Within Nigo’s star-studded roster for his upcoming album I Know NIGO, King Push is more than a perfect fit for the renowned designer’s upper echelon of artists. Recruiting A$AP Rocky for “Arya” and Kid Cudi for “Want It Bad,” Push and Nigo’s “Hear Me Clearly” is the third single ahead of the BAPE founder, KENZO curator’s highly-anticipated project later this month.
On “Hear Me Clearly” — produced by Ye — features droning, reverb bells complement a head-bobbing “drummer boy” pattern in the back of the mix — allowing Push’s vocals to fully shine in the spotlight. As cold and vicious as ever, Push’s street references are nothing short of immaculate in pure “Clipse” fashion, rhyming “left my elbow in the pot, a la Vince Carter” among many other quotables.
“Never tell a jeweler what you spent for a wristwatch
We don’t f—k bitches who f—k n—s on TikTok.
See the difference between me and them?
I move to a different drum like EDM.
This Coke speak to my soul, just like a medium.
F—kin comedians.”Pusha T — “Hear Me Clearly”
Coinciding the new track, Push paid a visit to Steven Colbert’s “The Late Show” to perform his single “Diet Coke” live Thursday night (March 3). Standing in between a blizzard of snow machines, Push really had a “snow fight” on stage — enjoying every moment and reasserting his stake as one of the most resurgent and relavent artists of our generation.
With three singles in the books, I Know NIGO is already poised to be a moment for hip-hop, as both fans and artists alike will look back on the designer-curated project as “legendary” in its own right.
