Pusha T

is having a big week. The Virginia legend can’t lose

10:02 AM

Over the past couple years, Pusha T — once half of the legendary duo The Clipse — has established himself as one of the smartest men in music. While still keeping his raps primarily focused on his narcotics-selling past and his entertainment industry present with a healthy cut of political commentary, he’s stayed relevant by pushing the envelope as president of G.O.O.D. Music and creator of the Play Cloths line of streetwear.

But this week started with a bang and ended with a banger. First, a run-in with potentially the only person more important to Virginia’s hip-hop history: Allen Iverson. The recently inducted basketball Hall of Famer and Hampton native A.I. showed up with a signed jersey and Push lost his mind. For real, jumping up and down like a little kid, which is exactly what every single person in the world would do in that situation.

Then, as if that weren’t enough, he turned right around and dropped a genuinely vicious track with Jay Z of all people called Drug Dealers Anonymous. Aside from the fact that this Jay Z verse is actually good, there’s an added value in that they threw in a clip of a rant from The Blaze’s Tomi Lahren. You can check out the full thing here, if you like.

It’s been a great week for King Push, just check out the look on his face. And we’re still two days away from a potential G.O.O.D. Friday.
