Kanye West Praises Pusha T's G.O.O.D. Music Debut

Pusha T recalls Kanye West praising his new album, says it reminds him of Hell.

Since signing with G.O.O.D. Music in 2011, fans have been anticipating Pusha T's debut LP from the house of Kanye West. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, the Clipse alum recalls the Chicago super producer's reactions to his impending debut Devil's Advocate.

Pusha T said that Kanye's initial response to his album, whose name is taken from the 1997 Al Pacino film, positive, comparing it to a vision of Hell. He went to say to describe his anticipated project, saying that "the streets will be happy" with its sound.

"When it's over, he says, 'Yo, you know that if you die and hear your music, you know you ended up in hell, right?' " he says. "I don't know how to take that. Is that a good thing to say or a bad thing to say...he was like, 'Damn you painted some hell of a picture in this joint,' I was like, 'Well I guess the streets will be happy.'"

"Devil's Advocate is a very dark movie, but at the same time, visually 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."

    Push T doesn't have his own lane or sound. I'm expecting an average or slightly above average album but nothing special. And I would like to see Kanye return to his roots and drop an album with a few quality feature. MDBTF was great at first listen, but there is too much going on for it to be a truly timeless LP. If I buy it I'm buying it to hear Kanye on the track, not Nicki Pusha T and Jay Z

  • y'all stupid

    what the fuck is wrong with y'all dumb ass niggas you fucking kidding me??? Knaye was NEVER lyrical??!!!! college drop out, late registration? Graduation? mbdtf was great production at least 8 lyrically especially gorgeous...yall are some kanye west haters but thats why he's on top and y'all blogging and critizicing a man whose put out nothing but classics. Kanye is the weakest in his camp? really ...yet he's been praised by some of the greatest lyricist ever. y'all should never be allowed to comment on rap again.

      The guy doesn't have hot lines, he has classic verses. He's a whole other type of rapper. He makes hit, plays the mainstream beautifully. Is controversial, made out to be trash in the media, but I personally think Kanye is the only artist still putting out innovative records. MBDTF for this day and age is a classic, the production on that album is immense, the lyricism, the features, everything is on point and that's why it's a mainstream successful record and it's sold because it's what a classic is in todays music industry, you don't see albums like that these days. There's nothing different coming out, artists are just trying to play areas of the mainstream that haven't been done because they just don't work. What's worse is people actually acknowledge these artists. I'm not saying they can't do what they wanna but people seem to buy into anything these days to try and be cooler, playing anything for their image whether they like it or not because they're in fear of unpopularity. I don't even think Kanye is a top 5 rapper, but as an artist, he's undeniably successful and he does his thing, as a listener, I appreciate the music and love it for what it is. Also, I can't recall a good line, but I can list some good mainstream radio hits and songs that I personally think are better in comparison to what the media says is hot right now.

      i think you is stupid, he good on the production but being a lyricist he a 4/10. recall a line which you think he good

    Kanye praising and hyping an artist that is on his label? Wow, there's some really mind-boggling, breaking news. In other news, Kanye had corn with his dinner last night, and the turds to prove it.

      Kanye praising Pusha comes as no surprise, but his opinion is still interesting to a degree. I'm looking forward to this album so I guess Ye served his purpose and has hyped it up enough to at least get me wanting to hear it. I just wonder if Kanye is honest enough and whether or not he'd tell Pusha his music sucks and drop him if he wasn't in his opinion good enough for the label. I doubt Kanye cares too much for talent though, probably just wants some people to make him and his label money. I think he's made some crazy investments in some hopefulls.

    kanye aint that good as rapper i dont understand why everybody things he is hot. pusha t is boring as hell. Here we go again: a 40 year old rapper talking about being a drugkingpin. get a life, raise your kids and stop the bullshit music

      Kanye aint that good of a rapper, but he's a good artist and makes enjoyable music and he knows how to make hot tracks, stir up controversy and make money and be successful and he knows how to produce classics.

    thats bullshit. not every rapper is a "devils advocate". i believe all of GOOD music sold their soul to the devil. i dont listen to this devil shit. theres a difference between rap and rappers that are devil preachers. i listen to rap im not being a part of this devils advocate

  • dentaldamboy

    Bullshit. Kanye has nothing good to say about Pusha T. Pusha T is lying. You could tell Kanye doesn't give a fuck about Pusha cause he goes way harder on Birthday Song then on New God Flow. Also, Malice wrote New God Flow for Pusha. Check the writing credits.

    • Jay

      Kanye was always corny as hell lyrically...Every good music song he never had the best verse. You can find archives of Kanyes worst lines and corniest verses...he aint half of pusha t lyrically...i bet u either a nerdy young ass young dude or a hipster wit big glasses

      gee, i got push t's album and am from the hood and am damn happy ya-ha. i even united the crips and bloods and the eses we doing camp fires while roasting marshmallows while listening to devils advocate

    i like Pusha and ive always been a fan of The Clipse. "Chinese New Year" and "Nightmares" will always be some of my favorites from them... But with that being said, i got say this as well. Him throwing them subliminal shots at Drake/Wayne/YM was probably one of the best career moves hes made since signing to GOOD. If we were to be honest with ourselves, without his Dreams Money Can Buy freestyle and Exodus, he wouldnt be getting half the coverage hes getting now. Smart move on Pushas part

      all part of the game, but I disagree. He was getting mad promo on this site for months either way.

It looks like the people you have proofreading your shit are sleeping on the job or something.
