G.O.O.D. Music stud Pusha T is piecing together new tunes for his upcoming King Push solo album by hooking up with The Neptunes' Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo.
The Pusha Man treated fans to intimate in-studio photos alongside the hitmakers this week.
The boys are back. In December, Pusha T spoke about his follow-up to My Name Is My Name, revealing he'll be in the studio with his former running mates The Neptunes. The studio sessions would be a 20-day run starting Jan. 2, and true to his word, Pusha took some photos of Pharrell and Chad Hugo.

Last month, Pusha revealed the LP would come together following a 20-day studio run with the Neptunes.
"I don't know when I'm dropping the next one but I can tell everybody, January 2, me, Pharrell and Chad are going into the studio for 20 days," Pusha revealed in an interview with hip-hop personailty Miss Info. "Chad the Ghost. Me, Pharrell and Chad are going into the studio for 20 days, in Miami, and that's it. Like, that's what's going to start off the King Push album. Title is definitely King Push."

A few months ago, Pusha revealed G.O.O.D. Music head Kanye West wanted him to slim his debut LP down to no more than nine records.
"It's twelve songs and I had to fight for twelve because it was only supposed to be nine," Pusha revealed in an interview. "Ye only wanted nine records. And I was like, 'I got twelve, man!' [laughs] And my win was, 'Man, Yeezus got ten songs, so how you only gonna give me nine?' [laughs] Then he had to sort of think about it and be like, 'All right, man.' And he just let me get my artist thing off." (NPR)
Recently, Pusha spoke on his G.O.O.D. Music team and why a Clipse reunion would likely not go down in the immediate future.
"Yeah, I'm not running with my brother right now. I would much rather be in a group now. I know my brother is in a very spiritual place. His belief is strong and he love where he is, but I'm his younger brother and I am selfish. I don't know if I want my brother to not be with me right now. When you ask me if I'm angry or where does this edge come from, I have a lotta thoughts in my mind when I'm rhyming or when I hit the stage or when I'm talking about music. Music is not all happy to me. It hasn't been the greatest in every aspect. I could easily sit here and be like, "I take care of my family and I drive Benz's and do what I wanna do." But we'd been doing things like that and I don't need music to do that. It's a little more personal with me. I think that personal side comes out as anger in my music." (Murder Dog)
