Pusha T has been to warfare this 12 months, pulling out all of the stops towards his arch nemesis Drake. Both launched albums in 2018 with Pusha dropping the stellar Daytona and Drizzy coming via together with his Scorpion double album. Before Kanye West determined to modify the narrative (as he repeatedly does) and make shorter musical tasks, artists had been dishonest the streaming system with excessively lengthy albums. Chris Brown’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon might be the most effective instance, that includes over 40 songs on the tracklist. King Push was the primary to launch as a part of G.O.O.D. Music’s takeover and he clearly feels some sort of approach about artists dropping prolonged tracklists.
During his interview for the Red Bull Music Academy, Push spoke about all issues Clipse, Daytona, and extra, presumably throwing some subs at Drake within the course of. The idea of stream trolling was introduced up and whereas Culture II, Tha Carter V and others are all relevant, it is most definitely that the Virginia artist had a selected man in thoughts when he made the next remark.

He’s beforehand spoken about album size, preaching for extra concise our bodies of labor. He reiterated that right here, saying, “I used to be like, what, we should be completely towards all the pieces, and we have to have an entire different mantra in regard to what we’re doing.”
Take his feedback as you’ll. Considering the back-and-forth episodes we skilled earlier within the 12 months, this must be a delicate jab at his rival. Also, Scorpion has precisely 25 songs on it, so there’s that.
