Pusha T released his latest album It's Almost Dry on Friday, April 22 with Kanye West and Pharrell handling most of the production.
But it turns out that respected California producer Madlib could've been on the project because he submitted some beats.
None of them made the album, however, and the Virginia Beach rapper explained why on his It’s Almost Dry radio show.
"I just think he’s really dope at finding ill sounds and ill chops, and things of that nature," said Pusha about Madlib, according to HipHopDX. “But at the same time, it was feeling like a beat tape situation. I felt like to step it up I had to be produced, to step it up from Daytona. "
"When you think about [my last album], it’s just beats and hard raps. I wasn’t produced," he added. "The structure of Kanye West, you know, taking these things out or whatever the case may be. Honestly, it was just that. It’s Almost Dry is an exercise, definitely on the Pharrell side, in being produced.”
Do you think that Pusha made the wrong decision by not having Madlib produce a few songs on the album?
