As Pusha T gears up to release his debut solo album, My Name Is My Name, he drops the third episode, “Birth Of A Rapper,” of his “MNIMN Testimonial” web series and he discusses growing up, dealing drugs, how he came to rap and how far he’s come.

My Name is My Name might seem like a rather obvious statement and dubious title for a record, but after checking out the first in a series of video “testimonials” (this one is called “A Name I Call Myself”), the origin becomes infinitely clearer. Check out the new Orson Whales & Kris Ex directed clip on that Pusha T LP and look for the record, which features Kanye West, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz and more, on October 8th. It’s currently up for preorder at iTunes with a free download of the new track “Nosetalgia” featuring the homie Kendrick Lamar.

My Name Is My Name is slated to hit stores this Tuesday, October 8th, and is available for pre-order [here].
