Flashback Friday: Pusha T and S.O.S. Band

I know it’s not officially summer, but y’all go out and tell the sun yet. This heat is downright oppressive so I’m just gonna make an executive decision and say that summer is indeed here. And here are a couple of summer joints for the occasion.


Pusha T, Daytona (2018)

Remember last year’s GOOD Music blitz, where Kanye (allegedly) delivered one new album every week for roughly a month? Reviews of that rollout and the subsequent music were mixed at best but the series’ real gem was Pusha’s DAYTONA. From his massacre of rival Drake to Whitney Houston’s filthy bathroom being depicted on the cover, this set was dripping in controversy. But at the end of it all, only the music will stand tall. And this one stands as Pusha’s best solo work.

The S.O.S. Band, One the Rise (1983)

S.O.S. Band just screams summertime, so with the temperate hovering around Playa Please these days, there’s no better time to revisit the classics. Of all their albums, it’s their 1983 effort that sticks closest to me. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were in a zone crafting these hits – most of them standing the test of time.
