Pusha T Says "Cruel Summer" Is In "Final" Stages, Talks Solo Work

Pusha T discusses the G.O.O.D. Music album's "final" stages while also sharing information on his own solo album.

Anticipation for the G.O.O.D. Music compilation album started as soon as it was announced. The G.O.O.D. collective were meant to release the album earlier this year and after several push-backs, the anticipation has grown even more. Recently, Pusha T spoke about what he knows regarding the project and shared information about his own solo effort. 

"It’s like a melting pot of music," Pusha explained to MTV after saying he might be on "six or seven songs." "And I say that to say there are records that I rhymed on that Kid Cudi had like two verses of singing and I just come in, and still somebody else may have done a verse to it. There’s all singing records; there are records with Teyana Taylor. Matter of fact, her and 2 Chainz have like a love two-way and I don’t know if that made it … It’s a total unfinished Rubik’s Cube of a mixture of colors and attitudes of an album."

He also shared that he was on his way to add any final touches the project may need.

"I’m on my way to Hawaii [where Kanye is recording] so I’m gonna get to lend an ear to it and later on today give my opinion on what I think. Maybe it may want some tweaking, or maybe I’ll love it in its entirety, but it’s in its final final final stages."

Pusha Ton also shared some information about his solo album with G.O.O.D. Music. The VA emcee said it will be a dark album "camouflaged" by bright music. 

"The album is dark, and the album is dark in theme, but I think a lot of the darkness is camouflaged by the brightness of the music. I think Kanye means the truth of the album and the perspective of the album is just so dark and reality-based; it’s the unedited version of what a man in my position or many men out here in the street think, whether it deals with family, whether it deals with relationship, whether it deals with celebratory themes, it always ends up having a real perspective on it. It’s a little scary."
