2. “I caught the U.S. Open a couple of times, but, man, I would love to catch Wimbledon and watch Nadal – he is the king of all kings.” – Pusha T

We had a clear understanding of what I wanted to make, and he just seemed like he was an advocate for hardcore, uncompromising hip-hop.” – Pusha T

4. “I make a timeless music. I think I’ve made my mark as a lyricist and as an innovator and as a tastemaker.” – Pusha T

5. “I think Adidas really understands that it’s cool to be in business with the right people. It really feels like a bunch of creative minds rather than some rap guys stamping their names on a sneaker. We’re arguing overshoes, ideas, and everything – it’s like a tug of war.” – Pusha T

6. “I’ve never been – I don’t think I’m, like, a great A&R by any means. I don’t even know production lingo, in all honesty.” – Pusha T

 

7th 0f 50 Pusha T Quotes 

7. “My hip-hop fans are a little spoiled – they want a particular level of lyricism and energy that I’m known for. When they don’t get that, it takes a little time for them to open up to it. But electronic fans are as free as the music. On social media, they were so excited and loud; they’re in awe.” – Pusha T

 

8. “Oh, I’m up at 6:00 A.M. every morning because I have a lot to do. Plenty. I work out probably at, like, 8:00. I gotta eat at 6:00 so, therefore, I can workout at 8:00.” – Pusha T

9. “Some of the greatest hip-hop artists have incorporated elements from electronic shows into their setup. People are taking notice. It’s going to be a new wave.” – Pusha T

10. “When you make albums like I do, and it’s based off fanfare and based off touring – I make these albums, and I get on the road. It’s not really a radio-driven thing. I get on the road, and I see my fans, and I touch each and every last one of them.” – Pusha T

11. “Biggie is my favorite rapper, for sure. No other artist has impacted me that much.” – Pusha T

12. “I believe there’s a god above me, I’m just the god of everything else!” – Pusha T

15. “I think about nothing but business the whole time. Even when I go out to my after-parties, people are like, You’re drinking water?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah I am.” – Pusha T

16. “I’ve got my traveling, my packing, my after-show activities all down to a science. I used to not work out on tour; now I take a trainer with me. I do things to make sure that I can give the crowd my all, because that’s what I’m all about.” – Pusha T

 

17th 0f 50 Pusha T Quotes

18. “My vision for G.O.O.D. Music is just carrying on with the tradition of putting out high-quality music, high-quality art. G.O.O.D. Music is entrenched in the culture of hip-hop. It’s entrenched in the culture, period.” – Pusha T

19. “Playing a room, it’s a real dictator-type situation – you can really move the crowd the way you want to. In a festival, there’s a sea of people, and it’s harder to lock in on any one group.” – Pusha T

20. “When we were growing up, I got kicked out of Timbaland’s house every day. He was the DJ for my brother’s rap group in junior high school. So I was 7, and while Tim’s DJ’ing and my brother’s rapping, I’d be upstairs dancing.” – Pusha T

21. “As a writer, you’re always trying to say the best thing. You’re always thinking about what’s the best thing to say, and what’s the hardest way to say it, and what’s the best line? Sometimes the best line is the simplest line. Sometimes the best line is the line that evokes more feeling than actual wordsmithing.” – Pusha T

22. “G.O.O.D. Music is on top because G.O.O.D. Music is the culture. When you think of, you know, just every aspect from music, influence, fashion, art level. If it’s not G.O.O.D Music, then it’s somebody who was influenced heavily by G.O.O.D. Music.” – Pusha T

23. “I feel like my lyrics are just dark and scathing. I feel like the lyrics on ‘Darkest Before Dawn’ are uncompromised hip-hop and really speaking to my core fan base. Basically what’s been known in my discography the entire time.” – Pusha T

24. “I just look at capitalizing on everything that I feel like G.O.O.D. Music brings to the music industry, our following, and the culture. First of all, we have incredible artists. It’s definitely about getting those albums out in a very manicured fashion.” – Pusha T

25. “I tell people that the Clipse were the first Internet rap darlings.” – Pusha T

26. “I’ve been going to Europe for some time on the festival circuit, and once you get in that element and see others reacting to it, it’s easier to understand. You get trapped in the wave. The beats are driving and super-aggressive – like, so hard. I was curious.” – Pusha T

 

27th 0f 50 Pusha T Quotes 

27. “More than anything, Play Cloths has taken risks in regards to the pieces of clothing that we’re even creating. We started out as straight T-shirts. It was just T-shirts and a couple cool things. Now, it’s leisure pants, it’s all types of clothing. We’re evolving even with fashion trends on a super high level.” – Pusha T

