Pusha T ft. Kanye West & Young Jeezy - Amen

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Shawty Redd
Album:
Fear of God 2 EP

When you’re kicking it with the frontman of Odd Future Wolf Gang, you can safely assume that some commandments are gonna be broken. Thus, it’s only appropriate that Pusha T follow up Trouble on My Mind, the Tyler the Creator-assisted lead single off his solo debut by taking us to church on the follow-up. As you may have guessed, however, the overall mood of Amen is more swaggeriffic than penitent. Shawty Redd keeps it street on the production tip, blending synth-brass with a slow-rolling rhythm as the Clipse member appraises the state of his immortal soul: “Time to get saved—too late! Time to get paid / Got a gun and a stocking mask / N*ggas thought I was tryin’ to get waves?G.O.O.D. Music head honcho Kanye West makes brief appearances on the front and middle, notably threatening his enemies with pneumonia (”‘Cause I’m colder than an elf and a sleigh.”), and Young Jeezy brings the record home with some of his trademark trap talk (”Got them units packed in the back of the van like the A-Team…”). Does Pusha’s latest effort have you praising the Lord? Then be sure to pick up his highly-anticipated Fear of God 2 EP when it hits store shelves and online retailers August 23.
