G.O.O.D. Music spitter Pusha T offers up another banger alongside MMG boss Ricky Rozay …
As the Virginia native preps his G.O.O.D. Music solo debut, he keeps the heat rolling with a slew of new tracks. On his latest, Pusha partners up with Rozay for a track dedicated to racks and rhymes.
In late 2012, Pusha spoke with HHW about the Cruel Summer album, rap beefs and the possibility of him ever working with the Young Money camp.
HHW: You were on more tracks than any other G.O.O.D. artist on Cruel Summer. Is Kanye prepping you to lead the team, or did it just turn out that way?
PUSHA T: At the end of the day, the whole album was a surprise to everybody. Everybody had the opportunity to lay verses wherever they wanted to, and I laid 20 verses or more to different records. What stayed did and what didn’t, didn’t. I heard the whole album on August 28. It wasn’t deliberate, that’s just how it happened. You got schedules like Common or Big Sean … 2 Chainz runnin’ around all over the place at the time, so everybody wasn’t there all the time.
HHW: I read that Birdman said something negative in an interview about G.O.O.D. Music that inspired your rhyme on “New God Flow.” That’s pretty dope that you flipped a negative into such a powerful verse.
PUSHA T: That’s what it’s all about. At the end of the day, it’s pretty lame and petty to get in interviews and talk crazy about people, but that’s the music business. Why do it that way when there’s a musical outlet where everybody can hear it? “New God Flow” was just one of those things where he was just right on time with his interview.
HHW: Could you ever see a circumstance where you and Birdman ever work together again?
PUSHA T: I mean … I don’t have any ill will. I don’t even know him personally like that. Without a doubt, these are guys that make good music, and put out a lot of music, but you can’t have someone like that, who has that many listeners, belittle you. You can’t have that because it could be damaging.
