underrated thread

d'eejban (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 14 February 2013 05:16 (five years ago) Permalink

i'm surprised that nobody mentioned how incredibly appropriate the marlo line is for the LP title. (after being disappointed at the poor showing of this poll). like, of COURSE pusha idolizes marlo, maybe the most idiotically hardheaded tv character. pusha also shares marlo's self destructive streak. his bro basically shoving the "walk away with some dignity" in his face and push is like "nooooo but i wanna be faaamous"

some of the lines on the new mixtape along the lines of "i know i'm making all the wrong choices but can everyone just pretend i'm tony montana for a sec". "i am forgiven" is just so painful. it almost becomes compelling in the same way marlo was kind of my fav character on the wire... but even though i'm spending a lot of breath bitching about push here my appetite for trainwrecks has decreased significantly as of late. yeucch

Curren$y was all about "my name is my name" years ago

The Reverend, Thursday, 14 February 2013 08:03 (five years ago) Permalink

i never really followed curren$y but from the limited amount i know of him he seems relatively normal and well adjusted? like i get how he might use that line cuz marlo was BA or whatever, but pusha invoking marlo in this case is actually a little spot on. push just exudes this awareness of how ridiculous he is and CONTINUES to run with it. he's a lil special in that way i think

Time for an ILX teaching moment: Can someone explain to me why Pusha is, it seems, generally thought of as a joke? I dug Hell Hath No Fury, paid zero attention since then, but am loving this new album pretty much top to bottom.

alpine static, Tuesday, 5 November 2013 01:34 (four years ago) Permalink

haven't given a shit about him in years but my best guess is that he's just one of those dudes who's hopped onto trends in a desperate attempt to stay relevant

AS: It dates back, I think, to Clipse's national breakout as a blog favorite at their start and Pusha's monocular focus on drug sales

my boy was trying to tell me the kelly rowland track has pusha doing a "perfect 98 ma$e flow" which i guess is kinda true but is that really what you want people saying about your album?

The burrito of ennui (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 13 January 2016 02:52 (two years ago) Permalink

Album is solid but I don't think it has real standouts, except "Keep Dealing." As far as Timbaland goes, "Untouchable" is good not great, poorly integrated chorus though. "Got Em Covered" is nails on chalkboard.

Idk any big negative reason to single dude out. He's a rapper that gets overpraised by a certain kind of fan and...that's mostly it.

nova, Wednesday, 13 January 2016 16:49 (two years ago) Permalink

this is pretty good - is every track going to be on "king push" proper?

the late great, Friday, 15 January 2016 07:00 (two years ago) Permalink

this seems quite good, and enjoyably surprising - the track with beanie (who sounds bizarre) sounds like it could have been produced by el-p (did he use this sample for someone else?). so i give him props for trying something a bit artier, but im not sure it really gels, and i dunno if i really want to hear pusha going arty. as a rapper, i think hes at the bottom of his barrel at this point and has nothing new to say, or no new way of repeating his usual content in a way we havent heard already.

StillAdvance, Monday, 18 January 2016 12:37 (two years ago) Permalink

actually, its more a split between more trad stuff (MPA sounds like something from kanye's dark twisted fantasy) and the slightly outre stuff isnt it...

StillAdvance, Monday, 18 January 2016 12:51 (two years ago) Permalink

beans might have had part of his lung removed cut him some slack. voice is still there but not the power. he sounded like this whenever he popped up in 2015.

dylannn, Monday, 18 January 2016 16:39 (two years ago) Permalink

love the way he can sound conversational, quickfire lock a bunch of lines together with just the tempo or some internal rhyme or hitting the assonance riding the beat and closing with a couplet quotable. never get tired of coke dealing similes, monocle magazine eye for meaningful luxury reference.

the only thing drake can do now is drop a track to make pusha feel bad about hurting his feelings. "you found my blackface pics, man that really scars / i guess the T in Pusha T stands for 'took it too far'"

awesome interview, whiney. particularly loled at this part:

What was Wyoming like for you?
I didn't know what to expect, but I knew we were going to work and we were going to get all the work done. Absolutely, positively nothing but focus in a place like that. Totally not a outdoors person, I'm not into it. I'm not into wildlife. I'm not into moose. I'm not into mountain lions. I'm not into foxes, coyotes. I'm not into birds with long wingspans, snakes, hate it all. Hate it all.

Hiking?
Hate it. Not my thing.

How many times have you been camping in your lifetime?
Never. Never camping, never going. What you do is you camp out in these amazing mountain mansions.
