Pusha-T announced that he was having a baby back in December, when he freestyled about it over Kanye West‘s Jesus Is King track, ”Follow God.”

On the track he rapped:

“Life goes on and babies born, and mines on the way couldn’t wait to say it in song.”

Pusha-T and Virginia have been married since 2018. The two eloped at a private ceremony on July 21st, 2018 at the Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. In attendance were a number of famous faces, from Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian to singer Trey Songz to influencer Karen Civil.

Pharell, who produced a majority of the early Clipse songs, was the rapper’s best man. While Pusha’s older brother and Clipse partner, No Malice (formerly Malice) officiated the wedding.

Pusha-T hasn’t released a new album since Daytona in 2018. But, during a recent Discord session a couple of months ago, Pusha said he was working “on three projects right now.”

One of those projects is said to be one with Madlib, saying “We’re cooking…That’s really all I can really say about it…you know, with me and producers, to me it’s like I’m going to school. So he’s just like another teacher to me.”
