The good times keep rolling for Pusha T. The G.O.O.D. Music president has released his new track “Untouchable,” which samples Notorious B.I.G.'s distinct verse on the 1995 Pudgee cut, “Think Big.”

“I drops every blue moon/ To separate myself from you kings of the YouTube/ I am more U2/ I am like Bono with the edge,” Pusha gloats on the Timbaland-produced beat.

King Push recently broke down the “Untouchable” lyrics for Genius and discusses how he nabbed Timbo for the beat.

Pusha T Named President of G.O.O.D. Music: Exclusive

“I basically just hit Tim up one night," he said. "I work out of his studio in Virginia. He’s never there, and he literally lets me record whatever I want to record for free. So we’ve always had a rapport, simply on that note -- he never owed me no music, or no beats. But I just asked him, like 'Yo. What’s up man, I need some heat.'"

Push also explained the title. "[Timbaland] gave me the beat as is," he continued. "He gave me everything with the B.I.G. line in it. It was based around rap and feeling untouchable. He called me with that untouchable attitude, and I definitely had the untouchable rap attitude, and attacked it that way.”
