Menacing. Pusha T knows how to select beats that agree with his unique voice, signature “yuuuh”, and dark, snowy, lyrical content. Bringing back Puff Daddy on the boards results brilliantly in the disjointed, aggressive “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets” and a few more notable moments. Timbaland excels as Pusha projects “The flow plays limbo courtesy of Timbo” over a middle eastern-inspired beat on ‘Got ‘Em Covered’. Beanie Siegel delivers the powerful “you watched me walk through hell, now watch me walk up out it” on “Keep Dealing”. One of the year’s final rap releases is also among the best.

Grade:
90/97
