Pusha T released “M.F.T.R.,” a track from his forthcoming album, King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, yesterday (December 8).
On the track, Pusha T addresses Tyga’s situation at Cash Money Records, calling the rapper a “genius” for stepping out against the label.
“The illusion of money we don’t believe in / You ask me, Tyga looking like a genius,” the G.O.O.D. Music President raps on the track, which elsewhere features The-Dream.
During recently released footage from the song’s studio session, Pusha T appears to comment further on the track’s meaning.
“The whole inspiration for the album is the fact that I couldn’t find inspiration in muthafuckas,” Pusha T says. “I felt like everybody in Rap this year was just on some victim shit. You hear about muthafuckas getting smacked the fuck up. You hear about muthafuckas getting stolen from.
“I feel like I’m the last Rap superhero,” Pusha T added, reiterating sentiments he made during a recent interview with Billboard. “All these other muthafuckas is complaining, bitching, moaning. I don’t get no radio play, I don’t get none of that shit… Muthafuckas acting like their whole crews is breaking up. Y’all niggas rather be more famous than rich. I ain’t never lived my life trying to be famous, at all. I don’t give a fuck about that shit.”
