Pusha T, the rapper/president of G.O.O.D. Music, is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album King Push: Darkest Before Dawn. So far we’ve heard the first single “Untouchable,” and we’re already anticipating an album of the year contender, especially after reading Pusha’s latest interview with Rolling Stone.
In the interview, Pusha discusses his responsibilities as president of G.O.O.D., what to expect on his album, and the status of Kanye West’s SWISH. Read a few excerpts below, and the full interview here:
On his new album:
In regards to the sound, I feel like My Name Is My Name is a bit more lighthearted than what I just created. I sat with Timbaland, I sat with Kanye, I sat with Sean Combs, Boi-1da, Nashiem Myrick, Mario Winans, Baauer, Mano and got from each of them the darkest part of their souls on these beats, and it marries everything I’m doing right now lyrically.
On his duties as G.O.O.D. Music president:
I’m responsible for overseeing releases, rollouts and pretty much everything else that’s fan-oriented — bringing the business full circle, whether it’s merch and things as a collective that we can do with touring.
On Kanye’s SWISH:
I haven’t worked on it at all, but everything I’ve heard is phenomenal and it has nothing to do with any of the other records that were released before. That’s all I can really say about it. He’s super meticulous about the messaging about his album but you guys are in for a treat.
