Pusha T discusses his upcoming mixtape "Wrath of Caine" and working with Rick Ross.
Even though fans will have to wait a while longer before he drops his Kanye West-approved solo debut My Name Is My Name, Pusha T has been steadily working on a new mixtape Wrath of Caine. Now, in a recent interview with MissInfo.TV, Pusha Ton gives fans a glimpse into his anticipated project.
According to the Virginia rapper, Wrath of Caine is a collection of lyrically-driven street anthems, comparable to the music he recorded with his brother and Clipse cohort No Malice. He explained that when approaching the tape, it was most important for him to go with his gut and make the music that he would like to hear.
"Wrath of Caine is basically just me catering to my core. It's all about just street Hip Hop, street music" he described. "It's just something that I like to do. It's something that I feel like has no boundaries, no parameters. I can do what I really, really want to do…[my approach to the mixtape is] not about more of a creative [decision], I just think it's about more of what I want to hear for myself and what my fans want to hear. They want to hear lyrics, they want to hear street [music]…it's just the whole street life perspective."
Pusha went on to discuss his recent single off the tape "Millions," which also features Rick Ross. The G.O.O.D. Music emcee said that the song is an ode to the street life, and has an energy to it that's long been missing from modern Hip Hop.
"'Millions,' it's basically an ode to dope boys and stash spots; it's just an ode to that energy," he said. "I'm trying to make music and recreate that energy that I feel was missing in Hip Hop, [the energy] like you roll down your windows, you hop in your car and you front until you pull up to the club. Right now, that energy is sort of missing to me, and I feel like 'Millions' is a prime example of what that is."
