“FRESSHH” as always, Push! Montana delivers “The Next One” from “When Push! Comes To Shove” Vol. 2. Instead of relegating himself to painting pictures of concrete and corners, Push! takes listeners a little closer to home with his signature force added to each word he speaks.
The way slots in the rap game are filling faster than they’re coming open, it’s challenging for artists to elbow their way onto listeners’ radars. We’re not even talking being able to cash in on the art, especially during a time when 64% of Americans can’t pay for a $1000 emergency. With no guarantees or benefits, rap as a career pales in comparison to the idealized version so many of us grew up seeing and I’m starting to think “making it” requires more stamina than skills.
The ones who separate themselves from the pack are either part of the small few who are uniquely talented or the next subgroup of those able to will their way to the forefront. And even though “XXL cover, I got left out,” Montana has been blessed with both of the aforementioned characteristics so his turn is coming, just like so many of us. And much like us, he just has to find a way make it to the next check.
