As the release of his debut album My Name Is My Name draws closer, people have been talking about Pusha T enlisted the services of the ever charismatic actor/MC Joaquin Phoenix to produce his highly anticipated intro song "King Push." Well at least that's what he told Vibe back in August.

However Joaquin has come forward to XXL Magazine and released a statement that the beat is not his.

“While it was widely reported that Pusha T used my beat and that I produced his song, I can’t take any credit,” he said. ”A friend’s son played me his music, and all I did was make an introduction to Kanye’s camp.”

Well at least we all know that Joaquin isn't shy about giving credit where it is due. My Name Is My Name drops Oct. 8.
