Directly following the release of his “Sociopath” record with Kash Doll, Pusha-T is serving up another high-profile new single. This time around, the Clipse legend is linking up with Lauryn Hill and Mike Dean for a track titled “Coming Home.” Like “Sociopath,” “Coming Home” also boasts production from Kanye West, and is also being used to build anticipation for Push’s next major studio project.
“This record speaks to mass incarceration,” Pusha-T explained to Ebro Darden, breaking down his latest record for an exclusive Beats 1 interview. “It speaks to just giving hope to those who are coming home and telling people who are locked up and behind the wall that we waiting on them, and we going to be out here as a support system when they get home.”
Pusha-T also used today’s conversation with Ebro to reveal the back-story behind getting Lauryn Hill to work with him on “Coming Home.” “I just made the request. She expressed that she likes my music, and she’d see about it,” he shares. “I definitely followed the queen around every- Whatever it took, and it was super important to me when she showed interest. It was just super important to me to definitely have her on it. Lauryn, her discography, it means everything. It’s insane, so this wasn’t about ever rushing or being on a time limit. It was just about getting the song done right and to both of our liking.”
