New details regarding Pusha T‘s involvement in Kanye West‘s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album have surfaced. According to Steven Victor, during the Hawaii recording sessions for the album, Pusha T grew to be incredibly frustrated with Kanye West’s creative process.
In a recent interview with Idea Generation Victor revealed that Push spent two weeks on the island with Ye but nearly bailed on the sessions. When Ye’s process proved to be a waste of Push’s time, Push left Hawaii with the intention of completely dropping out of the album. Victor explained the situation, “There’d be periods where we would be in Hawaii for like two or three weeks and no work would be getting done. So for someone like Pusha, it’s like, ‘What is this? This doesn’t make sense.’” He added, “We were supposed to go out there one time and he was like, ‘Tsk. I’m not going, man. This ain’t it.’ I was like, ‘Nah, we have to go! [Kanye's] process is his process.’ He was like, ‘I’m not going.’”
Ultimately, with a little more convincing, Push made his way back to Hawaii with Victor where he helped to scope out the situation. Victor, who had arrived before Push helped to scope out the situation and called Push to confirm that Ye was ready to work, “So I get back and I call Pusha and I’m like, ‘Yo, I just had this conversation with Kanye. Ye wants you to come out here ASAP so we can figure this out.’”
