With just seven tracks spanning 21 minutes, Pusha T’s addicting drug-laced rhymes earned him a Grammy nomination for DAYTONA. While responding to TIDAL EVP Tony Gervino who admired his “The Games We Play” song three years after the 2018 album’s release, Pusha believes he’s aging like fine wine and is only getting better with time at 44 years old.
“First of all, I was listening to this just a second ago… Secondly, I’m so much better now than I was then,” King Push confidently answered.

Pusha T has continually teased his DAYTONA follow-up throughout 2021 which is expected to arrive with about 12 tracks before 2021’s out. The Virginia native also believes he’s going to have the best album of the year when it’s all said and done.
“I’m going to have the best album that drops in 2021 for sure,” Pusha declared in a March interview with Mr. Biddy Barnes’ Behind the Velvet Rope.
While putting the finishing touches on the effort, Pusha T reunited in the studio with his longtime collaborators in the legendary production duo The Neptunes. A photo surfaced last week of Pusha at the mic with Pharrell and Chad Hugo behind the boards.
