Pusha T recently sat down with MTV to speak on his forthcoming solo album, which was inspired by the dark flick, Devil’s Advocate. During the interview, you will hear the re-up gang emcee speak on his writing process, see him in the studio, and then witness him spitting a few bars from his track, “40 Acres.” Press play above to check it out as well as see below for what Push had to say.

“40 Acres”: “One of the more thoughtful records would be ’40 Acres,’ and it’s produced by The-Dream and Rico Beats. It really harps on things that have happened in my life in regards to family — my brother being my partner, my parents not being together — speaking on how those things altered my views on relationships and so on.

“One of the lyrics goes, ‘Unpolished, unapologetic, might’ve broke a heart or two, but gave an honest effort/ You see my nonchalant attitude is always f— it/ 35 years of marriage, and my mama left it/ You shouldn’t question if you ever stood a chance with him, the better question is, did you enjoy the dance with him?/ I’ll probably never pull your chair out, bitch, you know this money grew your hair out, switch/ All that s— I bought, you wear out, rich/ But I’m the only one I care ’bout.’

“A lot of people, and men in general, don’t recognize that their selfishness towards women in a relationship probably has to do with something that has happened in their life before. I like to harp on things like that because people speak about relationships like it’s always so blissful but, like I said, my album is also based in harsh realities.”
