New Music Friday

Pusha T has finally released his newly anticipated album ‘Daytona’. This particular song features Kanye West and is called “What would Meek do”.

Despite all the controversy surrounding Kanye, he was able to deliver a very solid feature on the track addressing a number of issues. On one of the lines he raps “Everything Ye say cause a new debate”, Kanye touches on the fact he knows how controversial he is. One of the standout lines in the song will definitely have to be “If you ain’t drivin’ while Black, do they stop you?”. Subtle reference but that’s the reality of America at the moment. Regardless of Kanye’s “outlandish” behaviour, you cannot argue he has a talent when it comes to music.

Another controversial topic of this album is the album cover. It is rumoured to be Whitney Houston’s hotel bathroom that she stayed in before she tragically passed. The picture shows the chaos left behind with the drugs everywhere. It can be argued that Pusha T who is open about the fact he has made his millions by selling drugs is trying to highlight the juxtaposition of the effects of drugs. On one hand, someone is profiting and the other, some may not even survive.

Take a listen to the song below…
