Any updates on your new album, King Push?

I am feverishly -- I love that word so much these days. I am feverishly trying to finish King Push, and get some music out this month. It's a real easy thing -- just a couple different pieces that I feel like need to be in place.

When you make albums like I do, and it's based off fanfare and based off touring -- I make these albums and I get on the road. It's not really a radio-driven thing. I get on the road and I see my fans and I touch each and every last one of them. I do that for however long it takes. Then we start the process all over again, making music. So sometimes there's lag time.

Who are some of the producers you're working with?

Timbaland, Kanye West, Pharrell, The-Dream, Sean Combs...and someone from my hometown who I've never, ever worked with before.

What was your initial reaction when you saw that N.W.A named you as one of their favorite MCs today?

It blew my mind, actually. I haven't had any interaction with Dre, or Ren, ever. It's ironic because I was super hyped when Dr. Dre's Beats 1 [show] promo was [Pusha T song] "Numbers On The Board." I was like, "Aw, Dre probably got some kid [to do the promo] -- how else would Dr. Dre know about Pusha T?"

He's such a huge figure, but to me, as far as my reach goes, he's like a myth. You hear about him, you never see him -- only on magazine covers. When something grandiose happens in the worlds of business or music, his name pops up. As far as me being a rapper, it just doesn't happen, man. I was completely taken aback.

It was just great on both ends for me, in regards to Dre and Ren saying what they said about me. It's like the ultimate -- ultimate rap reward.

I wanted to be Ren for that movie, actually.

Why would you want to play Ren, over the other members of N.W.A?

To me, Ren and N.W.A -- I believe Ren wanted to fight me. That was what he gave off. His verses, his demeanor. His demeanor was like, "Yo, Imma hurt you, and I'm not playing any games." It wasn't over-the-top loud. It was just one of a person who, I felt like, didn't play any games. I felt like I could've done that.
