We're inching closer to the release of Pusha T's long-awaited new album, King Push, but it will only arrive if Kanye stops scrapping it and redoing it.

On Sunday (September 3), during his performance at JAY-Z's Made in American Festival in Philadelphia, the president of G.O.O.D Music updated fans on the status of the follow-up to 2015's King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude.

"I done did this album like three times. [Kanye] will come in, he'll pick all the beats and shit, and then he'll hear the beats, and he scrap 'em and say, 'I can do better,'" said Pusha, adding, "These past two months, we've just been locking in—day for day, night for night—getting this album perfect for y'all."
