Pusha T has released a new track taking aim at Drake while posting a photo appearing to show the Canadian rapper in blackface. But "The Story of Adidon" is breathtakingly vicious in its accusations.

Newsbeat has contacted representatives of Drake, Too Black Guys and photographer David Leyes for comment. The song employs No I.D.'s beat for JAY-Z's "The Story of O.J.", a video that prominently featured minstrelry imagery similar to the single artwork.

The pic was deemed as inappropriate, and Instagram removed it from Pusha-T's page because 'a third party reported that the content infringes or otherwise violates their rights'.

On Pusha's newest diss track, he raps: "Adonis is your son/And he deserves more than an Adidas press run", referencing Drake's alleged illegitimate son with pornstar Sophie Brussaux and his rumored deal with the shoe brand. The diss came with an older photograph of Drake in blackface and wearing a Jim Crow t-shirt.

In the track, United States rapper Pusha T touches on Drake being mixed race, his producer having multiple sclerosis and a rumour that Drake is fathering a secret child. Famous or not, who ever says the absolute cruelest thing they can? "But we couldn't know about your child until you start selling sweatsuits and sneakers?"

Canada's Government Buys Controversial Oil Pipeline, To Ensure It Gets Expanded
Cal Salem with Squamish First Nation told the crowd his people do not what this pipeline, while calling Justin Trudeau a liar. Premier Joe Horgan and indigenous groups in B.C. have been opposed to the project for months.

Drake: I want you to have an abortion. "I really do. Like I really need to understand like what makes you take a picture like that, like what's the problem?"

Drake: You do know what you're doing you think you're going to get money.

Like Kim Kardashian, another curation expert who delights in snatching the last word in any feud, it takes a lot to phase him.

Pusha also namedrops Noah "40" Shebib in his diss track and claimed that Drake has a secret baby. That's what resonates the most with me: He doesn't even sound that mad about what he's saying. Music label head Kanye West.
