Pusha T recently sat down for an interview with Joe La Puma for Sneeze Magazine. He discusses 50 cent being his favorite artist in the game. He also admits to passing on Hit Boy's beat for "N**gas In Paris." Confidently saying he would not have done justice to the beat in the same matter, The Throne (Jay-Z and Kanye West) have. Aside from the beat landing in the right hands that he and Hit Boy will have other opportunites to make bangers together.
Sneeze: You were around for some of the Watch The Throne sessions, were there any beats on that album that you passed on?
PUSHA: "Niggas in Paris!" [Laughs.] I tell people all the time that I don't know if I would've attacked it that way which means the record might not have been as special once I got on it.
Wow, that's interesting.
PUSHA: 'Ye gave me beats and that was in the bunch. "Niggas in Paris" was playful to me and I was in demonic rap mode. I was like, "Yo, I don't want this right now," he was like, "Man, this will be a club smash," and I'm like, "Maybe, but don't ask me to wrap my brain around that when I'm writing stuff like 'My God,' which is another Hit Boy beat."
