Today we wish a Happy Birthday to Terrence "Pusha T" Thornton. As one-half of the Virginia Beach, VA sibling rap duo Clipse (along with Gene "No Malice" Thornton) backed by cutting-edge production from the Neptunes, he was part of the ‘00s wave of rappers who moved the genre from the ‘90s gangsta rhymes of Snoop Dogg and 2Pac to the ‘10s impressionist realism of Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples. Issues with various labels and beefs with other rappers led the brothers to part ways in 2014, but they have since hinted that a reunion may happen sometime in the future. In the meantime, T’s got a full plate both as a solo artist and president of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label.
