Reason #2: Pusha T really took his time while collecting beats for My Name Is My Name and listened to plenty of productions before settling on the tracks he eventually selected.
My Name Is My Name is an incredibly lyrical album. That shouldn't come as a surprise. After all, Pusha has made a living off delivering line after line on all of his projects. But he has also been blessed with a lot of solid production efforts over the years, and that continues on his solo debut. He grabbed beats from a laundry list of different producers—everyone from Kanye West, Swizz Beatz and Pharrell to Don Cannon, Rico Beats and Nottz contributed productions—but it also sounds like Pusha did more than just take the first beat that producers threw at him. The production on MNIMN alone is complex, interesting and cohesive, which makes the album as a whole a worthwhile listen.
