During his interview with XXL interview, he stated, “I’m just following that mold. I feel like when it comes to my taste level and my intricacies of rap, I’m on par with that. That’s how I’m molding my whole everything.” Pusha T confirmed that Kanye West will be the executive producer on his new album, King Push. He also said in the interview that, “I’m coming for crowns at this point when it comes to Hip Hop”.

That wasn’t the 1st time Pusha mentioned Jay Z. In 2013, he mentioned that he feels like his body of work, stacks up with Hov’s. .

“People look at Jay in a certain light as far as lyrics, street lyrics and D-Boy lyrics,” Pusha T said. “There’s a certain level of sophistication that people have always put on Jay. He’s earned it, but I feel like I’m up there, as well. I feel like this is somebody who lives it. This is somebody who’s there. This is somebody who’s in the mix of it. I don’t want to be overlooked in no way, shape or form when it comes to street Hip Hop or any accolades that I feel are given to any artists that speak of this type of content. I always want to be compared. Jay’s the best living, so compare me to his greatness, especially if we’re talking about this. If we’re talking about the streets. I hear a lot of people saying things like, ‘The crown,’ and all this and all that, but if we’re talking about that and we’re talking about streets and lyric-driven Hip Hop, I need to be in that conversation at all times, so I just put myself there. If nobody else wants to say it, I’ll say it.”
