G.O.O.D. Music president and “the last cocaine superhero” Pusha T closed the year with the excellent King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude. The album is full of dark, deadpan, white-powder tales. The visuals, including the accompanying short film and the clip for “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets,” are equally bleak and menacing, with religious undertones. Continuing those motifs, Pusha T drops the video for “M.F.T.R.” The Kid Art-directed flick begins with Push in a confessional booth before he and the-Dream (looking unfittingly like Smokey The Bear in a huge wide-brimmed hat) lurk around a church surrounded by religious images and opulence. Check it out.
King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude is out now on G.O.O.D. Music.
