Pharrell, 2 Chainz and more showed their support for Push.
Pusha T‘s family has always been an influential part of his life. Rapping with his brother Malice, now know as No Malice, as the group Clipse in the early 2000s helped to bolster his career as he later went solo.
Now with a wife and kids, family is at peak importance. That is why it was heartbreaking to learn that Pusha T’s mother Mildred Thornton passed away this week. While her age and cause of death is unknown at this time, Pusha posted a tribute to her on Instagram Wednesday: “I love you Ma, thank you for sticking around to meet your grand baby…we all are gonna miss you. R.I.P.”
The post was full of pictures of Mildred with Pusha’s only son, Nigel Brixx Thornton, who is about a year and a half old now. It is clear to see how much she loved the baby, and how much Push cherished his mother’s relationship with his child.
In the comment section of the post, Push’s rapper friends gathered to share their condolences. Most notably, frequent collaborators like Pharrell, 2 Chainz and The-Dream supported him, along with Madeintyo, Rico Beats, his label Def Jam, Swizz Beatz, BJ the Chicago Kid and many more.
Last night (Nov. 11), Pusha T shared a photo of his mother with him, his brother No Malice and Pharrell together. Pusha T definitely took good care of his mom, as he has been grieving her loss for the past couple days.
