With the release of Pusha T‘s highly anticipated
King Push DAYTONA album, the president of G.O.O.D. Music sat down with Genius’ Rob Markman to speak on a few topics.
On top of the album, which Nas says is a classic, Pusha also breaks down his relationship with Kanye and how they can coexist despite having different opinions on several issues, his favorite Pusha T record (“Drug Dealers Anonymous” with JAY Z, of course), his relationship with Nas, his longevity in the game, and more.
“I was trying to make The Purple Tape,” Pusha says, referring to Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album. “I was trying to make my best rendition of a Pusha T Purple Tape, ever. For people that know me, know the purple tape is like everything to me. I think me and ‘Ye did a damn good job.”
Push also spoke on dissing Drake on the project’s closing track, “Infrared,” with lines like, “Your hooks did it/ The lyrics pennin equal to Trump’s winnin/ The bigger question is how the Russians did it/ It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin.”
“I feel like everybody thought that ‘Two Birds, One Stone‘ was Pusha T, Cudi-aimed, so on and so forth, and that was fine,” he says, “I heard it, I felt like, okay, I can’t have an argument about how real I am. Let’s not do that. If it’s rap, let’s let it be that. And I’m just speaking my truth on this. I don’t think it’s anything disputable.”
