Eager fans hoping to wait in line on Black Friday this November can stay in bed as The Clipse’s Pusha T has nixed plans to drop his G.O.O.D. Music debut the day after Thanksgiving.
Pusha, who has yet to come up with a title, said the project is still in its early stages.
“No, no, no, I’m not going to put it out on Black Friday,” Pusha revealed in an interview with radio personality Bootleg Kev. “It’s not finished. The actual album is not finished and I don’t have a title for it yet. Do not. I’ve been making records. I’ve got eight records. I don’t know what’s gonna make the album. We’ve found a groove though. We’ved definitely found a grove. I can honestly say, with Ye executive producing this thing, it’s going to be a masterpiece. Lyrically, know one thing, lyric-driven. 100 percent. Street. Street. For sure.” (Bootleg Kev)
Recently, Pusha revealed plans to drop the LP this November.
“We’re gonna put out the album on Black Friday, you know what I’m saying,” Pusha said in an interview. “Still more music coming, man. You know what I’m saying? We’re out here [in Las Vegas] shooting the ‘Alone In Vegas’ [music] video right now. Long Live The Cane project coming soon as well. Big shout-out to Re-Up Gang, Malice, you know.” (DJ Franzen TV)
Earlier this year, Pusha talked to SOHH about how he envisions the LP’s concept.
“The way I want to put out my solo album, those ideas are definitely taking form right now,” Pusha told SOHH. “It’s just that I want the world to understand that in The Clipse, well, I look at it like this. A lot of people understand the dichotomy with Pusha being more brash, the more wordplay-type one. And then you have my brother, Malice, being the more introspective and more conscious-driven. And it’s not that I don’t think like that, it’s just the fact that we play roles in our group. And we’re d*mn good at that. And I’m d*mn good at this. And it’s not that I don’t have those views, I think I just want the world to get a full 360-degree perspective of myself, my opinions and my mind.” (SOHH)
In 2010, Pusha detailed his motivation for seeking a solo album.
“We got Re-Up Gang Records, so we’re trying to exercise every aspect of putting music out there. The Clipse will definitely be putting more music out. But it only makes sense for us to do solo projects and build a catalog with solo records by ourselves as well as [our artist] Ab Liva…I think I’ve grown with every Clipse album, but there’s an emotional side of Pusha that people need to see. I want people to get a little more in tune with my thought process. A lot of times people hear me and think, ‘Wow! That’s a dope verse!’ but it’s way beyond that with me. I want people to understand who I am and get inside my thought process. I think I can do that with a solo project.” (VIBE)
