The last time Pusha-T dropped a full-length project, Complex named him the Best Rapper Alive, and ranked it as the No. 1 album of the year.

How do you top that? Well, Push believes he has. Last month, he told us that his follow-up, It’s Almost Dry, is even better than 2018’s DAYTONA. “It’s more well-rounded,” he argued. “It’s more colorful. I think DAYTONA was solid. It’s that thing, and I gave you that thing. I feel like this one is more well-rounded, with the same amount of greatness, but the bars are better and I push myself as a songwriter.”

So, was it all talk? Or was Push telling the truth and this album really is better than DAYTONA? Members of the Complex Music team—Andre Gee, Jessica McKinney, and Jordan Rose—shared their first impressions after giving this thing a few spins.
