In an interview with MTV, Pusha T discussed his new track “Exodus 23:1,” which was produced by RicoBeats, and features hit-making crooner The-Dream.

“It really started with this beat [from] Rico. We were like, ‘Yo, Dream would just sound amazing on the record, period.’ So we sent it out and it came back so quick. Dream was like, ‘Man this is one of the ones,'” Pusha explained. “Personally, I never thought the record was going to come back that quickly. I was in New Orleans somewhere and Rico was like, ‘Aye! Dream did it — he on the phone!’ I thought, ‘OK, wait a minute this might really be something.'”

Though Pusha did not reveal whether the song is, as many have surmised, a diss aimed at Young Money rapper Drake, he did praise Dream’s musicality, claiming he’s learned “so much about song structure” from the singer/producer.

“Musicality, to me in general, is missing, but [Dream] is a musician, he’s a fundamentalist. I’ve really taken on the student role,” Pusha continued. “I feel like I’m in with the best of the best. You’ve got Dream on one end, you’ve got Kanye on another end, and you can learn so much. I really look at myself as just a rapper’s rapper, but I’ve learned so much about song structure from Dream.”
