Exclusive in-depth interview with Pusha T. In part 2 Pusha talks to Nick Huff Barili about a range of subjects including Culture Vultures and Hip Hop becoming Emo now. Pusha breaks down the inspiration behind the third verse from his single “King Push”. “Vultures to my culture//Exploit the struggle, insult ya//They name dropping// ’bout caine copping//But never been a foot soldier”…”I feel like rap is so Emo right now…that’s the change that is going on right now. Boom. That’s fine we will take that. But..Now the Emo guys, you see them and you see other rappers who aren’t of the street world or that mentality, they now want to use the street slang and they want to use the street metaphors, the drug references cause it makes their rhymes sound good…Culture Vultures they are everywhere even in Rap”. As the interview moves along Pusha breaks down the inspiration for a track on his new album “My Name Is My Name” called S.N.I.T.C.H which features Pharrell. You will have to watch the video for the details of the story behind that. Before we let Pusha go, he shares the conversation he had with Kendrick Lamar after his Control verse. Push talks about the two of them shooting a video for Pusha’s song called Nosetalgia. The video features Push and K. Dot walking down 134th and Piru in Compton.
