He knows that,” Pusha continued, “he knows that he can’t talk to me from any ledge. You can’t do it. He knows. I’m too proud to ask someone not to move in a certain way. I don’t do it. But I’m going to react like Coo Coo Cal the fuck I want when I feel that something is not going in my favor. That’s how it is, man.”
