Pusha T Reveals How He Convinced Kanye West To Approve ‘MNIMN’ Tracklisting: “Ye Only Wanted 9 Records”

G.O.O.D Music’s Pusha T recently discussed his new My Name Is My Name solo album and how he convinced Kanye West to extend the amount of tracks to feature on his long-awaited debut.

According to Pusha, Mr. West wanted him to slim the LP down to no more than nine records.

“It’s twelve songs and I had to fight for twelve because it was only supposed to be nine,” Pusha revealed in an interview. “Ye only wanted nine records. And I was like, ‘I got twelve, man!’ [laughs] And my win was, ‘Man, Yeezus got ten songs, so how you only gonna give me nine?’ [laughs] Then he had to sort of think about it and be like, ‘All right, man.’ And he just let me get my artist thing off.” (NPR)

Despite ample competition, Pusha managed to push out over 70,000 copies in week one.

Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz sold roughly 274,000 copies to claim the top spot. She beat out last week’s No. 1, Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, which sold 72,000 and placed No. 5 on the chart. Pusha T also made his debut this week with My Name Is My Name, which sold a little over 74,000 copies to land at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The album was backed by the singles “Pain” featuring Future and “Sweet Serenade” featuring Chris Brown. Considering this is Pusha’s debut solo album, the 36-year-old veteran rapper from Virginia had a commendable performance on the charts. Danny Brown debuts at No. 17 with his impressive album Old. The Fool’s Gold release from the Detroit MC moved 15,000 copies in its first week. (Complex)

Recently, Pusha said he has never reaped the benefit of snatching huge record sales and won’t start worrying about it at this point in his career.

“I ain’t sold a lot of records ever,” Push said in an interview. “Like for real, being honest. It ain’t no big deal to me. My grassroots following, my fans is what keep me alive out here and doing these shows everyday.” (“The Breakfast Club”)

Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross recently revealed he sparked the idea of Pusha joining the G.O.O.D family three years ago.

Rick Ross recently stopped by DJ Skee’s radio show to talk about his new album Mastermind and the success of Maybach Music Group over the years. During the interview Ross also revealed that he was the reason Kanye West ended up signing Pusha T to G.O.O.D. Music. He says the conversation started when they were recording in Hawaii back in 2010 for Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. “I was like, ‘Ye, that boy Pusha T, man, that boy dope,'” he recalls. “He don’t got no situation right now. That’s something you should sleep on.” Pusha would later sign with G.O.O.D. Music in the fall of 2010. (Complex)

Game Bids Farewell To Interscope, Officially Joins Lil Wayne & Baby

Posted in 1 on October 13, 2013 by bobbybounce

Game-Lil-Wayne-2010-03-08-300x300 West Coast rapper Game has officially parted ways with Interscope Records and joined forces with the Cash Money Records powerhouse made up of Birdman, Lil Wayne and more.

According to Game, he is now down with the Cash Money family.

Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne have a new labelmate. The Game has officially joined the YMCMB family as the label’s newest signee. Birdman made the announcement on Twitter. “S/O 2MY@thegame Westcoast makit Official.RICHGANG.YMCMBusine$$,” tweeted the Cash Money CEO. The Game saluted his new team. “@BIRDMAN5STAR time to close the door on these niggas !!!! R$CHGANG,” he responded. The Compton rapper, 33, was previously signed to Interscope Records, where he released five No. 1 albums including his 2005 debut The Documentary, which was released in conjunction with G-Unit Records.

Recently, Game said there was ample interest in how his next LP would be released.

“Recently, a free agent,” Game said in an interview. “I was signed to Interscope for my last five albums which, of course, are all platinum and I’ve been taking a lot of meetings and on a lot of conference calls about my next move and I just – I haven’t narrowed it down yet.” (“Larry King Now”)

Last fall, the West Coast rapper announced Rick Ross had displayed interest in snagging him up after his final contractual Interscope Records obligation.

“This is my last studio album for Interscope,” Game told Sway during Wednesday’s episode of “RapFix Live.” “I talked to Ross the other day — shout-out to MMG, Wale and Meek Mill, they started off the MMG Tour in Penn State. I rocked with ’em onstage and I was talking to Ross, and Ross was like, ‘What’s up with that last album?’ And I’m like, ‘You know, it’s the last album.’ And he was like, ‘Nah, never mind, Jimmy ain’t gon’ let you go.’ So that and talking to [Cash Money’s] Baby and [Lil Wayne] two times a week, you know, it’s cool. I kinda feel like a little free agent in the league real quick.” (MTV)

The Black Wall Street leader also hinted at the possibility of going dolo.

“I been waking up for the last week and just thinking about my own independent grind. I got enough fans to push it. I know if I need media coverage, I got real friends, but I’m just gonna ride it out with Interscope and stay loyal to them and really get this Jesus Piece album going and then make my decision later on.” (MTV)

In spring 2012, Cash Money boss Birdman spoke on his close friend’s label status.

“Game is signed to Interscope–I don’t really know his situation. I don’t like to get into talks with other people who are signed to other labels because I wouldn’t want them n*ggas f*cking with nothing that’s mine. So I show respect to whoever they with I know that I told Game, if the time come I would love to sign Game. I think he’s a very talented artist. But right now he’s signed with Interscope, maybe he’s got another album. But when time comes, I’m gonna be there for him too.” (Complex)
