Pusha T’s music — a depiction of life as a former drug dealer — has been political in nature for decades. But the rapper says he’s ready to take his activism and outspokenness to a more formal platform.

Speaking to Business Insider recently at the Trump Hotel in SoHo, New York City, Pusha T (real name: Terrence Thornton) ruminated on the progression of his career, from his beginning as a quotable upstart rapper to his current role as hip-hop elder statesman who has become increasingly comfortable with speaking his mind about hot-button political issues.