 

28. “My style is forever changing.” – Pusha T

29. “Pharrell has definitely influenced my style in regards to streetwear. Simply because we’re from that era that Nigo and A Bathing Ape started. That’s where it all started at for us.” – Pusha T

30. “Virginia Beach is just such a melting pot for so many different things, and they just have so many influences. I would always say that the area definitely influences Play Cloths. The area itself just has so many influences, whether it be fashion, music, everything.” – Pusha T

31. “Allen Iverson is, like, my all-time hero.” – Pusha T

32. “Even with social media and where we are…everything is about the look.” – Pusha T

33. “I feel like I’m the last rap superhero. I really do. I feel like everybody else, they seem to be a bit victimized, and I don’t feel like that’s me.” – Pusha T

34. “I had a really successful 2013, ’14, ’15. Touring, just doing my thing. Super – I mean, can’t complain about nothing. And my road manager got killed. And it ruined everything. Now, I tell people – I don’t know if this is a word. But I tell people that that re-sensitized me.” – Pusha T

35. “I see people doing things in their Blackberrys, and I need paper. Lines. Alphabets. I need to see it. It’s so elementary, man.” – Pusha T

36. “I’ve always had some level of having to be independent outside of music because the music wasn’t a smooth ride. We lost a lot in the mix: Everybody that I came in the music game with – friends I brought in with me – are all doing 10-34 years in jail. That’s why if you want to get the real, you gotta get it from me.” – Pusha T

37. “Me tweeting sometimes, it’s like, I don’t even remember what I say. It’s just coming off how it’s coming off.” – Pusha T

 

38. “My music is airy; it’s spacious. It requires you to be able to rap and articulate your message over it. That’s what the beat demands of you. Not a lot of people try to rap over my beats because it’s a bit of a task.” – Pusha T

39. “People don’t understand how long it really takes to find beats. Sometimes they’re not all the way there, but it’s elements in them I love. Then I get to take them to get chopped up. Ye got to cook over a few of them.” – Pusha T

40. “The Re-Up Gang mixtapes are going down in history, man. I still listen to them in my car, and the ‘Hell Hath No Fury’ album. I tell people all the time that I’ll never make another album like that one again. Never!” – Pusha T

41. “A good villain exudes charisma and power. He has principles, though; that just gives him a level of dimension. It makes him seem to be a bit unpredictable, because he’s usually deemed as some type of evil, ruthless person, and then he shows you his principles, and you don’t know what to think of it.” – Pusha T

42. “Darkest Before Dawn,’ the short film, is basically the film of a man who faces the darkness when his back is against the wall and just about how miracles come in all forms, and even in your darkest times, it comes.” – Pusha T

43. “I don’t even know how to think about running out of things to talk about. Certain things are inescapable to me. I’m connected by the hip with so many things in the streets.” – Pusha T

45. “I never understood why movies don’t have to be as responsible, or the responsibility stops with Rated R. I feel like music, you gotta – you put the sticker on it, you make the clean version, then you’re explaining yourself, and then you have to do charities to offset what you just said. No one else has to do this!” – Pusha T

50 Iconic Frank Miller Quotes

1. “The world doesn’t make sense until you force it to.” – Frank Miller

3. “When you think of what Americans accomplished, building these amazing cities and all the good it’s done in the world, it’s kind of disheartening to hear so much hatred of America, not just from abroad, but internally.” – Frank Miller

4. “Comic-book pages are vertical, and movie screens are relentlessly horizontal. But it’s all the same form. We use different tools, but we get the job done. I’m completely in love with CGI. It’s great for conveying a cartoonist’s sense of reality.” – Frank Miller

6. “I don’t own an ounce of the work I’ve ever done on ‘Batman,’ and I still work on ‘Batman.’ I love the character, I think it’s a lot of fun, and it’s kind of fun to be in that ballpark every once in a while, where you’re seeing a different crowd.” – Frank Miller

12. “Hollywood is a town; it’s not a medium. And cinema is a medium you can practice anywhere.” – Frank Miller

13. “A screenwriter is much like being a fire hydrant with a bunch of dogs lined up around it.” – Frank Miller

20th of 50 Frank Miller Quotes

20. “It’s one thing to be sitting at a drawing board, alone in your home and coming up with a fantasy character, and drawing her whichever way you feel like drawing, then dealing with a real performer. All of a sudden, things change. It’s amazing, in working with actors, how much I learn from them and how many new lines will come to mind because of their personality or their strengths.” – Frank Miller

 

21. “Nancy’s got a guardian angel. Seven feet plus of muscle and mayhem that goes by the name of Marv.” – Frank Miller

