Jay Z stans are geeking over the return of Hov’s signature coke-filled verses with the release of last night’s “Drug Dealer’s Anonymous,” which will appear on Pusha T’s forthcoming album, King Push. But what made the 46-year-old rap mogul turn back the clock? Pusha T linked with Genius to share the chain of emails that lead to the Sean Carter feature, but it didn’t stop there. The newly appointed G.O.O.D. Music president revealed a new compilation album is in the works, aptly titled Cruel Winter. “I was coming to Los Angeles to work on the G.O.O.D. Music album and play Kanye some new things I’d been working on,” Pusha told Genius on Tuesday. “I played him ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’ and I said, ‘I want Hov on this.’ He was like, ‘Oh man. That would be fire.” Pusha then sent Jay an email with the track and his verse, and the exchange went a little something like this:

The news reporter that called you a 14-year drug dealer, this was the inspiration behind it. Here’s my verse. I left some extra beat for you. Let me know what you think either way.

WTF? Why you taking me to a dark place? Now I’m going to grow my hair out to be on this track with you…

Man, there’s nothing wrong with telling ghost stories. We need them. We love them. We love these things.

After a break in the communication, during which Jay likely began crafting his verse, he hit Pusha back.

Oh this is going to be bad. Oh this is going to be real, real bad. I’ll just blame it all on you.

Ok, that’s fine.

Jay takes the night to finish his verse and responds the next morning.
