G.O.O.D. Music MC Pusha T has dropped the second single to be released from his forthcoming album 'Darkest Before Dawn' (out December 18th). entitled 'M.F.T.R. (More Famous Than Rich)'. He had previously unveiled 'Untouchable' as the lead single from the record.
Co-produced by Hudson Mohawke and Boi-1da, the beat is a fusion of hypnotic, airy synths with a minimal but grimy bass undertow. The-Dream offers a fiery countenance on the hook, closing his gambit with "N*ggas ain't been to church in a minute but it's funny how a Tech make these n*ggas get religious".
It's Pusha himself though that steals the show. Like all his finest work, it will take four or five listens before one picks up on all the references he drops here. His esoteric wordplay flits between the poetic, braggadocious and intelligent at all times, and flow wise his laid-back but cocksure demeanor is as addictive as you like. In the second verse he raps of "remote control blinds that turn on a time lapse controlled by an ipad", before in the third verse he asserts "they say it's sick but it's these well dressed snakes that learnt to walk on concrete... you ain't know you been coached through it".
'Darkest Before Dawn' is the first of two upcoming full-lengths from Pusha T. The second is titled 'King Push' and is slated for release in April 2016. Listen to the absolutely ace 'M.F.T.R.' via Consequence of Sound HERE.
