In addition to revealing the release date for the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Pusha T weighed in on a number of hot topics during his interview with Funkmaster Flex. Find out what he thought of “Ghoulish,” Lil Wayne’s response to his fiery record “Exodus 23:1,” and whether Kanye West has taken interest in his beef with Young Money. Plus, does he support Nicki Minaj’s decision to cancel her Summer Jam performance and what does he make of the Chris Brown vs. Drake drama? You may be surprised by his answers.

On whether we will see another Clipse album: “Definitely. A lot of people get that twisted and they say, ‘You and your brother broke up.’ We can’t break up, we brothers. It doesn’t happen that way. He went and did his book and I went on a solo venture. We definitely coming back with another Clipse album.”

On Nicki Minaj vs. Hot 97: “Let’s call a spade a spade. [Peter] Rosenberg attacked her. Rosenberg was doing him, but that’s what he does. He’s an outspoken guy, everybody knows that. … I definitely would have performed, just for the sake of my fans. I know Rosenberg’s personality well enough to know that this is what comes with the territory. It’s a cruel world out here. Everybody got their own opinions. When Rosenberg disses me, I’ma black out in a verse immediately the best way I know how.”

On Young Money’s decision to boycott Summer Jam: “I thought it showed a real level of camaraderie by her listening [to Wayne] and not performing, and sort of banding together like, ‘Yo, we ain’t doing it.’ There was some solidarity there. I thought that was fresh.”

On his song “Exodus 23:1,” which is believed to be aimed at Drake: “I was surprised by anybody, Wayne specifically, answering ‘Exodus.’ I’ve never seen one record that didn’t say a name cause so much of a firestorm.”

On what he thought of Wayne’s “Ghoulish” response: “It was horrible. It was trash. It wasn’t great.”

On why he hasn’t responded: “I haven’t said anything about it ’cause I didn’t think it was good enough to respond to.”

On Wayne saying there’s no beef: “He’s already said what he’s said. At the end of the day, I think him saying what he said was in his best interest, to admit that you were emotional in reacting to something. I still want to know what part pertained, what hit you? I wanna know.”

On whether he’s spoken to Kanye about the feud: “I don’t talk to ‘Ye about rappers. I blacks out. I get busy. I stand by myself. We ain’t talked about it once.”

On the Chris Brown vs. Drake beef: “I would have never thought that the two was at it like that. I really wouldn’t have put them together and that whole situation. I didn’t like it. You know Chris from Virginia. I ain’t like that. You know, bottles and cuts and all that… That’s weak.”

Chris Brown has weathered the ups and downs of the music industry, and now he’s sharing his knowledge with a group of budding stars. During an interview with Fuse, the R&B superstar introduced his Chris Brown Entertainment (CBE) roster, which includes singer-rapper Kevin McCall, rock diva Sabrina Antoinette, former RichGirl member Sevyn, rock group UgLy, and singer Joelle James, who he signed to Interscope after hearing her on YouTube.

As CEO and mentor of the label, he looks out for his artists and makes sure they don’t get a raw deal. “I want to make sure that every artist I work with is happy and they get a fair chance because we doing all the work,” said Breezy.

But if you’re looking to get signed by the CBE boss, just don’t approach him on the streets with your CD. “I hate that. I’ll listen to it, but nine times out of 10 it’s trash,” he laughed.
