Charts Don't Lie: December 30th
Charts Don't Lie: December 30th Dec 30, 2015 at 01:39pm
Christmas is always a big week for album sales, and we saw a few releases dropping December 18th, just in time for last minute gifts. Chris Brown's Royalty certainly seemed to benefit from the strategy, coming in with a big week, despite not earning the usual smash single that precedes Brown's albums. Pusha T's prelude album Darkest Before Dawn was a little lower down at 20, but seeing as its just a warm-up for the GOOD Music president's proper album, King Push, it's not too bad of a placement.

Things were just beginning to slow down, as we had spent enough time arguing over the year's best music with a series of year-end lists and were ready to start thinking about what's in store for 2016. As we approached the holidays, though, some of our favorite artists were feeling particularly generous and gifted us with a wealth of new material.

The first-week sales numbers for Chris Brown's Royalty are in, and though Breezy's seventh album performed even better than was expected -- selling 184,000 units -- it did not top the charts. In fact, for the week ending Dec. 24, Royalty made its debut at No. 3, behind Justin Bieber's Purpose, released on Nov.
Quiz: How Well Do You Know Pusha T?
Quiz: How Well Do You Know Pusha T? Dec 24, 2015 at 12:12pm
Pusha T has been in the game for quite some time, and he's basically had two lives as a rapper; first with his brother (No) Malice as part of the highly rated yet underground duo Clipse, and then, in present day, a second spurt as a solo artist under the G.O.O.D. Music umbrella. It's rare to keep both longevity and relevancy as a rapper, and so he's obviously doing something right, whether it's menacing bars or atypical production.

Sometimes, first reactions are wildly off the mark, and that was the case with me upon hearing the first few leaks from Pusha T's Darkest Before Dawn. Regardless of the production or other lyrics on "Untouchable" and "M.F.T.R.," I couldn't shake the fact that Pusha Ton was still rapping about cocaine.

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?).

The release of Pusha T's Darkest Before Dawn was especially dramatic as it arrived with an accompanying short film. Those who made it through to the final credits of the 22-minute video would've heard a brand new song that didn't appear on Darkest Before Dawn. That song features Pharrell, and audio of the nearly 2-minute snippet is now available. Listen below.

Pusha T has been a trending topic over the past months for a number of reasons. He was recently named G.O.O.D. Music's president, and with the release of his sophomore solo album coming tomorrow, he's been trickling out new material that has been pure flame emojis. Of course, Pusha is hardly a newcomer to this rap thing. In fact, the Virginia-native has been doin' his thing for over two decades now, whether it's with his brother as Clipse or with his homies under the G.O.O.D. Music umbrella.

Well, we weren't expecting this to arrive today, but it's welcome all the same. Pusha T's new album, King Push: Darkest Before Dawn is dropping tomorrow on iTunes, but Spotify has released the complete stream a day early, perhaps a wise move to stand-out from all the album streams that will arrive tomorrow.
Pusha T To Ebro: Rae Sremmurd Is "Really My Favorite Group"
Pusha T To Ebro: Rae Sremmurd Is "Really My Favorite Group" Dec 16, 2015 at 07:55pm
Pusha T is a pretty prime example of the kind of rap traditionalists tend to praise, so it was pretty cool to see the GOOD Music president come through to defend Rae Sremmurd on HOT 97 today. Push wasn't afraid to challenge Ebro Darden's previous comments regarding the Sremm Bros and what he deemed an undeserved #3 spot on Complex's year-end list. "I don't know man, I sort of feel like you took their ranking a bit too personal," he said, going on to call the duo his "favorite group".

Pusha T will be dropping his King Push prelude album Darkest Before Dawn in a few days, and while it's still being billed as the album before the album, it will earn its own tour. Push has announced a run of North American tour dates (that's right, Canada gets some love too!) that will kick off in March 2016. The 22-date tour will kick off in Vancouver, before hitting L.A., Houston, Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago, and more.

We're quickly approaching the holidays, which means the year-end lists are in full effect. While many of us are looking back at the abundance of great music that's dropped over the past 50 weeks, some of our favorite rappers are showing no signs of showing down.

Pusha T is getting ready to release his new album next Friday called Darkest Before Dawn, which will serve as a prequel to his upcoming King Push album arriving in 2016. Tonight, the G.O.O.D.

Pusha T Calls Birdman "The Lowest Form Of A Thief" Dec 10, 2015 at 05:09pm
For much of the year, the biggest names in rap chose to stay quiet on the unfolding drama between Lil Wayne and Birdman. Last week, Rick Ross revealed his discontent at the way Birdman has been treating Weezy on The Breakfast Club, and now Pusha T has confirmed that he, too, doesn't respect the Cash Money boss.

In 2003, twin brothers Taiwo and Kehinde Hassan, now known as the production duo Christian Rich, got their first placement on a Lil Kim record. That was when they were both Speech Communication majors at the University of Illinois in Champaign, a couple of hours south of their native Chicago. That same year, they gave beats to Clipse and Foxy Brown.

Pusha T was the latest guest on Pitchfork's Over/Under series, and he has definitely set the record for the most times the word "GOAT" was uttered in the segment.There were three subjects that the GOOD Music president got particularly excited about, all of which he deemed GOATS, and highly underrated ones at that.1.
