Although Pusha T and Usher have highly successful careers, they have not collaborated on a recording. However, their lively exchange in Paris could be the start of a fruitful collaboration, as they already appear to have mutual admiration and respect for each other.

Usher and Pusha T Engage In A Lively Discussion

As he was at the Wales Bonner Autumn/Winter 2023 show, the “Slow Jam” singer encountered King Push. The encounter between Usher and Push T was a star-studded moment filled with excitement and admiration.

Following a handshake, the fellas exchanged friendly remarks, and Usher concluded by telling the Clipse rapper, “We gonna make it really happen.” In addition, Push T appeared to smile as Usher commented and agreed with what he said.

New Look

Usher must have been feeling adventurous and wanted to try a new look. As you might expect, Instagram haters have been making fun of the R&B legend due to the bright orange hairdo he has been rocking for a couple of months now. However, he has ignored the negative comments and proudly displayed his new appearance. Much attention was paid to Usher, and both kind and critical comments were offered, ranging from praise to some comical, laugh-out-loud comments.

On Jan. 17, Usher experienced a major moment outside the fashion show. His Lovers and Friends Festival announced a stellar lineup, including Missy Elliott, 50 Cent, Chris Brown, Bow Wow, Omarion, Soulja Boy, and more. Nonetheless, Usher and Push are under pressure to produce something hot before the festival in Vegas this coming May!

Pusha T Plans On Working With DJ Drama

As part of Matthew M. Williams’ Fall/Winter 2023 Givenchy show, Push wore a burnt orange outfit with soft shimmering qualities under the lights. His surroundings were dominated by cameras and sunglasses from the collection featuring black shields.

Before congratulating Williams post-show, Pusha T spoke with Complex about how Tyler, The Creator, inspired him to follow up It’s Almost Dry with a DJ Drama Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Last year, the “Diet Coke” rapper revealed that his next project would be a Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama.

“The Gangsta Grillz and the whole mixtape culture and scene is what I’m about. That’s the purest form of hip-hop to me,” Pusha T said. “So, it’s like the fact that Drama is having so much success, the fact that that’s what I love in hip-hop. I want to merge those worlds and see what happens.”

According to Push, Drama’s mixtape with Tyler winning a Grammy surprised him since mixtapes do not usually win awards in this category. “Mixtapes really won a Grammy. So, I’m trying to be a part of that culture as well.”
