GrammyÂ®-nominated, multi-platinum artist and G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T will release the prelude to his hotly anticipated album KING PUSH, entitled KING PUSH – DARKEST BEFORE DAWN: THE PRELUDE out December 18th on the Def Jam Recordings/G.O.O.D. Music label. The first song off the album, â€œUntouchable,â€ a menacing track showcasing Pushaâ€™s lyricism over a Notorious B.I.G. sample and beat by Timbaland, was released last week.
DARKEST BEFORE DAWN will feature collaborations with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Jill Scott, Kehlani, The-Dream, and Beanie Siegel, with production by Timbaland, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Hudson Mohawke and Diddy. DARKEST BEFORE DAWN is the follow-up to My Name Is My Name, Pusha Tâ€™s critically acclaimed debut of 2013, which entered the Billboard Hip-Hop Album Chart at #2.
Pusha T was signed to G.O.O.D. Music (Getting Out Our Dreams) in 2010 by founder and 21-time Grammy AwardÂ®-winning superstar Kanye West. Since 2010, Pusha T has garnered an impressive track record. He was featured that year on the RIAA platinum Top 10 single â€œRunaway,â€ from Kanye Westâ€™s classic RIAA platinum album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. In 2012, Pusha T took the lead on a number of tracks from Kanyeâ€™s influential Cruel Summer album, most notably the #1 triple-platinum â€œMercyâ€ (with Big Sean and 2 Chainz). Pusha T has also become a sought after collaborator with EDMâ€™s biggest names following the success of his 2014 track â€œBurialâ€ with Yogi and Skrillex. Throughout 2015, Pusha Tâ€™s music has scored many of the biggest moments in film, television and commercials, providing the soundtrack for everything from adidas campaigns to HBO primetime shows to the VMAs.
Pusha T (born Terrence Thornton in the Bronx) emerged in the fertile hip-hop music scene centered in Virginia Beach, not far from where he grew up in Norfolk. In 1992, he and his brother Gene formed the much revered, platinum selling rap duo the Clipse.
