Pusha T and Jay Z, two of hip-hop’s vivid storytellers, teamed up to deliver two confessional bars about their past life as street hustlers on “Drug Dealers Anonymous.”
Over a eerie, grungy beat provided by DJ Dahi, King Push rap metaphoric verses about drugs, money and violence. In one line, he talks about donating supplies during the 2016 Flint Water Crisis.
“America’s nightmare’s in Flint / Children of a lesser God when your melanin’s got a tint / And I can’t even mention what I sent or what I spent / Cause my name in 18 wheelers is evidence,” he raps.
Meanwhile, Hov takes aim at conservative pundit Tomi Lahren who criticized his wife Beyonce for marrying a former drug dealer.
“Bitch I been brackin’ since the ‘80s / Google me baby, you crazy / ’89 in London pull the Benz up / Type it in, Google’s your friend bruh,” he raps. Then adds, “14-year drug dealer and still counting / Who deserves the medal of freedom is my accountant.”
Jay Z is two for two with delivering rap quotables. The Roc Nation dropped some fantastic rhymes on Fat Joe’s “All the Way Up (Remix)” and now on “Drug Dealers Anonymous.” And he doesn’t even have an album out.
Pusha T is currently working on his next project, King Push, which is the follow-up to his 2015 effort, Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude. No word on a release date yet.
