Pusha T And McDonald’s Controversy Explained: Rapper Disses McDonald’s McRib On Behalf of Arby

Pusha T has another diss track against McDonald’s, this time for McRib, but what’s up with all the beef? A few months ago, Pusha T teamed up with Arby’s and launched Jingle for them. In the process, he also deliberately cast some shadows on McDonald’s. Pusha T has a main beef, but this time it includes a sandwich. In a promotion with fast-food chain Arby’s, Pusha T featured a country-style video for “Rib Roast,” throwing jabs at McDonald’s McRib sandwiches and expanding Arby’s Real Country Style Rib sandwiches.

Pusha T is on fire, forgive the comparison of McDonald’s mystery meat to Arby. In its partnership with the fast-food chain, Pusha also dropped Arby’s Real Country Style Collection, a limited-edition item that includes T-shirts, jackets and headscarves. He’s no stranger to fast-food-based rap brawls. Most recently, the rapper began a partnership with Arby’s to dub its commercials. More recently, Pusha T launched “Spicy Fish Diss” focusing on McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwiches with Arby’s fish sandwiches.

The beef between rapper Pusha T and McDonald’s

The plot begins with Pusha T joining Justin Timberlake on the popular “I love it” jingle. According to Cheatsheet, Justin deserved $6 million and Pusha T got $500,000. Apart from that, he has no royalties, which means, he doesn’t make any money from this piece. The difference in what they paid was due to the number of fans and popularity of the two artists at the time. Considering the rapper is very new to the industry and Justin Timberlake is a well-known name, their salaries have changed accordingly. According to Spoon University, the song was provided by The Neptunes, and Pharrell Williams is credited with authoring the melody along with Tom Batoy, Franco Tortora and Heye’s creative director Andreas Forberger.

Pusha T wasn’t mentioned by name, but Translate Ads CEO Steve Stoute came forward in 2016 and assured that the melody was written by the rapper. Still, McDonald’s had no comment. On September 27, the rapper chose to make another diss track, this time he named it McRib. The one-minute, 20-second song goes on to tell how Arby’s has real country-style meat, and McDonald’s has nothing against them. This isn’t the first time the rapper has appeared on a diss track. A few months ago, he released a diss track for McDonald’s Filet Mignon. Both rappers figured out how to get the attention of countless people, and social media loved the rapper’s take on McDonald’s. In the meantime, McDonald’s has not made an announcement about what’s going on.
