Let the Pusha-T album rollout begin.
Two weeks ago, he jumped on a call with Complex and warned us that “the album of the motherfucking year is coming.”
Giving an update on what’s going on in his world right now, he continued, “This era of Push is probably the most relaxed and competitive. I take the game so lightly, because now I know I’m so different. I know nobody is touching me on the street rap tip. It’s just not happening. I just want them to understand my foundation, and when it comes to my foundation, ain’t nobody fucking with me on that. You ain’t see me do nothing for the last two years, except hold my child and build homes. I just wanted the world to see my son. He’s so beautiful. I just wanted to drill that into the world for 19 good months, now it’s time to go.”
Now, the lead single to his next album has arrived: “Diet Coke.” Over production from 88-Keys and Kanye West, Push sounds as confident as he’s ever been, rattling off bars like, “As far as I’m concerned, who’s the best? Me and Yezos.”
So, what’s the verdict? Does it live up to the hype? What’s the best thing about the song? Worst thing? Biggest surprise? Members of the Complex Music team—Eric Skelton, Andre Gee, Jessica McKinney—answered those questions and more. Here are our first impressions of Pusha-T’s new song “Diet Coke.”
