The Virginia native reigns true on his first major print cover.
Pusha T graces the cover of The Source Magazine in what marks his first major placement on a print cover as a solo artist. In the ever-changing landscape of Hip-Hop, the Virginia native has lived through personal and professional tragedies en route to releasing multiple classic albums. “The Source is where we get a bird’s eye view of the evolution of hip-hop. A cover to commemorate My Name Is My Name, is dope. Pun intended” says Pusha T. Pusha talks about working under the watchful, perfectionist eye of Kanye West, and what life as a former drug-dealer from Virginia whose outlasted both his friends and his enemies.
On Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse:
“I’m glad Kendrick said what he said. That’s supposed to be the attitude of every rapper, so that verse didn’t really mean that much to me. It’s about raising the bar.”
On a potential new Clipse album:
“I can talk openly about this right now. Kanye’s down to do it. Pharrell’s down to do it. Kanye said that if Pharrell wants to do the whole thing, it’s cool, he just wants it to come out.”
On the flurry of releases in 2013:
“Nothing has really inspired me. Nothing’s really moved me. Magna Carta…but other than that, I can’t think of anything.”
