Rapper and music executive Pusha T is mourning the passing of his father, Gene Elliott Thornton Sr.

Push, whose real name is Terrence Thornton, took to social media on Monday and shared a touching tribute to his father.

He wrote:

I love you Dad…you taught me to remain poised, to always be calculated, to be prideful, and to respect hustle and hard work but to know the difference between the two.

I am who I am because of you and I’ve always been proud to be your son. We are all gonna miss you…

R.I.P. Gene Elliott Thornton Sr. ????????

P.S. We all know what this is abt, kiss my mom for me…❤️

I extend my sincerest condolences.

Please keep Pusha T, his brother No Malice, and their family uplifted in prayer during this difficult time.
