The 44-year-old rapper’s album is expected to be #1 on the charts.
When speaking on the motivation behind the title, Pusha told Rolling Stone, “I’m always creating a masterpiece and in the creation of that in terms of a painting… And you have to wait on masterpieces. Also in drug culture, a lot of times you’ll have people waiting on the product and it’s not dry yet. You can come get it when it’s dry.”

The album was composed by two of the music industry’s most prominent producers, Kanye West and Pharrell. While on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,Pusha T compares the two musicians and explains what impact they had on the process.
The rapper told Fallon, “Ye is just a Pusha T rap fanatic. He just wants me to rap all day long, and then he just wants to take them from me and edit them and do what he wants to do with it, right?” On the other hand, he claims Pharrell is more of a composer, stating, “He wants to make sure that every verse, every hook, every cadence, every flow, everything – he likes to call them ‘sticky moments’ – and just stays with you the whole time, throughout the whole song.”
The tour for It’s Almost Dry will begin in May and is set for 12 dates.
