Kanye West & Pusha T - New God Flow…
Well shit! A Ghostface Killah sample is an automatic win in any book, much less mine. I’ll take an educated guess and attribute this beat to Yeezy given that it has his classic (pre-Graduation) signifiers - dusty sampled drums and heavy vocal samples (thanks RZA - more Wu!) Pusha T gets two verses and does his overly brash and very welcome Pusha T thing, which is essentially him continuing his metamorphosis into the true and only rap Ric Flair. Additional points for the new adlib making it from Mercy into this shit. WOOOOOOOO! More points for the back-and-forth bars with Kanye in the first verse too.
It’s also really nice to hear Kanye sounding really hungry again. The delivery on the track matches the intensity from the BET Awards and he lets off quite a few decent lines. That said, I could do without the Army drill chant that ends the song. That’s just the same prog-rock/corny instinct that Kanye seems to be losing control of on a more regular basis these days (see Runaway’s last half and the beat switches on Mercy and this shit - prior to the Army chant shit). Yeezy’s buzz (if not bars - then again, that’s never been his strength) is on point these days, but a little restraint would be helpful.
Geeked for Cruel Summer…
The beat was actually done by Boogz and Tapez (From Chicago). Also good point on the prog-rock beat switching, although that’s probably not the phrase I would use.
