The Clipse‘s Pusha T has decided to keep fans waiting longer for his first official release since aligning himself with Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music by delaying his Fear of God mixtape.
Writing on Twitter, Pusha said the project would no longer drop next Tuesday.
“The Fear of God is no longer dropping on the 14.,” he tweeted late Thursday (September 9) night.
“Can I drop a single before you ask me for an album?”
“@ILLIONAIRE You gonna wait for mp3’s like everyone else n*gga.” (Pusha T’s Twitter)
The project is expected to feature production from Kanye West.
Pusha T will release the street album on the same day that Kanye West and his fellow G.O.O.D. Music signees, Kid Cudi, Consequence and Big Sean will release their respective albums. The upcoming mixtape is reportedly set to feature production from West along with all original verses, making it worthy of joining ranks with the highly-anticipated G.O.O.D. Music drop date.

Last month, Kanye West confirmed that Pusha was now on G.O.O.D. Music.
According to published reports, at a secret concert given by Kanye West in New York, Yeezy brought out his G.O.O.D Music artists and officially announced Pusha as one of them. Hot 97 on air personality Miss Info confirmed the reports on her blog: “Kanye along with the help of John Legend, Estelle, Consequence, Pusha T of The Clipse (who ‘Ye announced last night IS a part of G.O.O.D. Music) and others treated a select crowd to a memorable show.” (Hip Hop Wired)
Prior to moving over to West’s company, producer Pharrell Williams weighed in on Pusha linking with West.
“I think that’s gonna be amazing,” Pharrell said. “[Pusha] had been working with ‘Ye. I told him, ‘You should do that.’ We made a lot of great records together, and we’ll continue to make great records. I want him to grow and get other experiences out in the world. He’s gotta figure that out. He’s gotta go out there and see it. Make no mistake, lyrically, that kid is one of the greats — him and his brother. Lyrically, those guys are really serious. They’re well-respected by all of the good dudes. Jay-Z loves them, T.I., Jeezy loves them. All of your favorite rappers, they appreciate a Pusha line or a Malice line. They do. I’m saying with respect for all those artists — I work with those artists. I know the conversations we had. They like what they do. It’s been a long time coming for Pusha and what it is he’s trying to do. He’s gonna get it. And Malice too.” (MTV)
No further details on a new mixtape release date have been revealed as of now.
