Pusha T: Yeah Listened To Lil Wayne New Mixtape. It’s Trash.
In the interview, Pusha says he has heard Dedication 5 and had a one word review of the mixtape, “Trash.” The G.O.O.D. Music “hot head” could not put his finger on the reason as to why Wayne “lost it”:
I don’t know man. In being fair too, Carter II Wayne is mean. In being fair, I wouldn’t want to blame it on something like drugs or lack there of drugs. I don’t know because I don’t want to feel like people just fall from grace like that but…..trash.
Pusha also shed insight on the recording process of Yeezus and why the album abandoned traditional Hip Hop models:
What people dont know is his whole objective at the time was to not be mentioned in the same breath as any other rapper. He was liek ‘I dont want to be in the company of any rappers.’ Then it went from there to ‘for real, at the end of the day, I’m off of this radio format too. I’m off of all of that. You couldnt say the words “single” or “radio” or “radio record” in the studio during [Yeezus recording session].
