Believe it or not, it's been six years since Kanye West dropped his critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, and it has Pusha T feeling a little nostalgic.

To make the album, Ye flew a who's-who list of rappers and producers to Hawaii, King Push being one of them. Last night, Push thanked his beleaguered G.O.O.D music boss for giving him such a huge opportunity.

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

"Six years ago today I was part of one of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever," wrote the Virginia Beach rapper. "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."
Pusha then said that Kanye kept two of his verses, the one he wrote for "Runaway," the album's first single and "So Appalled," where he got to rhyme alongside Jay Z of all people.

"Which put me on a song with you, Hov, Cyhi, Swizz and produced by RZA," he wrote.
Pusha also said the opportunity gave him confidence as a solo artist, since he's been in a group with his older brother No Malice since the beginning of his career.

"Looking back on it, it really was all a set up," he wrote. "You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself."
With West being hospitalized with what is being called temporary psychosis, a kind letter like Pusha's couldn't be any more timely.
