DETAILS: Pusha T Announces Title Of His New Album!

And the G.O.O.D. Music rapper decided to share some more info regarding his forthcoming project, by divulging the inspiration behind his album title – My Name Is My Name.

NEW MUSIC: Pusha T & Future “Pain!”

Pusha recently linked up with HipHopSince1987 to explain the title is a line from his song “Pain” – the lead single to his upcoming studio album – but he also mentions how it’s more than just a dope line. 

“And of course, that line comes from Marlo Stanfield in the series ‘The Wire.’ It’s one of the more prominent catch phrases he said during the end of that series.”

“He was just basically saying, ‘I am who I am. This is what I got. I stand on my name. I live this,'” he explained. “And if you know anything about his character, he’s young, brash, amongst a lot of heavyweights. But he didn’t care about any of the past or history. He was like, ‘Man, I’m out here to get my money at all costs. No rules, no regulations. I’m here to compete.’ I just felt like that really embodied my presence in the Rap game.”

The Wraith Of Caine mixtape is expected to drop before the end of this year.
