While other rappers and celebrities were offering “get well soon” messages to Kanye West after his hospitalization Monday night, Pusha T was remembering the good times. “Six years ago today I was a part of one of the greatest hip hop albums ever,” Pusha T wrote on Instagram, referring to the release of West’s chart-topping Grammy-winning album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010). The album, which was recorded in Hawaii, featured several songs with Pusha T and other megastars, including Bon Iver, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Nicki Minaj and John Legend.

6 yrs ago today I was apart of one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. You invited me to Hawaii and said “pick whatever tracks you love and write to all of them.” I got greedy, I stopped going to play basketball with you every morning and proceeded to write to 8 songs on your album. U kept me on 2, “Runaway” which was your platinum single, and “So Appalled” which put me on a song with you, Hov, Cyhi, Swizz, and produced by Rza. Thinking back on it, it really was all a set up. You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as. So on the 6th anniversary of MBDTF and as the President of your label G.O.O.D. music I wanna say thanx for the endless opportunities you have brought to me. P.S. I think it’s time we all head back to Hawaii @kanyewest ::whenever you ready:: #GOOD
