Pusha T, one of my favorite rappers on Planet Earth, has teamed up with UK duo Chase & Status for their new single “Machine Gun”. Part of the reason Rap and the EDM music scene can be so cool is due to partnerships like this. It’s like your favorite superheroes teaming up to form the X-Men or the Justice League.
When you take the flow of Pusha and put it on top of a gritty track by the likes of Chase & Status (pronounced stay-tuss), you cannot go wrong. “Machine Gun” highlights the fantastic production that the UK team is capable of, with a Pusha T cherry on top. It’s not overboard in its edginess and gives just the right amount of time and space to Pusha’s lyrics.
Chase & Status’ album “Brand New Machine” comes out October 7th (coincidentally, Pusha’s album should drop Oct 8th). Check out Chase & Status’ new song “Machine Gun” below.
