"I wanna say thanx for the endless opportunities you have brought to me."

Pusha T celebrated the six-year anniversary of Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with a heartfelt note on Instagram reminiscing over the seminal hip-hop album's creation. 

"6 yrs ago today I was apart of one of the greatest hip hop albums ever," Pusha T wrote. "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." 

Aside standing out as a masterpiece of West's oeuvre, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy helped launch careers of its featured artists such as Nicki Minaj with her guest verse on "Monster" and Pusha T, who proved he could be a star without his brother and Clipse bandmate No Malice. Five years later, Pusha T was named president of West's record label GOOD Music. 

"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."

Pusha T ended with a suggestion they do it all again sometime, saying "I think it's time we all head back to Hawaii ... whenever you ready" -- a fitting invite given West could probably use some therapeutic rest and relaxation after he was hospitalized in Los Angeles Monday due to exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

I think it's time we all head back to Hawaii @kanyewest ::whenever you ready:: #GOOD
