#21. Pusha T, Fear Of God
Released: March 21
Complex says: Fear Of God saw Pusha T showing us how potentially great he could be. His first project since signing with G.O.O.D. Music saw him attacking beats like Jay-Z's "Can I Live" and Lil Wayne's "Money On My Mind," and offering up new songs with Rick Ross, Kanye, and 50 Cent, while spewing his trademark tales about drug dealing and living the high life. It didn't break new ground, but his truthfulness and insight kept things intriguing, which is a testament to the skill that has made him one of hip-hop’s most respected lyricists.
