Pusha T and JAY-Z connect.
As he gears up for his new album, King Push reunites with King Hov on their new collaboration, “Neck & Wrist.” The resplendent track finds two of hip-hop’s most revered MCs spitting “God level” raps over a Pharrell-produced beat.
“They put me on lists with these ni**as inexplicably / I put your mansion on my wall, are you shittin’ me? / I blew bird money / Y’all talking Twitter feed,” raps JAY-Z, who sold TIDAL to former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
He goes on to reference Biggie and their ill-fated supergroup on his verse. “They like, ‘If Big was alive, Hov wouldn’t be in this position’ / If Big would’ve survived, y’all would have got The Commission,” he adds before declaring, “Hov was gon’ always be Hov.”
This is the first collaboration between the two since 2016’s “Drug Dealers Anonymous.” They also worked together on 2010’s “So Appalled” for Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
“Neck & Wrist” arrives ahead of Pusha’s long-awaited album, the follow-up to 2018’s Daytona, which was executive produced by The Neptunes and Kanye. In February, he dropped the Ye and 88 Keys-produced single “Diet Coke.”
“There’s no album that’s better than mine this year,” Pusha told Complex.
Additionally, Pusha can be heard on Nigo’s new album I Know NIGO!
