Pusha T - My God

Posted 5 years ago
Fear of God

After joining one of the most recognized labels in all of hip-hop, your first single has to be something spectacular—even biblical. Fittingly then, My God is Clipse founder Pusha T’s first solo effort since signing to Yeezy’s G.O.O.D. Music last September. Respecting G.O.O.D’s signature vintage sound, producer Hit-Boy crafts a beat complete with warm brass sections and colorful organ licks. The beat chugs along to a military-style drum cadence as Pusha talks himself up, awed by his own talent: “Bear with me as I unveil this instant classic / yes, my God.” As mentioned, the song “chugs,” and whether it was Pusha’s unchanging flow (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing) or the overall tempo, I found my attention drifting off at times. Then again, I could just need a Riddlin re-up. As always, we’ll let the Booth debate the quality of God, our first glimpse into the VA emcee’s upcoming project Fear of God, dropping soon. It’s no doubt a good look to be a part of Kanye’s dream squad, brushing shoulders with Cudi and Big Sean, but I wouldn’t start using the lord’s name in vain just yet.
