Pusha T is pro-Rae Sremmurd.

Pusha T is a pretty prime example of the kind of rap traditionalists tend to praise, so it was pretty cool to see the GOOD Music president come through to defend Rae Sremmurd on HOT 97 today.

Push wasn't afraid to challenge Ebro Darden's previous comments regarding the Sremm Bros and what he deemed an undeserved #3 spot on Complex's year-end list. "I don't know man, I sort of feel like you took their ranking a bit too personal," he said, going on to call the duo his "favorite group".

"It's the flows, the melodies. It's the actual song structure," he said of the Sremms appeal. "They make songs that I can't make, literally. I wouldn't make those songs, but I know how to enjoy their music fully... They make records that work on the radio. A lot of times records that work on the radio have a level of corniness to me. I don't feel like their records are corny."

When Darden played the rapper a video he recorded of his daughter listening to "No Type" and crying her eyes out, Push called it like he saw it -- "Izzy a backpacker man, it's all good."

Watch the interview below. The Rae Sremmurd conversation comes at the 20 minute mark.
