Pusha T Joins Forces With Wrestler Ric Flair for New Single
When it comes to sheer trash-talking ability, professional wrestlers are perhaps the only people on the planet with skills comparable to rappers.
That explains why legendary grappler Ric Flair fits in so nicely on ‘What Dreams Are Made Of,’ the latest offering from Pusha T.
Released today (Oct. 24) and slated to appear on the Clipse rhymer’s first solo effort, the ‘Fear of God 2: Let Us Pray’ EP, due out Nov. 8, the tune opens with Flair bragging about his Rolexes, diamond rings and limousines, setting the stage for Pusha to take the mic and do some bragging of his own.
“Yacht owners, you small-ballin’,” the Virginia crack-rap stalwart spits. “That’s Pop Warner.”
Elsewhere, taking full advantage of producer VIPS’ spooky swirling synths and terse beat, Pusha raps about skipping jail, rocking thousand-dollar kicks and generally living large.
“I’m what dreams are made of,” the chorus goes.
Despite Pusha’s penchant for self-aggrandizing, he lets Flair have the final boast.
“Whether you like it or don’t like it, sit down and look at it, because it’s the best going today,” the self-styled “Nature Boy” says. “Woo!”
