Inside Pusha T’s Controversial ‘Daytona’: Kanye, Drake, and That Gross Whitney Houston Cover

“They tweet about the length I made ‘em wait—the fuck you expect? When a nigga got a cape and he great.” — Pusha T, “The Games We Play”

Pusha T’s third album arrived like so many of the best contemporary music releases: with almost no fanfare or traditional promo. The former Clipse rhymer hosted a listening party in NYC earlier in the week, and Daytona touched down late Thursday night/early Friday morning. Within hours the fans had spoken, and Pusha’s latest set had the web abuzz. For good reason—the concise 7-track album is the most focused, streamlined release of Pusha’s solo career. The coke tales that made him famous won’t ever go away, but they’re a framework on which Pusha T hangs his ruminations on loss, contradictions and paranoia.

Kanye West’s involvement in the album has been a major point of attention since West made his controversial return to Twitter. He shared album release dates for projects by Pusha T, Nas and Teyana Taylor, and it was confirmed that West was handling all of the production. Fans had been anticipating the release of King Push ever since 2015’s King Push: Darkest Before Dawn but there was no real indicator whether this would be a reimagining of that project or an entirely new album. Pusha T would explain that he changed the title once the themes of the album came into focus, and as he explained via Twitter, Daytona “represents the fact that I have the luxury of time. That luxury only comes when u have a skill set that your confident in.”
