For this episode of Hellafine Fridays, in anticipation for Pusha T’s long overdue G.O.O.D. Music debut, “My Name Is My Name”, I did a pre-album mixtape, in the tradition of my other tapes like “The Arrival Of Kendrick Lamar” and “Freedom Of Information” w/ Talib Kweli. Focusing on the mixing rather than exclusives, this mix collects some of Push’s best freestyles, guest appearances, b-sides, blog bangers, and a few surprises along the way.

The cover art reveals some hidden gems. The mix is called “My Crown Weighs A Ton” for two reasons 1) he refers to himself as “King Push” and 2) the “T” in Pusha T stands for Ton. The title is also an homage to both Public Enemy’s “My Uzi Weighs A Ton”, and mirrors the syllabic cadence of his album title, “My Name Is My Name”. The UPC album cover for “My Name Is My Name” is also integrated into the cover art, with the image inverted on Pusha’s t-shirt.

“My Crown Weighs A Ton” is fully mixed and blended by DJ Pizzo. When’s the last time you heard it like this?
