Pusha T‘s reign as president of Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music has come to an end. In his new interview with XXL, he revealed he’s no longer associated with the record company. He’s still, however, at Def Jam, where he has a 50/50 deal for his music and own label, Heir Wave Music Group.
Pusha and Ye have worked together since 2010, a period during which King Push says he never held his tongue. “I never had a filter with him,” the rapper said of his relationship with Kanye. “I’ve always spoke my mind.”
Push claims he also talked to Ye about his antisemitic comments; the two are no longer on speaking terms.
“He’s not speaking to me now,” Push explained of the status of his friendship with Ye. “If you ain’t with it, you ain’t down. And I ain’t with it. I’m not budging on that. I’m not with it.”
“I heard about this new stuff [on Infowars]. I don’t know,” he continued. “It’s something that just sort of tells me he’s not well, at the same time. I will say that. It’s going to places where it’s no way to move around it.”
According to Pusha T, his last conversation with Ye took place while he was “still on tour.” It allegedly ended with Ye thanking Push for never going against him in public.
Pusha T recalled, “He got off the phone saying, ‘Thank you. I know you don’t agree with me, but you never kill me in the public. And some people can’t wait to do that.'”
