Pusha-T talks about Kendrick Lamar’s new album, calls it “Great Competition”

Recently Pusha-T sat down with Hotnewhiphop for a lengthy interview. The 45-year-old rapper mostly discussed his latest project, “It’s Almost Dry,” which earned him his first career number-one LP and called it “the album of the year.”

This isn’t the first time King Push has declared “It’s Almost Dry” to be the best rap album of 2022. Earlier this month, at a live event in Los Angeles, the New York Rapper said:

“It’s Almost Dry, rap album of the motherf*cking year. They can’t f*ck with me!”

During a conversation, Pusha-T was asked what he thought of Kendrick Lamar’s latest project “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.”

“I think Kendrick’s album… I think he made a strong album,”  he said. “I think his album is definitely a conversation piece, for sure. Kendrick does what he does lyrically. It was impressive, for sure.”

Push also called “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” a “great competition,” noting that because both LPs are so different in style, choosing between them comes down to personal preference. When comparing the two albums, Push stated that, for him, “It’s Almost Dry” is the “rap album of the year,” claiming that he crafted precisely what he wanted to make and put out the exact vibe he wanted to put out.

“I think it is a great competition. It is a matter of what you want to hear. I feel like for what it is that I do and what I was going for, and as I said, this is rap album of the year to me. ‘It’s Almost Dry’. That’s the mood and that’s the energy. I think I put out that type of energy. I don’t think me and Kendrick made the same type of album, at all. It is two different listens.”

To be clear, Pusha-T isn’t the only one who believes ‘It’s Almost Dry’ is one of this year’s greatest albums. Tom Brady agreed with the rapper on Twitter this week. “Album of the year!”  The American football quarterback tweeted at Push.
