Last night, Kanye West made a cameo appearance at New York City's Industria Superstudio to preview My Name is My Name, the forthcoming Pusha T album. West serves as the album's executive producer and creative driver and  at one point, went on one of his signature rants. Big business and those co-opting hip-hop culture were his targets. "I don't give a fuck about none of these corporations!" the rapper screamed.

Kanye went on to laud Pusha and the G.O.O.D. Music collective for embracing real music and setting trends. "We make GOOD Music," he said. "We don't give a fuck about how much goddamn money you make! We make good music!"

My Name is My Name is the solo debut by Pusha T (due October 8th) and features the stark single "Numbers on the Boards" and contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, The-Dream and Pharrell Williams. Check out Kanye at the party below.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
