The very first preview of Pusha’s solo album is released to iTunes this week, and cot dayum it’s heavy. Every single line of the four-minute track is coke laced, drug dealer brilliance. Heavy as fuck simplistic rhythms, a sparse but sinister bass line juxtaposing uplifting piano chords all while Pusha drops gems.
Pyrex on the platter like hot sex But my tribe dont quest like love Pain in this bitch, with the mask and the glove And a team of lawyers to run the train on the judge
“And a team of lawyers to run the train on the judge” is evil as fuck. Without a doubt the hardest line this year. Jesus…
“Produced by Kanye West, written by Pusha” is a phrase now synonymous with “good music”. How on Earth they’ll manage to follow a single of this strength with a full album later this year, I’ll never know. I remain cautiously optimistic though.
Go and download it now. Seriously.
