G.O.O.D. Music member Pusha T is prepping the release of his debut album My Name Is My Name for later this year. This weekend at the Coachella Music Festival the emcee spoke with Fuse about the project and revealed that he sees it as a combination of Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death, Ma$e’s Harlem World, and RZA’s production of Only Built For Cuban Linx.
“Those are like the perfect moods in description of diversity of what I want to hear in rap,” said Pusha. “The raw RZA edge… the lyricism of a Biggie… the arrogance of a Ma$e in Harlem World.”
