Pusha T

Newsweek International - - CULTURE -

DAY­TONA (GOOD MU­SIC/DEF JAM) 2018 was the year of the su­per-short al­bum, with Day­tona the best thing to emerge from Kanye West’s pro­duc­tive record­ing binge in Wyoming. Pusha T—who crams in­nu­mer­able ideas into a rap al­bum the length of a Se­in­feld episode (seven tracks, 21 min­utes)—sounds in­vig­o­rated by West’s crate-dig­ging beats as he rhymes about coke-deal­ing (“Come Back Baby”) and prods Drake into a much-pub­li­cized rap beef (“In­frared”). You cer­tainly won’t find an­other hip-hop al­bum that freely (and in­ge­niously) sam­ples the Yes clas­sic “Heart of the Sun­rise.”
