Favorite Quotes from Pusha T
“I felt like when I got with Kanye, and we discussed me being on G.O.O.D. Music, he just really took me to a place in regards to music that I love and music that I had made previously. 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
“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
“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 over shoes, ideas, and everything – it’s like a tug of war.” – Pusha T
“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
“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
