Pusha T Essentials
Pitching from Virginia, Pusha T broke through in the '00s with his brother Malice as the Clipse. The duo's smart and expansive take on the drug game came across like a hip-hop version of The Wire, complete with sterling production by The Neptunes. After Malice found religion, King Push was brought into the G.O.O.D. Music family. His solo work and guest spots continue the tradition of the Clipse by combining razor-sharp rhyming skills with lyrics inspired by the streets.
