Pusha T says that a quote from Birdman set him off and inspired him to write "New God Flow."
Pusha T and Lil Wayne have had their differences over the past few years, taking it to wax with the former's "Exodus 23:1" and the latter's "Goulish." During an interview with HHW, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper revealed that "New God Flow" was an extension of his beef with Cash Money, stating that a quote from Birdman inspired him to once again take aim at the squad.
"'New God Flow' was about, in my view, something I read in a Birdman interview that I didn't like. He said something like 'G.O.O.D. Music isn't nothing' and it had nothing to do with Wayne or Drake per se," he said. "That was Birdman saying whatever he wanted to say and that was the basis of where all of my lines came from. Everybody else was on their love of Hip Hop shit."
As for the YMCMB crew, Pusha said that he doesn't have much ill will towards the collective and that their beef with him is much stronger than vice versa.
"I don't have no ill will towards none of them man. Really I don't. I know for sure that their wills towards me is way iller than mine towards them. I know that. But it's like, I don't have ill will. That's why I can be like, 'Aww, fuck that. That shit ain't good.' 'Cause if it ain't going to be about making awesome, awesome music, then what are we doing?"
