Kanye West’s newly appointed president of his GOOD Music record label, Pusha T, is something of a known figure in the American rap genre. He was once a part of the famous hip-hop duo Clipse, along with his brother Gene “No Malice” Thornton but later started his solo career and signed with GOOD Music. He obviously did well since he gained the trust of one of the most important rappers today, Kanye. Whether he planned it or not, Pusha T will also be remembered for a couple of controversies as well as his feud with Lil Wayne over who knows what. Let’s see what his Instagram pictures have to say.

Pusha T’s Reassurance

One of the reasons why Pusha T is such a famous and influential rappers nowadays is because he knows how to communicate with his audience. For example, in this amazingly honest picture, we see that he isn’t afraid to tell the audience what to think of his music. As he’s rapping, a huge sign behind him states that that is, in fact, “good music” they’re listening to. You can see by the look in his eyes that he’s carefully trying to figure out which audience members are true fans (some might say trill).

A Distraction

Pusha T is also something of a pioneer when it comes to getting out of bad first dates. While most people simply fake a phone call or come up with some normal excuses for leaving, Pusha goes one step further. He simply chats the girl up and, when she leans in for a kiss, he plants a tennis racket in his place. This time, he decided to take a picture of the event and immortalize his technique for all the future generations to see. What do you think about it?

Sibling Rivalry

There’s nothing worse than being the youngest child in the family. This is the point that Pusha T was trying to make with this Instagram photo of him and his two big brothers. He is obviously uncomfortable and a bit afraid, but there’s nothing he can do about it. They even made him wear that silly shirt with red lips and a cigar on it. This just goes to show that no matter how old you are, sibling rivalry never stops.

One of Pusha T’s favorite pastimes is certainly cosplay. Although he hates to admit it publicly, he is something of a pro when it comes to this art form. What does he cosplay as? Well, considering how he’s something of a unique artist, he also likes his costumes to be unique. That is why he sometimes pretends to be other rappers. In the photo above, he’s trying to portray Jay Z. He’s quite good, isn’t he?

Rock, Paper, Pusha

Besides cosplay, Pusha T is extremely passionate about that good old game – rock, paper, scissors. The only problem is that he is quite bad at it. He always goes for the scissors as this photo clearly suggests, so his friends don’t even bother playing. That doesn’t stop Pusha from “pushing” others into playing the game whenever he wants. Even when he is at a party, enjoying a couple of drinks with his friends, he simply can’t help it.

A Knit Hat

Pusha T is, above all, a family man and simply can’t say no. So, when his 100-year-old grandma knit him this trippy hat, he had to wear it everywhere, despite the fact that he didn’t really like it. You can see just how sad he is in this photo but still doesn’t take it off. Pusha T is a true player who respects his family and will never disappoint.

Now that you know everything there is to know about Pusha T, you can go ahead and listen to some of his songs. They’re quite good, actually.
