Pusha T presented his album My Name Is My Name at a listening party in New York last night. Tastemakers, press, and celebrities including Fabolous, Estelle, and Tristan Wilds gathered at Industria Superstudio to hear the Clipse rapper’s long-awaited debut.
His G.O.O.D. Music boss Kanye West played host, while DONDA brought the evening to life. At one point, Yeezus got on the mic and delivered an epic rant in support of his protégé.
“This the heart of the muthaf**king city, act y’all ain’t have that muthaf**king Clipse album and shit,” said a tipsy Yeezy (via Miss Info). “Act like y’all ain’t base y’all whole shit, whole lifestyle off this ni**a Pusha T. Everything is Pusha T. Pyrex Vision, that’s Pusha T. Fear of God, that’s Pusha T. This ni**a the heart of the muthaf**king culture for you culture vultures. This the only ni**a spitting that wild muthaf**king hip-hop shit right now, that’s why I stand next to this ni**a. I don’t give a f**k about none of these corporations, none of these f**king sellouts, this muthaf**king Pusha T.”
My Name Is My Name drops Oct. 8 featuring Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Future, and Chris Brown, who appears on the Swizz Beatz-produced single “Sweet Serenade.”
