Pusha-T has spoken out about recent developments surrounding the artist formerly known as Kanye West, who in recent months has been at the center of ongoing criticism in response to a string of comments widely slammed as anti-Semitic.
In a recently shared Los Angeles Times chat, Push—who was recently in the house for the 2022 edition of ComplexCon—spoke briefly about these “very disappointing” recent months.
“Definitely affected me,” he told writer August Brown, as seen in the video below. “To describe it, I’d say it’s been disappointing, very disappointing. You know, just as a Black man in America, there is no room for bigotry or hate speech or anything like that.”
Elsewhere in the Times discussion, King Push spoke candidly on what Ye has meant for him in a creative sense (“freedom”) and reflected on both the personal and broader importance of recently landing his first-ever No. 1 debut with the acclaimed It’s Almost Dry. See more here and/or below.
