Pusha T still appreciates Ye’s impact on his career
Virginia rap icon Pusha T recently sat for an interview with the Los Angeles Times where he shared his thoughts on Kanye West’s recent controversies that have seen him lose his billionaire status. Even though he still acknowledges Ye’s creative “freedom” that he’s instilled in him over the years, he views the Chicago artist’s recent behavior as “disappointing.”
“Creatively, Ye has meant freedom to me,” King Push declared. “A lot of times, people would try to get me to change certain things about my process, change certain things about me lyrically, change certain things about the content. He never has been like that. He always saw me for who I was and knew how to take it to the next level.”
When asked to offer his opinion about Ye’s controversial remarks, Push admitted, “It’s definitely affected me.” He continued, “It’s been disappointing. As a Black man in America, there is no room for bigotry or hate speech. So yeah. It’s been very disappointing, let’s talk straight.”
