Pusha-T has been fortunate enough to be assisted by great production throughout his musical career. In an interview, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper Pusha-T compared what it’s like working with producers Kanye West and Pharell Williams.
Pusha-T explained to foreign publication Le Black Et La Plume that Pharell usually finishes a beat for a song and then presents it to Pusha-T so he can write verses to complete a song. However, working with Kanye West is a bit more unorthodox. He explained that Kanye will play a snippet of an idea or sample for Pusha-T and then he has to write a complete verse based on that. After the verse is done Kanye will complete the rest of the beat based on the verse.
Pusha-T explained that both are perfectionists, but Pharell’s music comes more organically meanwhile Kanye is much more structured. Pusha-T says, “I think Kanye West is a master of structure and knowing what people are going to react to and respond to. He’s a hit maker.”
The 35-year-old rapper also talked about his upcoming album, which he describes as being “Full of harsh realities on top of a beautiful, beautiful sound bed from some of the greatest producers in the game.” He then went on to boast that the album will feature some of his best work lyrically.
Before the interview was over Pusha-T was asked about his verse on Alley Boy’s song “Your Favorite Rapper.” Where he questions Lil’ Wayne’s gangster image by asking, “How real is he if he’s been paying for his blood ties? He Blood in, he blood out at a blood drive.” He confirmed that the verse was aimed at Lil’ Wayne, but the beef is not personal.
TheCelebrityCafe.com reported on the beef that started between Lil’ Wayne and Pusha-T back in May when Pusha-T released “Exodus 23:1.”
