Pusha T Teases Dr. Dre About Collaboration and Exposes Failed NAS Feature.
Pusha T conducted a listening session for his new album It’s Almost Dry in New York City on Tuesday night (April 12). The G.O.O.D. Music president performed the entire album in front of music industry figures, media professionals, and some of his rap contemporaries.
While Kanye West and Pharrell share production duties on the 12-track album, which is led by the hits “Diet Coke” and “Neck & Wrist,” King Push is seeking to collaborate with another iconic producer in the near future.
On Tuesday night, the Virginia Beach native teased a possible collaboration in the caption of an Instagram photo of him hanging out with Dr. Dre at his album premiere party.
Pusha T Teases Dr. Dre
Pusha T has a long list of rap legends on his wish list, and Dr. Dre isn’t the only one. Pyrex P revealed during his It’s Almost Dry event on Tuesday night that he tried unsuccessfully to get Nas to feature on “Hear Me Clearly,” his Vince Carter-inspired contribution to Nigo’s I Know NIGO! album.
Pusha T is yet to collaborate with Dr. Dre or Nas in his illustrious 20-year career, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t met the rap legends.
Pusha T released his remix of Drake and Meek Mill’s “R.I.C.O.” on Dre’s Beats 1 Radio show The Pharmacy in 2015. The same year, The Doctor and his N.W.A collaborators Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella, ranked Pusha T among their favorite current rappers.
