Pusha T Clears Up Joaquin Phoenix Production Credit

On Oct. 8, Pusha T will release his long-awaited debut My Name Is My Name featuring the opening track “King Push.” While Joaquin Phoenix was originally credited for producing the song, he did not actually make the beat. In an exclusive interview with Rap-Up TV, the G.O.O.D. Music MC clears up the confusion.

It was Kanye West who got the beat from the Oscar-nominated actor. “Joaquin Phoenix gave the beat to ‘Ye, so when I got the beat from ‘Ye, it was, ‘Yo, Joaquin gave me this beat,’” he says. “So me, I’m just like, ‘OK, I know Joaquin’s into music and you know the whole thing,’ so I’m like, ‘Oh, damn.’”

The credit actually goes to Sebastian Sartor, the stepson of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. “I believe it is the son of Lars Ulrich from Metallica,” says Pusha. “I hope I’m not wrong this time. It was mistaken because it came from Joaquin.”

While Phoenix did not produce “King Push,” MNIMN does feature production from heavy-hitters including Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, The-Dream, and Kanye West.

    To whom it may concern, including that terrible first comment: Who cares, MNIMN is already a classic. As he often says, he doesn’t need commercial success. Even if he doesn’t reach 100k on the first week, he’s still one of the most respected, talented & consistent rappers in the game, one of the most sought after by fellow artists, in addition to being one of the realest. I support him.

    @C94B, That’s still a FLOP so your comment is void and invalid.
