Pusha T announced the title of his debut solo album on G.O.O.D Music with plans for an early 2013 release during a show in New York today.
Taking a famous quote from ‘The Wire’ character Marlo Stanfield the rapper has titled his first solo LP ‘My Name Is My Name’. The title is quite appropriate seeing as that’s how Pusha T first got heads bouncing, rapping about the hustles of the drug game alongside his brother Malice as Virginia rap duo the Clipse.
As soon as the announcement was made the hip-hop community was buzzing on Twitter. Since signing to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label Pusha T has been one of the standout artists on the label, which is quite amazing when you look at the roster: Common, Q-Tip, Yasiin Bey (better known by his former alias, Mos Def) and John Legend. He also has plans to drop his ‘Wrath of Kane’ Mixtape before the end year.
If he continues to drop tracks like ‘New God Flow’, ‘Trouble on My Mind’ and ‘Alone In Vegas’ we can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for us with ‘My Name Is My Name’. In addition to that, how about another Clipse album with good old Neptunes Production? That’s definitely we’d love to see.
In the word’s of Pusha T “Who else could put the hipsters with the felons and thugs?”.
