With his My Name Is My Name album released this week, hip-hop artist Pusha T has recently talked about the 'culture vultures' he mentions on the third verse of 'King Push', saying that "Rap is so emo right now."

"Rap is so emo and this is how you have to look at it. Cool. That's the change that's going on right now," he told hardknock.tv. "We'll take that. But now the emo guys and other rappers who aren't of the street world or of that mentality, they now want to use street slang and they want to use the street metaphors, the drug references because it makes their rhymes sound good. It makes their rhymes sound cool or whatever. Culture vultures, man. They're everywhere, even in Rap."

"When it comes to this D-Boy Rap, I don't think there's anybody better than me," Pusha T told MTV. "They gave it the title 'Coke Rap.' I really don't even like the title. The first record I heard was about the streets. It was called 'The Message.' They didn't give it a title of 'Coke Rap.' It was just about the reality of life and what's going on right now. I just feel like there's nobody as intricate as me when it comes to this." [via HipHopDX]
