PUSH! releases a new song strictly for the fans where he reminiscences on his past love, their relationship issues, and the pain he still carries with him on “Memoirs of Kiesha” which is not on his latest project Black Roses. PUSH! sticks to who he is as an artist and best known for by being honest and pouring his real life situations into his music sustaining his place as a relatable music artist.
Earlier this month, Brooklyn’s own, PUSH!, dropped his latest project, Black Roses! The project has 12 tracks including the lead single, Iceman. When this initially dropped and I was not informed, I have to be honest, I felt some type of way. Lol But I caught wind of it and downloaded it immediately. As a fan of PUSH!, I’ve been waiting for this project for a while and anxious for it’s release. Now that it’s out and I’ve been listening to it constantly these past few days, I realize that it was worth the wait.
PUSH! not only gave us all the elements of him as artist that we already fuck with but he showed us another side to him as well. I got a more “emotional” vibe from him in this project. A lot of the songs seemed like confessionals, whether he was talking to his girl, his boys, or even us, the audience. I also heard a battle between love and hate in a sense throughout the project. From a cold blooded song like Iceman to the heartfelt song, Daddy’s Girl, he gives all of his perspectives on love and loyalty.
Black Roses has variety in it, sonically. Yet, there still is a common theme of PUSH! letting us know what truly goes through his mind and I appreciate that he didn’t sugar coat or hold anything back. It’s a well constructed project and I am loving what PUSH! is doing with his artistry right now. But next project, I expect an email about it on the release date, PUSH!!! Lol
People, experience something real and check out Black Roses!
Well the weekend is over… wasn’t the best weekend for me but that’s not important. This weekend was all about PUSH! newest album Black Roses. If you wasn’t playing the new PUSH! your weekend couldn’t have been better than mine and I don’t care if it was. Even after the listening party, I continued to find gems after gems. With only features from Wink Loc and Curt@!n$, you would have thought there were more but PUSH! displayed his versatility by doing the hook on every single track it seems letting his fan base understand that he’s able to change up his style just a little. Daddy’s Girl, B.B.O. and Courtesy of the Mob are perfect examples. PUSH! shows more of a softer side in these tracks by, uplifting and giving praises to all the awesome females; very relate-able. Considering this album was slated to be a 5 track EP just for the ladies I wasn’t too surprised that there would be a couple sentimental tracks.
Good things come to those who wait, and we waited a long damn time for Black Rosesand the highly anticipated project was absolutely worth the wait. Picking up right where Fresh Dopeleft off, PUSH’s second “official” release is yet another masterpiece in the catalog of an artist who is more than just a rapper, he’s a true wordsmith who crafts verses that will have you missing something the first 3 to 4 times, only to catch it on the fifth and have your entire life change. Simply put, Black Roses brilliant.

Ten years ago the mixtape was revived with the success of 50 Cent & G-Unit turning a run of mixtapes into one of the greatest rap albums ever made, Get Rich or Die Tryin’. At the same (damn) time, Cam’ron and The Diplomats were also heavy in the streets with their Diplomats series of tapes that culminated in one of the best double rap albums ever made, Diplomatic Immunity. The formula for the Diplomats was one of a leadership role by Cam’ron, with Jim Jones and Juelz Santana playing front court while a slew of other talented artists known as Dipset came in off the bench to deliver street raps and punchlines over epic production. We look back now and see the classic run that Dipset made and it’s incredible how Killa assembled such a great group of rappers with such chemistry and made such an impact in the game. Fast forward to today and we got one of the best mixtapes out right now consisting of the same formula, only this time instead of Cam and the Dips, it’s Maino and the Mafia, and the comparisons are endless and incredible, while the music is still just as fire.
PUSH! has been on the scene for quite a while. Consistently releasing gritty lyrical heat and never conforming to the mainstream hype. I’d rather let the music speak for itself.
Music recording artist PUSH! (formerly known as PUSH! Montana) has been known to possess an old soul. His upbringing and lifestyle makes his movement authentic and refreshing. With the talent to lyrically paint a picture of a gritty lifestyle that hasn’t been perfectly done since Brooklyn emcee Notorious B.I.G. PUSH! brings honesty, real life experiences and story telling back to Rap music. PUSH!’s ultimate goal is to create classic music and remaining at the forefront of Hip-Hop culture for years to come.
Not many artists are willing to share the spotlight with their assembled crew before (or even after) they properly establish themselves in the market place. That’s not the case for Bed-Stuy Brooklyn product Maino. Though he’s already created a lane of his own—he’ll be quick to tell you, “Never did I say I was the illest on the mic/I only ever said I was the realest nigga right?”—as a platinum-selling artist (“All The Above”), with two championed solo albums under his belt (If Tomorrow Comes… and The Day After Tomorrow), as well as a slew of street-approved mixtapes, Maino still has mountains to climb in his career. He’s aware of that, too. “I still got a lot of things that I want to establish as a solo artist,” he tells XXL on a mid-October afternoon on the eve of a project that clearly hits closer to home than his previous solo releases. “But you know what? This helps me,” he continues, motioning towards the four-man set surrounding him atXXL’s Manhattan offices. Push!, Hustle Hard Mouse (Don’t forget the Hustle Hard), Lucky Don and Twigg Martin all make up Maino’s new collective, who go by the name: The Mafia.
Maino and his Brooklyn cronies are up to no good on this new joint, “What Up, Son?” Along with PUSH! Montana, HustleHard Mouse, and Lucky Don the collective keep it real street on this new joint. Get a listen to the new joint after the jump. Maino’s The Day After Tomorrowis in stores right now, so if you haven’t got it, get it.
