Pusha T: Fear of God (mixtape)

Posted on

This is Pusha’s long-awaited mixtape as a part of G.O.O.D. music, and his first official solo release since putting work on hold with his brother Malice as a part of The Clipse. The mixtape features production from The Neptunes, Kanye, Nottz, Boi 1da among others. This is the prelude to Pusha’s debut album, which will drop before the new Clipse release, and is rumored to be produced entirely by Kanye West. Enjoy the dope beats and Pusha T’s aggressively poignant flow and inspired lyricism on this tape in the meantime (via Grooveshark).

Posted on

“Jump Down” is the first single off of Travis Barker’s upcoming album, Give The Drummer Some, which is set for an October release on Interscope. The album will feature production from DJ Khalil, The Neptunes, Swizz Beatz, RZADJ Premier, and Pete Rock, with verses from hip hop heavyweights such as Weezy, Eminem, Pharrell, RZA, Lupe Fiasco, Rick Ross, The Clipse, Ghostface, among other big names. Barker, who is known for his hard, punchy hip hop remixes, played drums on all the tracks and served as the executive producer of the album. The track was produced by Barker and Chuck Inglish, and has a simplistically fresh synthy breakbeat under some gritty rhymes from Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids.

Kanye West drops another track from his G.O.O.D. Friday releases. The track features the label’s heavyweights CommonKid Cudi, Big SeanCharlie Wilson and marks the G.O.O.D. Music debut of the brother Thornton and Pusha T of The Clipse. This is an exciting new alliance in hip hop, with both Pusha T’s solo debut and The Clipse’s next album being released through Kanye’s label. “Good Friday” displays the stripped-down sound that I’ve been waiting for from Kanye and officially has me excited for his new album. The November release is set to feature production from hip hop legends DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Just Blaze, RZA, to name just a few. The beat has College Dropout-esque drums over a simple piano loop, but you can’t help and nod your head.
