Jay Z Is Trying To Keep 'Damn, Daniel' Alive

On Pusha T’s ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’

Sure, they're rap stars now, but, as you may have heard if you've ever listened to any of their music, Pusha T and Jay Z used to bring home the bread using a bit of a different approach.

"Drug Dealers Anonymous," which is the first single from Pusha's upcoming album and features Hov, explores and recounts those illicit pasts, while also weaving in recent references.

"America’s nightmare's in Flint / Children of a lesser God when your melanin’s got a tint / And I can’t even mention what I sent or what I spent / 'Cause my name in 18 wheelers is evidence," Push raps over DJ Dahi's shadowy production, recalling his donation earlier this year in the wake of the Michigan city's water crisis.

And then there's Jay, with his multiple nods to his beloved Internet in his verse. "Bitch I been brackin’ since the '80s / Google me baby, you crazy / ’89 in London pull the Benz up / Type it in, Google’s your friend, bruh," he raps. And later, in a creative callback to one of 2016's most viral moments: "Damn, Daniel, FBI keep bringing them all white vans through."

This is Hov's second musical reemergence in a week, following his remix of Fat Joe and Remy Ma's "All the Way Up." Pusha, meanwhile, is gearing up to release his upcoming solo album, King Push.
