Since its release in mid-April, rap’s resident kingpin has been watching his fourth studio album soar to the top of AOTY lists. However, King Push not only is working on a new solo album, but has “an extremely special project” on the way, sitting down with Spotify on Tuesday (Sept. 20) to speak on what’s next for him musically.
“I’m working on my new solo album. I’m working an extremely special project to me right now. It’s just all about music and staying competitive and just showing that there’s a space for what it is that I do in hip-hop — that what I do in hip-hop is the most credible space. It takes the most talent and it’s just the realest.”Pusha T to Spotify
There’s rumors swirling that this “extremely special project” could potentially be a reunion LP with Clipse-mate No Malice. However, this information is unconfirmed. It’s still too early to tell what Push is keeping up his sleeve.
Debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (May 1), selling 55,000 first-week units, It’s Almost Dry’s production is a 50-50 shared effort by longtime collaborators in Ye and Pharrell. It was Pusha T’s first No. 1 album in his 20-plus year career, but his third top 10 record on Billboard.
The 12-track album has been universally praised by critics, fans and hip-hop heads, new and old, alike — as tracks like “Scrape It Off,” “Dreamin Of The Past” and “Let The Smokers Shine The Coupes” have highlighted the Virginia Beach native’s manifested takeover.
If these forthcoming projects resemble the triumph of It’s Almost Dry, King Push’s reign in rap will become more legendary than ever before.
