Pusha T cuts ties with GOOD Music label over anti-Semitic comments from Kanye West

Pusha T has severed ties with Kanye West’s GOOD Music and confirmed he is no longer president of the label.

The rapper says he’s distanced himself from longtime friend and collaborator West following his recent anti-Semitic comments.

After not opening up about their views over the phone, the two haven’t spoken to each other, Pusha revealed in a cover interview with XXL.

“He’s not talking to me now. If you’re not there, you’re not down. And I’m not in. I won’t go into that. I’m not in it,” Pusha said during the interview.

In early December, West, who had already been dumped by the likes of Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga, said “I like Hitler” on the InfoWars podcast.

While host Alex Jones interviewed Kanye and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, West repeatedly praised the Nazi leader.

Pusha apparently believes his former boyfriend’s recent behavior indicates a mental illness.

“I heard about this new stuff [comments on InfoWars]. I do not know. It’s something that somehow tells me at the same time that he’s not okay. I’ll say that,” he said.

“It’s going to go places where there’s no way to move around it,” he added.

Pusha said West’s comments affected him, calling “sh** that’s said” “more than disappointing” at the moment.

Elsewhere in the interview, the rapper confirmed he’s no longer associated with GOOD Music, but said he still has a “50/50 venture with Def Jam.”

Pusha went on to recall the last time he and West spoke on the phone while Pusha was on tour.

“I was just expressing myself. I express myself to him a lot. He expressed his thoughts to me. And he hung up and said, “Thank you. I know you don’t agree with me, but you never kill me in public. And some people can’t wait to do that,” he recalled.

“We started working together in 2010, so my relationship with him on the filter has never been like everyone else’s. I never had a filter on him,” he said.

“I’ve always spoken my mind. People need to remember too. It’s not new to me when it comes to disagreeing with him politically and things like that,” he added.

Pusha went on to admit West’s comments had influenced him, calling “sh** that’s said” “more than disappointing” at the moment.

“It’s wrong. Period. But for me it’s just me and him who have a disagreement once again. Because we’ve had this for years,” Pusha said.

When asked about the rapper’s tendency to disagree, Pusha recounted XXL: “He knows that I will do whatever I have to and want to do.

“In terms of anything that jeopardizes my looks, my pride, everything. He knows it. He knows he can’t get me off any ledges. He just can’t do it,” he added.
