Styles P Says Drake Is Wrong About Rap Beefs: "Ain't No Rules"

"You gotta go into it knowing anything could happen."

Drake shared some interesting thoughts about his recent rap beef with Pusha T on HBO's The Shop with Lebron James. During the conversation, Drizzy argued that there are rules to follow when engaging in rap beef, and that Pusha broke them when he wished death upon Drake's friend Noah "40" Shebib – who struggles with MS – on his diss track "The Story of Adidon." Not everyone would agree with that argument though. In a recent interview with Hot97 on Oct. 16, Styles P argued the complete opposite: there are no rules in rap beefs.

"You can’t expect in any type of warfare, any type, not just rap, ain’t no rules," Styles said. "You gotta go into it knowing anything could happen. That’s why your best bet is to not engage. Stay away from beef at all costs."

Styles also noted that Drake can't create rules that he doesn't even abide by. "I don’t got nothing against Drake, but how does a guy say what’s the rules in a rap battle that had a ghostwriter before. That’s not fair dog," he continued. "You gotta stay up there. You’re beautiful up there. We love you up there. But don’t come down here and change the rules. That’s wrong because it’s war."

He added: "Something else you’re asking him to do is not follow tradition. Pusha-T is not a new rapper, he’s been around for a while. There’s no rules in this. He’s heard it all when he’s heard beef.

As previously reported, Drake appeared to very upset about Push's comments about 40. In the latest episode of the HBO series, he suggested that someone was going to "punch" the G.O.O.D Music artist in his face for what he said. "When you mention defenseless people who are sick in the hospital, that passed away, that really sent me to a place where I just believed then, and believe now, that there’s just a price that you have to pay for that," he said at the time.

While that may have been a low blow, Styles P advised Drake to avoid rap battles from now on. "Drake, you the biggest guy in the game, just chill, there’s nothing wrong with that. It shouldn’t have been a battle," he continued.

Lizzo Reacts To Hillary Clinton's "Truth Hurts" Tweet

Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” may be over two years old, but it’s proven to be her most impactful hit yet. The track gained steam after being featured in Netflix’s Someone Great, and currently sits at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also garnered the attention of one of the biggest names in politics.

A video Lizzo posted on Twitter features Hillary Clinton and other former Presidential hopefuls standing and saluting the flag. While we may expect the National Anthem to play, “Truth Hurts” blares over the speaker instead.

Shortly after the video was posted, Hillary Clinton (or at least a very in-touch intern of hers) replied, tweeting out the song’s popular lyrics “I just took a DNA test, turns out…”

“@hillaryclinton just confirmed Truth Hurts is 100% the new national anthem... have a great day,” Lizzo wrote on Instagram.

The musician opened up about practically quitting music after “Truth Hurts” failed to take off initially.

“I remember thinking, ‘If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares,’” she told PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘F**k it, I’m done.’ And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, ‘Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.'”

She also recently teased a remix to the song with DaBaby.

"I just took a DNA test, turns out..."

Drake Faces Lawsuits Over 'Nice For What' And 'In My Feelings'

A rapper by the name of Sam Skully is suing both Drake and Big Freedia for alleged use of his beat for the songs “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What.”

Per TMZ, Skully (real name Samuel Nicholas III) claims that a portion of his 2000’s song “Roll Call” was used in the popular song “In My Feelings.” He also alleges that “Nice For What,” which features Big Freedia, uses another one of his stolen beats.

“In the docs, Sam Skully claims he published the beat on a CD he released in New Orleans way back in 2000, but says he didn't know his work had been stolen until years later ... when Drake and Big Freedia released songs that started climbing the charts,” reports the site.

“Nice For What” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018, as did “In My Feelings.” The latter track remained there for 10 weeks and was associated with the highly-popular “In My Feelings” challenge.

Skully is also reportedly suing Asylum Records, Cash Money Records and Republic Records for damages.
