It’s been an active couple days for Pusha T.
Earlier in the week, King Push dropped one of the hottest songs of the year with the JAY Z-featured “Drug Dealers Anonymous” — and then revealed all it takes is damn email (and a cold ass beat) to get Jay on a track.
And now? Steve Stoute unveiled Pusha T wrote the infamous McDonald’s “I’m Lovin’ It” jingle.
Long rumored that Justin Timberlake and Pharrell wrote the tune, Stoute, the head of the marketing firm Translation, said Pusha is the one to credit. And, given it was MCDONALD’S, you know, the largest fast food company in the world, how were the checks? “Nobody was upset,” Stoute said, noting he couldn’t remember the exact number because the deal went down 11 years ago.
Watch Stoute’s full interview on HOT97 below. (Fast forward to 3:50 if you wanna jump to the McDonald’s talk.)
