“Pusha T AKA the G.O.O.D. Music Golden Child” sits down with Dream Sessions in conjunction with his latest album release My Name Is My Name to talk about the album, his clothing line “Play Cloth”, and why 24 hour room service is “king.” Terrence Thornton better known as Pusha T describes how he developed a passion for hip-hop “at an early age, mimicking my brothers.” He then went on to talk about his new album: “I took the eras of 1994 to 1999 and created an album that [was] sonically reminiscent of that era in terms of energy. My music is roll down every window in your car and ride past the club four times before you get out music”. When talking about one of the producers on his album, Pharrell Williams, Pusha reveals how their relationship works: “We understand each other, it’s a little give and take. We’re not on the same level and in the same space creatively, but I think we balance each other out well and it makes for very dynamic records”. Pusha T exposed his softer side when explaining the music on his iPod at the moment: “I’m heavily into R&B so I’ll go back as far as the Guy albums, Teddy Riley’s Guy.” The interview moves onto the subject of hip-hop and the direction it’s heading in as a genre, to which he replied it “reminds me of Indie Rock a lot now, in just the way in which it grows”. On a lighter note, when asked about his beauty regimen on tour, Pusha T laughed at the wording of the question and admitted to using spas “on a relaxation tip”. He expressed his respect for Pharrell Williams in regards to his inspiration behind his clothing line: “Pharrell to me is like the style icon of hip-hop.”
