Pusha T ‘Never Heard’ Kendrick Talk Like He Does On ‘Nosetalgia’

'I felt it was really dope that Kendrick hopped in my world,' Pusha tells MTV News of sinister new single.

Kendrick Lamar has made his living playing the good kid, but on Pusha T’s newly released “Nosetalgia,” the critically acclaimed lyricist shows off another side entirely.

“I never heard [Kendrick] talk like that,” Pusha told MTV News last Thursday when we sat down to preview the G.O.O.D. Music M.C.’s forthcoming solo debut, My Name is My Name.

As a member of the Clipse, Pusha has mastered the art of what his fans dub “coke rap,” and on “Nosetalgia” K-Dot tries his hand at it with a sinister verse.

“You wanna see a dead body/ Instrumentals from my mama’s Christmas party,” Lamar spits, making reference to a famous scene in 1991’s “Boyz n the Hood.”

From there, Kendrick rhymes about his missing Sega Genesis video games, which he assumes were stolen by his aunt to support her drug habit. He goes on to talk about his father’s drug dealing and substance abuse over the Nottz-produced beat: “Broke his nails/ Misused his pinky to treat his nose.”

The Compton MC finds a way to fit in on the deep and dark track, even as Pusha turns to talking about drug mules and Pyrex pots, which he uses to turn cocaine to crack. “I felt it was really dope that Kendrick hopped in my world — the street life — and [put] his perspective on it,” Pusha said.
