Pusha T Discusses Upcoming Kendrick Lamar Collaboration "Nose Stalgia"

In a recent interview with HipHopDX, Pusha T discussed the forthcoming collaboration he has with Kendrick Lamar on his debut album My Name Is My Name.

Titled "Nose Stalgia," the record finds both lyricists in storytelling mode as they highlight the drug epidemic within their respective communities. "We gave two perspectives [on the song]," Pusha says. "[Kendrick Lamar] was giving more, looking from the inside of his home and how his family and his crusade through the drug epidemic affected him. I was giving you the junior high, high school start, showing you what it was and where I was at."

Pusha also details another song he has on his album called "Sorry Nigga, I'm Trying to Come Home," which is produced by Pharrell. "The acronym for that is S.N.I.T.C.H. I personally don't really want to hear anymore one-dimensional street raps. This is probably the most poignant record on my album. It's the realest record," Pusha declares.

"It just speaks from the perspective of knowing people who've turned over in the game," he continues. "No rapper talks about that. Every rapper makes you feel like...they don't know anybody [who has become a police informant] or [that] anybody in their crew hasn't turned over...Everybody else gonna make you think that, 'Yeah, we was doin' this. We was doin' that, and we got rich and there was no hiccups.' And there's been hiccups."
