Pusha T and JAY Z: it’s amazing that, after all these years, this is only the second time the two coke rap kingpins have collaborated on a song together. Crazy, right? But given the circumstances and their connections (namely, the Kanye West factor), the two have rarely appeared together on a song.
Could you imagine if Jay had hopped on the official remix to Clipse’s “Grindin'” in 2002? Instead, we were “treated” to versions with a “wobbledy wobbledy”-era Lil Wayne, Birdman, Sean Paul, and Bless. Is it any wonder that, whenever I load Lord Willin’ into my iPod I leave the last two songs out? But I’m digressing. (Peace to Kardinal Offishall for reppin’ tho!).
Despite the fact that the two of them have been friends-working partners-business associates of Kanye, it is almost shocking that it has taken six years for the two to get back in the booth together for a song following “So Appalled” on Mr West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Perhaps you can credit Fat Joe partially: he coaxed Hov out of his year-long hiatus and onto the remix of his hit single “All The Way Up.” Or, maybe he’s been hiding in the studio since Lemonade arrived. Either way, Shawn will join Terrance on “Drug Dealers Anonymous”—the first single from Pusha’s upcoming album, King Push.
Peep the artwork below and keep tabs on the DopeHouse for the impending banger—
dropping later tonight!
UPDATE: As promised, “Drug Dealers Anonymous” has arrived and both go all the way in over DJ Dahi’s gorgeous canvas.
