Pusha T made it clear in an interview with Billboard that we shouldn't expect to learn too much from him about the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer. Why? Because, according to him, "I'm in the dark just as much as you guys."
The Clipse rapper went on to say that he only learned about the G.O.O.D. Music performance of "Mercy" at the BET Awards moments before taking the stage:
"I'm like, 'Yo, what are we gonna do for the BET Awards?' He goes, 'Oh, I got something.' I walk out, it's like a fucking 50-foot fucking Lamborghini!'" explained Push. "You know what he tells us? He tells us things like what color to wear. 'Hey, bring white or black.' 'Okay, what are we doing?' 'Bring white or black.'"
Pusha then revealed that he's not entirely in the dark, as he noted that Common had some particularly strong rhymes on the project, which drops Aug. 7:
"[Common]'s in there like 'This shit is hot, this shit is good, I'm getting on this!' It's so funny, because we're sitting there, dying laughing, and then it kicks in that Common is really writing his verse. Then he lays the verse. And then you realize his verse is sustained and better than yours! It's things like that that happen during those processes."
