10 Reasons Why Pusha T’s ‘My Name Is My Name’ Won’t Drop On July 16th
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.
For the past six months, Virginia-bred MC Pusha T has been promoting the release of his debut solo LP My Name Is My Name, originally set to be released July 16th. Via interviews, viral videos and just about every media outlet you can imagine, Pusha had his sights on that date, and rap fans fittingly got hyped to watch him finally strike out on his own.
