A lot of rappers and fakers may be seeing red after listening to Pusha T‘s newest one, “M.F.T.R. (More Famous Than Rich).” King Push is on the Boi-1da-produced single talking his sh*t and calling out liars for faking their riches, including broke artists who happen to be “the biggest rappers in the game.” Even “b*tches f*ckin’ promoters” catch a stray for “still driving a Focus.” Tyga also gets a name drop, but no disses. Pusha calls the rapper “a genius” for cuffing a barely legal teeny bopper from a family reportedly worth $300 million.
Push premiered Darkest Before Dawn‘s second single on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program and spoke on his thought process behind the unapologetic record. “I feel like a lot of people are in positions where they act a certain way or they’re acting like their lifestyle is so grandiose,” said the newly-appointed music exec. “It always comes full circle and people understand that it’s not like that.”
The Virginia native went on to explain how Instagram plays a significant role in folks deceiving the public, saying, “Even on social media, you got these people living these super wild lives, well, you think they’re living these lives, and it be like, Instafake.” Push said he felt compelled to speak on the fugazi-ness of the industry because being more famous than rich isn’t why he started rapping. “The music game has been about being able to provide for my people and provide opportunities for my people. It’s about flourishing. I just felt like I needed to speak on it.” Tabernacle!