22. “I find that if somebody is writing and drawing a comic book, planning it to be a movie and a game at the same time tends to lead to a pretty lame job.” – Frank Miller

23. “I don’t do a comic book thinking there is a movie. I just want it to be as good a comic book as it can be.” – Frank Miller

24. “People are attempting to bring a superficial reality to superheroes which is rather stupid. They work best as the flamboyant fantasies they are. I mean, these are characters that are broad and big. I don’t need to see sweat patches under Superman’s arms. I want to see him fly.” – Frank Miller

25. “In a way, Sin City’s designed to be paced somewhere between an American comic book and Japanese manga. Working in black and white, I realized that the eye is less patient, and you have to make your point, and sometimes repeat it. Slowing things down is harder in black and white because there isn’t as much for the eye to enjoy.” – Frank Miller

26. “I check the list. Rubber tubing, gas, saw, gloves, cuffs, razor wire, hatchet, Gladys, and my mitts.” – Frank Miller

27. “This should be agony. I should be a mass of aching muscle – broken, spent, unable to move. And, were I an older man, I surely would … … but I’m a man of thirty – of twenty again. The rain on my chest is a baptism – I’m born again .” – Frank Miller

28. “I always knew it would come down to you and the big blue schoolboy. Planet’s too big for the BOTH of you. When it all comes down, I want a piece of him. A small piece, will do? For OLD TIMES, sake, you know…it still hurts when it’s cold.” – Frank Miller

29. “It is more raw and unfettered and I’m more likely going into something you could call extreme cartooning. There’s a lot of that in the course of ‘Holy Terror.’ There are interludes where there are pictures – cartoon pictures – of modern figures and they are all wordless. It’s up to readers to put the words in.” – Frank Miller

 

30th of 50 Frank Miller Quotes

34. “When I’m writing a comic book, I’m thinking about a character that I’m going to be drawing on the page. I’ve never drawn a character to look like who I want to cast in a movie because I don’t think that way. I’m a real monomaniac. I do one thing at a time.” – Frank Miller

35. “I’m not going to complain about the fact that people are paying attention to my work. I suppose that wouldn’t be fair.” – Frank Miller

36. “We live in the shadow of crime with the unspoken understanding that we are victims.. of fear, of violence, of social impotence. A man has risen to show us that the power is, and always has been, in our hands. We are under siege. He’s showing us that we can resist.” – Frank Miller

37. “I moved to New York and was told, “Go back home. We don’t need you. Go pump gas. You’re from Vermont. We’ve got no use for you. You’re not drawing guys in tights.” So, I learned how to draw guys in tights, and I put them in as many crime situations as I could.” – Frank Miller

40th of 50 Frank Miller Quotes

40. “But I’m not trying to convince anybody how to vote or how to live. Nobody’s ever successfully accused me of being realistic.” – Frank Miller

 

41. “Comic book’ has come to mean a specific genre, not a story form, in people’s minds. So someone will call ‘Die Hard’ a ‘comic-book movie,’ when it has nothing to do with comic books. I’d rather have comics be the vehicle by which stories are told.” – Frank Miller

42. “It’s not movies and it’s not “fine art.” The beauty of a comic is that it’s clear, direct communication. My work is getting simpler and more cartoony because I’m much more interested in communication now than in any illustrative value.” – Frank Miller

43. “My Sin City heroes are knights in dirty, blood-caked armor. They bring justice to a world that gives them no medals, no praise, no reward. That world, that city, often kills them for their brave service.” – Frank Miller

44. “I realized that I was about to turn 30, and Batman was permanently 29. And I was going to be damned if I was older than Batman.” – Frank Miller

45. “I think most things I read on the Internet and in newspapers are propaganda. Everyone from the New York Times to Rupert Murdoch has a point of view and is putting forth their own propaganda. They’re stuck with the facts as they are, but the way they interpret and frame them is wildly different.” – Frank Miller

46. “I’m a spoilt brat. I thought I was just going to walk in and make movies. But I’d been my own boss for so long that all of a sudden to be facing a roomful of people who were niggling over every little scene… I just thought I’d go back and draw my comics and have a happy life.” – Frank Miller

47. “Mighty cultures never – are almost never conquered. They crumble from within. And frankly, I think that a lot of Americans are acting like spoiled brats because everything isn’t working out perfectly every time.” – Frank Miller

48. “The day you write to please everyone you no longer are in journalism. You are in show business.” – Frank Miller

49. “Think of me as the weathered sheriff coming back into Dodge ’cause the youngsters are shooting up the church and scaring the horses and not doing right by the women.” – Frank Miller
