‘Is that a good thing to say or a bad thing to say?’

Pusha ponders after Yeezy’s initial reaction to his

upcoming solo album.


Pusha T has one hell of an album on his hands, but don’t take our word for it, just ask

Kanye West. During a trip to London, Yeezy took a listen to the Virginia MC’s upcoming

solo album and had a most interesting critique for Pusha.

“When it’s over, he says, ‘Yo, you know that if you die and hear your music, you know you

ended up in hell, right?’ ” Push told MTV News. “I don’t know how to take that. Is that a

good thing to say or a bad thing to say?”


Ultimately, Pusha knew that his G.O.O.D. Music running mate meant it as a compliment,

for he had grabbed album inspiration from a devilish horror flick. The Clipse spitter told

us himself that while he was putting together his yet-untitled solo effort, he was heavily

influenced by Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino’s 1997 film “The Devil’s Advocate.”

” ‘Devil’s Advocate’ is a very dark movie, but at the same time, visually, it’s beautiful,” he

told us for our Hip-Hop Music Preview. “The album is based off of that because I speak

about the harsh realities of street life but there’s a lot of glitz and glamour that comes along

with that. If you just look at it at face value, you might think, ‘It sounds a bit like he’s

glorifying [street life],’ but when you get tuned into the record, you realize that you get both

sides of it.”

‘Ye surely was impressed. “He was like, ‘Damn you painted some hell of a picture in this joint,

‘ ” Pusha recalled. “I was like, ‘Well I guess the streets will be happy.’ ”
