Pusha T Discusses “Runaway” Track

Now that Pusha T is the latest addition to the G.O.O.D. Music Family, he spoke with VIBE on the VMAs and his verse on “Runaway”.

Runaway” seemed to get a lot of love from the crowd. I heard plenty of people bumping the live version the next day, too. When exactly did you and Kanye record that song?
March or April, earlier this year. Whenever I was out in Hawaii… We recorded quite a few songs. He had the record already and was like, ‘Yo, I want you on this record.’ A lot of stuff from him comes from conversation. He’ll talk to you and get a feel for your perspective and your outlook on shit. And later, he’ll be like, ‘Yo, I want you on this. I got a record that that perspective would fit on.’ That’s how he operates.

Did he have his parts already recorded when you heard “Runaway” for the first time?
He had the singing done on the song. I actually wrote my verse for “Runaway” three or four times. Kanye didn’t feel I was douchebag enough for the song on the first couple verses I wrote. [Laughs]
