Pusha T proves his worth in the shrines of the Rap Game Hall of Fame on My Name Is My Name, with slick wordplay and surreal depictions of his drug-dealing past.

90
AllMusic

With Pusha's pen at full force and his performance a proper combination of cold and tense, the album is as if Clipse's Hell Hath No Fury were atom-smashed into something more artful and unstable. My Name Is My Name is a remarkable and vital solo debut.

83
Pretty Much Amazing

My Name Is My Name is as strong a “debut” full length as anyone could hope to produce, and reminds the world why it fell in love with this coke-rap wizard more than ten years ago.

80
Consequence of Sound

While not the defining statement it could’ve been, My Name Is My Name shows different sides of Pusha T as he becomes a more multidimensional rapper.

80
Pitchfork

Pusha’s released a fair amount of music since joining Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music army three years ago, but My Name Is My Name is really the first release that delivers on the excitement initially engendered by the pairing.

80
The Line of Best Fit

In My Name Is My Name, Pusha T has produced one of the most diverse and constantly rewarding hip-hop records of the year; twelve tracks tied together by a man at the top of his form and who, quite soon, may yet reach the highest summits.

70
Spin

Kanye and all the production cosigns he can bring to this thing make this record too ambitious to fail; Pusha T, forever an outlier even when he had clubby crack-rap hits, has finally made a solo project that isn't totally beneath him, even if parts of it still are.

70
FACT Magazine

On My Name Is My Name, Pusha doesn’t really give much away about his past, present or future, and it’s a disconcerting thought for an album posited as a vanguard for a more “real” presentation of rap.

70
HipHopDX

With an accumulation of gritty street tracks, Pusha T delivers “unpolished” and “unapologetic” lyrics, but frankly, it does not live up to the hype.

mostly coke lyrics matched with above average production. rick ross' verse went hard on hold on, as did pusha in verse 1 of suicide. pretty average, but very enjoyable
fav tracks: king push, hold on, pain

A deep cut that those who appreciate good rap will relish.
