Listen: Kanye West & Pusha T ‘New God Flow’

It might sound like the title of an upcoming psychological anime movie, but ‘New God Flow’ is in fact the name of Kanye West’s latest collaboration with fellow rapper Pusha T.

The track is most likely a part of the upcoming compilation by West’s record label GOOD Music, Cruel Summer, but since the tracklisting is yet to be released, let’s just say we’re 90% sure.

Debuted in a single verse during Sunday’s BET Awards, the track has since proved to be an interesting number, and proves that West isn’t totally subject to the new, club-friendly scene. There’s certainly more emotion on show here, but mixed in with a good degree of the West-brand boasting that has come to define the artist (and what else would we expect from a self-proclaimed ‘godly’ sound) - ”I ain’t tryin’ to stunt man, but these Yeezy’s jumped over the Jumpman”.

Pusha works to keep this up with his opening two verses, cementing his place as a solid part of the upcoming, August 7 release –  ”I came aboard for more than just to rhyme with him, think ’99, when Puff woulda had Shyne with him” and “I believe there’s a God above me, I’m just the God of everything else”.

Showing some experimentation, the track’s end shifts to an ‘I don’t know what I’ve been told’ military call-and-response, proclaiming the coming of GOOD Music. Rappers, armies and … shoes – Kanye certainly seems keen to demonstrate just how much his tunes are capable of covering, and what he is indeed a ‘god’ of.
