The rapper says he and West "always have real conversations"
Earlier this year, West provoked anger among fans and fellow stars alike when he posted a photo of himself on Twitter wearing a red Make America Great Again cap after tweeting his support for Donald Trump.
West produced Pusha T’s latest album ‘Daytona’ and according to the Virginia Beach rapper, West is no longer sporting the controversial cap.
“He doesn’t [wear it] anymore,” Pusha T told The Daily Show. “He stopped. He stopped, though.” Pusha T also revealed that the pair rarely talk politics when they’re in the studio together.
“Can you imagine having those conversations while he’s trying to make my album?” he said. “He basically has my life in his palm and I have to tell him that I hate something. We always have real conversations, though. Always.
“I think that’s why me and him connect so well and I think that’s why ‘Daytona’ came out so well. It’s a give and take. If I don’t like something, I say it and he tries to correct it, and so on and so forth.”
During the interview, Pusha T touched upon the album’s artwork, which originally featured a photograph of Whitney Houston’s bathroom.
“I felt like this image spoke to exactly what was going on in the album,” he explained. “It’s organised chaos. It’s luxury. it’s drugs. It’s just chaos. I’m make luxury street rap. We gonna talk about everything. We gonna talk about the good, the bad and the ugly.”
Last month, a fight broke out on stage at a Pusha T show in Toronto, with one man left with life-threatening injuries. Pusha was performing at the city’s Danforth Music Hall when his set was interrupted by what appeared to be fans storming the stage.
