Pusha T drops Kanye West-produced 'Lunch Money'

Posted on

Pusha T

It’s a testament to Pusha T’s magnetism that he can rap about exactly one topic and still get people going crazy every time he drops a track. He just unveiled his latest, the Kanye West-produced “Lunch Money,” and like every single other King Push song ever, it’s about the craziness of being a former cocaine dealer turned international rap superstar, and like an almost unbelievably large percentage of them, it’s completely bananas and worth rewinding at least two or three times on the first spin.

West’s beat hints at where he’s headed post-Yeezus, trading in the impenetrably dark industrial minimalism he’s been on for burbling prog rock synthesizers and funky stomping drums. The track hit the Internets without any explanation about whether or not it’s part of a new release, but if Pusha’s got a sequel to My Name Is My Name up his sleeve, fans of clanging beats and a seemingly limitless series of cocaine metaphors could have reason to celebrate.
