Pusha T is teaming up with some heavy hitters for his fourth studio album. The “Santeria” emcee joined his manager, Steven Victor, in an Instagram Live session on Tuesday (Dec. 8) and shared some details about what’s to come.
During the conversation, Victor — who was promoting his playlist on Rap Caviar’s account — inquired about the production credits on Pusha’s forthcoming project. “They wanna know who’s on the album,” Victor said, to which the “Mercy” star replied, “To be honest with y’all, I haven’t put any features on the album yet.”
Victor clarified, “They wanna know about production. They don’t care about the features.”
Then, the “Infrared” rapper revealed that the sole producers on the album as of now are Kanye West and the Neptunes. “That’s it. That’s it,” he said adding, “… You know I bring the best. I bring the best out of everybody.”
Pusha’s last project DAYTONA was released in 2018 amid the G.O.O.D. Music rollout in which a different artist from the label dropped a seven-track project — executive produced by Yeezy — every week until all the albums were released. Ye is also behind the beats of some of the best music in Pusha’s solo career, like “Nosetalgia,” “New God Flow” and “Numbers on the Board.”
In regards to the rapper’s history with the Neptunes, it stems back to his days as one half of the Clipse and extends into his solo career as hitmakers Pharrell and Chad Hugo produced “Revolution” from his 2013 mixtape Wrath of Caine as well as a few songs from his Fear of God II: Let Us Pray project.
Though Pusha seems to have locked in his production team, it is likely that his album may be released with no features. Aside from telling Victor that he hasn’t yet tapped any artists to appear on the project, he previously announced that he may potentially keep to himself this time around.
“I’m well in on my next project,” Pusha said during an AMA (ask me anything) session in May. ”It’s looking kind of selfish right now, to be honest … I got a lot to say, man. A lot’s went on. A lot to address.”
