Back of the envelope math says Swizz Beatz is washed as fuck and his new album has to be feeble attempts at relevance with famous friends who donated a hook after a night of doing rich people drugs. Not so. Swizz’ Pusha T feature stands up next to any haute couture Grisela release. There are no drums and Pusha T doesn’t toss off a few verses for a check as is his wont. (Search YouTube for “featuring Pusha T” — the guy does guest appearances like Shaq does commercials.)
On here, Swizz and Pusha look back a generation and despair. They don’t ape Lil Uzi Vert; rather, they ask if they’ve failed him.
