Pusha T has released a brand-new single titled “Coming Home,” featuring the incomparable Ms Lauryn Hill.
The rapper speaks out on systematic black disenfranchisement on the song, which was produced by Kanye West. “I’m speakin’ to the soul of my black native bros / Who ain’t get to go to school like J Cole? / Who ain’t have a silver spoon or a bankroll? / Who weren’t taught the golden rule, but they made due,” he raps.
Hill provides the song with its inspiring chorus, delivering soulful lines about the power of love. “When love’s withdrawn, you hold onto anything / Some do wrong, they have to do anything / But when the void is filled, you stand up to anything / When love is real, you can do anything,” she sings.
The track was released in conjunction with the launch of Pusha’s Third Strike Coming Home Campaign, a collaboration with Brittany K Barnett’s Buried Alive Project and MiAngel Cody’s Decarceration Collective. The initiative “aims to free people serving life in prison under a three strike drug law,” according to Complex.
“Coming Home” is Pusha’s latest release to be produced by West, following “Sociopath” with Kash Doll and his 2018 Daytona album. On the other hand, Hill previously put her own spin on Drake’s “Nice for What,” which samples her 1998 classic “Ex-Factor.”
