Pusha T On A Joint LP With The-Dream, His Favorite Future Release & Beanie Sigel
On Friday, Pusha T dropped off the prelude to his highly anticipated album, King Push. Although acting as a warm-up album, Darkest Before Dawn is about as dope of an album as any rapper could wish for. Trimmed of any excess fat, Push keeps the album at 10 tracks, with features that compliment his dark style without overpowering him-- except for maybe that Beanie Sigel verse, as we discuss later in our interview. It might even be a better record than his debut, My Name Is My Name (should I be so bold as to say it?).

Well, we weren't expecting this to arrive today, but it's welcome all the same.
