    Pusha T paints a vivid picture of the things he knows best throughout My Name Is My Name.

    Pusha T is at the top of his game with sharply defined autobiographical tales and defiant, self-aware verses. He often dazzles with his smooth, cold-blooded flow and connects on virtually every song.
  3. My Name Is My Name is one of the best debut albums of the year, but since Pusha T is far from a new artist, he's got a leg-up on many of the newcomers to the genre.

    The album is an amalgamation of his past trade and his current, and as is fitting for an album from a man whose past is as powdery white as a Colorado winter, it’s dope.

    In My Name Is My Name, Pusha T has produced one of the most diverse and constantly rewarding hip-hop records of the year; twelve tracks tied together by a man at the top of his form and who, quite soon, may yet reach the highest summits.
  6. 75
    The debut solo record from half of the duo the Clipse and member of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music collective is hard and minimal, filled with state-of-the-art beats that pop with bravado.

    When the beats are sparse he shines, but the album bloats in its middle with too many R&B assisted dramatic gestures and not enough dead eyed and cracked crack music. [Nov 2013, p.66]

The two best tracks are: Numbers On The Boards and Nosetalgia. The track I could have done without: Who I Am. I give this album a 10 out of 10. Thanks for reading. Expand

Pusha T really delivers with this one. The dark gritty production really compliments the drug dealing lyrcism and Pusha T's snarling, menacing voice. Standout tracks include: "Numbers on the Board", "Suicide", "S.N.I.T.C.H.". Definitely one of my favorite albums this year Expand

Pusha T really is a pusher because this albums sounds like cocaine on vinyl. Go get it, the only track that is disappointing is "Who I Am" with 2 Chainz & Big Sean and the filler track "No Regrets" with Jeezy.Even Future did ok on this. The production is Amazing. I must say Swizz Beatz, Pharrell & Kanye snapped on this. Definite Highs of the album *no pun intended* are King Push, Sweet Serenade & Suicide. 10/10 for lyrics, 8/10 for feature selection, 10/10 for production. Overall 9/10 Expand
