UGK’s Bun B recently dished out his respect for G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T and called him one of the best musicians in the industry.
Bun applauded the Clipse rapper on Instagram late Wednesday (January 20).
Last August, Pusha spoke out on receiving an epic co-sign from music mogul Dr. Dre.
“It blew my mind, actually. I haven’t had any interaction with Dre, or Ren, ever. It’s ironic because I was super hyped when Dr. Dre’s Beats 1 [show] promo was [Pusha T song] “Numbers On The Board.” I was like, “Aw, Dre probably got some kid [to do the promo] — how else would Dr. Dre know about Pusha T?” He’s such a huge figure, but to me, as far as my reach goes, he’s like a myth. You hear about him, you never see him — only on magazine covers. When something grandiose happens in the worlds of business or music, his name pops up. As far as me being a rapper, it just doesn’t happen, man. I was completely taken aback. I wanted to be Ren for that movie, actually.” (Billboard)
The Pusha Man initially hopped onto his Instagram page to acknowledge the love Dre showed him.
Interviewed by Top Dawg Entertainment’s Kendrick Lamar, both rap veteran MC Ren and Dr. Dre showered him and Pusha with co-signs.
As one of your offspring, anything I do comes from what y’all have done before me. I’m curious to know how you feel about my generation of artists.
MC Ren: I like a few. I like you.
Dr. Dre: You’re No. 1 on my list because of the care and attention you bring to your tracks and the precision you bring to your sound. There are a few people out there I listen to and respect.
MC Ren: Pusha T.
Dr. Dre: Definitely Pusha T.
MC Ren: I’m not saying this because you’re here, Kendrick, but I like your song “Cut You Off.” I’ve been listening to you for a minute. (Billboard)
