- Artist: Pusha T
- Track: My God
- Producer: Hit-Boy
- Album: 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.
