    hes always been as conservative and unimaginative musically as he has been lyrically. middle of the road. ploddingly obvious. creatively bankrupt. inane. glib.

    The Pusha T album, which he produced, is brilliant. Haven't heard his own one yet.

    Edit: I see Corpsey has already said as much.

    daytona is basically kanye thinking hes making a madlib album for stones throw.
    it is the best pusha t album since clipse ended but the weird feeling i had listening to it was that pusha now sounds like hes from another era entirely (ie he sounds OLD in a way that kanye, oddly, doesnt).
    q-tip might be the only half decent human being on GOOD music.

    clipse never really felt real anyway. they came out of nowhere with a whole album produced by the neptunes. they were sort of like a good version of magoo.

    pusha t now sounds somewhere between a sociopathic arsehole and a silly crack dealer cartoon trying too hard to be outrageous. all these journalists tripping over themselves with gleeful drug dealer imagery are a bit embarassing.

    the good thing about rick ross (also on daytona) is that he/the audience all know it is a big ruse whereas with pusha t, everyone is buying into the idea that it is all real, based on what exactly, i cant remember anymore, but i see it as another stupid example of rap fans/rappers' misguided obsession with authenticity.

    I wasn't sure about the Pusha T album at first, but it grew on me and I've had it on a lot since then; everything I like about Ye - the beats, the length - is done better on Daytona and everything I don't like about it - weak lyrics, sloppy mixing - isn't an issue with Daytona.

    His remix of 'I Don't Like' was awful though

    we're talking about someone whos sense of hip is so q magazine that he looped curtis mayfield move on up and thought that was acceptable. we're talking about someone who sampled daft punk. we're talking, essentially, about a square.

    if you havent listened to kanye since 2008 or so, then your opinion makes sense.

    i listened to at least 30 seconds of each of the new pusha t songs.
    chugging is not a word that should ever be applicable to rap music.

    Infared reminds me of Roc Marciano production (probably a capital crime for some of y'all). That's a good atmospheric space for Pusha T.

    Listening to 'Mama I'm So Sorry' followed by 'Infared' shows how much Pusha has progressed in the intervening years. Maybe not a good pick. I need to revisit the Clipse discography with more of an ear for the rapping.
