Kanye West Told Pusha T That ‘Yeezus’ Is Better Than ‘My Name Is My Name’
Miley Cyrus is expected to top the album charts this week, but one rapper is projected to have a solid, top-3 showing. G.O.O.D. Music rapper, Pusha T, finally dropped his solo album, My Name Is My Name, after multiple delays, and it’s expected to finish the week somewhere in the top 3.
Although the Virginia rapper is looking to sell somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 copies of the project, he’s estimated to sell up to 80,000 which still isn’t too shabby.
In an interview with Power 105.1 in NYC, Pusha talked about some friendly competition within G.O.O.D. Music. When asked if it was true that Kanye told him he though Yeezus was better, he responded with, “(Kanye) actually did tell me that.” Pusha has a different opinion, though, “Well, uh, I actually think my album is better.”
During the interview, he also shared some words of advice that Kanye gave him while assembling the project, asking him to avoid radio records. “Totally against radio records, man. We was just going to do what we wanted to do.”
Drake’s Nothing Was The Same should still put up a strong showing, but in an otherwise quiet week of Hip Hop releases, Pusha should have an extremely strong showing. Congrats and best of luck!
