Pusha T Passes on “Ni**as in Paris” Beat and Announces Follow-Up to “My Name Is My Name”
Pusha T stays working. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper just announced the release date of his solo album, and is already thinking ahead into the future. In a recent interview with AskMen, he recalled passing on “Niggas in Paris,” a track that went three times platinum last year. Also, he hints at another project after My Name Is My Name, which will be titled King Push. Get ready.
Kanye obviously has the platinum touch. Has he ever sent you a beat that you weren’t feeling?
Yeah. He sent me some stuff that I don’t always feel. It happens. Then he’ll go out of his way to prove you wrong. And he does sometimes…”N*gg*s in Paris.”
Wait. Kanye sent you “In Paris” first?
Steven Victor (Manager): Pusha said, “It sounds like a video game. Get that sh*t out of here!” But ‘Ye agreed.
Yeah. You have to have that imagination sometime, and that’s something I’m learning. I’m so ready to rap and stuff that imagination don’t be kicking in.
What else is on the horizon for you? Another G.O.O.D. Music compilation album?
I really don’t know. I’m really on My Name Is My Name, and then my next album after that. I already got the whole mentality of it. I see it. It’s titled King Push. I don’t even think there’s going to be anybody on King Push.
I like that. No features.
