Required Listening: Pusha T – “King Push”

pusha king push

The wait is almost over.

Keeping fans anxious for the release of his forthcoming album, Pusha T has debuted a brand new music video.

“King Push” serves as the opening track off My Name Is My Name, and now it’s the one of the few songs to be made available ahead of the album’s official release. The track features Pusha T offering bar after bar about his rise from the streets of Virginia to the top of the charts while staying true to himself, all back by production that is likely to leave your speakers smoking. The video is all about T’s performance abilities, and through a series of set pieces the angstier half of Clipse offers a visually engaging, albeit incredibly simple accompaniment for the song. You can view the video below.

It’s worth noting that “King Push” is one of only a handful of songs off My Name Is My Name to not feature guest vocals. Pusha often recruits others for help with hooks (and headlines), but this time around it’s all eyes on him and if you ask me that’s exactly what he needs right now as far as marketing is concerned. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the track.

My Name Is My Name arrives in stores October 8. Expect a full review of the album to appear on UTG later this week.
