The G.O.O.D. Music signee said that he is gearing up to release his debut solo effort— which will feature production from Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West—sometime in the fall.
In the meantime, fans can look forward to his Fear of God tape, which will be released “sometime in February,” he said. The Virginia MC said fans could expect, “hardcore hip-hop, taking that whole dynamic of the ’95 mixtape, competitive spirit,” he added. “And just going in on everything, any and everything. It’s old instrumentals, it’s new stuff, it’s original stuff. It’s just hard, it has to be hard to have a title like that.”
None of the cuts featured on the mixtape will be on the album,” he explained, “I like to keep every project in it’s own lane. As of right now, this thing is going to stand on it’s own.”
Pusha also cleared up any rumors about the status of his relationship with his brother Malice. “Malice is working on his book,” he explained. “That was always the plan. The plan was always to expand the Re-Up Gang brand. Right now, he took the path to work on his book. While he’s doing that, I was like I’m going to work on this music.” —Nicole LoPresti
