Pusha T is a captivating figure in the hip-hop world. His body of work often arouses a provocative response. The same thing happened with one of his insta post which he decided to address in a recent interview.
Amid the usual grid of promotional clips and photos of his children, one picture on Pusha T’s Instagram page sparked an unusual amount of online chatter early this year. He emphatically broke down his gripping Lana Del Rey Instagram picture recently to Rolling Stone, AllHipHop reports. His entrenched perspective often resonates with the world and Lana’s provocative photograph is definitely serving up his stance.
In January, he accompanied a video of himself rhyming along to his new single Diet Coke with a photo of Lana Del Rey’s face from 2017’s Lust for Life. In the photo a certain white powder made Lana’s face invisible. The post kickstarted the campaign for his upcoming album with the cryptic image and song preview leaving Lana fans fiending for a collaboration.
The rapper said he posted the shot because he identifies with the themes of the ‘High by the Beach’ and ‘Florida Kilos’ singer.
“Musically, I think Lana Del Rey speaks to the same subject matter, but just on different ends of it. You can hear remnants of drug indulgence and addiction. So it’s like, ‘Man, why not?’ I thought it made sense”.
The two haven’t collaborated yet but according to the rapper there’s at least a tentative plan.
“One of the heads of Interscope called right after the picture came out and asked me to get on a remix” he says, laughing. “I forgot which song but I’m still waiting for them to send it over”.
Earlier this week, the rapper was also at the center of one of hip-hop’s most unusual beefs. Then again beefs in the rap game is nothing new for Pusha T.
Thus far, Lana Del Rey has yet to publicly address Mr. Thornton’s Instagram post. Keep following Thirsty to be updated.
