When Runaway dropped and I realized Pusha T was the newest signee to Mr. West’s G.O.O.D. Music label, the first thing I thought (after, why didn’t ‘Ye just sign Malice too?), was that this was a big move in the right direction for one of the game’s top lyricists. With every new guest verse and the recently leaked My God Pusha had us all salivating for his next body of work, and with this new record Raid, he’s continuing to build hype around his forthcoming mixtape, Fear of God, scheduled to drop March 21. On Raid the Clipse alum lyrically reminisces on how his days of slangin’ in VA have ultimately turned into a dream life, while G-Unit boss 50 Cent jumps on board to spit on how the only thing that’s changed about him is the money. On the production tip the piano-driven Neptunes track harkens back to the Lord Willin’ days, as does Pharrell’s hook of “ferocious AK’s” that are “sprayin’ on you roaches.” Ultimately it’s more than enough to have me amped for Push’s mixtape and eventual album - are you feeling it too?
