Pusha T is getting revenge on McDonald’s for allegedly underpaying him. Pusha T claims that he wrote the iconic McDonald’s jingle “I’m Lovin’ It”and the fast-food chain paid him “peanuts.”
Speaking with Rolling Stone, Pusha T stated, “I am solely responsible for the ‘I’m Lovin’ It’ swag and the jingle of that company.”
He added, “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. It’s something that’s always dug at me later in life like, “Damnit, 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 [No Malice of Clipse]—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.”
Now Pusha T is fighting back with a diss track for McD’s competitor, Arby’s.
In the new jingle, “Spicy Fish Diss Track,” he raps, “I’m the reason/The whole world love it/Now I gotta crush it.”
