Pusha T Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Clipse “Momma I’m So Sorry” (2006)

Produced by: The Neptunes

Pusha T:Hell Hath No Fury is the best album to ever come out in the world. It’s the best album ever made in life. It’s right up there with Thriller and Purple Rain. Actually, it’s Thriller, Purple Rain, then Hell Hath No Fury. Matter of fact, we might be able to top Purple Rain. And ‘Momma I’m So Sorry’ is my favorite Clipse record. Well, it’s a toss-up between that and ‘Keys Open Doors.’

“My favorite record ever made by an artist is probably ‘My Downfall’ by B.I.G. There’s a few moments from Life After Death that were so crazy that they inspired me. The ‘Momma I’m So Sorry’ beat made me try to harness anything I could from the spirit of B.I.G., and then put my twist and my spin on it. So you gotta understand [Imitates B.I.G. voice], ‘I philosophize about glocks and keys/Niggas call me young black Socrates.’ That’s me biting B.I.G at my finest. I have to thank B.I.G for that cause I was biting and you can tell the world I was biting. Now, that’s somebody I’ll bite!”
