Pusha T is yet to find overground fame. ‘My Name Is My Name’ should change that.

Pusha T - 'My Name Is mY Name'

Album Info

  • Release Date: October 8, 2013
  • Label: GOOD Music/Def Jam
8 / 10 When Pusha T spits “I sold more dope than I sold records” on ‘Hold On’, he’s mocking the self-mythology of his rivals. But there’s an awkward truth here: despite being half of Clipse, the Virginia duo whose 2006 LP ‘Hell Hath No Fury’ elevated tales of coke-dealing to an artform, Pusha is yet to find overground fame. ‘My Name Is My Name’ should change that. Executive-produced by Kanye and packed with name producers (Pharrell, Hudson Mohawke and more), it’s a showcase for Pusha’s cold-blooded flow and crammed with memorable lines (on ‘King Push’ he’s “the black Zach De La Rocha”). Its finest moments – ‘40 Acres’ and the smoked-out ‘Nosetalgia’ – are autobiographical, and the very realest shit at that.
