Pusha T Going Strong
Pusha T keeps it rolling forward with his unique freestyles, making his own way into the hip
Pusha T has teamed up with Kanye West for the exclusive Yeezus tour in Australia and Europe.
In addition to these international appearances, Pusha T continues to entertain audiences throughout North America, occasionally
teaming up with the likes of 2 Chainz and Pharrell Williams.
Although Pusha T tickets contain the rapper's stage
name, he was originally known as Terrence Thornton. He boasts an incredibly talented family, with his brother -- No Malice
-- making up the other half of his rap duo, Clipse. The two were fascinated by hip hop from a young age, but were initially
held back by their mother, who has been accused of preventing Pusha T and No Malice from attending Fresh Fest when they were
Originally based out of Virginia Beach, Pusha T has established quite the name for himself in the hip
hop world. Since his big breakthrough as a member of Clipse, Pusha T tickets have been in high demand, both in terms of solo
ventures and collaborations with his brother, No Malice.
Pusha T and No Malice grew up in Virginia Beach,
where they formed the group Clipse in 1992. At the time, Pusha T was just 15 years old. The duo received little notoriety
until the late 90s, when they teamed up with Pharell Williams (also from Virginia Beach) to land a deal with Elektra Records.
Following the release of their album Exclusive Audio Footage, the two managed to land collaborations with Nivea and Kelis,
which earned them a good deal of notoriety. Their huge breakthrough -- and biggest hit to date -- arrived with the release
of the album "Hell Hath No Fury." This record received a great deal of praise from the critics and sold an impressive 78,000
copies in the first week following its release.
"Hell Hath No Fury" was a huge commercial success for Clipse,
but later, Pusha T and No Malice decided that they were ready to go their separate ways and establish careers of their own.
In 2011, Pusha T released his first major solo EP, dubbed "Fear of God II: Let Us Pray." Two years later, he released "My
Name Is My Name," his first solo album. This project involved quite a few big hip hop names, including Kanye West, Notz, Pharrell
Williams, Chris Brown and Big Sean, among others. "My Name Is My Name" was met with critical acclaim, as well as a decent
level of commercial success, debuting at number four on the Billboard 200. In response to the album's critical and commercial
success, Pusha T decided to pursue a follow-up. In an interview with AskMen, he revealed that he intended to name the record
"King Push," although he was reluctant to offer up further information related to the album's release date.
No Malice to 2 Chainz and even Kanye West, Pusha T loves collaborating with other hip hop artists. A great deal of his concert
experience has resulted from these collaborations, with the rapper having toured extensively during his time with Clipse.
Since forging his own path as a solo artist, he's remained active on the concert circuit, appearing at such major events as
Lollapalooza Chile, Coachella and the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. Despite his often controversial lyrics, Pusha T is known
for his engaging performance style, which attracts fans from all around the world.
