Pusha T Confirms "My Name Is My Name" Single Features Kanye West, Reacts To Lil Wayne Seizures
Pusha T says that Kanye West is finishing his verse on what will most likely be the 2013 album's first single. He also appears unaware of Lil Wayne's health issues of late when asked.
Virginia Beach, Virginia emcee Pusha T appeared on Q Deezy's show on the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based HOT 107.9 radio station last week. The G.O.O.D Music soloist and co-founder of The Clipse and Re-Up confirmed that his solo debut will be arriving in summer. Pusha updated, "Right now, at the end of the day, we're at the finish line. I think we just locked in the single. I'm just waitin' for 'Ye to finish his verse." He elaborated that the song is called "I Am," which reportedly plays into the The Wire reference of the album title, My Name Is My Name. "The album is incredible," said the vet while appearing in the Philly radio studio.
Pusha added that production on the album will be handled by The-Dream, Swizz Beatz, Don Canon, Nottz, Rico Beats, Pharrell, in addition to Kanye West. He confirmed two features in Rick Ross and Future, while claiming that several more would remain a secret at this time.
During the interview, Pusha T appeared to downplay the seizures suffered by Lil Wayne in March that made international headlines. Apparently unaware of what had transpired, "Aw man, what was that about?," asked Pusha when QDeezy inquired if whether or not he sent Wayne a get-well card. "Did they do like a candle light vigil or anything?" He also asked. QDeezy said, "It wasn't like that." Pusha with a laugh, waived off the line of questioning with, "So it wasn't important."
In the 11-minute interview, Pusha also reflected on MTV's Hottest MC's List, his own favorite rappers, and more.
