Here are the simple but effective visuals for Pusha T’s hot single “Numbers On the Boards.” I was surprised over the last few weeks to hear some people didn’t care for the beat. This is the type of odd but menacing production that the Neptunes had the Clipse eating off of for years.
Pusha’s debut, My Name Is My Name, is due out July 16.
A solid guest verse from Rick Ross highlights this new track scheduled to be apart of Pusha T’s upcoming solo album Wrath of Caine. Remember about a year and a half ago when most where excited about the prospect of a Pusha T solo album? He hasn’t had that “home run” song as of yet and I wouldn’t be surprised if this song doesn’t make the LP.
Cameos galore highlight this already loaded video from the newly named P.A.P.I. (Noreaga). The clip hits various locations ranging from the clubs to the hard courts. And of course there’s a nice amount of eye candy as well. P.A.P.I.’s Student of the Game album is due out later this year.
Well it seems like the holidays and even a “Sunday morning” can’t quell some good old-fashioned subliminal shots. It’s no secret Lil Wayne and Pusha T have issues going all the way back to 2007. Lately, Pusha has done himself no favors with his flip-flopping regarding the rocks he’s thrown at the Young Money camp. One minute he’s claiming to be speaking to no one directly and in the next breath he admits to the barbs. His verse here makes it pretty clear Wayne is the intended target whether the Virginia emcee confirms it or not.
The beat isn’t anything memorable, but it’s welcome considering it sounded like Luda might have been going full on Flo Rida based on the sound of his first single. Thankfully, that appears to be just one stab at the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) market. No word yet on a set release date for Ludaversal.
LUDACRIS X PUSHA T X SWIZZ BEATZ “TELL ME WHAT THEY MAD FOR”
Pusha T was in Kingston, Jamaica earlier this month to film this video spotlighting that region’s hood and criminal elements. Song isn’t bad, but considering tracks like this have been done much better (Shyne’s “Bad Boys” pops to mind immediately), this isn’t likely to get a lot of burn. Solid album cut if there’s room, though.
Pusha T drops the first offering off what’s scheduled to be his 2013 solo debut. Kanye West is back behind the boards for a brooding yet upbeat track that has traces of that old Clipse-Neptunes sound. Although Future sounds disinterested on the chorus, this is a nice track that will fit in well on the album if they include it.
Not the most empowering celebration of women, but it’s indeed catchy. The Dream takes the most destructive tool in recent urban history and flips it as a ode to the versatility of his woman. These are the types of concepts Pusha made his name on with the Clipse, so you know he’s right at home.
The Dream’s new album, Love IV MMXII, is set to hit stores on August 14.
Today’s Cruel Summer leak is chock full of old school goodness and nods. First is the iconic Honeydrippers drum break, the seminal “Hey!” James Brown vocal sample, and finally topped by a Ghostface loop from “Mighty Healthy”. Godly, indeed. Lyrically, this is one of Ye’s better offerings post- Watch the Throne. Pusha holds down his segments too. Overall, a well-made track even with the Kanye’s one-man boot camp training chant at the end.
