Pusha T – “Blocka”
Wrath Of Caine
Re-Up Gang/G.O.O.D. Music
As Pusha T prepared to put out his Wrath Of Caine mixtape, billed as his final tune-up before his solo debut album, My Name Is My Name, the first single, “Blocka”, hit the airwaves. With skillful interpolation of his Jamaican alter-ego via Popcaan’s contributions to the chorus, “Blocka” was an instant hit for Ziplock P.
Thanks in large part to one mister Young Chop. Known widely for his production on Chief Keef’s, “Don’t Like”, and Big Sean’s “Mula”, Chop laced Pusha with a heart-pounding backdrop for his drug dealer dialogue, complete with a reverberating bass line and tactfully subdued snares. Wrath of Caine will be remembered as one of 2013’s best mixtapes, and now “Blocka”, for one of the year’s best instrumentals.
