As one half of the rap duo Clipse, Terrence "Pusha T" Thornton has scorched the earth with his relentless lyrical assault. T's succinct delivery of the glamorization of drug-dealer culture and romanticized tales of violence are as addictive as the cocaine he talks about pushing on the streets of his Virginia home. Since signing to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music in 2010, T has been no stranger to the mic, collaborating with West The-Dream, Tyler, the Creator and even beefing with Lil' Wayne. In a genre where artists rap for relevance, Pusha T's twenty years in the game continue to cement him as a lasting force.

What Happened to That Boy: After putting Clipse on hold in 2009, Pusha T has released two official mixtapes in the Fear of God series, leading up to the release of his upcoming debut solo album.
