Pusha T, "The Only Dopeboy Quotable," & Kanye Present: "Lunch Money" (King Push?)

"Jesus Christ, #LunchMoney make me wanna sucker-punch 14 Elk in the nose. Might be my fav @PUSHA_T backdrop since #Trill or #RideAroundShinin," Tonight Show bandleader @questlove exuberantly Tweeted. Former Clipse emcee Pusha T is supposedly holed up in the studio with Pharrell/The Neptunes, Kanye, and rookie producer Hudson Mohawke, earnestly working on the follow-up to his impeccable solo debut, My Name Is My Name (2013), tentatively titled "King Push." Early Tuesday morning without any prior rhyme or reason, a new thumping Kanye-produced track appeared on Google Play all of a sudden, which quickly disappeared; it was later premiered on Funkmaster Flex's radio show and soon thereafter, spread like wildfire across The Internet. "Kanye's best for ["Lunch Money"] is a gurgling, lurching soup of confusing, disorienting sounds, but all those sounds are built around a very basic, very funky pulse," Stereogum's very own Hip-Hop Head In Chief, Tom Breihan writes. Kanye's first seemingly self-destructive post-Yeezus beat is anchored around a particularly neck-snapping sample culled from Gang Starr's 1991 Jazz-Rap masterpiece, "Just to Get a Rep," according to SPIN's diligent digging. "That's the type of energy I'm looking for in creating this new King Push album," Pusha T revealed to MTV News on the set of his soon-to-be-released "Lunch Money" music video. "It needs to be rebellious and angry. I was trying to go for that, I have expressed that to [Kanye] so many times, so I guess when he was cooking up [beats], this is what he came up with." Pusha T recently appeared alongside G.O.O.D. Music affiliates French Montana, Future, and Travi$ Scott on a brooding Hip-Hop-infused remix of Hudson Mohawke's Apple MacBook Air-endorsed "Chimes." While King Push currently lacks a proper release date, it's already quite arguably one of the most anticipated albums of 2015.
