Pusha T Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Clipse f/ Bilal & Pharrell “Nightmares” (2006)

Produced by: The Neptunes

Pusha T: “Amazing record. Should’ve been the first single off the record, but what was swaying my decision on that was the fact that we had been on hiatus so long. Everything we were doing was mixtape driven and any shows we were really getting was real fan shit going on. And I didn’t want to take the energy of the shows down with a record like ‘Nightmares.’ As great of a record as that is, I couldn’t fathom performing that record. Which was really stupid because you had guys like Game coming out doing ‘Dreams.’ I think that was his single, but I was just in this thinking like, ‘Damn man. How is this gonna carry us?’"
