GOOD Music President Pusha T is setting the bar high for his long-awaited “King Push” project, promising that it will be the best album in 2018.
While speaking with Billboard at ComplexCon over the weekend, Push talked about the album, which has already been through the loop of multiple versions so that he can have it at the level he wants.
“I’m actually finishing it up. I’m probably working on my last song,” he explained. “I’m probably waiting on my last couple of features. It’s going to be album of the year in 2018. Heavy raps, production by Kanye West from top to bottom. I’ve been in this for a long time, and one thing about me is it just has to be right.”
He further explained that Kanye’s contribution isn’t just as a producer.
“He A&R’s my album all the time. He will pick all of my beats. I’ll rap to all of the beats, song’s done. Then, he will listen to it and say, ‘Hey, I can do all of these beats better. It is Kanye West, and he’s probably the greatest producer of all time. So if he’s willing to take all of that time, then I can take my time. I think that’s my biggest accomplishment of being in the game this long is having the luxury to take your time.”
Push gave fans a juicy taste of new music including shoes last month with his “Bodega Babies” link up with adidas.
This will be something we have all been waiting for. Since his last full-length studio album was King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, which came out at the end of 2015.
