Pusha T would possibly presumably maybe presumably provide a precious toll-free quantity in “Call My Bluff,” however the tune and video’s storyline ship a extra rotten peruse at what can happen to those that can presumably maybe presumably sinful the line. The single appears on It’s Practically Dry, which arrived final week.
The Omar Jones & Onda-directed visual opens on a unhappy highway, as a automobile approaches their target: a tied-up, bloodied man making an attempt to lunge away earlier than he is captured. The foreboding, woozy production coupled with Pusha’s relate-tune supply on the nightmarish lullaby opening affords an added aspect of menace to the cautionary fable.
“Callin’ my bluff, gon solution, ‘Hi there’/Provider with a smile after I hand out halos,” he raps. “Shot clock shooters after I level ’em, they move/Now all americans askin’, ‘What came about?’ They know.”
The jarring footage, which contains Pusha T eating a bloody steak in a plastic-draped crime scene subject, is contrasted with him taking half in a lavish dinner celebration.
The single follows previously released tracks, “Neck and Wrist,” that contains Jay-Z and produced by Pharrell; “Weight loss scheme Coke,” produced by West and 88-Keys; and “Hear Me Clearly,” one other Pharrell-produced tune.
At some level of Juneteenth weekend (June 17-19), Pusha T will abolish at Pharrell’s Something in the Water Festival in Washington D.C. The rapper will moreover embark on a North American tour in toughen of It’s Practically Dry subsequent month, with the dart kicking off Would possibly maybe presumably moreover merely 29 in Seattle and wrapping June 23 in Philadelphia.
