Pusha T – Exodus 23:1



 

Blrrrrrrrr… what happened to that boy?  This might be the question everyone asks of Lil Wayne’s career if he does not leave Virginia rapper Pusha T the h-e-l-l-Ohhh alone!   The official ‘Exodus 23:1’ video just released to remind everyone of how real the Clipse’s legacy is.

“Beef is best served like steak / Well done, get a gun in your face, b–ch ni-ga” raps Push to open the track.

Standing in the same hoods of Virginia he grew up in, the ‘Grinding’ emcee still holds power there apparently.   Showcasing the grimey reality of some parts of the Norfolk, VA community, his gang stands behind him as he performs the “Exodus 23:1” diss to Lil Wayne.  Gang members, drug addicts, and normal neighbors are all a part o the visual.  The video even gets so grim a crackhead can be seen using an aluminum soda can to smoke a rock.

The visual is like a stimulus to Lil Wayne. It’s a reminder from Pusha T to show he really lived the life of a wildstyle, street cocaine cowboy before rap and his lyrics are not made up.   Push lets the entire Young Money/Cash Money team know the difference of an industry rapper who’s written gangster lyrics to stay relevant and one who’s writing about their real life.

A legendary diss track, the lyrics are just as scatching as the visual.

“Contract all f–ked up / I guess that means you all f–ked up / You signed to 1 n-gga / That’s signed to another n–ga / That’s signed to 3 nigg-s / now that’s bad luck / Damn that sh-t… evens the odds now / you better off serving this hard now” raps Pusha T in the track, going in detail to expose chinks in Wayne’s armor.

A song and video that will likely stand the tests of time in Hip Hop culture, Wayne may never recover from this if he cannot properly disassemble Push’s image in the same way.
