Pusha T Explains Lifestyle Gap Between Himself and Kanye [VIDEO]
Pusha T’s new album, My Name Is My Name, is finally on-sale as of today after a number of delays. He first hit the scene in 2002 as a part of the rap duo, the Clipse. This is T’s first solo studio album with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. music. Although he reps Kanye’s label, he made it clear in an interview with Complex that the two are very different.
“He’s like ‘You leaving?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah man. I gotta go get some money.’” Pusha explained, “You know, you gotta spark these guys. You can’t just be sitting with these mother---ers. These guys are rich.”
Although they’re in different tax brackets, both emcee’s are masters of controversy. Kanye is… well, Kanye. And Pusha has been front-page news on Hip Hop media outlets with his well-documented feuds with Hip Hop heavyweights like Lil Wayne and Drake. Push explained that all these instances were well-calculated.
“I look at it a mile down the road in any decisions that I make. Especially now because I feel like the music game is at a point where like it’s probably the most not-credible form of entertainment. It’s the youngest art form. So, it’s like there’s certain things we’re supposed to uphold like realness and things like that. We don’t even uphold that.”
