Pusha T Explains Why He’s Past Any Rap Beef, Talks 2Pac Inspiring His Work With Pharrell & New Album
Pusha T has channeled new energy behind his latest album release ‘It’s Almost Dry’ and while the New York native admits to consistently being connected to many controversies, his fourth studio effort highlights a new page turned, if you will, but still the signature heat that only the King can deliver.
Speaking with the Power 106 Mornings Show co-hosts Letty, Teddy Mora, and Javen Cannon, Push details working with hip-hop producer legend Pharrell Williams and Kanye West. As he’s worked closely with these two over the course of his career, the work ethic that each rap staple brings out of him is different but meets the same result. As Push reveals there’s only a handful of people who can actually critique his work, which includes the likes of Ye, Pharrel, his brother Malice, Diddy, and The Dream, the “Dreamin’Of The Past” rapper shares how Pharrell pushes him to focus on memorable hooks while Ye pushes his pen game.
‘It’s Almost Dry’ clearly marks a new wave for Push, who says that as long as he’s still in rap and still competing, then he will compete to be one of the best in the game.
Pusha T goes on to share his thoughts on society blaming the hip-hop genre, and even himself, for the portrayal of substance abuse in the culture, what his close relationship was with the late Nipsey Hussle, his experience losing the Best Rap Album Grammy to Cardi B, and much more.
