For those expecting to hear Pusha T's debut album any time soon are going to have to wait a little bit longer. Originally set for release on July 16th, he revealed on radio station Power 98 that the album has been pushed back a month due to "politics and logistics" although, according to Hudson Mohawke, the album is still being produced.

As well as Mohawke, the album is set to feature production by The Neptunes, The-Dream, Swizz Beatz, Kanye West, among others as well as featuring rappers such as Rick Ross and Kendrick Lamar. A veritable smorgasbord of hip-hops finest which has led Pusha T to comment, "My album is the best album of the year… I think the streets are going to have a classic hip-hop album. My Name is My Name is definitely the hardest album that's going to come out this year for sure."

He also revealed how he managed to get hold of lead single 'Who I Am', which was originally for Kanye, "This record, man, I'm going to be honest. I had to fight and steal this record from 'Ye. I heard the record and I loved it, and he called to tell me he wasn't going to be able to give me the record. I ran in the studio real quick and laid a verse to it. I was like, 'Nah, this is my record already. I already rapped to it. What are you talking about?' We just went back and forth, and he ended up giving me the record… It's just that energy I'm trying to bring back to the streets."

Pusha T also dismissed the rumours that the sequel to G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer, Cruel Winter, was in the works, "We're not doing the Cruel Winter album or the Cruel Summer sequel. There are too many projects we got going on," Pusha said. "Like I said, you got the Yeezus album, you got the Hall of Fame coming from [Big] Sean, you got my project, you got the 2 Chainz project. Like once we get all of that situated, then I'm sure… I mean, you even have Common coming. Right now, we’re not working on [any] compilations." [via CoS]
