Pusha T releases the video for his single “King Push” single from his upcoming album My Name is My Name. The track is produced by Kanye West as well as actorJoaquin Phoenix.
A member of the hip-hop duo Clipse, rapper Pusha T was born Terrence Thornton in the Bronx but was raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia along with his brother Gene Thornton. With Gene taking on the name Malice, the brothers formed Clipse in the early ’90s, quickly forming a relationship with the Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams and embarking on a career that would include major-label record deals and critically revered albums. In 2010, the duo members announced they were taking a break to focus on solo careers. Pusha would sign with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint and land on his new label boss’ album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that same year. The next year he would release both the Fear of God mixtape and his official solo debut album, Fear of God II: Let Us Pray.
