Pusha T may have gotten his big break due to his collaboration with Kanye West on “Runaway” and “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” but the rapper nearly walked out of Ye’s Hawaii session.
According to Steven Victor, the “Nostalgia” singer grew frustrated with Ye’s creative process and nearly bailed out on the studio sessions in Hawaii. Push had been invited to the tropical state by Rick Ross on behalf of Kanye.
Victor told Idea Generation that things were a bit heated in the studio, to say the least.
“There’d be periods where we would be in Hawaii for like two or three weeks and no work would be getting done. So for someone like Pusha, it’s like, ‘What is this? This doesn’t make sense.”
“We were supposed to go out there one time and he was like, ‘Tsk. I’m not going, man. This ain’t it.’ I was like, ‘Nah, we have to go! [Kanye’s] process is his process.’ He was like, ‘I’m not going.’”
The rapper would go on to work with Kanye West on projects like “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” and “Runaway.” in addition to inking a lucrative deal with G.O.O.D Music. It seems that everything was smoothed over in time, but it was a bit dicey as well.
