(AllHipHop News) Pusha T’s debut solo album, My Name Is My Name, will hark back to the 1990’s according to the Virginia rapper. Pusha sat down with MTV to discuss the upcoming LP and revealed that his main focus for the project was to recreate the exceptional lyrical content associated with the Golden Age of Hip Hop.
“I wanna go to an era and revisit an era that was strictly about lyrics,” said Push. “So I had to go to ’95-’99, a great mixtape era, a great B.I.G./Jay era. To me it was just more so about recreating the greatness of an amazing time.”
Pusha’s appreciation for New York Hip Hop from the late 90’s is even more understandable after he shared a little known fact about him during the interview. The G.O.O.D. Music emcee and his brother, No Malice, were actually born in The Bronx, New York and later moved to Virginia as young children.
