In the latest episode of SoulCulture TV series My Favourite Verse, Pusha T discusses “probably one of my best verses in recent years” – his appearance on “So Appalled” from Kanye West‘s critically acclaimed 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, on which he featured alongside Jay-Z, Cyhi the Prynce, Swizz Beatz and RZA.
“I feel like it’s a verse that’s a standout moment for me and a lot of people took notice at that point,” the Virginia representing emcee reflects. “If they weren’t noticing before, they definitely took notice at that time because everybody else was on that track – and to have a stellar verse like that…
“I got busy on ‘So Appalled’ and people need to understand that. I won it,” he asserts of his performance on the track, produced by Kanye, No I.D. and Mike Dean.
“The truth of the matter is, it wasn’t what it was when I did so appalled – it was just me and ‘Ye on it,” he continues. “[Then] when I heard ‘So Appalled’ it was me, ‘Ye, Jay-Z and Cyhi. I don’t know if Cyhi had heard [my] verse but I know Jay had… I guess, from what he heard he was like, ‘man I’m getting on this joint too.’
“It was a good moment because I don’t know if I’ll ever get on a record with Jay-Z again, but if I don’t – I did.”
