The pair traded verbal jabs over the summer in the latest round of their long-simmering beef, but things seemed to quiet down after Pusha released “The Story of Adidon,” which outed the Toronto emcee as a new dad.
While Drake assumed Pusha’s G.O.O.D Music label-mate, Kanye West, spilled the tea, Pusha revealed somebody inside Drizzy’s camp actually dropped the bombshell.
“The information came from 40. It didn’t come from Kanye, at all,” Pusha said on The Joe Budden Podcast, referring to Noah “40” Shebib, Drake’s longtime friend and collaborator.
“40 is sleeping with a woman…he talks to her daily — five, six hours a day,” the Virginia rapper continued. “[It] provides opportunity for her and ultimately [she] speaks about how he’s disgruntled about certain things, notoriety and things involving Drake and his career.”

The account contradicts Drake’s recent claim that the information about his son came from West.
“I’m in Wyoming. I play him ‘March 14.’ I send him a picture of my son,” Drake told LeBron James on the NBA star’s new HBO series, The Shop.
After things went awry between Drake and West, the 6-god said he knew King Push would probably use that information against him.

“I’m gonna tell you something, I knew something was gonna come up about my kid,” Drake said on The Shop. “They had to add the deadbeat dad thing to make it more appealing, which is fine.”
While Pusha intended to remain mum about the whole issue, he said he decided to set the record straight after Drake told his side of the story.
“The only reason I’m here now is because he was so passionate about it,” Pusha explained.
According to the rap emcee, he didn’t want Drake continuing to perpetuate a lie.
“When that one narrative is out there, other people believe it to be true,” he said.
So which side do you believe — Pusha or Drake?
