With his highly-anticipated LP, My Name Is My Name, set to drop next month, Pusha T is full promo mode for the album, and his recent stop landed him on the couch to speak with DJ Skee. In addition to speaking on Kendrick Lamar‘s controversial “Control” verse, Pusha went on to speak on collaborating with Justin Timberlake, and also shared that Kanye West will be contributing to six tracks on his upcoming album. In a recent interview with Hip Hop DX, Push also went on to confirm that K. Dot would be featured on the album on a song titled “Nose Stalgia,” which he explains as:
We gave two perspectives [on the song]. [Kendrick Lamar] was giving more, looking from the inside of his home and how his family and his crusade through the drug epidemic affected him. I was giving you the junior high, high school start, showing you what it was and where I was at.
Continuing to speak with HHDX, the Clipse emcee also went on speak on the concept behind another Pharrell-produced song set to appear on the album going to say:
I have a song produced by Pharrell called ‘Sorry Nigga, I’m Trying to Come Home,’” Pusha T Said. “The acronym for that is S.N.I.T.C.H. I personally don’t really want to hear anymore one-dimensional street raps. This is probably the most poignant record on my album. It’s the realest record. It just speaks from the perspective of knowing people who’ve turned over in the game. No rapper talks about that. Every rapper makes you feel like…they don’t know anybody [who has become a police informant] or [that] anybody in their crew hasn’t turned over…Everybody else gonna make you think that, ‘Yeah, we was doin’ this. We was doin’ that, and we got rich and there was no hiccups.’ And there’s been hiccups.
MNIMN will hit shelves October 8.
