NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL held on Zrce Beach has just announced their latest headliner PUSHA T, from Kanye West’s own record label G.O.O.D. Music.
After announcing their first headliner, the legendary duo of Method Man and Redman, NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL decides to take their line-up up a notch with the addition of PUSHA T. Hailing from Kanye West’s camp, the third edition of Europe’s first hip-hop festival on the beach will host one of the hottest names in hip-hop today, an artist who Pharrell Williams has been heavily involved with since assisting in the negotiation of his first contract. Also known as one half of the Clipse, Terrence Thorton, better known as Pusha T, and his brother Gene Thorton, are held in high regard by hip-hop fans everywhere for the deep mark they’ve left with their music. Younger audiences can thank Kanye West, who stands as the Executive Producer behind Terrence’s latest releases, as the root of his new-wave sound. His latest album „My Name is My Name“ included guest appearnaces by many of his heavyweight peers, including: Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, The Neptunes, Pharrell Williams, Rick Ross, Kanye West and more.
Performers at NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL will join an already announced Method Man and Redman, with organizers reporting that this is just a warm-up for their upcoming annoucements, which will lead up to the unveiling of their main star at the end of March.
