Exclusive: Pusha T Talks New “Autobiographies” Doc, “King Push,” Hints at Possible “Cruel Summer,” and More

Pusha T G.O.O.D. Music Autobiographies

It’s no secret that 2016 is the year for Pusha T. Following the explosive release of his latest album Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, and being named G.O.O.D. Music’s newest President, the Virginia native has his sights set for greatness – and promises nothing less. However, before he heads down the path of musical domination, the “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets” rapper took a moment to reflect, inviting Vice to spend a day with him for their new docu-series Autobiographies. Premiering on Verizon’s new streaming platform go90, the insightful series showcases the personal stories of several artists, including A$AP Ferg, Nigel Sylvester, Jackie Cruz, Ty Dolla $ign and many more.

Sharing a personal story is no easy feat for someone who takes privacy seriously – particularly when it’s something that hits home. For Pusha, seeing himself tell the world about the untimely death of his former road manager was a bit jarring. He expressed to STASHED his feelings towards the senseless violence that caused his death and how he felt watching the documentary for the first time. “Man it got so emotional for me,” said Push. “And you know to be in a different setting and watching myself talk about it, it struck a nerve – left and right.”

In addition to opening up about a variety of issues, including his feelings about the dismantling of Clipse, Pusha talked with STASHED about his plans for 2016, particularly his plan for his long-awaited album King Push. “It’s definitely happening this year,” affirmed Pusha. He also revealed plans for another “Cruel Summer,” discussed the rollout for Kanye’s Swish, and confirmed that Big Sean is indeed releasing a new album this year.

To catch Pusha T’s episode of Autobiographies, be sure to download Verizon’s go90 app at the App Store or Google Play before it premieres on Wednesday, January 20.
