Pusha T announced the release date of his Darkest Before Dawn album this week and with it comes a media run with interviews that reveal tidbits about the project and allows fans and media alike to put the pieces of the puzzle together to formulate our own opinions and conclusions. In an interview with Billboard, Pusha compares old school rappers like Jay Z and Raekwon to superheroes and says he feels like "the last rap superhero." The feeling led to a more aggressive attitude and mind state during the recording process.

"When you look at just the state of rap [now], I feel like it's a lot of complaining and vulnerability, and rappers being victimized....That's not the attitude that my favorites had and that's not the attitude that the greats had when I was coming up," he said in the story. "These guys were really like superheroes to me -- they dressed fresh, they rapped fresh. I thought they owned the world. I look at rappers now and it's like, man, it's just a sad case of poor business and the artistry is being questioned -- it's just too much."

Later in the story, Pusha revealed that he has an emotional verse from Beanie Sigel on the album and that he will drop an accompanying mini-movie that was directed by Kid Art and funded by Jay Z.
