Do you honestly think Pusha T is going to blow up?

I want your honest opinion on this!

Seems to me like Kanye is putting this dude in every position to win (put him on his first single off his last album, Good Music album, etc).

    blow up? define this term...


    Have these new rappers type success (K Dot, J Cole, Big Sean,etc)

    Not like Kendrick, Cole, and Sean, but he's gonna make a damn good album with moderate success. Thats all I expect. He along with Big Boi have been the most consistent quality rappers

    he can get close to gold... he has a grassroots following... and he has the Kanye cosign... him and the GOOD team just need to follow the correct formula...

    Why didn't that work for Common's last two albums then and Common is way more exposed than Pusha is nowadays with his acting career?

    Common alienated a lot of people with the Finding Forever so he fell out of the spotlight until The Dreamer came out. He got a lot of buzz but that was released in 2011 and people are fickle. Not even Kanye is selling like he sold in his earlier years. I don't think PushaT has the same crossover appeal as the other guys. He has to get on some black hippy or sensitive shit and he needs far more diverse raps or at least talk about bitches and weed.

    Honestly? No. I like Pusha and I think he's carved himself his little spot that's lot of rappers would enjoy having but that's it. He'll drop a dope album that will be moderately successful and that's it.

    Nope dude is dam near 40 rapping like it's still 1989. It's too late to establish yourself as that type of artist at this point in his career. Especially in terms of blowing up. Pusha is pretty well known but I'm just not sure that he's gonna blow and push big numbers sales wise. He might do big sean numbers b/c they weren't' that impressive. But Sean has had a lot of success with his singles. Now when him and Malice get back together he will get more of a buzz b/c that's what his core fans already admire about him. time will tell

    No, and as much as I like Pusha I think his solo work has been overrated. Neither one of his mixtapes got consistent burn. Yea he makes some good shit, most recently "blocka" and "pain" but lets not act like this shit touching what he did with the clipse....

    nope.... he pigeonholed himself into a niche.....and took too long from his clipse days... his fan base is older and younger fans who buy music dont fuck with him like that.... He gonna have to drop a hell of a single.... maybe 2 with ye and have Jay colab on one to go gold

    Nah and Pusha T is dope
  • MasterALFrankMasterALFrank where is your control? Posts: 9,524 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Nah by the way he keep making songs about coke. That won't get play in the clubs. I'm still gonna give that album a listen

    Depends on how you define blow up. I don't think he'll reach the status of a Kendrick, J. Cole etc, but my suggestion to him would be to follow the lane of a Big Boi, Raekwon etc. Meaning, keeping your core fanbase satisfied following your niche but without being afraid of trying new things, as long as it ain't too far left.

    Don't try to fit in with the current shit in the game cuz you'll disappoint your older fans and won't go too far with the newer fans since you'll sound like one in a million.

    Nah, he has a strong hardcore fan base but, he needs crossover appeal to "blow up".
  • CJCJ Posts: 12,155 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I don't think any one expects him to blow.
