Pusha T last blessed the world with an album with 2018’s Daytona, fully produced by Ye aka Kanye West. The king of coke bars is back with a new track titled “Diet Coke,” reuniting with Yeezy and 88-Keys, and already it appears to be a Twitter favorite.
After a snippet of the track began circulating online by way of Victor Victor Worldwide boss Steven Victor, the hype around the track began to bubble. Most were stunned to see that Pusha T and Ye were together in the clip after chatter that Push was no longer involved with the G.O.O.D. Music label, but those rumors were shut down last month.
In the wee hours of Tuesday morning (Feb. 8), “Diet Coke” went wide with Push and 88-Keys having a lot of fun on Twitter engaging with fans and discussing reactions. Push even took a dig at himself after Spotify’s Carl Chery tweeted, “Pusha T coming up with new coke references will never get old.”
Push fired back with, “Welp this album is abt feeding the conscious mind, I hope you aren’t disappointed…I’m growing up Carl.”
Suffice it to say, “Diet Coke” mostly references the narcotic of note during the addictive chorus from Push but much of the track is just the Virginia rapper flexing his verbal muscles.
From “Diet Coke”:
The flow’s untouched, the drums is tucked
Drive Cullinan when roads get rough
Snows are must, the nose adjust
Young Gs like we Hov and Puff
Best jewelry and hoes we lust
Chanel trinkets and hoes’ll blush
Crush hearts like pretty boys
And we drivin’ pretty toys
Extendos will make plenty noise
You get the picture.
