Pusha T has been to conflict this 12 months, 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 by means of along with his Scorpion double album. Before Kanye West determined to modify the narrative (as he repeatedly does) and make shorter musical tasks, artists have been dishonest the streaming system with excessively lengthy albums. Chris Brown‘s Heartbreak on a Full Moon might be the very best instance, that includes over 40 songs on the tracklist. King Push was the primary to launch as a part of G.O.O.D. Music’s takeover and he clearly feels some kind of method about artists dropping prolonged tracklists.
During his interview for the Red Bull Music Academy, Push spoke about all issues Clipse, Daytona, and extra, probably throwing some subs at Drake within the course of. The idea of stream trolling was introduced up and whereas Culture II, Tha Carter V and others are all relevant, it is most probably that the Virginia artist had a particular man in thoughts when he made the next remark. He instructed the host, “The concept of all people placing like 25 tracks on an album to get the streams up, it’s such a poverty method of like dishonest to me.”
He’s beforehand spoken about album size, preaching for extra concise our bodies of labor. He reiterated that right here, saying, “I used to be like, what, we have to be completely in opposition to all the things, and we have to have an entire 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 12 months, this must be a refined jab at his rival. Also, Scorpion has precisely 25 songs on it, so there’s that.
