Pusha T has shared a hilarious diss track at McDonald’s.
The rapper has teamed up with fast-food rivals Arby’s for the advert which promotes their new item, ‘Crispy Fish Sandwich’ and sees him finally get revenge on McDonald’s, who he’s been holding a grudge against for almost two decades.
In 2003, McDonald’s debuted their new jingle, which featured the iconic phrase, ‘I’m Lovin’ It’, and Pusha claims to have created the Neptunes produced track. However, his claim has been contested by other co-writers involved in the session.
Pusha is refusing to back down, and in a new interview with Rolling Stone about ‘Spicy Fish Diss Track’, he said once more he was “solely responsible for the ‘I’m Lovin’ It’ swag and the jingle of that company”.
He continued: “I did it at a very young age at a very young time in my career where I wasn’t asking for as much money and ownership. It’s something that’s always dug at me later in life like, ‘Dammit, I was a part of this and I should have more stake.’
“It was like half a million or a million dollars for me and my brother — but that’s peanuts for as long as that’s been running. I had to get that energy off me, and this [ad] was the perfect way to get that energy like, ‘You know what? I’m over it.'”
All that pent up anger that’s been eating Push up on the inside for the last 20-years is let out on the ferocious diss track and, specifically, targeted at the chain’s Filet-o-Fish burger.
“How dare you sell a square fish asking us to trust it? A half slice of cheese, Mickey D’s on a budget?” he raps on the track. Later on, Pusha spits: “Say less, this argument is baseless, Drowned in tartar, that Filet-o-Fish is tasteless.”
