Pusha T Previews New Song "40 Acres," Says Solo LP Is Inspired By "Devil's Advocate"

Pusha T unveils a clip from a cut off his upcoming G.O.O.D. Music solo debut.

Pusha T unleashed a preview of his heartfelt track "40 Acres" produced by The-Dream and Rico Beats, a cut off his upcmoing full-length solo debut.

During an interview with MTV News, the Clipse member supplied the network with a clip from the song, which he explains delves deep into his personal life.

"One of the more thoughtful records would be '40 Acres,' and it's produced by The-Dream and Rico Beats," he said." It really harps on things that have happened in my life in regards to family — my brother being my partner, my parents not being together — speaking on how those things altered my views on relationships and so on."

Pusha continued by sharing some lyrics from the song. "One of the lyrics goes, 'Unpolished, unapologetic, might've broke a heart or two, but gave an honest effort / You see my nonchalant attitude is always f--- it / 35 years of marriage, and my mama left it / You shouldn't question if you ever stood a chance with him, the better question is, did you enjoy the dance with him? / I'll probably never pull your chair out, bitch, you know this money grew your hair out, switch / All that s--- I bought, you wear out, rich / But I'm the only one I care 'bout.'"

The Virginia native also shared that his upcoming solo LP, which is currently without a release date, is inspired by the 1997 film The Devil's Advocate starring Al Pacino, Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron. "This album was based off the movie 'Devil's Advocate.' Not theme-wise at all, but just in the feel of the album. 'Devil's Advocate' is a very dark movie, but at the same time, visually, it's beautiful. The album is based off of that because I speak about the harsh realities of street life but there's a lot of glitz and glamour that comes along with that. If you just look at it at face value, you might think, 'It sounds a bit like he's glorifying [street life],' but when you get tuned into the record, you realize that you get both sides of it," he explains. "There's a scene where one of Charlize Theron's girlfriends — a beautiful woman — is trying on clothes, and as Charlize is looking at her, her face turns into a monster. That's one of the scenes that really paints the picture of the beauty and the dark side of my album."

    No wonder this album has no release date. Pusha T has no buzz. This guy has no balls. He's not a real man at all. Pusha has to stick to people...can't do his own thing. First it was Malice, the Pharell, then Kanye and now Dream? I mean common, how lame do you have to be to cling to Dream? Pathetic. Devil's Advocate was a good movie, but it's not meaningful or impactful enough to have a "feel" that can translate into an album. WTF is he talking about? If this album ever does see the light of day, it will flop for sure.
