Recently, Jim Jones sparked a controversial discussion about Pusha T’s position among the greatest rappers of all time, stating that he doesn’t deserve a place in the Top 50.
He questioned Pusha T’s contribution to the rap game by asking, “What has he done besides talk about coke that he probably didn’t get himself?”
Jones acknowledged Pusha T’s rapping skills but argued that he hasn’t achieved the iconic status of other rappers. “He’s nice as sht. He could rap his as off, but what has he done? Nobody has dressed like him. Nobody wants to be like Pusha T,” Jones said.
Moreover, he pointed out that Pusha T lacks the charisma and influence that make rappers great. “I don’t remember nothing. And let’s not be evil, but we don’t talk about rap where the nia that’s popping the bihes wanna fk and the nias wanna be like. I don’t know too many ni*as in this game that was leaning towards being like Pusha T. Pusha T don’t hold no weight out here. He not pushing no sht out here,” Jones added.
Pusha T, however, seems to have caught wind of Jones’ comments, as he posted a photo on Instagram thanking Jerry Lorenzo, who included him in his Fear Of God show. The caption read, “Places they’ll never be, stages they’ll never see…” This led to speculation that Pusha T’s message was directed at Jones.
During his appearance on The Breakfast Club, Jones reiterated his position on Pusha T’s legacy. “Could you name five Pusha T records?” he challenged the hosts. “Could you rap to five Pusha T records? Could you rap five Jay-Z verses if they came on? Could you rap five Drake verses if they came on? You lying because you work at radio. I’m just gonna say that because ni**as gonna say Jim went way wildin.”
Despite his criticism, Jones made it clear that he has no animosity towards Pusha T. “Shoutout to Pusha T, I love your soul,” he said. “You my dawg, you not in my top 50. You might be in Charlamagne’s top 50 and things like that, but you haven’t done that much for me in my life. I never wanted to be like Pusha, I never had a Pusha moment in my life. Where I’m from, ni**as wanted to be like you if you was really that dude as a rapper.”
