Happy Birthday, Pusha T!
Happy Birthday to Virginia rapper and G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T! Today he turns 41.
Born Terrence Thornton, Pusha T made his way into the hip-hop industry in 1992 when he and older brother No Malice decided to form a rap duo known as Clipse. Since then, the Virginia native has joined forces with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music and released a chart topping debut album, My Name Is My Name. Pusha is one of the most respected rhyme-slingers in the game and based off the success of his first album, everyone is waiting for more new music. But Pusha is not only a rapper, but also a business man, moving into the worlds of streetwear fashion and technology. In 2015, Pusha was officially named the president of G.O.O.D. Music and instead of dropping his highly-anticipated sophomore album, King Push, the Pusha man dropped what he referred to as a prelude project, Darkest Before Dawn, that December.
Since dropping his last album, Push has been keeping busy, playing a big role in signing 2016 XXL Freshman Desiigner while making sure the G.O.O.D. Music ship is never sinking. He's also popped up with an inumerable amount of stellar guest verses to remind you his pen game is as sharp as ever.
In a bit of great news for fans, Kanye and Push himself confirmed that his new album, which doesn't yet have a title, is all set to drop on May 25. Needless to say, the rap game's got a lot to look forward to.
Whether you find yourself reminiscing about performing the euphoric "Grindin" beat on lunch tables or blasting his verse on Future's "Move That Dope", it's easy to recognize Pusha T's longevity in the rap game. Salute.
Happy Birthday, King Push!
