Kanye West went on a special rant last week at Pusha T’s album listening party for “My Name Is My Name.” Yeezus proclaimed Pusha “the heart of the culture” and deemed everyone else “culture vultures.” With less than a month to go before the album drops, Pusha has released a new song “Nosetalgia,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, and he’s making good on Kanye’s assertion.
As reported by complex.com:
“Pusha T releases his new song ‘Nosetalgia’ featuring Kendrick Lamar. Pusha lets it fly on the first line with ’20 plus years of selling Johnson & Johnson/I started out as a baby face monster/No wonder there’s diaper rash on my conscience/My teething ring was numbed by the nonsense’ and Kendrick drops a Boyz In Da Hood reference at the start of his verse.
“One of the more anticipated songs from Pusha T’s upcoming G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam debut My Name Is My Name, the track features Pusha and Kendrick ripping into production from Nottz.”
Nosetalgia sounds like a true rap record. There’s no one singing any hooks or any overproduced sounds on the beat, just Pusha and Kendrick providing line after line of great raps. The song sounds like Jay Z’s D.O.A., and in that same spirit Nosetalgia is unlike anything currently on the radio right now.
Pusha T’s new album My Name Is My Name is scheduled to be released on Oct. 8.
