Pusha T reveals he's been in the studio with The-Dream and Tricky Stewart for "King Push," and explains how "Lunch Money" leaked.
Pusha T's first single off the highly anticipated sophomore solo album King Push, "Lunch Money," left some fans a bit confused, while others were loving the aggressive rhymes and weird-ass beat. Whatever the case may be, the song was actually inadvertently leaked by Google Play, something which Pusha Ton discussed during a recent interview with Revolt TV.
While we've only heard one record off King Push so far, Push is confident he'll once again have people calling his album "album of the year."
"I've been in with Kanye, I've been in with The-Dream and Tricky, and you guys are in store man this King Push album's gunna be album of the year," the former Clipse rapper said. "Kanye's gunna executive produce this one."
As for "Lunch Money," Pusha T explains the story behind the leak. "What people don't know is, "Lunch Money" wasn't supposed to come out when it did. It was an accident," Push said. "In dealing with iTunes and Google Play and things like that, you have to queue it up early. So we queued up a version early, for the space, and ‘Ye decided to take it out of the queue, because he wanted to do other things that you hear in the beat now. And you know, he be gone, I be gone, things get lost in translation and it didn’t get taken out of the queue for Google Play. So that’s how people had the wrong version first. And when people had the wrong version, and I found that out, I was like it has to go, we gotta just put it out."
