Pusha T Talks Signing Desiigner & Being A Fan Of Jay Z’s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) One of the first major moves to take place under the Pusha T G.O.O.D. Music presidency was the signing of an unknown teenage rapper named Desiigner. The Brooklyn native would go on to have the #1 song in the country and become the top breakout rap star of the year.

Hot 97’s Nessa sat down with Pusha to talk about adding the “Panda” rhymer to the label that Kanye West built. King Push credited his newest colleague for helping to energize the roster.

“His energy has been a spark for all of us, I feel. The ‘Panda’ record is what it is, and there’s so much more to come,” said Pusha about Desiigner.

The Virginia representative added, “[Desiigner] is a real creative.”

The conversation also included Pusha T reflecting on Jay Z’s debut studio album Reasonable Doubt. The Hip Hop classic was released twenty years ago this year.

“Without a Reasonable Doubt, there is not a Pusha T,” he declared. “One of my favorite albums of all time.”

Pusha recently partnered with Jay for the single “Drug Dealers Anonymous.” The record premiered on Tidal.
