It’s a good thing there are still things in this world that you can rely on. Consistencies like the sky being blue, water wet and Pusha T sounding hard as f*ck over a minimalist Neptunes beat. Luckily, the forthcoming ‘Fear of God Pt. 2′ EP reconnects him with his Virginia brethren, and for it’s first single, one of Chad & Hugo’s most vocal on prominent fans landed a guest spot. I’m talking about OFWGKTA’s Tyler, The Creator, and the cynic in me is prepared for a track simply concocted to send the web in a tizzy by some A&R with a Twitter account. There are critics who shared these expectations, and they were wrong.

Playing the song will quickly shut down the doubters. Though the pair comes from different worlds they share an affinity for these type of beats, know how to handle them, and have a surprising amount of chemistry. There’s talk about weaponry, dinosaur dicks and Tyler hollering ‘West Side!’, all before Pusha has some final words for those aforementioned naysayers:

This is for the critics, who doubted the chemistry
Two different words, same symmetry
And this black art, see the wizardry
When you at the top of your game, you make enemies
You’ll never finish me



1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
