Having released his DAYTONA album back in May, Pusha T doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, recently hinting at upcoming projects during an interview with Julie Adenuga on Beats 1 radio.

Up next for the G.O.O.D. Music president is a venture into tech. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pusha has teamed up with tech entrepreneur Summer Watson on a new music app called “Heir.” The new app will allow fans to vote new songs and hip-hop records as good or bad, utilizing a fire and skull emoji voting system. For those users with a good ear, a new digital currency called “Crown” will be rewarded; the digital currency can then be cashed out (once the user saves enough) on exclusive access to an artist’s tour stop or a record release.

“Heir” will also shine a light on emerging artists and allow them to connect with each other and provide feedback. Early access and more information can be found over at “Heir”‘s official website.
