Pusha T’s debut solo mixtape garnered some much expected anticipation. One half of The Clipse, a rap duo made up of Malice and Pusha, breaks onto the solo scene with Fear of God. His signing with G.O.O.D. music and his brother, Malices, finding god or something along those lines, allowed Pusha to concentrate on his own music. Thank god he was able todo this because he releases a great mixtape.
This mixtape leaves you with the feeling that Pusha loves three things: money, crack-cocaine and women. The verses are heavily crack/money laden. One of my favorite lines of the mixtape is off the song “Feeling Myself” featuring Kevin Cossom, “It’s my weatlh, I’m spending money like a rich white girl.” Says it all. The tape has a some freestyles which are pretty good, though I’m not a huge freestyle fan. It also contains a strong lineup of features, Rick Ross, Kanye, Ab-Liva, 50, Pharrell, and Kevin Cossom. Pusha shows why he was swooped up by ‘Ye. I’m really impressed with “My God,” “Feeling Myself” and “I Still Wanna.” He is a great lyricist, the beats are on point, and the feel of the tape is awesome. It’s a great mixtape even if it is cocaine laden but what would you expect from a man with pusher in his name. He wants to be your pusherman and I would let him allow you to try some of the musical crack he is selling, so he can put the fear of god in you. I’ve had the mixtape for a day and it already has been played through 3 times. If only he wasn’t 34 and had more time to work on this solo career.
