Pusha T Promises "Best Album Of The Year" With "My Name Is My Name"

Pusha T pushes his "My Name Is My Name" release date back a month, confirms list of album collaborators.

With the release of a number of major studio albums over the past month, Virginia rapper Pusha T plans on letting the current musical climate return to normal before he treats fans to his debut solo album, My Name Is My Name. The album was initially set for release on July 16, but according to The Clipse rapper, My Name Is My name will now be released a month later.

While speaking with Charlotte’s Power 98, Pusha T addressed the reason behind the change of release dates and made quite the bold statement in regards to his debut as he dubbed the album “the best album of the year.”

“It’s been a lot of music coming out. You got the ‘Ye album, You got the Cole, the Wale. I think Hov’s album is even on the 4th (of July). But at the end of the day, I still stand my ground,” the “Numbers On The Boards” rapper explained. “That’s politics and logistics. My album is the best album of the year… I think the streets are going to have a classic hip-hop album. My Name Is My Name is definitely the hardest album that’s going to come out this year for sure.”

Additionally, Pusha T went on to confirm the list of producers and album features on My Name Is My Name. Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and more will provide their lyrical talents while Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, and Kanye West will handle the boardwork on the project.

Although a record from Kanye did manage to make its way onto My Name Is My Name, Pusha T says the Yeezus rapper didn’t give up the record without a fight.

“This record, man, I’m going to be honest. I had to fight and steal this record from ‘Ye,” Pusha revealed. “I heard the record and I loved it, and he called to tell me he wasn’t going to be able to give me the record. I ran in the studio real quick and laid a verse to it. I was like, ‘Nah, this is my record already. I already rapped to it. What are you talking about?’ We just went back and forth, and he ended up giving me the record.”

    "I might sell a brick on my birthday, 36 years of doing dirt like its Earth Day" - Pusha This shit could be dope. At least hes the best one on GOOD so i have some high hope.

      nicca 36 year old and hasnt sold a brick in 15 years AT LEAST if he ever even seen one in his life!, that shit is weak as fuck

  • COCA

    HE DIDN'T SAY BEST HE SAID HARDEST... I BET KANYE CRIED HIMSELF TO SLEEP AFTER ARGUING WITH PUSH ABOUT THE BEAT.

  • COCA

    I DON'T BELIEVE YOU... THAT CHOPPERS IN THE CLOSET WAS REPETITIVE AS FUCK AND THE POOPCAAN JOINT WAS JUST AIGHT... OVERALL FALLS SHORT OF EXPECTATIONS

  • Yeah Boy!

    Only way it could be "best album of the year" is if his wack as aint on it.

  • Anon Y Mouse

    I don't trust anything to be a classic if its got Future on it. But I like Pusha so we'll see.

    • dudetude

      Dude, its got Future, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean. Push is one of my favorate rappers but with a list like that you know it won't be a classic. None of those guys will be relevant in 5 to 10 years.

    let's cross our fingers. promise was shown in pusha's work with the clipse, let's hope he's not been diluted and become an imiation of kanye or wayne...like every other radio rapper...

      Those last two Clipse albums sold what again? That's right, triple wood. There's no expectation for this album cause there's been no expectation for Pusha T. He'll hype himself till the day he dies. Doesn't mean he's any closer to stardom.

    TYPICAL I KNEW THIS SHIT WOULD BE PUSHED BACK

  • Twillz

    I don't understand most of these trolls on these sites, praising ymcmb n all that, I mean ymcmb ain't bad, but not even close to amazing, wayne has completely lost it with good lyrics, drake is only good on stay scheming and fucking problems, and tyga, well he reminds me of Rick Ross with the whole "trying to sound hard when really you arnt" type shit. I personally think pusha Ts album won't be that bad, GOOD music always finds a way to put a hit or three on every album

    • imho

      you ever try reasoning with crackheads? thats what its like on this site with the 15 year olds who comment about waynes..its best left alone

    • Anonymous

      Yeah because the only albums that have come out of G.O.O.D have been Kanye's...shut up you faggot. Go do some research before you act like you know what you're talking about.

  • Chris Etrata

    Although not as ridicoulous as Montana's album of the decade, I doubt its going to be the best album of the year. Im leaning towards eminem for that.

    atlest hes alive shit- i didnt hear a PEEP from him since early may when he said his album was droppin that month cant say i blame him with kanye, jayz, cole, and Em lurkin in the shadown somewhere i woulda pushed back too.. pushas known but not that known for him to compete with heavyweights..yet..hopefully

  • Bobyahed2dis

    Pusha T wack as hell and he should give it up. nobody can survive an attack from weezy and YMCMB and expect their album to sell just go and ask Gay-Z. Good Music is a flopping label and common and kid cudi we're smart enough to jump ship while they could.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      I'm not dentaldamboy he's an accountant for YMCMB and im a longtime personal friend/apprentice of my fellow gangbanger weezy, we both grew up in the streets of Hollygrove together and made it out the ghetto to make good music, unlike kanye west who makes wack dubstep music.

      Could you make it any more obvious that you are dentaldamboy posting under a different name? What the fuck are you doing with your life?

      ^Jay just sold 1.3 million .... and owns all the rights and all the publishing masters... Are you stupid. #forbes

    • Anonymous

      hes projected to sell between 350 and 400k first week nigguh

    • Bobyahed2dis

      That's a fake above me and WTT only sold bc of kanye west, Jay-Z has been washed up for 10+ years and MCHG only gave samsung 1 mil it really sold under 100k.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      oh den tell Jay to stick it too me. always wanted that :3

      jays new album just sold more than waynes last

  • foreal

    i love push but it isnt right to say he will have the best album this year when his album just got pushed back. albums only get pushed back for a few reasons... not good enough or little buzz

  • Anonymous

    Im getting sick of niggas always saying this is my best album, this is my best album sofar. First proof it nigga then talk,

  • DrebinSlevin

    Pushing the album back is a stupid move. Cole pushes his album up and defeated Kanye West in second week sales. Wale got his first #1. Pusha could have made June/July and streak of sick summer albums.
