Ughhk

In probably the most active year of rap music, Pusha T came thru at the end with the knockout punch. This is a lean and mean 10 song collection of unconventional beats and endlessly quotable rhymes. Push finally sounds comfortable as a solo star so you weak MC’s should fear the future. Ha!—EW

          • Tomas Anthony

            and yours?

  • Winston Wolfe

    Cosign! This was a dope album. Just lyrics and beats. No bells and whistles. No gimmicks or auto-tune. No rapper dances

    • jay

      agreed this album is sick. I love every song on it.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    Good album but not enough tracks on the album.

  • Brokeback Cowboy

    If I see a Future album at number 1, I may well implode

    • Tomas Anthony

      it’ll be kendrick

      • Savimbi

        Or rick ross lol Ross Radar!!!

        • Tomas Anthony

          if that garbage ass project somehow some miraculous way shows up im done with this site for a loooooong time lmao

      • Brokeback Cowboy

        It should be, but with Future on the RR dicksuck radar, anything can happen!!

  • Brokeback Cowboy

    Deserves its place for the artwork alone!

  • Joni

  • Da Business

    🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    • Tomas Anthony

      fire? yes. top 10? no.

  • Kaybee

    That documentary 2 better be up there since I didn’t see it on the underrated list

    • Guest

      Don’t hold your breath! That is not making any of these lists. Trust me. RR doesn’t really fuck with Game.

  • THE REAL mac DIESEL

    I’D PUT THIS AT #5!!!! ELLIOTT WILSON’S OLD ASS STILL CAN’T GET IT RIGHT!!!! YOUR HIP-HOP CARD SHOULD BE RETIRED!!!! YOU OLD FUCKIN’ DINOSAUR!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Billy Kincaid

    It’s too short to be above A$AP, but some would argue that A$AP is too long.

  • Excellent album w/no filler. Great production on this joint too. Dream definitely killed the hooks.

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    I just listened to this and it was incredible ! I didn’t like the Keep Dealing single on its own, but in context this is a very cohesive album with so much personality! Great work Pusha !!
