Pusha T is preparing to drop King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, the first of two upcoming projects, this Friday (Dec. 18) and to commemorate the occasion, he appeared on The Daily Show yesterday (Dec. 15) to debut a new, politically-loaded song called “Sunshine.”
Pusha’s never been one to mince words (well, except in a good way), and this new track is no exception. “In order to be me/You gotta see what Chief Keef see,” he raps after calling out everyone from Don Lemon to Talib Kweli. “Brenda’s baby next door to the candy lady/Same project as Candy Man where they still doing hand-in-hands.” During a Jill Scott-featuring interlude, the rapper raised his fist in the air in a moving evocation of the Black Power movement.
Watch his full performance below, as well as his performance of “Crutches, Crosses, and Caskets”:
