On the road to his sophomore album, King Push, Pusha T gave us a glimpse of what he’s been cooking up in the studio with “Lunch Money,” the Kanye West produced single he said was actually leaked and wasn’t ready to be released.
The Virginia bread MC explained to Revolt TV that the track, which features hard hitting lines over a computerized video game influenced beat was revealed prematurely as a result of a Google Play snafu.
“It was an accident,” Push said. “In dealing with iTunes and Google Play and things like that, you have to queue it up early. So we queued up a version early, for the space, and ‘Ye decided to take it out of the queue, because he wanted to do other things that you hear in the beat now. And you know, he be gone, I be gone, things get lost in translation and it didn’t get taken out of the queue for Google Play. So that’s how people had the wrong version first. And when people had the wrong version, and I found that out, I was like it has to go, we gotta just put it out.”
If fans thought “Lunch Money” was dope, Pusha said he has a lot more in store. He also revealed that he is working in the studio with The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, in addition to having Kanye executive produce his second solo effort.
According to the former Clipse rapper, he’s gunning for another “album of the year” with this one as he plans to uphold the same level of lyricism he laid down with My Name is My Name.
