This menacing track finds Pusha T claiming his place at the top and going for his competitors. The Virginia native told MTV News he wants the listener to take literal meaning from the track's title. "I'm here to take everybody's lunch money. I really am," he said. "That's what I feel like I'm doing - it's the spirit of competition, I put out a record like this to make a statement. It's a competitive sport."
Kanye West supplied a noisy, dissonant beat for the track. "That's the type of energy I'm looking for in creating this new King Push album," he said of the track's instrumentation. "It needs to be rebellious and angry. I was trying to go for that, I have expressed that to [Kanye] so many times, so I guess when he was cooking up, this is what he came up with."
"It was a concept Kanye West had, and he knows that when he does these unorthodox tracks, I'm probably gonna be the first one up to bat," Pusha added. "My sensibility with those type of beats– that's just what I'm attracted to. So he played it for me and man I went at it."
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
