New York City’s hip-hop tastemakers were all out tonight. The usual album listening party filled with groupies and stranglers didn’t happen for Pusha T. Nah. When it was time for the world to hear My Name Is My Name , the guest list was only for the chosen. Masterminded by DONDA, Def Jam and G.O.O.D. music hosted P’s official listening for his highly anticipated solo album at the Industria Superstudio in NYC. Similar to the YEEZUS event, guests were shuttled into a bare art space with little warning of what was about to happen. We were told Kanye was going to be the host of the evening, but when the first song dropped, Yeezy was still nowhere in sight. But before we could even blink, Ye popped up right behind Pusha T like the holy ghost. And, within minutes KANYE WEST let off one of the wildest rants of his career. Trust, you’ve never seen Mr. West go this hard for his one of his artists. My Name Is My Name drops on Oct. 8.
“That’s why I stand next to this ni**a. I don’t give a f**k about none of these corporations, none of these f**king sellouts, this muthaf**king Pusha T. — Kanye West
Watch the full rant and check out exclusive photos from the party after the jump…
Kanye’s Rant (Transcribed by MissInfo.tv):

Act like y’all ain’t base y’all whole shit, whole lifestyle off this ni**a Pusha T. Everything is Pusha T. Pyrex Vision, that’s Pusha T. Fear of God, that’s Pusha T. This ni**a the heart of the muthaf**king culture for you culture vultures. This the only ni**a spitting that wild muthaf**king hip-hop shit right now, that’s why I stand next to this ni**a. I don’t give a f**k about none of these corporations, none of these f**king sellouts, this muthaf**king Pusha T.
