Young Money president Mack Maine spoke about the animosity brewing between YMCMB and G.O.O.D. Music. Things have been coming to a head ever since G.O.O.D.'s Pusha T released "Exodus 23:1" a track aimed squarely at Young Money star Drake.
"It's not like [a YMCMB/G.O.O.D. Music beef]. I don't see it like that," explained Maine. "That's not what we in the game for. If it ever came to that, God forbid, that's a whole different story, but right now we're just tryin' to get paper, we're just tryin' to get money, man, and make good music. And that was a great song ['My Homies Still' with Big Sean] that was made before that situation happened, and I'm not 'bout to go into the studio and tell Wayne to take [Big Sean] off. Wayne not tryna take him off - he's good peeps, he's fam...he killed [the song]. I think that's big for him. We're always collabin' with people and he earned it, he earned his way. He's been handling his weight on different tracks, and it's his time."
"In a nutshell, if a gnat or a fly keep flyin' around you, eventually you gonna swing and swat it and just get it out the way," he said. "Sometimes you swat it and the gnat dies; sometimes it just go away...you can keep flyin', just fly somewhere else, though. We chillin.'"
