Nearly four years after the release of his widely acclaimed DAYTONA album, Pusha-T is back with the long-teased ‘It’s Almost Dry’.
The project is produced by Kanye West and Pharrell Williams and includes additional contributions from Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Lil Uzi Vert, Don Toliver, Nigo, Labrinth, and Pusha T’s brother and Clipse bandmate No Malice.
To mark the new album’s release, Pusha T was the musical guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Ahead of the record’s release, he shared the singles “Diet Coke,” “Hear Me Clearly,” and “Neck & Wrist.”
Earlier this week, Kid Cudi commented on his contribution to It’s Almost Dry. “I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye,” Cudi tweeted, referring to “Rock N Roll.” “I am not cool w that man. He’s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz thats my guy. This is the last song u will hear me on w Kanye.”
In a recent interview in March Push placed It’s Almost Dry within the larger context of his ongoing work to “heighten” the art of it all. He said:
“This is a legacy thing with me. This is all about being great. This is all about making sure that the subgenre of street rap is seen at the highest levels, and can compete with everything that’s popular. This is the realest real estate in hip-hop, and I’m the Martin Scorsese of it.”
