Pusha T takes a late night stroll down the streets of LA before being joined by K Dot for his latest black & white visual ‘Nosetalgia’ which is definitely one of the stand out cuts from Pusha’s forthcoming album ‘My Name Is My Name’.

In a year ladled with many major releases, Pusha T’s, My Name Is My Name some how manages to buck both trends and every other major release, to be become one of best records released this year. In many ways it seems to be Yeezus done right, while the rest reaks of raw undiluted metaphors and lyrical skill. But where Yeezus and Magna Carta Holy Grail failed, My Name Is My Name gets it so right. Pusha T has undoubtedly cemented himself as a true quality driven artist with this EP.
Every track feels carefully thought out and is mechanically sound, while all featured artists are utilized to their max potential, enhancing both the mood and style of the album. (Especially Kendrick Lamar on Nostalgia) All of the beats are both creative, while still folding into the album nicely. Particular Stand outs include those done by the Neptunes and Good Music.
Pusha T is quite effective at painting a lifestyle good bad turned to artist hungry to reach the top of the game. While Yeezy, excellent production serves as a suitable back drop. The different between this and Yeezus, however is that Pusha T, truly retains the lyrical ability to back it up.
It is difficult not to reap this album enormous praise, when it so perfectly delivers on exactly what was promised.
Perhaps the only real “issue” with this EP are the questionable additions of MC; “Big Sean” and “2 Chainz” neither of which can even come close to holding their own lyrically with Pusha. Both of their versus feel unintentionally awkward and funny on and all but introspective and fascinating album.
Yet, neither of them are truly enough to detract from the album as a whole.
Surely, a classic in the making.
