Yay or Nay? This new Pusha T/Jay-Z Song

I’m not tuned in to these streets like I once was, guys. I used to have my fingers on the pulse of what was cool and what wasn’t in rap music. Granted, that was well over a decade ago , but still…I’ve been there!
While rappers named stuff like Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert exist, I certainly don’t know what they do or what they sound like (I could guess and probably be right, though). For me, the last time I had a handle on mainstream rap, guys like Jay-Z and Pusha-T were very relevant. Now, in 2016, I can’t say with 100% confidence where either of these rappers stand with rap rans under the age of 35. I liked Pusha’s last album. It had some joints. I haven’t checked for Jay with any real curiosity since, I dunno…”Roc Boys” came out. So, to see them on a song together currently is more confusing than anything. Like, is it good? It could be. Will the kids like it? Who fucking knows? So, today’s column is a check in on all that.
I present to you the new Pusha-T/Jay-Z song. Unfortunately , it’s only streaming on Tidal so I can’t embed it here. But , you can peep it in this link.

Side note, releasing stuff on just Tidal and Apple music…I get why people do it but…goddamn…making music like an exclusive country club is just the worst. Especially if you’re a miser, like I apparently am. But,i digress…
What do you think of this song? Here’s a little poll. There is a wide variety of choices so feel free to vote for more than one option. It’s a free country guys.

  1. these days it’s seems like music is overly accessible which leads to it becoming more easily disposable, and less “special” – I think the future is in exclusivity. I think a label like Rhymsayers could pull all their shit down and create their own exclusive stream service and get artists paid WAY more. Based on some things they’ve done, i think guys like RZA and DOOM understand this.

  2. As the poet Daniel Brown once said:
    “I’m sick of all these niggas with their ten year old stories
    You ain’t doing that no more, nigga lying to the shorty”

    That being said, I miss Clipse.

  3. ah man….jay and pusha were so great in their heyday.
    pusha completely fell off after Hell Hath No Fury
    jay, after black album (he had a few joints here and there tho)

  4. I feel like Jay-Z should, like, ONLY do drug raps. Like you said, I haven’t peeped Jay since Roc Boys, and American Gangster was actually a damn good album. I don’t give a shit if he hasn’t sold drugs since the 90s, drug rap is what the man does best.
