Pusha T Talks Police Brutality And Finding Himself On The Campaign Trail

‘The next president has to create a team that actually polices the police’

When storied rapper Pusha T stopped by MTV’s “The People’s Playhouse” on his way to Hillary Clinton’s election-night party at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, he admitted he never would’ve imagined himself on the campaign trail as a young artist. “I never saw myself on the presidential campaign trail, but I think it’s a testament to just my growth, my growth as an artist, my growth as a productive member of society,” he said. “The evolution of Pusha T!”

As 2016 has been a year of continued racially tinged police violence and brutality, Pusha offered a potential way forward into the next year, and it involves whoever takes the next oath of office. “The next president has to create a team that actually polices the police,” he said. “That policing needs to happen on an everyday basis, not just when somebody gets shot down.”
