Why do we like this?

Since Lord Willin', The Clipse have been one of my favorite hip-hop duos. Even when I had trouble reconciling their subject matter with my own inclinations, their wordplay and beat choices always drew me in. When the two brothers took a hiatus after two amazing albums and an uneven third, I pretty much wrote them off. No offense to Malice, but I've never been into Christian rap, and Pusha seemed to somehow be duller without having the introspective contrast of his brother by his side.

Then Pusha joined Kanye and the crew over at GOOD music. He had a few verses that sounded hype, but I had yet to get the adrenaline rush of "Virginia" or "Keys Open Doors." Then "Numbers On The Boards" came out. Goddamn... this is that shit.

It starts first and foremost with the beat. Produced by 'Ye but sounding very much influenced by the lo-fi loops of Madlib, the low-end heavy beat is deceivingly simple. Pusha T talks the usual greasy talk, but rides the beat oh-so-confidently that he could be rapping the phone book and the track would still get spun back a few times.

If this is any indication of his GOOD music debut, I'm intrigued.
