n an interview with GQ Hype, Pusha revealed that she asked Kendrick Lamar to be on her latest album. The Compton rapper was “one of the first people he called,” but they couldn’t find a song that was different enough from their latest collaboration, “Nosetalgia,” in 2013’s My Name Is My Name. Pusha didn’t want to repeat herself, so she finally decided to move on.
However, It’s Almost Dry includes JAY-Z, but Push was careful not to make another “Drug Dealer Anonymous.”
“I was so determined not to make the same JAY-Z recording,” he said of Pharrell’s “Neck & Wrist.”
He also recently weighed in on GQ and in 2018 declared Future the Best Rapper Alive, a title given to him by Complex.
“The future came into play and created a strip. So even than that alone, he can be considered by someone to be the greatest rapper alive.” “There’s no argument. It must be respected, the future must be respected.”
Pusha won the first No.1 album of her 20-year career with It’s Almost Dry and debuted on the Billboard 200 with 55,000 equivalent album units.
He will perform the album live when he departs for the “It’s Almost Dry Tour”, which begins in Seattle on May 29.
As for Kendrick, he is set to release his own album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, on May 13. Earlier this week, he hinted that it could be a book as well as a duo album.
