About Pusha T
It’s stunning and a bit unbelievable that the coldest former Clipse took this long to make a solo album — Pusha’s mixtapes and guest verses had abounded since his acclaimed group dropped Til the Casket Drops in 2009, and he’d become so stalwart and reliable a rapper that you half-expected him to just show up on G.O.O.D. Music collabo tracks for the rest of his life and call it a day. But My Name Is My Name rose up from the cut and displayed the white-hot fire of yore, the reason Clipse fans practically bashed in Jive’s front door with a log, Gaston-style, when the label notoriously withheld 2006′s Hell Hath No Fury. Never mind that the production-and-features roster is a best-of-the-decade celebration (Kanye, Future, 2 Chainz, HudMo, Kendrick, and Jeezy). Push is in fighting form, incorporating a mature point of view on his past while rapping with the confidence of a man who knows the game is his to lose. Pusha T, putting the “eughk” back in conscious rap. Via HipHop Canada on January 29, 2014.
