Yesterday Pusha T introduced his next single to the world via a spin at dancehall legend Bounty Killer‘s Sunday night dance in Kingston, of all places (watch the video clip after the jump). Which makes a heap more sense when you realize that the tune is a combination with dancehall’s rookie of the last few years Popcaan, as we did when LargeUp posted the brand new track earlier today. Jesse Serwer has the story–read below and then hit the link at bottom to stream the Pusha T and Popcaan collabo “Blocka.”
Clipse/G.O.O.D. Music rapper Pusha T has been known to spend his Sundays quoting gunman lyrics, drop references to dancehall classics like Nardo Ranks’ “Burrup,” and generally give Jamaican music his full respect. We’d heard that the MC recently visited yaad to shoot a video and link with the Warlord at Bounty Sundays but it looks like he’s come back with more than that. In what is definitely the highest-profile (and perhaps most brief) cameo to emerge thus far in his career (we’re still waiting for his Snoop Lion feature), Popcaan gets a look on Pusha’s new G.O.O.D. single “Blocka,” produced by Chicago’s Young Chop and also featuring Travis Scott.
