One of the best things about Pusha T is that even when he’s rapping over lopsided percussion and high-pitched, drawn out, guitar riffs, he’s still the kingpin of gruff. For his latest offering from My Name Is My Name, he enlists fellow snarler Kendrick Lamar to trade verses through their teeth while an elongated sample of KRS-One’s “The Bridge Is Over” pads the background. Despite massive delays, Name is slated for release next month and with the illustrious bounty we’ve already been given — even when it’s featuring Chris Brown — it’s slated to be one of the better albums in an already-remarkable year for rap. We know Kanye likes it. Check out “Nosetalgia” (-____- at that portmanteau, though) below.

My Name Is My Name is out 10/8 via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam.

  1. Never thought I’d see -____- make an appearance in a Stereogum article.

    Respect Claire.

  2. I’m digging the production on this and ‘numbers on the boards’.

  3. Sometimes I worry that I’m bored by Pusha’s coke-brag-only thing but then a new song comes out and I remember that I am wrong and Pusha T is awesome.
