• New Music: Pusha T – “Lunch Money” (Prod. Kanye West)

    pusha-t-lunch-money

    Pusha season approaching! After dropping his stellar debut full length My Name Is My Name, Virginia’s number one dope boy spitter Pusha Ton begins rolling out his King Push campaign. And today we are grateful to receive “Lunch Money”, a bombastic and downright straight outta left-field (even more so than last year’s insane “Numbers on the Board”? Maybe) cut produced by the always unpredictable Kanye West. While Pusha does his thing, spitting hot fire it’s truly Yeezus’ production that stands out as the reason you’ll be listening to this one. ‘Ye’s beat here is equipped with unorthodox, disorienting sounds, but all those outrageous nuances are built around a very funky pulse. Listen after the jump.

So, we suppose it’s only natural that Luda continues his recent streak by going off on another ‘throwback’ track. This time he’s spitting bars over Pusha T’s clicky-clanky industrial “Numbers on the Board” beat from his excellent My Name Is My Name album. Listen after the jump.

    The Clipse have always been one of those groups that came out of nowhere and was able to maintain a cult following while flirting with commercial success. They could be spitting the dirtiest drug-dealer raps but thanks to a couple funky basslines from The Neptunes, their sound goes further. Kanye noticed, and for the last couple of years, Pusha T’s been working OT to be who he is but to do it by himself. (more…)
