As we mentioned in our post when Pusha T’s “Cook It Down” hit the web to promote the release of his forthcoming Fear of God mixtape, the track isn’t necessarily his most memorable performance. That’s not to say he doesn’t sound great over the brooding organs and punchy beat from Bun B and Drake’s “Put It Down.” It’s just that we have heard better, such as the recently leaked “Raid.”
That being said, the raw, straightforward visuals for “Cook It Down” enhance Pusha’s autobiographical-mixed-with-braggadocio bars. And, once it’s over, you’re just left wishing that Funkmaster Flex’s rumor of Fear of God coming out this past Monday was actually true. Oh well, the mixtape is due out this coming Monday, March 21. I think we can wait five more days.
