"It's cinematic in the sense that I wanted to make a dark album. I see music in colors and try to put it in a physical perspective at times, and I saw it as like, if I had to name a movie, 'The Devil's Advocate.' You know, 'Devil's Advocate' was a very dark movie. It dealt with very dark themes, but to the naked eye, it was total beauty. You have total beauty and total greatness. You have the wizardry of Al Pacino, the beauty of Charlize Theron, at the time the go-to guy of Keanu, and at the same time it dealt with like this demonic man in [the field of] law. You would see a beautiful woman changing in front of Charlize and you'd look at her and she'd be beautiful and then there'd be a monster under her. I feel like that's what my album is," -- Pusha T, on describing the direction of his full-length album. [via Billboard]
