Pusha T Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Desiigner
Yesterday, Pusha T released a remorseless attack on the rap game called "H.G.T.V." This morning, Def Jam sent out the MP3 file of "Circles" to various media outlets, to Pusha's chagrin. Pusha teased "Circles" couple months ago, and it's unclear exactly what the release strategy is here, but in any case, the song has now hit the digital streets.
The rap landscape is a wasteland in the eyes of Pusha T. On his new release "H.G.T.V." he remorselessly castigates his contemporaries, most notably Drake -- "Too far gone when the realest ain't real" -- as Mike WiLL Made-It's minimalist 808 and snare groove brings his voice to the fore. He encourages his flock to ignore the haters ("Don't listen to 'em, Desiigner!") and declares himself "rap's John Grisham" and later "Blobama," asserting his place as coke rap's el presidente.
Zeds Dead Feat. Pusha T & Rivers Cuomo
Zeds Dead are not usually a group you'll see on the HNHH homepage because, strictly speaking, they're an electronic duo. However they've been experimenting with other genres, and they continue to vy for various genre crossovers with their upcoming album titled Northern Lights.

Destructo & Wax Motif Feat. Pusha T & Starrah
Veteran electronic music producer Destructo has dipped his toes frequent into the rap game over the course of the last couple years, most notably his "Party Up" collab with YG and "4Real" feat. Ty Dolla $ign and iLoveMakonnen. Conversely, Pusha T has made major inroads into the EDM game.
Pusha T & Jeremih
As if the trailer for Nas new movie "The Land" didn't look sufficiently lit, the soundtrack might be even better. A star-studded 14-track affair, the OST features Kanye West, Erykah Badu, French Montana, Machine Gun Kelly, Nas, & a host of others.
Boyz In The Hood
DJ Drama Feat. Meek Mill, Pusha T & Ty Dolla $ign
DJ Drama is getting to release Quality Street Music 2, his first album in four years, on July 22. "Boyz in the Hood" didn't make the cut due to Meek Mill's outstanding legal issues, but it is a truly soulful track that bodes well for the rest of the album. It features Meek, Pusha T, and Ty Dolla $ign. This track will serve Meek well in particular as he repairs his slightly injured reputation.
Sia Feat. Pusha T
Magnum isn’t the only brand blessing us with dope new music. Gillette has partnered up with the Rio 2016 Olympic games to create a remix of Sia’s track “Unstoppable,” featuring none other than Pusha T. The song appears exclusively as a backing track to Gillette's video for the 2016 Olympics.

Logic Feat. Pusha T
Logic is back on the scene, dropping "Flexicution" last week, and following that up with a huge new collaboration today. Pusha T, who like Logic, is signed to Def Jam, shares a verse on the gritty, 6ix-produced record, "Wrist," which finds the midway point between the two rapper's respective styles.

Drug Dealers Anonymous

This marks Hov's second guest appearance withing the last two weeks, recently putting down a 16 on Fat Joe and Remy ma's surprise smash, "All The Way Up". "Drug Dealers Anonymous" features a icy, minimal beat from DJ Dahi that sets the two up for some slick wordplay.
All I Wanted
A. Ros Feat. Pusha T
Pusha T may be an uncompromising street rapper on his own material, but when it comes to features, he's willing to try out some different styles, and his appearance on A. Ros' new song is a good example of his willingness to experiment. The track is built off of a familiar sample, allowing room for both R&B vocals and a serious pocket for some rap flows. As a result, Push manages to do a lot with his short feature, providing a good contrast, and serving as something of a bridge between A. Ros' catchy hooks.
Royce Da 5'9" Feat. Pusha T & Rick Ross
Rpyce Da 5'9" will be releasing his Layers LP in a few weeks time, and today he's released the title track from the project, complete with some exciting features.

On top of that, the track features a verse from the one and only Pusha T. With Tiber bringing it all together with his own vocal contributions and production, he's still running the show, and the record is one of his most immediate yet.
Mr. Me Too [Throwback]
Yesterday saw the return of No Malice, the artist formerly known as Malice, with a Holy Ghost-inspired track titled "Best Believe It." Thus, for today's weekly TBT track, we're revisiting some of the magic he concocted alongside his younger brother, current GOOD Music President Pusha T, as the act known as Clipse, arguably the hottest duo in rap across the '00s. One of the biggest tracks to ever come out of the Virginia brothers' partnership is "Mr.
On My Mind
Moxie Raia Feat. Pusha T
Pusha T has never been afraid to venture outside the hip-hop genre and jump on random singles, as we’ve recently seen with his previous two features, “Kung Fu” with Baauer & “Deposit” with "Paper Paulk." Well today, he’s back at it giving some more assistance to another up & coming artist i
Baauer Feat. Pusha T & Future
Baauer gave us what is secretly one of Fetty Wap's very best tracks last year with "Promises," and in January he gave us another vocal record with contributions from Novelist and Leikeli47.
Paper Paulk Feat. Pusha T
Cleveland's Paper Paulk is building a following off of his hard-edged street rap sound, and on his latest record, "Power," he's found a perfect feature to give him a bigger look, and compatibly work off of his energy. That guest is Pusha T, a rapper whose gritty wordplay has allowed him to sound comfortable beside rappers who came both before and after him. The creeping paranoia of "Deposit" is perfect territory the GOOD president, and his carefully arranged verse is a great compliment to Paulk's manic eccentricity.
This Time (iSHi Remix)
Axwell Λ Ingrosso Feat. Pusha T
Pusha surprised fans with a well-received warm-up album, Darkest Before Dawn, in December, but before that, most of his activity was reserved for EDM records. One such feature came on a single from EDM duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso, both former members of Swedish House Mafia. That song, "This Time," has now been remixed by another Swede -- iSHi, who collaborated with Push on his own single, "Push It," last February.
