Pusha T On Working With Kanye: “I Have Never Rewritten More Verses In My Life Than Right Now.”
 

 

We all know the perfectionist that Kanye is, but now Pusha T is discovering it first hand. The G.O.O.D. Music spitter sat with my buddy Brad over at Complex where he broke down the experience in working with Kanye and having Yeezy critique his work night in and night out. Check out the excerpt, below!

As far as revisions go and revising your verse when you’re dealing with G.O.O.D. Music, it happens to all of us. I have never rewritten more verses in my life than right now. Being signed to G.O.O.D. it just comes with the territory, man. These guys are perfectionists. I write verses and already think they’re perfect. At the end of the day, ‘Ye will come through and be like, “Ah, no. We can do better or we can edit that out.” He’s really taught me in a sense of what he’s looking for now, so now I sort of got it down to a science so I don’t got to revisit it so much. But it’s not beyond any of us. We revise stuff all the time.

On Undun they did. Mostly because the whole album had to follow a narrative and come from one man's perspective.

I love that Kanye does this, though. Pusha said he had to rewrite his verse for Runaway like four times, and IMO that was one of the best verses of the year.

Being a perfectionist when you can't even drop a dope verse.

People really underrate that song. Runaway >>>> Honestly, one of Kanye's best songs.

Ye's ear must be off then. No way in hell this should have been edited.

Everyone has their purpose in the crew. Kanye doesn't go to Big Sean for lyrics. That's what Pusha/Common is for
