When King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude dropped at the end of 2015 it was met with almost universal acclaim. The production was magnificent and the raps were brick heavy and full of bombast. It was a concise, nearly perfect album, and the addition of “The Prelude” served as an ominous warning that the main course had yet to even arrive. Yet years passed and the “real” album has still yet to arrive. Ever busy, Pusha T instead entered the political sphere, stepped into greater responsibility as president of G.O.O.D Music, and has pushed to open dialogues about the tenuous racial climate in America.

Honestly Pusha T is so cool that I didn’t even know what to write about. He’s probably wearing ostrich or stepping out of a Saint Laurent helicopter right now. Although it’s been just over two years since we last had an album from Push, he’s remained more active in almost every industry than most people will ever be. Art, fashion, music: if you like it, King Push was probably there first. After all Kanye said it best, “Pusha T is Everything”.
