Pusha T's Wrath Of Caine is a progressive step for an artist still looking to establish himself as a bona fide solo act. It features a balanced sound, with production from an all-star including Kanye West, The Neptunes, Jake One, Harry Fraud, B!nk, and Young Chop. Through the diverse range of beats, Pusha is able to channel a full-range of emotions. On "Millions" he's boastful, on "Revolution" he's pensive, on "Only You Can Tell It," he's low-key disrespectful as only he can be ("I'm grinding nigga/You're J-Kwon.") Perhaps most importantly, Wrath Of Caine opened the door for a young Kevin Gates to generate some buzz for himself. The Baton Rouge native has not looked back since. —Dharmic X
