Today's release of Fear of God II: Let Us Pray, the long-overdue solo EP/street mixtape by Pusha T, is just the latest peak in a roller coaster ride of a rap career. Along with his brother Malice, the Clipse scored a certified smash single, were dropped by their label, successfully resuscitated themselves on the internet, and were ultimately embraced by the hipsterati. Just as the buzz started to fade, Pusha T was picked up as a solo artist by Kanye West for his G.O.O.D. music label, received a high-profile cameo on Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and is apparently working directly with Yeezy for the release of his first official full-length. Pusha's reliance on talented collaborators — something his alliance with West has undoubtedly reinforced — allows him to focus purely on rapping, setting him apart from many other artists in the sing-song Drake era.
