    Kanye pulled Pusha aside and said, "I'ma let you finish, but I got this new Yeezus album that I'ma put out and it's gonna leave your album in its promotional dust. Cool?"

    Yeezy told Pusha he'd have to wait until G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Winter, Big Sean's Hall Of Fame and Watch The Throne II dropped before he put out his debut.

  • When Pharrell told Pusha he wouldn't be giving him any beats for the album, Pusha got so offended that he threw out his computer and all of the hard drives containing his new music. This angry yet affectionate display did not convince Pharrell to lace Push with any beats.

    Pusha decided to quit rap to pursue writing novels in Paris, a la Lupe Fiasco. The only difference? Pusha's novels would essentially be autobiographical memoirs about slinging cocaine.

    Upon hearing his sometimes-nemesis Drake's "Started From The Bottom" track about going from being a semi-successful child actor to a highly-successful adult rapper, Pusha's head exploded, leaving him unable to record any new songs or promote the album.

    After listening to his brother [No] Malice's Hear Ye Him album, Pusha decided that he also wanted to take the holy route, forcing him to scrap My Name and record a project full of religious raps.

  • Reigniting an old rivalry, former G.O.O.D. Music artist Consequence re-friended mentor Kanye West, forcing Pusha T in the awkward position of having to pretend to be friends with the Cons again. Unable to hold back his hatred, Pusha hit Cons over the head with a pool cue, prompting Kanye to kick Pusha out of the G.O.O.D. Music crew for… good.
