Powder face like a Geisha
First off, let’s throw on a veil of selective amnesia. Big Sean never outshone Pusha T on “Mercy”. That whole Pusha/Weezy “beef” never happened. Actually, let’s just forget everything post-2010 VMAs. Let’s take it back to the days when the Virginia Coke brothers were at their most ruthless and The Neptunes were basically infallible. You’re there? Take a second, take it in. Alright, so Pusha T just released a new song with autotune automaton Future on the hook and Yeezy behind the boards. Anyone hoping for a Lord Willin’ redux will be disappointed here, as Pusha is a different animal without twin brother Malice, but “Pain” has as much machinegun wordplay as any Pusha verse of yore. If you’re a The Wire nerd like I am, “Pain” is pure ear candy (could have been Travon/but instead I chose Avon). Stream the track below and use your own facilities to grab a download. Yeeuchhhhh.
