After giving us the backstory on how he wrote “Timmy Turner,” the G.O.O.D. Music emcee turned his attention to what it’s like being mentored by Kanye West. “He told me, ‘we’re not rappers, we’re artists.’ And I had that mindset coming to him. That’s what made me sign with Kanye West. Period,” he says. “He’s just like having a big brother at home.”
Watch all this and more — including the scoop on Pusha T‘s upcoming album! — in our exclusive interview, above.
