Pusha T said he'll be a full-time music exec when he's done rapping.

"I feel I'd be better served in the music industry other than rapping. Like a heightened exec role and really putting people on and seeing through the process," he told XXL.

Push — who's the president of Kanye West's label G.O.O.D Music — also explained what draws him to the executive role.

"If you’re dope, you need opportunity. I feel like that's my calling in this," explained Pusha, who was recently challenged by Tory Lanez to a rap battle. "If I can give you an opportunity or shot, then that’s all you need. I can’t promise you anything but if there's something I hear that I like, and I can provide a platform for them, by all means come on board."

As far as the type of advice Pusha gives up and coming artists, he tells them to focus on their presentation.

"Because of SoundCloud, they don’t really listen to anybody because they don’t have to," he explained. "I just try to present them a better way of packaging it. Everybody wants to be a star. The presentation can help them get further and get in front of the execs and corporate sponsors."

At what age do you think a rapper should put down the microphone and move on to other things?
