Pusha T and McDonald’s controversy explained: Rapper despises McDonald’s McRib on behalf of Arby

Pusha T has come up with one more diss track towards McDonald’s and this time it’s for McRib, however what’s going on with all the meat? Several months earlier, Pusha T joined Arby’s and came out with a jingle for them. In the midst of this, he made sure to throw some shade on McDonald’s as well. Pusha T has a major problem, however, this time it includes a sandwich. For a promotional campaign with fast food chain Arby’s, Pusha T delivered the country-inspired video for ‘Rib Roast,’ a diss track throwing punches at McDonald’s McRib sandwich and hyping up Arby’s Real Country Style Rib sandwich.

Pusha T gets hot, excusing McDonald’s mystery meat compared to Arby’s. In a collaboration with the fast food chain, Pusha also launched Arby’s Country Style Royal Collection, limited-edition merchandise, including t-shirts, jackets and scarves. He is no stranger to fast food based rap fights. Lately, the rapper started a partnership with Arby’s, giving voiceovers to his commercials. Pusha T recently delivered ‘Disspicy Fish Diss’ focusing on McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish Sandwich for Arby’s Fish Sandwiches.

Beef between rapper Pusha T and McDonald’s

The drama began when Pusha T joined the popular jingle ‘I love it’ with Justin Timberlake. For the piece, Justin reportedly received $6 million and Pusha T received $500,000, according to Cheatsheet. To add to this, he has no royalties, and that means he is not earning anything through the song. The difference in their pay was a result of the number of fans and visibility the two artists had at the time. Considering that the rapper was very new to the industry and Justin Timberlake was a notable name, his salary also varied accordingly. According to Spoon University, the song was delivered by The Neptunes and Pharrell Williams has been credited as the writer of the tune, along with Tom Batoy, Franco Tortora and Andreas Forberger, the creative director of Heye.

Pusha T’s name is not mentioned, but the executive director of the translation advertising agency, Steve Stoute, came forward in 2016 and claimed that the rapper had composed the tune. Be that as it may, McDonald’s has not commented on the matter. On September 27, the rapper chose to do another diss track, and this time he called it McRib. The one minute and twenty second song goes on to say how Arby’s has real country style beef and McDonald’s has nothing against them. This is not the first time the rapper has come up with a diss track. Several months earlier he delivered a diss track for McDonald’s filet-o-fish. Both rappers have figured out how to get the attention of many and social networks love the rapper’s opinion of going against McDonald’s. In the midst of this, McDonald’s has not released an announcement about what is happening.
