Unfortunately, with the hip hop world abuzz over Drake’s leaked album, it may have been easy to miss Pusha T’s newest release. “Nosetalgia” is Pusha T and Kendrick Lamar’s ode to their formative years, a stroll down memory lane paved in bricks of cocaine. In hip hop, it isn’t necessarily what you say, but how you say it. And Pusha, well, he has style. In fact, after Pusha’s first verse, I feel like I should be wearing the finest mink coat. “I, too, can be a Kingpin,” Pusha T has taught me.
Not to be outdone, Kendrick delivers a smart second verse that fans have come to expect out of the young MC. Diametric figures, Pusha and Kendrick seem to find common ground on this track in the addictive influence of hip hop and dope lyrics.
“Nosetalgia” will be on Pusha T’s upcoming album My Name is My Name, which will be released on October 8th. Listen to the track below.
