“How dare you sell a square fish, asking us to trust it?,” Pusha raps.
Pusha T teams up with Arby’s McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish diss track
Pusha T has delivered another diss track but this time it's to promote the new "Arby’s Spicy Fish sandwich"
The Virginia MC took to twitter to announce his new…er…collab, saying, “Just dropped a diss track with @Arbys. Grab some popcorn and a Spicy Fish Sandwich. #ArbysSpicyFishDissTrack #ArbysPaidMeButIWouldSayThisAnyway”
Arby’s dropped a promotional video for the collab, on Monday (March 21), which includes body shots aimed at Mickey D's in a body of water. “Filet-o-Fish is shit/And you should be disgusted,” Pusha raps at one point. Elsewhere, he delivers the scathing verdict, “A little cube of fish from a clown is basic/ Say less, this argument is baseless/ Drowned in tartar, that Filet-o-Fish is tasteless.” He also manages to impressively work in one of his signature cocaine puns: “If you know me and you know me well/ Our fish is gonna tip that scale.”
Take a Listen Below, “Spicy Fish Diss.”
Pusha T recalled he only received one check for writing the Golden Arches’ long-running “I’m Lovin’ It,” jingle, and he’s now out for revenge with the new Arby’s cut, “Spicy Fish Diss.”
In a new interview. “I am solely responsible for the ’I’m Lovin‘ It’ swag and the jingle of that company,” he told Rolling Stone. “That’s just real. I am the reason.”
“I’m Lovin’ It,” has become the longest-running marketing campaign in McDonald’s 82-year history, and while Pusha T claims he was paid $500,000 for the tune, with every passing year he regrets his contract more.
“I did it at a very young age at a very young time in my career where I wasn’t asking for as much money and ownership,” he said. “It’s something that’s always dug at me later in life like, ‘Dammit, I was a part of this and I should have more stake.’ It was like half a million, or a million dollars for me and my brother — but that’s peanuts for as long as that’s been running. I had to get that energy off me, and this [ad] was the perfect way to get that energy like, ‘You know what? I’m over it.’”
