Pusha T said that his childhood was not a good part of his life and that his parents were struggling for money and for the survival.

However, in these days Terrence was just a boy who loved his town and who dreamed about being a basketball player and he was happy with his dreams.

On the other side, his parents were in very difficult situation, they did not have good jobs and they couldn’t help their children. His mother did part time jobs, sometimes she would clean other people houses, and sometimes she was working in local coffee shop, sometimes she worked in a fast food restaurant. In other word, his mother did any kind of jobs, just to save money for her children.

His father was in same situation and Terrence remembers that sometimes he would change two or three jobs in week. He was a laborer, so he often worked outside of the city and his children did not have a chance to see him often. Terrence was a child in this age and he did not notice how much his parents were scarifying and how difficult they were living. He describes his childhood in Bronx through two main hobbies.

Terrence was in love with basketball and music. He has notice his talent for music, since he was little, but he was not thrilled with this talent and he never dreamed that he can make successful career in this field.

His biggest love was basketball, he loved this sport, and he played in school team. Terrence dreamed that his future will be in basketball, he dreamed about becoming a basketball player.

When Terrence was 11 years old, his parents made a decision to go to other city in USA, his parent were thinking a lot about this decision, and they thought that this decision will help them to start a new, better life. However, for Terrence this decision was a nightmare, he didn’t want to move to completely new city, and he did not believe that this will help them to start a new life.

Despite his beliefs, after couple of months he and his family moved to Salt Lake City. First two years in this city where very difficult for his family, they didn’t know people in this city, so Terrence didn’t’ spent much time outside of house.  His parents managed to find jobs, his mother worked in Tai restaurant, while his father kept his previous job, but this time he earned more money, and he spent much more time with his family.

However, his father was not satisfied, he expected better job and he was very disappointed how people treated them because they were not in good financial situation. Terrence also admitted that some kids did not want to hang out with him, so he often felt like an outsider.

After three years, his father wanted to go back in New York City, he did not want to continue his life in Salt Lake City, but his family did not want to move again. His mother made a decision to stay with kids, in that time she started to work another job.
