“Look at the records that Ye just put out,” Pusha T says of the material from label boss Kanye West, whose SWISH album is slated for a February 11 release. “‘Real Friends’ and ‘No More Parties in L.A.’ have an aesthetic that is just real rap. It’s authentic. The purists are going to love everything that we’re doing. G.O.O.D. Music is the culture so I feel like this year – and every year – is the year for us. I mean if you look at the culture and what it’s doing, they’re always taking something from our pot. Whether it’s sneakers, fashion, music – I mean let’s just be honest. So it’ll definitely be a great year for us.”
One of Pusha T’s plans is to deliver the follow-up of one of the company’s 2012 projects.
“What I would like to have happen is another Cruel Summer,” he says. “That’s what I would like to happen. We’re feverishly working towards that. I’m really hoping that it happens.”
As for other albums, he says that his Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, which was released December 18, 2015, kicked off the next wave of G.O.O.D. Music releases.
“I started with the prelude with Darkest Before Dawn,” he says. “We gotta get this Ye album out. The rollout of that is very important. Sean is ready as well. And King Push is going to be coming very, very soon.”
