Pusha T and Pharrell

Pusha T pulled double duty on Thursday, appearing on two late-night shows. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for a performance. With help from Pharrell and some violinists, he killed the stage with “S.N.I.T.C.H.” off his debut My Name Is My Name.

Over on E!, King Push grabbed a seat on “Chelsea Lately,” where he showed off his fronts (“Grillz are the poverty versions of fronts”) and spoke about playing shows with Kanye West.

“It’s fun. He talks a lot. He rants and raves,” he said of his mentor.

Chelsea responded, “It’s like a girl. Do you like hanging out with girls who don’t shut the fuck up?”

“No,” laughed Pusha, adding, “You know I’m signed to his label, right?”

Catch his late-night takeover below.

Pusha T

G.O.O.D. Music joins forces with MMG in the powerful video for “Hold On.” Pusha T and Rick Ross provide hope for the streets in the motivational clip, which was shot by DRE Films in Hollywood, Florida. The rappers speak directly to young men in their community while reflecting on their drug dealing past.

“The concept of ‘Hold On’ is me and Ross performing in front of some neighborhood guys, lecturing and basically telling the people of the neighborhood—our peers, essentially—that we’re here for them and we’re doing this for them,” King Push told MTV News.

The Kanye West and Hudson Mohawke production appears on Pusha’s debut My Name Is My Name.

Hear them share street stories in the moving visuals.

Pusha T

Pusha T keeps dropping dope visuals. After visiting Compton with Kendrick Lamar in “Nosetalgia” and hitting the beach with Chris Brown in “Sweet Serenade,” the Virginia MC brings the “Pain” in his latest video featuring Future.

The artsy black-and-white clip carries on the minimalistic theme found in his album packaging and visuals, with powerful imagery of police brutality, civil rights demonstrations, and Trayvon Martin’s fateful trip to a convenience store.

His critically-acclaimed debut My Name Is My Name is expected to sell 70-75,000 copies in its first week.

All hail King Push.

Rap-Up TV: Pusha T Explains Why He Has the Album of the Year

Pusha T has declared My Name Is My Name the best rap album of the year, and hip-hop fans will get to decide for themselves when his solo debut arrives in stores and online today. During his interview with Rap-Up TV, the G.O.O.D. Music MC backed up his lofty claim.

“Lyrically, My Name Is My Name is untouchable,” said a confident Pusha. “Production-wise, it is definitely the best produced album of the year by far. Ultimately, it’s the only album to me that really restores the feeling of hip-hop. I think everything else is easy listening. I feel like mine really makes you put an ‘S’ on your chest and calls for a course of action. It’s music you can front to, like LL [Cool J] would have said back then.”

In addition to “Sweet Serenade” featuring Chris Brown and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Nosetalgia,” the album features Rick Ross, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Kelly Rowland, and The-Dream.

“It’s car music,” explained Pusha. “It’s roll down all the windows in your car and ride past the club three times before you get out so everybody knows what you listening to ’cause that music describes you and it makes you feel like something. I feel like that’s a win for me.”

Does King Push have the album of the year? Sound off below.
