Pusha T Explains Why He Named His Album “My Name Is My Name”
Pusha T explains the meaning behind his album title, “My Name is My Name.” He debuted solo on G.O.O.D. music with his album.
In a recent interview with HipHopSince1987, Pusha T discusses the meaning behind his album title. ”Basically, I was trying to pick a title that embodied who I am as an artist…and I wanted people to understand that Pusha is everything that I really, really am.”
Pusha T got his album title through inspiration. “Actually, it’s a line in ‘Pain’ where I actually say ‘My name is my name.’ And of course, that line comes from Marlo Stanfield in the series ‘The Wire.’ It’s one of the more prominent catch phrases he said during the end of that series.”
“He was just basically saying, ‘I am who I am. This is what I got. I stand on my name. I live this,’” he explained. “And if you know anything about his character, he’s young, brash, amongst a lot of heavyweights. But he didn’t care about any of the past or history. He was like, ‘Man, I’m out here to get my money at all costs. No rules, no regulations. I’m here to compete.’ I just felt like that really embodied my presence in the Rap game.”Photo credit: allhiphop.com
