Today marks the six-year anniversary of Kanye West’s critically acclaimed album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. G.O.O.D. Music President Pusha T took some time to write a letter via Instagram addressing Kanye and talking about his contributions and the opportunities he was given with this LP.

“You invited me to Hawaii and said, ‘Pick whatever tracks you love and write to all of them,’” Pusha wrote. “I got greedy, I stopped going to play basketball with you every morning and proceeded to write to 8 songs on your album. Thinking back on it, it really was all a set-up. You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as. So on the 6th anniversary of MBDTF and as the President of your label G.O.O.D. music, I wanna say thanks for the endless opportunities you have brought to me.” Read the full letter below and check out Pusha’s recent GQ interview here.

6 yrs ago today I was apart of one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. You invited me to Hawaii and said “pick whatever tracks you love and write to all of them.” I got greedy, I stopped going to play basketball with you every morning and proceeded to write to 8 songs on your album. U kept me on 2, “Runaway” which was your platinum single, and “So Appalled” which put me on a song with you, Hov, Cyhi, Swizz, and produced by Rza. Thinking back on it, it really was all a set up. You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as. So on the 6th anniversary of MBDTF and as the President of your label G.O.O.D. music I wanna say thanx for the endless opportunities you have brought to me. P.S. I think it’s time we all head back to Hawaii @kanyewest ::whenever you ready:: #GOOD
