(AllHipHop News) When listeners turn on a Pusha T project, by now, they should expect the Virginia-raised emcee to provide lyrics about the drug game. Push's new album, Daytona, is no different.
Besides dropping new tunes, the G.O.O.D. Music president also is launching a new Beats 1 radio show titled King Push. The first episode airs May 25 at 1:00 pm ET/10:00 am PT, and Pusha responds to critics of his cocaine bars on the inaugural program.
"A lot of people do a lot of complaining about me and my content, the street lyricism, the drug bars. But when I leave the game and go away for a little while, everybody's begging for me to come back," says Push. "If you're tired of it, just be tired of it. Stay away. You don't want it. It's not for you."
He continues, "But y'all don't do that. Y'all tell me all I rap about is coke... I say, 'You know what? I'm gonna get on my executive sh-t, president of G.O.O.D. Music sh-t.' I was playing politics, trying to work on the prison reform sh-t. I left y'all alone. Before I knew it, I'm looking on Twitter and everybody's asking for Pusha T. Where he at? Where the drug bars at? I thought y'all were tired of that sh-t."
King Push also includes the veteran Hip Hop artist discussing changing the name of his latest album, working with Kanye West, and more. Daytona is now available for purchase in the iTunes store and for streaming on all services.
