Gunna backtracked on the Pushin P debate.
During uninterrupted’s appearance in “The Shop,” the Atlanta rapper once again addressed allegations that he stole the slang for the DS4EVER hit from the Bay Area. When music boss Steve Stoute asked about the accusations, Gunna didn’t seem bothered by the reactions and said the term was universal.
He said, Come find out, and they’re just from player. “That’s what I got from him, like my brother, everyone was an actor. Your uncles and aunts, they were actors.”
He went on to explain that he was introduced by “old drug boys” from the Porters Ridge neighborhood in Georgia, where he grew up. “I learned that from them. I came into the game and ran with him.”
Gunna previously credited her father for teaching her “player” ways. “My 🅿️operations taught me how to be 🅿️a laya a long time ago. Pz worldwide,” he said in January.
“The world is just now catching on because of the song, but Atlanta and LA people who know me know,” he said. “That’s why it hit hard, too, because I really been kicking P outside of music. So when I bring it to music, it’s like, yeah, that’s really him. He ain’t lying.”
Despite the controversy, it’s impossible to deny gunna’s influence, with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Nike referring to “pushin P.”
