In terms of Kanye West’s album (are we still calling it SWISH?), Pusha said he doesn’t even want to call Kanye right now because he knows the type of zone he’s in. “He can call me, but I’m not calling him for nothing,” he said. King Push also said of all the artists on G.O.O.D. Music, he plans to drop Big Sean‘s album first in 2016. Seeing as Pusha still plans on releasing King Push in April, it seems Sean Don’s album will come before then. Big Sean released Dark Sky Paradise in February this year, so maybe we’ll get two Big Sean albums within a calendar year.
Within the interview, Pusha also told a cool story about his beginnings with Clipse. “Grindin'” had been out for nine months, Pusha said, before it became a hot single. Within those nine months before it was accepted by the masses, King Push said he and his brother were doing $2,000 shows for “every drug dealer in the country.” Eventually, LA Ried went to radio stations and threatened that “heads will roll” if “Grindin'” didn’t sell more for how much it was being played.
