If his Twitter and Instagram accounts are to be believed, Pusha T doesn’t take too kindly to racist business practices. The Virginia rapper took to both social media platforms over the past two days (June 1-2) to decry Venue Sports Lounge, a bar and grill in Virginia Beach.

It seems as if Pusha and his party were attempting to enter the establishment, but were held up by what the former Clipse member believes to be an imperative from management to bar Black patrons. Pusha even found the culprit on Instagram and called him out directly:

At press time, Venue had yet to comment on the matter; XXL will have new information as it becomes available. Pusha starred in the early- and mid-2000s as one-half of the Clipse, the duo he formed with his brother, who then rapped under the name Malice. Their first two albums, 2002′s Lord Willin’ and the long-delayed 2006 follow-up, Hell Hath No Fury, were critical darlings. Since striking out on his own, Pusha has aligned himself with Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music. He has released one solo album, My Name Is My Name.
