While we patiently wait for Pusha’s debut album on Def Jam, he has revealed some information about the content to The Boombox. Pusha first talks about the support from his brother No Malice who converted to Christianity last year.
“Me and him were just talking and he was like, ‘You know, like, I really support you and as long as your soul is with god I think everything else is gonna be fine. You’re gonna do all of the great things you want to do,'” the MC explains. “We talked for like two hours. He was like, I’m good now, I’m really good.”
Pusha then goes on to reveal a yet untitled song featuring Rick Ross and produced by Kanye West.
“It’s hard and emotional; it’s what people wanna hear… as a rap purist. It almost has the same qualities to me that ‘Sixteen’ with [Ross] and Andre 3000 [had]. Not that the song sounds anything like that, but just the fact that you want to hear rap. Like you just hear two guys blacking out over verses. My first lines on that record are, ‘I sold more dope than I sold records.’ It’s just a reality-based record. I think on it we both embrace the ills. We embrace the ills of the lifestyle of music, the ills of the street.”
He also revealed that he doesn’t have to many guest features on the album as of now (apart from Future on ‘Pain‘ of course) but revealed the following names who will take on production duties — Swizz Beatz, Rico Beats, The-Dream, Kanye West, Pharrell, No I.D. and Young Chop.
