FatKidsBrotha Revamp Their Bars With “Pusha 2″
Two-9 offshoot FatKidsBrotha, also known as Lightskin Mac 11 and Cartier Dave, have no interest in the fleeting fame that today's rappers seem to be chasing. They'd rather stack paper instead. And the Atlanta by-way-of Detroit duo drop the new banger "Pusha 2" to illustrate just that. Over a blazing Don Cannon-produced beat, the two trade bars to prove that while fame's appeal is temporary, money's pull lasts forever, especially when you're trying to make ends meet.
The duo use this track not only to pay homage to the Pusha Man and continue the conversation of 2014's "Pusha", but also to promote their new project Mad At The World, which is due out later this year. Mad At The World will serve as the follow-up to their 2014 project, Eastside Paradise II, the place where the original "Pusha" found its home.
Mac 11 broke down exactly how and why they decided to revamp the idea of the track when the song premiered.
"The transition from selling drugs, selling clothes, to selling raps definitely inspired this song," he told Mass Appeal when it dropped. "Basically letting all of the 4lifers out there know if you want you gotta go get it. If you know the dangers of pushing use your talents to get what you want in life."
