On Untouchable, Pusha T reminds us of his life before rapping.
The song immediately calls to mind those coke-slinging days: the danger, the highs, the darkness hovering just below the surface. Pusha T’s lyrics stab over a sparse and haunting Timbaland beat, while a Biggie sample thunders around him.
However, the song feels almost fragile – the glass-like, dissonant loop and Pusha T’s meditative lyrics make it feel like his midnight musings. Let’s hope the coming dawn is just as gripping.
