Pusha T details two records off his upcoming album, "My Name Is My Name," including one with Kendrick Lamar.
Pusha T previously revealed quite a few of the features and producers we can expect on his upcoming album My Name Is My Name. One of those artists is Kendrick Lamar, and Pusha has now revealed more details on their collaboration, called "Nose Stalgia."
There will undoubtedly be memorable bars on a collaboration between wordsmiths Pusha Ton and Kendrick. As the G.O.O.D. rapper describes the record to HipHopDX,
"We gave two perspectives [on the song]. [Kendrick Lamar] was giving more, looking from the inside of his home and how his family and his crusade through the drug epidemic affected him. I was giving you the junior high, high school start, showing you what it was and where I was at."
For the album, Pusha says he takes on a 'conscious dope boy' perspective. "I speak from the perspective of a conscious dopeboy," Pusha T said of the album. "At the end of the day, it's sort of like giving people my perspective, letting them know my true thought process. I don't really know if people look at me as a conscious person. I think they hear a lot of gratuitous raps, they hear a lot of braggin', but I feel like this bein' my solo project, I can honestly give you my full perspective."
Pusha also detailed one other record off his release, which is called "Sorry Nigga I'm Trying To Come Home" or "S.N.I.T.C.H."
"I have a song produced by Pharrell called 'Sorry Nigga, I'm Trying to Come Home,'" Pusha T revealed. "The acronym for that is S.N.I.T.C.H. I personally don't really want to hear anymore one-dimensional street raps. This is probably the most poignant record on my album. It's the realest record. It just speaks from the perspective of knowing people who've turned over in the game. No rapper talks about that. Every rapper makes you feel like...they don't know anybody [who has become a police informant] or [that] anybody in their crew hasn't turned over...Everybody else gonna make you think that, 'Yeah, we was doin' this. We was doin' that, and we got rich and there was no hiccups.' And there's been hiccups."
My Name Is My Name is slated to drop on October 8th.
