Pusha T Says He & Kanye West Don't Live The Same Lifestyle

Pusha T comments on the lack of a "warrior attitude" in the music industry, shares the reason behind his "My Name Is My Name" delay.

Over the past year, G.O.O.D. Music emcee Pusha T has become known for his on-and-off feuds with fellow rappers Lil Wayne and Drake, but according to the Virginia rapster, his words have been known to get a rise out of most people.

While speaking with Complex recently, Pusha T didn’t address his feuds with other artists, but instead spoke on the power behind his words and shared the reason why he chooses to be “super-calculated” with his moves within the music industry.

“Every time I say something I always get a rise out of everybody,” said the My Name Is My Name rapper. “The truth is it’s really a powerful thing. It really makes people act out of character…I’m super-calculated in everything that I do. Especially when it comes to this music game. I look at it a mile down the road in any decisions that I make. Especially now because I feel like the music game is at a point where like it’s probably the most not credible form of entertainment. It’s the youngest art form. So, it’s like there’s certain things we’re supposed to uphold like realness and things like that. We don’t even uphold that.”

Pusha T further commented on what he feels is the absence of realness among those in the genre of Hip Hop as he touched on a lack of what he referred to as a “warrior attitude.”

“It’s one thing to not think before you speak and not give a damn, but I think a lot of people do care about what they say,” said Pusha. “They don’t even have that warrior attitude to not even give a fuck and just say what you want. Even if you make a mistake or say something that you don’t mean, you can be a man and be like ‘Oh yeah, you know what? I take that back. I ain’t mean it.’ But just to have that attitude, people don’t even have that. You know, I just basically learn that a lot of people aren’t like studiers of like the art of war. I learned a long time ago the best way to combat anything in this industry is by just keep constantly putting out good music, no pun intended.”
