Pusha recently said in an interview that his project will be the best one to come out this year.
“Well, I’ve heard a lot of them. And mine is better. [Laughs.] I just know what I’m looking to bring to the music game, and it’s a certain level of energy. I’ve made the perfect album that I want to put in my car and ride to. It’s a certain energy that makes you do stupid things like ride past the club three times with the windows down when it’s cold outside just so people can hear what you’re listening to. I made that album. And I was that stupid guy at one point, so I know I made it.” (Esquire)
He also spoke on Kanye West executive producing the LP.
“Ye is a genius, man. Working under him, being a student, because that’s exactly what I turned into — being a student under his school is a blessing. Somebody who’s in touch and in tune with who I am as an artist — he’s a fan of my work — and trying to expound on that and make that as great as possible, and still knowing how to be unorthodox, and still being Kanye West the mad scientist, the genius guy, and have those elements sprinkled over my hardcore, street rap music — you couldn’t ask for anything else better. That’s how great songs like “Numbers on the Boards” come out.” (Esquire)
