Two new Pusha-T interviews in one day?
After thoroughly enjoying the dropped gems found in King Push's lively chat with Beats 1's Julie Adenuga, I spotted a Guardian interview filled with even more. This time, the G.O.O.D. boss talked Scorpion, the KKK-esque nature of preposterously ugly MAGA hats, and more.
"He said what he said, I said what I said, now it's done," Pusha said of the feud that ultimately spawned "The Story of Adidon" bombshell. "It stayed how it was supposed to stay, just words. It was definitely good for hip-hop. What has been more energetic than this?"
In fact, Pusha plans to give Drake's new album a spin so he can see how it measures up to his own. "Hell yeah! I gotta have something to compare DAYTONA to, don't I?" he said. Hopefully, Pusha's Scorpion listen-through will inspire him to throw a freestyle over "Summer Games."
As for those MAGA hats, i.e. the same one Kanye West slapped on earlier this year, he minced no words on what it represents. "The Make America Great Again hat is this generation's Ku Klux hood," Pusha accurately assessed. "When was America so great anyways? Name that time period?"
Elsewhere, Pusha again gives his side of West's slavery comments controversy and its effect on Ye's critical mass. "People are a bit scared to embrace Ye now," he said. "Fine, whatever bro. That comes along with saying the controversial shit." Read the full interview here.
And as a general reminder, DAYTONA will have its time on the road starting later this month.
