    Pusha T has been on the quiet side when it comes to new music lately, so it’s no wonder fans are getting restless.

    On Sunday (September 20), a fan tweeted the G.O.O.D. Music rapper complaining about his lack of material this year, saying, “Bruh 2020 is almost done and we are yet to hear from u…..” A ruthless Pusha responded, telling them to play the waiting game like everyone else.

    “So the f--- what?” Pusha said. “You will wait on greatness like the rest…”

    Pusha’s response carries the same energy as lyrics on “The Games We Play” from his DAYTONA album.

    “They tweet about the length I made ’em wait, what the f--- you expect?/When a n***a got a cape and he’s great,” Pusha raps on the 2018 track.

    Imagine letting some random person on twitter get under your skin lol. Daytona was awesome but it was 20 minutes long. It's a valid question. Shouldn't be that tough to make some more coke selling songs in 2 years

    Came in here to say exactly this. Classic album but had like 5 songs. He should be grateful fans are wanting music from him and oblige instead of telling us "So the f--- what."

    Pusha is an incredibly talented lyricist, but it's difficult to dispute that half of the genius for that album came from Kanye's impeccable production. At the moment, it seems like Kanye may not be capable of that type of concerted effort. I suspect that an album conceived from the usual list of industry producers would fall pretty flat when compared to Daytona. For context, look at the singles Pusha released before Daytona that never made the cut as well as those that he has released since Daytona. They're good songs, but they don't hold a candle to those that made the album.

    I'm just hopeful that Kanye will be able to reach a mental equilibrium that will allow him to produce a masterpiece like Daytona sometime in the future. Until that time, Pusha's reluctance to release a product that is — inevitably — inferior to Daytona is somewhat understandable.

    How many solos has he actually released though and how long has he been in the game? Shouldn't be a surprise to have to wait 5-10 years between drops. Not that I don't want it!

    its only been 2 years..... Whats a way bigger issue is that kendric, Soulo and Zay - in the prime of their careers all haven't dropped an album in nearly half a decade

    To be fair, it's not like he just recorded exactly 7 songs and it took him three years to do so. I believe in an interview he said he had something 12-16 songs in running for the album and didn't wanna cut it down like Kanye wanted at first but eventually came around to it.

    I get why people are eager for more music when an artist releases a shorter album, but figuring out the right length is also part of the recording process. I'd much rather have a tight 21-minute, 7-song album that's great all the way through than the bloated s--- that a lot of artists put out now. Like when Scorpion came out and everything was Drake vs. Pusha T, I remember thinking that I couldn't even find 7 good songs on Drake's 25 song album to match up lol.

    I'm as eager for new Kendrick/Zay as you are but for Kendrick really hasn't been that long—d--- in 2017 and BP in 2018. It was three years between GKMC and TPAB and two years between TPAB and d---, it's a pretty standard waiting period. And it was nearly three years between Cilvia and Sun's Tirade and has been four years since the latter.

    It's not like all these artists are wasting their prime by not dropping, they're just taking the time to record and perfect their album. Kendrick, Zay, and Push have all had very consistent careers and I'm ok with them taking their time to record consistently great albums instead of dropping just to drop.

    Yeah I get that. I was more ripping him for coming at a fan like a D bag. The amount of trolls he ignores and he chooses to b---- to someone who supports him. Not to mention it is a warranted comment when he promised more music was coming the summer of 2018 and he never dropped anything
