Last night was one of those, “how did you miss that” kind of nights. You know, one of those nights where people cannot stop telling you about and asking “wow, did you miss that” kind of nights? That’s exactly what Pusha T’s listening session for My Name Is My Name was. I missed it.
Luckily, our homeboy Ernest Estime was in the building to take in the festivities as Kanye West introduced the solo album from Push A Ton. Fabolous, KAWS, Mack Wilds, and more were all in attendance to listen to the latest effort from the G.O.O.D. Music camp.
Even wilder was the people who were left out of the event after the space had “reached capacity” including 2 Chainz and inexplicably Pharrell Williams. By now, you may have seen Kanye’s epic rant, but you haven’t seen it through the STASHED lens.
“This the heart of the muthaf**king city, act y’all ain’t have that muthaf**king Clipse album and shit. Act like y’all ain’t base y’all whole shit, whole lifestyle off this ni**a Pusha T,” said Kanye. “Everything is Pusha T. Pyrex Vision, that’s Pusha T. Fear of God, that’s Pusha T. This ni**a the heart of the muthaf**king culture for you culture vultures. This the only ni**a spitting that wild muthaf**king hip-hop shit right now, that’s why I stand next to this ni**a. I don’t give a f**k about none of these corporations, none of these f**king sellouts, this muthaf**king Pusha T.”
Ye continued, “this is the f**k we make. We make good music, we make good music. We don’t give a f**k about how much god damn money you make, we make good music. I’m a (?!?!) off that Goose right now, I might get loose right now. We don’t give a f**k…..we don’t give a f**k. Ni**a this is that culture. This is that culture….for everybody stealing the culture, for all ni**as trying to do their camo prints at MAGIC this is for fu**king Pusha T. All these ni**as trying to extend their muthaf**king t-shirts, trying to throw numbers on the back of their shit….this muthaf**king Pusha T. “I have a t-shirt line, cause I got numbers at the back of my shit,” F**k you. This DONDA, this Matt Williams, this Virgil Abloh, this Ferris Bueller, this is muthaf**king Pusha T. I’m done.” via MissInfo.
Oh, and they played an album …in case you forgot about that. Check out the exclusive photos and videos from the event down below as well as snippets of collaborations with Jeezy and Kendrick Lamar after the jump.
