CRITIC REVIEWS

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.

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.

Absolutely terrible production with one of the most overrated and uninteresting rappers to gain as much respect as he has of the last 20 years. Seriously, what do you people see in this album? or this rapper in general? I’d take Denzel curry over him honestly…

Could use more interesting production choices. Or just more interesting production in general

Something about Pusha-T that surprise me is that there's nothing extraordinary about his subject matter, yet we all know nobody else could successfully emulate his career by rapping about the same thing over and over again. A mastermind that turned what could be a weakness for many rappers in an armor.
His debut album, My Name Is My Name, is unfortunately the discarded bastard brother of Yeezus, a messy pile composed by more weaknesses than strengths.

I don’t know what to say. I didn’t really enjoy a lot of the production except for three tracks. Pusha T did great but a lot of the production I didn’t like that much. Some of the features weren’t that good besides Pharrell and K Dot. Overall this is a solid solo debut. But it just didn’t click with me entirely sadly...
