G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T has updated fans on what he has on deck following the recent release of his My Name Is My Name solo album by revealing plans to hook-up with The Neptunes for some intense studio time.
According to Pusha, his new solo album, King Push, will come together following a 20-day studio run with Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo.
“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.” (Miss Info TV)
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)
Days prior, the Virginia native said there were no amount of pitches or suggestions he could make to convince No Malice to get back into Clipse mode.
“Man, I would really love to,” Pusha said when asked about a reunion project. “My brother is really on his mission right now. Listen, listen to how real this is. Listen to how real it is though. We had the 10th anniversary of Lord Willin’. 30 dates, needless to say, high dollar. High dollar, already done. Two weeks before it was time to go, my brother was like, ‘Nah, I don’t want to do it. I’m off that, I’m on my mission right now.’ You know, it’s about [his album] Hear Ye Him, it’s abotu where he is spiritually and he was like, ‘Nah, I’m not going to do it. Just go ahead.’ I asked him, now I had to do Coachella, 70,000, right? I’m like, ‘Yo, I’d love to bring you out.’ And he was like, all right, what song do you want to do?’ You know me, I want to do, ‘Keys Open Doors’ — he’s like, ‘Nah, I don’t really, I’m not really feeling that.'” (BBC Radio 1)
