With Pusha T’s new album, DAYTONA, out Friday (May 25), it was expected there would be plenty of reactions from the Hip Hop world. Even leading up to its release, folks couldn’t stop talking about the Whitney Houston cover art.
The 7-track LP has two features — Rick Ross and Kanye West — and as Pusha said it has, “No fluff. No filler.”
With that said, people have had a decent amount of time to listen to it (all 21 minutes) and some of Hip Hop’s favorites have already responded.
Diddy says it’s a “Modern day masterpiece.”
Nas called it a “Classic album.”
Even Kanye took a moment to speak on the album and the “overwhelmingly positive response” it received.
Take a look at some of the reactions to DAYTONA below.
Daytona is the first project out of Wyoming. I’m really proud of what we put together. We’ve spent a year and a half digging for samples and writing. I really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive response that we’ve been receiving. ???
