Music Review | Pusha T: King Push-Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude

King Push it back! Almost two years after his debut studio album, Pusha T delivers once again with this new album. Not really one for radio singles, the album features lyrics that are pretty mean, but pack a pretty deep meaning at the same time. The song “M.F.T.R.” (my personal favourite off the album) is a beautiful fusion of gun metaphors and Biblical allusions that send warning shots scary enough to make whoever he’s dissing shit their pants. Pusha has always been known for his clever wordplay, and this album is no different. Hailing from the school of Kanye producing, the instrumentals on this track are some of the best I’ve heard in hip hop all last year, with an excellent use of bass lines and hi hats. Until Kanye himself releases later next month, KPDBD is a fantastic way to kick off the hip hop calendar.
