Pusha T. & Kanye West Begin Work On Album


Rapper Pusha T. has recorded for a variety of labels throughout his career, which started with Elektra Records in 1997 with the release of Clipse’s first album Exclusive Audio Footage and the underground hit, “The Funeral.” After years of label turmoil, Pusha T. said he finally feels at home with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. “The dope part about G.O.O.D. Music is that everybody has a lane. Like ever-y-body has a lane,” Pusha T. told AllHipHop.com.

Throughout the years, Pusha, along with his brother Malice, dropped albums for the Arista distributed label, Star Trak, which was helmed by their longtime friend, Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes. In 2003, the group was moved to Jive as part of a merger, while Star Trak went over to Interscope. The Clipse suffered at Jive, just as sales across the music industry began to lag. To complicate matters, Clipse’s longtime, respected business manager Anthony “Geezy” Gonzales was sentenced to 32 years for heading $20 million dollar cocaine distribution ring, that stretched throughout Virginia and several other southern states.

Pusha T.’s new union with Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music has him excited and ready to make a full fledged return to the Hip-Hop scene. Pusha recently dropped his new mixtape Fear Of God, which is a glimpse of what fans can expect from Pusha’s highly anticipated G.O.O.D. Music debut. In addition to Kanye West and Pusha T., the G.O.O.D. Music roster features Common, Mos Def, Big Sean, CyHI Da Prince, Kid Cudi, John Legend, Mr. Hudson and others. “When we attack a project, you know, there’s just a general idea that happens, and everybody just gives their own perspective,” Pusha T told AllHipHop.com.

As for his solo effort, the project has no title, or release date, although he and Kanye West have starting working on the album. “Me and Kanye have been in [the studio] and we’ve done a good five or six records, and we’ve left them alone,” Pusha T. told AllHipHop.com. “Then we’re gonna revisit it. We’re about to go to Chile, actually this week sometime, and we’ll probably do a show and just revisit some of the records.”

Natasha Ramos – Feelin’ Myself (2011) Mixtape, Dope Boy feat. Pharrell


Natasha Ramos just released her debut Mixtape called ‘Feelin’ Myself (2011)’ which is freaking good ! Among the producers that are contributed to the mixtape are Hit-Boy, Bryan Michael Cox & Adonis, Chris & Drop, The Platinum Bros among others.

Pusha T.’s ‘Raid’ Is A Former 50 Cent Tune From 2007


Pusha T. has been Interviewed by The Breakfast Club where he revealed that The Neptunes track ‘Raid’ has already been finished before he got it for his mixtape, so it is safe to say that ‘Raid’ is a leftover off 50 Cent’s third studio album ‘Curtis’ from 2007 because that was the time The Neptunes have had studio sessions with Fifty. 50 Cent told VIBE that he has unreleased material that he recorded with Kanye West, Will.I.Am, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz and Polow Da Don that never saw the light of day. “I’ve gone in the studio with Kanye West, Will.I.Am, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz and Polow Da Don,” says 50 of some of the tracks he has worked on.

“I wanted to see if they could provide a new creative direction that would send me somewhere I would never go. We made some good music, but at the time the songs were not what I felt like I should present.” When asked why he was hesitant in the past to drop such left-field material, 50 explained, “I don’t think people were ready for that. I think my audience wanted to just hear a good record and have a good time.

They didn’t want to hear anything that was so complex that they had to think about what I was actually saying to them. I got records in the house that the fans would bug out on.” Pusha has also been Interviewed by DJ Whoo Kid where he talked about the difference working between Kanye West & Pharrell (04:10) And they also discussed The Neptunes track ‘Come N’ Get It feat. Clipse’ off Travis Barker’s Mixtape ‘Let The Drummer Get Wicked (2011)’ at (07:30), thanks to flipbundlez.

Pusha T. Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs


Complex.com have spent the last few weeks tirelessly talking to Push, trying to get his thoughts on everything from rolling with G.O.O.D. Music, to what they thought about Consequence accusing him of biting lyrics, and squashing his beef with Lil’ Wayne. But when it comes to Pusha (and by extension, Clipse) the most important thing has always been the music. An intricate lyricist with a vicious delivery, Pusha’s verses are something special. That’s why Complex.com just had to get him to break down all of his classic records. They even managed to get the true story behind his verse on We Got It For Cheap Vol. 2’s “Hate It Or Love It,” how most of the beats on Hell Hath No Fury were meant for Jay-Z, and how HHNF is better than Purple Rain.

Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘Still Here’ Is A Former Jamie Foxx Tune


I remember reading this article on MTV.com back in 2005 when Jamie Foxx was working on his second studio album Unpredictable (2005) and where he told MTV that he worked with The Neptunes on the track ‘I’m Still Here’ which at the end didn’t make the final cut. Well, that tune went two years later on Nicole Scherzinger’s debut album Her Name Is Nicole (2007) which also didn’t make the final cut, nonetheless I’m glad we’ve finally got to hear it. Thanks to darrenlaking & mkc007. Foxx also sang the praises of the Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams, who produced a track called “I’m Still Here.” “Pharrell gave me a hot nugget, like that one [song] on the album that you’re always gonna hit repeat and go back to,” the actor said.”
