Rapper Pusha T on Kanye, Pharrell and that Much-Anticipated Clipse Reunion.

While celebrating the fifth anniversary of his Play Cloths line, the rapper gave us a peek of what’s in store for him in 2014.

By Nisha Gopalan

Last year, Pusha T — the frequent Kanye West collaborator who made his name as one-half of the exceptional rap act Clipse — dropped My Name Is My Name, which most critics agree was one of the year’s best albums. (Even The New York Times gushed: “Pusha T is a technician who seethes but never breaks form. He’s a disciplined rapper, a relic of a different era.”)

These days, he’s been working with producer Scott Storch (Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Big Boi) on King Push, a highly anticipated follow-up. “Scott, he’s a great talent, a great creator,” Pusha T explains. “We got in there, and he made some heat — and he keeps sending me heat. So we’re gonna see what it’s going to turn into.”

Société Perrer’s Rana Good met up with the tireless hip-hop overachiever in a snowed-out New York City, where he was celebrating the fifth anniversary of Play Cloths, the clothing line he started five years back with No Malice, his brother and Clipse partner-in-rhyme. We asked Pusha T about his style, his relationship with old friends Kanye West and Pharrell Williams — and of course, what’s going on with that Clipse reunion we’re all itching for. As with everything he does, the rapper says modestly, “We’re just striving for more greatness.”
