In the midst of the VMAs, Pusha T quietly pushed out a new track called “Sociopath” with Kash Doll, co-produced by Kanye West. In the light of Kanye’s antics lately, it’s hard to remember that his talents as a producer are immense, and we can hear it on display here.
Fans might recognize the track. It leaked last June without Kash Doll’s verse.
“I hate it,” Pusha wrote in a response. “Luckily we are talented beyond measure and can always cook up more. But I honestly hate it for the sake of making an event of a song or project, it ruins all that we have in store for u [sic] guys.”
“Sociopath” came out yesterday, and Pusha dropped another surprise track today with Ms. Lauryn Hill, also co-produced by Kanye. This one has a much sweeter sound than the comparatively more cynical “Sociopath.”
These two are the first new Pusha songs since last year’s DAYTONA and the Drake diss track “The Story of Adidon.”
