Pusha T can’t wait for fans to hear his upcoming album, My Name Is My Name, due next month, so they can compare the project to other rap albums, namely Drake‘s Nothing Was the Same.
Following major summer releases from Kanye West, Jay Z, J. Cole and Wale, Pusha recently told VH1, “I’m so happy that my album actually is coming out around everybody’s.”
Even though his project was delayed from a July launch date, the rapper looks on the bright side and adds, “At the time, when it got pushed back in July, I was praying it was not going to be pushed back, because I wanted it to come out in the mix of all these albums. But this is fine, too, because it can come out on the heels of [Drake’s Nothing Was the Same] and people can compare them.”
The G.O.OD Music rapper proclaims that My Name Is My Name will be named “hip-hop album of the year. For sure. No doubt in my mind.” The set is schedule for release on October 8.
