During a recent interview with HipHopSince1987, Pusha T spoke on the meaning behind the album title, the release date, producers on the album, Biblical themed album titles in Hip Hop, up & coming artists, the success of Play Cloths, and much more.
Pusha speaks on the inspiration behind the My Name Is My Name title:
Basically, I tried to pick a title that embodied who I am as an artist. I wanted people to understand like Pusha is everything that I really, really am. Actually, there is a line in “Pain” where I say My Name Is My Name, that line comes from Marlo Stanfield from the series The Wire. It was one of the more prominent catch phrases that he said at the end of that series. He was basically saying, I am who I am, I stand on my name I live this. I really felt that embodied my presence in the rap game.
Push reveals the albums producers besides the obvious, Kanye and Pharell:
We got Dream on the album, Swizz Beatz on the album, Rico Beats as well, he did Exodus. Just Blaze, I got No I.D.
