Pusha T Says His Favorite "Cruel Summer" Tracks Didn't Make The Album

Pusha T laments that a particular song was left off of "Cruel Summer."

Despite being prominently featured in G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer, Pusha T thinks the project could've been better.

In an interview with Complex, Pusha explained that his favorite cuts were left off of the album.

"My favorite record was probably records that didn’t make the album," explained Push. "People don’t know there were records where Common was rapping over—like, we had Common rapping on strip club records. Do you know how great that shit was? That shit was so good that it was like—it’s annoying that I don’t know if people will ever hear this shit."

The Virginia emcee explained how Common stepped outside of his comfort zone. "You know me, you know my perspective. You got me, you got Big Sean, and then you have Common who’s super conscious. He has a whole ‘nother perspective. He was really rapping and really wanted to get on this record. He heard our verses and was like, 'Man, I’m laying one to this.' I’m like, 'Are you for real?' He’s like, 'I’m doing it.'"

Pusha recalled coming back to the studio, only to find that Common laced the new track perfectly. "We leave and come back—we were in LA—and he laid a monster fucking verse. And I don’t think people are going to hear it. Cruel Summer was a collection of verses and raps and songs and it was almost done like ‘Ye’s album. The biggest thing that shocked me [about My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was] when I got over there, [Kanye] opened up his album to everybody. That’s how Cruel Summer was. Cruel Summer was a ton of beats and he was like, 'Yo, lay verses to this shit.'"

    Is this guys serious??? He's going to say that his favorite record was a record that Common was rapping about strippers???? This is why Pusha hasn't come out with an album yet....it's called decision making? How the hell has he been singed going on 3 years and Big Sean is about to drop his second album before you drop your first? I like Pusha.....I have all the Clipse albums and have all his mixtapes but I call it how I see it...he has no versatility....still 10 yrs later he's talking about the same things???? He gets on Drake and Wayne but isn't proven that he can make an album by himself. At least both Drake and Wayne have come out with both commercial & critically acclaim albums I'm still waiting for his!!!!!!!!

    I really like Common's conscious stuff, so I don't really want to hear him rapping on a strip club song.

      agree with reality check A your logic is off. Suge Knight was MC Hammer's boss does that make him a kingpin. come on brah

    • Reality Check

      Just because your manager is a boss, it doesn't make you a kingpin. Just because Big Meech managed Blue Davinci, it didn't make Blue a boss or even a shooter. He was just a rap artist, who sometimes transported drugs in his vehicle for the operation. The Clipse probably were the same or less for their manager...lol

      Do your homework. The clipse manager got popped a couple years back big time in Virginia Beach. Those dudes have been doin it for a long time, just so happens he is in a different light since he's rocking with Kanye now.
