Pusha T revels in his #BestSelf on “Who I Am.”
We know that Pusha T is capable of putting “Numbers On The Boards,” but on his new song, “Who I Am,” from his forthcoming My Name Is My Name, he’s officially DONE being humble. Well, not that he was so humble before, but let’s just say the G.O.O.D. Music lieutenant is truly reveling in his #BestSelf on the new track featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean.
Listen to Pusha T featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean’s “Who I Am” after the jump.
On the sparse, spacey Kanye West and Mano-produced track, the “Street Life” rhymer declares he’s gonna be who he was destined to be, regardless of what anyone thinks. “They said be all you can be/ I just wanna buy another Roley/ I just wanna pop another band/ I just wanna be dope forever/ I just wanna be who I am,” he raps. That’s right, do you, dude!
2 Chainz hops on next, spitting about how he plans to love and celebrate life (in the gentleman’s club, of course): “Entrepreneur/ Strip club connoisseur/ Hot fudge sundae/ pour it on you, hallelujah!” OK, first off, ice cream could be sticky, so not sure you’d want to pour anything on ANYBODY when you’re getting busy. Second, just make sure the fudge is room temperature, OK? That would NOT be a fun burn injury to explain at the hospital.
But really, who are we to judge? Pusha and Co. are preaching a message of self-love (even if the “self” is engaged in some form of illegal activity), and we could never take that away from them. Like, “Who I Am” is basically a hood version of Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love Of All“! WHICH IS THE GREATEST CONCEPT OF ALL.
