During an interview to promote his new album It’s Almost Dry, the rap veteran confirmed what many hip-hop fans feel, that Hov is the best to ever do it.
“Hov to me, he’s like the best rapper, like just period,” Pusha told SiriusXM’s Swaggy Sie.
The rap gods recently worked together on the Pharrell-produced “Neck & Wrist” off It’s Almost Dry. Pusha revealed that he made sure he had the right record before taking it to the Roc Nation boss.
“When I reach out to him about a record, I feel like he sort of knows that I’m not reaching out to him about no bullshit,” he said. “I must really think that this is a joint or something that’s gonna add to the great legacy that he has.”
He knew that only JAY-Z would be able to bring something different to the song. “Where he’s made it in his career and in his life, he can always add an uptick to the record. I can’t say what he says.”
In addition to JAY-Z, It’s Almost Dry features appearances from Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Lil Uzi Vert, Don Toliver, and more. Earlier today, Pusha dropped the video for “Call My Bluff.”
Despite Hov’s greatness, that didn’t stop Bobby Shmurda from recently saying he would rather have a verse from Pop Smoke than JAY-Z, prompting a debate on social media.
