Former Clipse rapper and current G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T recently spoke about the differences in working with Pharrell Williams and Kanye West.
In a new interview with Le Black Et La Pume via “You Heard That New,” Pusha said, “Kanye West, a lot of times, he gives me the skeleton of a beat. He’ll play either a sample or he’ll play me like, just an idea and he’ll ask me to write a verse to what I like in that idea…I’ll lay that verse down on that part of the beat, and then he takes the record and creates around my verse, versus Pharrell, a lot of times, I’ll go into the studio and he already has the beat, and then I lay a verse to the beat and it’s a done deal.”
Pusha continued, “Both of these guys are perfectionists in their own right. Pharrell, I think he works a little bit off of feeling, and I think Kanye is a master of structure and a master of tapping in to knowing what people are going to reaction to and respond to. He’s really like a hit-maker and and having that knowledge of what’s going on in America and…the world and exploiting that.”
