Pusha T returns to sprinkle more snow over this winter season. The aptly titled “Diet Coke” finds Kanye in the visual hypeman role for Pusha in a minimalist background that reflects the sparse production. That doesn’t mean that looped piano melody and Fat joe vocal sample don’t work — a prolonged chorus effectively sets the tone (“Imaginary players ain’t been coached right/ Master recipes under stove lights/ The number on this jersey is the quote price/ You ordered Diet Coke, that’s a joke, right?“) and the final verse showcases vintage Pusha bars.
… Extendos will make plenty noise
Crescendo make your car endo
Pierce your car window
Missy was our only misdemeanor
Nike box hold a hundred thou’ with no insoles, uh
The crack era was such a Black era
How many still standin’ reflectin’ in that mirror?
