Pusha T: Show Preview

Pusha T, half of the Virginia coke-rap duo Clipse and the last big-deal signee to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label, works in mysterious ways. This helps explain how he came by his prodigious messiah complex (his first solo full-length, slated for release in July, is called My Name Is My Name): for every forgettable verse or stupid feud, he's got something queasily rapturous up his sleeve, laced with equal parts thuggish charisma and moneyed menace. Brooklyn's Fabolous, meanwhile, could be Pusha's earthbound counterpart: he's only passably convincing as a gangster, much less a vengeful deity, but his lyrical dexterity — based on simultaneously freewheeling and meticulously controlled rhymes that sometimes take multiple passes to fully unpack — is a small miracle. Judging by this tour's namesake single, "Life Is So Exciting," getting both rappers in one place should be a blessing.
