's record label Young Money Cash Money Brothers was lacking the same skills of Pusha T's G.O.O.D music record label.
"G.O.O.D music roster is too deep for YMCMB," one person tweeted.
Another thought Lil Wayne's efforts to respond to Pusha T were subpar.
"Lil Wayne's ids to Pusha T was one of the world's worst diss records," another person tweeted.
Pusha T released the visuals for "Exodus 23:1" on Tuesday in a video that was filmed in an urban neighborhood and features the rapper seemingly mocking hand signs used by Lil Wayne.
