Remember Clipse? The rap-spittin’ duo behind 2002’s hit single “Grindin'”? Well, the Virginia Beach brothers are all grown up now, both going solo—and younger sibling Pusha T is coming out swinging. Having signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music in 2010, Pusha T’s debut album was greatly anticipated in a hip-hop world that's been lacking solid street cred lately—but that's exactly what's delivered on his newly dropped album My Name is My Name. Featuring tracks with assistance from heavy hitters like Kendrick Lamar and Kelly Rowland, including some production by old friend Pharrell, the new album is heralded as “easily one of the year’s best rap releases.” Watch Pusha T sling his trademark slang live at the Glass House tonight.
