After teasing the song and video on Instagram on Tuesday, Pusha T dropped his Mike Will Made-It collaboration "HGTV."
The video is directed by Young Jake. Using a narrow vertical view, Pusha is sitting in different seats—a school desk, a piece of wood held up by two cement blocks, a high stool, and an office chair. Maybe they represent the stages of Pusha’s life as he evolved from drug dealer to El Presidente of G.O.O.D. Music, but he’s firing off some ill rhymes as we come to expect from him. He calls out the rap game for not having a good enough album as King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, shows his support for Desiigner, and more. Here's a few #bars below:
“Half a year later and still haven’t heard an album greater/The natives want me out of office and back”
“Oh, mama, they question my starting lineup/You only find a diamond from digging like coal miners/Don’t listen to ‘em Desiigner/The same rappers talkin’ next year will be Uber drivers. (Fuck ‘em)”
“It’s too far gone when the realest ain’t real/I walk amongst the clouds, so your ceilings ain’t real/These ni**as call of duty cause they killings ain’t real/With a questionable pen, so the feeling ain’t real”"Rap’s John Grisham, I can paint the picture with the words if you listen/The bars been lowered, the well’s run dry/They beefing over melodies, but no not I”
Pusha T has been keeping fans anticipating his next album, King Push. In 2015, he released a prelude to project called Darkest Before Dawn, which featured big singles like “M.P.A.,” “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets,” and “Keep Dealing.” This year, Pusha delivered the same type of energy on “Drug Dealers Anonymous” with Jay Z, teasing the direction of King Push will have a sinister tone.
