Pusha T talks on why his album will be the best one this year and on working with Kanye West.
Pusha T is set on having the best album of the year, with his debut solo album My Name Is My Name due out later in August, after a month delay. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper had no lack in confidence when recently discussing the highly anticipated LP, which is executive produced by Kanye West, with Esquire.
While talking to Esquire Pusha Ton explained why he thinks his album will be the best of the year. On what makes him so sure My Name Is My Name will outshine other rap releases, the rapper explained, "Well, I've heard a lot of them. And mine is better. [Laughs.] I just know what I'm looking to bring to the music game, and it's a certain level of energy. I've made the perfect album that I want to put in my car and ride to. It's a certain energy that makes you do stupid things like ride past the club three times with the windows down when it's cold outside just so people can hear what you're listening to. I made that album. And I was that stupid guy at one point, so I know I made it."
1/2 of Clipse also spoke on what it's like to work with Kanye West on his project. Pusha praised the G.O.O.D. boss. "Ye is a genius, man. Working under him, being a student, because that's exactly what I turned into — being a student under his school is a blessing," King Push said. "Somebody who's in touch and in tune with who I am as an artist — he's a fan of my work — and trying to expound on that and make that as great as possible, and still knowing how to be unorthodox, and still being Kanye West the mad scientist, the genius guy, and have those elements sprinkled over my hardcore, street rap music — you couldn't ask for anything else better. That's how great songs like "Numbers on the Boards" come out."
