Pusha T has been to warfare this yr, pulling out all of the stops in opposition to 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 change the narrative (as he frequently does) and make shorter musical initiatives, artists had been dishonest the streaming system with excessively lengthy albums. Chris Brown’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon might be the perfect instance, that includes over 40 songs on the tracklist. King Push was the primary to launch as half G.O.O.D. Music’s takeover and he clearly feels some sort method 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 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 instructed the host, “The concept everyone placing like 25 tracks on an album to get the streams up, it’s such a poverty method like dishonest to me.”
He’s beforehand spoken about album size, preaching for extra concise our bodies work. He reiterated that right here, saying, “I used to be like, you recognize what, we should be completely in opposition to all the things, and we have to have a complete 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 yr, this must be a delicate jab at his rival. Also, Scorpion has precisely 25 songs on it, so there’s that.
