Pusha T Says He & Kanye West Don't Live The Same Lifestyle

Pusha T comments on the lack of a "warrior attitude" in the music industry, shares the reason behind his "My Name Is My Name" delay.

Over the past year, G.O.O.D. Music emcee Pusha T has become known for his on-and-off feuds with fellow rappers Lil Wayne and Drake, but according to the Virginia rapster, his words have been known to get a rise out of most people.

While speaking with Complex recently, Pusha T didn’t address his feuds with other artists, but instead spoke on the power behind his words and shared the reason why he chooses to be “super-calculated” with his moves within the music industry.

“Every time I say something I always get a rise out of everybody,” said the My Name Is My Name rapper. “The truth is it’s really a powerful thing. It really makes people act out of character…I’m super-calculated in everything that I do. Especially when it comes to this music game. I look at it a mile down the road in any decisions that I make. Especially now because I feel like the music game is at a point where like it’s probably the most not credible form of entertainment. It’s the youngest art form. So, it’s like there’s certain things we’re supposed to uphold like realness and things like that. We don’t even uphold that.”

Pusha T further commented on what he feels is the absence of realness among those in the genre of Hip Hop as he touched on a lack of what he referred to as a “warrior attitude.”

“It’s one thing to not think before you speak and not give a damn, but I think a lot of people do care about what they say,” said Pusha. “They don’t even have that warrior attitude to not even give a fuck and just say what you want. Even if you make a mistake or say something that you don’t mean, you can be a man and be like ‘Oh yeah, you know what? I take that back. I ain’t mean it.’ But just to have that attitude, people don’t even have that. You know, I just basically learn that a lot of people aren’t like studiers of like the art of war. I learned a long time ago the best way to combat anything in this industry is by just keep constantly putting out good music, no pun intended.”

    Just Damn, In a year ladled with many major releases, Pusha Ts, My Name Is My Name some how manages to buck both trends and every other major release, to be become one of best records released this year. In many ways it seems to be Yeezus done right, while the rest reaks of raw undiluted metaphors and lyrical skill. But where Yeezus and Magna Carta Holy Grail failed, My Name Is My Name gets it so right. Pusha T has undoubtedly cemented himself as a true quality driven artist with this LP. Every track feels carefully thought out and is mechanically sound, while all featured artists are utilized to their max potential, enhancing both the mood and style of the album. (Especially Kendrick Lamar on Nosetalgia) All of the beats are both creative, while still folding into the album nicely. Particular Standouts include those done by the Neptunes and Good Music. Pusha T is quite effective at painting a lifestyle good bad turned to artist hungry to reach the top of the game. While Yeezy, excellent production serves as a suitable backdrop. The different between this and Yeezus, however is that Pusha T, truly retains the lyrical ability to back it up. It is difficult not to reap this album enormous praise, when it so perfectly delivers on exactly what was promised. Perhaps the only real "issue" with this LP are the questionable additions of MC; "Big Sean" and "2 Chainz" neither of which can even come close to holding their own lyrically with Pusha. Both of there versus feel unintentionally awkward and funny on and all but introspective and fascinating album. Yet, neither of them are truly enough to detract from the album as a whole. Surely, a classic in the making. A well deserved, 4.5 out of 5.

    His album is one of the best of the year by far. The beats, the bass, the cadence. Its really impressive.

    Why does this site spend so much time hyping Pusha T? Some dudes just don't have what it takes to make the transition to stardom. He's got skill, but in 2013 that's not enough.

      it's called promotion little kid. this site just breaks up one interview into many to keep getting hits and visitors. learn something about the business world. and if what you said to be true, then you go get a job with no skills and see how far that gets you.
