Pusha T’s new seven-song album Daytona, produced by Kanye West, debuted on Friday and immediately began pushing life into the internet.
Pusha’s drug-rap style, finessed in Clipse, is there on Daytona but his bars have gotten even tighter, floating on West’s found melodies, samples, and beats. The internet has been feeling the surge of emotions that comes with listening to the “king of the ovenware,” and the cocaine memes are in.

There were also reactions to some of the album’s disses; Pusha takes a few swipes at Drake for allegedly having a ghostwriter.
The release is not without controversy: The album cover is a 2006 photo of Whitney Houston’s bathroom that once was on the cover of The National Enquirer, which West allegedly bought for $85,000. Pusha says the cover represents “organized chaos” and fits with the album’s vibe, but that West also told him to change the album artwork at the last minute because “he wasn’t feeling it.”
