From Meek Mill’s new mixtape DC4, get it HERE.
Meek Mill – Two Wrongs feat. Guordan Banks & Pusha T. (16′)
Directed by Chris Ullens, get it now!
In the midst of his stint as G.O.O.D Music president and dropping new music, Pusha T has stepped up to the forefront of political and social advocacy. The Brooklyn rapper has actively supported Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and as of late, King Push has dabbled in the journalism realm, interviewing his newest signee Desiigner.
In a recent video released via Complex, the rapper flexes his reporting skills as he interviews filmmaker Ava Duvernay on the significance behind her newest film 13th, released in theaters on Oct. 7. Ava DuVernay’s gripping documentary 13th is based on the 13th amendment, and sheds light on the increasingly high rate of mass incarceration within America.
The GOOD Music boss (a.k.a. El presidenté, a.k.a. Blowbama) has aired out his grievances with the rap game on “H.G.T.V.,” produced by Mike Will Made-It. The blistering cut clocks in at just over two minutes, but Pusha makes the most of his time with hard-hitting bars aimed at those who’ve failed to top him, check out the tune below.

Following rescheduled phone calls and pencilled-in meetings from New York City to London to Amsterdam, we finally catch Pusha T when he’s back home in Virginia Beach, the city where he was raised after his parents moved from the Bronx when he was young. A scroll through his Instagram feed throws up posts from Berlin, Copenhagen and Stockholm, where the recently appointed G.O.O.D Music president has been performing, having meetings and inspecting European streetwear stores, but right now it’s 9AM and the early-rising rapper has just finished up at the gym.
“Success looks like longevity and being able to provide, being able to be a chameleon and change with the times. To be relevant in so many different times without compromising yourself. Success looks like Pusha T.” It’s a hefty statement, but one that can’t really be denied. While Pusha, born Terence Thornton, has avoided the celebrity scandal that would be required to place him on the front of the gossip magazines, to music fans he’s up there with the best of them.
After breaking through in 2002 with the timeless syncopated table-beating rhythm of ‘Grindin’’ as one half of The Clipse with his brother Malice – and bringing street credibility to Justin Timberlake’s debut single ‘Like I Love You’ in the same year – he went on to release two LPs produced entirely by The Neptunes at the height of their career. After their third album, ‘Til The Casket Drops’, The Clipse went on an indefinite hiatus, but Pusha would go on to enjoy the next leg of his mammoth career as a solo artist under Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music imprint. In a genre where you’re lucky to get to album three without completely losing relevance, Pusha has consistently continued to win, maintaining his integrity and sounding as fresh as ever. By his own definition, there’s no doubting his success.
