Pusha T: "I'm Not Really Listening To Much Rap"

Pusha T:

Pusha T says, "Right now on the daily, I listen to Jhene Aiko. I like her a lot. I like her music."

Due to his status as a prominent rapper, some might think Pusha T listens to a lot of Rap music, but the Clipse emcee says that's not the case, at least at the moment. 

"I'm not really listening to much rap," he says in an interview with SKEE TV. "Right now on the daily, I listen to Jhene Aiko. I like her a lot. I like her music. I was sort of last on it, too. I saw her video with Childish Gambino and it was just a good song. It was one of those things where I had been seen that video and it just clicked. I was like, 'Man, I want that record.' I went, downloaded the EP, bought it and I've been listening to it a lot." 

In November 2013, Aiko spoke about filming the music video for "Bed Peace" with Childish Gambino

"We were high," Aiko said. "There’s a part in the video where we pass the vape. It’s called a Pax and it’s a very discrete vaporizer. You can’t even see the vapes. It was really funny because I had drinks out for all the extras, smoking. We were just having a lot of fun. He gets like that when he’s high. [Laughs]. We were both being very awkward. After we hit that couple of times, we were like, 'We’re in bed together all day? Wait a minute.'" 

The music video is below.

    To be honest he is right you really have to look to find good rap music nowadays there is a lot of shit out there. It's definitely not as good as it use to be, No question about it.

    This Aiko bitch overrated as fuck. She has talent but what is she bringing to the table that hasn't already been done? It's music to get my girl pussy wet, plain and simple.

    for all of the people trash talking today's hip-hop, above-ground hip-hop is in a better place than it's been in for about 12 years. it reached its low point somewhere around 2008 at the height of the lil wayne era (he wasn't bad in his prime, but he inspired a whole generation of less talented followers who ruined the entire hip-hop scene.) i know i'm not anywhere near the first one to say this, but things have just gotten better and better since TDE came on the scene. Excluding a couple Kanye albums, Section.80 brought me out of a 10 year drought of playing stuff from the 80's and 90's over and over and not really paying attention to new music, and again excluding a couple kanye albums it was the first new release i bought in the same amount of time. hip hop's in a healthier place than it's been in a long time. sorry, i got a little off topic.

      He's a hater and haters don't prosper in the rap game. He kept dissing other artists in interviews, but didn't want to respond when another rapper said " f u and everyone in your family". Similar to Tupac saying " f u and yo mama" on Hit Em Up. That rapper is still going to every event, strip club and etc with no problems.

    I don't blame him. Outside of songs on this site, I don't listen to hiphop either. I hate this new era of rappers, this is probably the worst period in hiphop history. This hipster, skateboard, 'high fasion'/wannabe Kanye shit needs to die out fast. None of these rappers are unique and original, they're all dumbed down versions of older, superior, rappers. Only difference is they try to be "artsy" with their 50 dollar hats and corny leather outfits. I'm really sick of this shit. People say I'm negative, but it's not that I'm negative, you've just lowered you standards and you accept any old bullshit these wack rappers release. I'm not impressed
    • Yup
      Amen!

    I still listen to rap and not bs that's forced upon the masses. Jhene Aiko is a bad ass broad too. Love her voice and music.
