Watch Pusha T’s ‘My Name Is My Name’ Testimonial (Part 2)

Orson Whales and Kris Ex‘s testimonial series on Pusha T‘s upcoming ‘My Name Is My Name’ album continues with episode two, titled ‘Residual Truth.’ This time, the Clipse MC reflects on his drug dealing past and how seeing his older brother become an addict at an early age desensitized him to the harrowing effects.

“I really look at drugs and how drugs destroyed the community, it’s sort of shakey ground with me,” he admits. “I have literally one of my idols become addicted to drugs at like 19 or 20 years old — somebody who I think is the freshest ever. You model anything you do after them, and I’m just desensitized on the effects on what can go on in the community.”

On the flipside, ‘The Wire’ star Tristan “Mack” Wilds and Tony Lewis Jr., award-winning community activist and son of one of the biggest drug kingpins in the Washington, D.C. area, attest to how Pusha’s lyrical topics resonate so well in the ‘hood.
