tumblr_mtslmp0Qov1qlityfo1_1280On his new album, My Name Is My Name, in stores now, G.O.O.D. Music Golden Child Pusha T spits unpolished, unapologetic cocaine bars over menacing and haunting production. He is uncompromisingly King Push throughout the album; although he is now a solo artist, the brash and cocksure demeanor that made him the perfect foil to his brother No Malice’s conscientious and calculated delivery is still on full display. This is the Pusha we’ve grown to know and love over his decade long run of drug rap dominance. Except for on one track, the Kelly Rowland-assisted “Let Me Love You.” Track number 8 on MNIMN sounds nothing like the Terrence Thornton we’re used to. His enunciated growl is replaced by a syrupy, melodious flow. The barbaric baritone is gone and in it’s place a sing-songy drawl. The song is an obvious homage to late-90s rap phenom Ma$e. The impression that Pusha does, especially on the second verse, is so spot-on that to the untrained ear you might even think that Ma$e himself is featured on the track. In light of Pyrex P’s immaculate imitation of the Harlem rapper-turned-reverend-turned-rapper-again, we’ve compiled a list of rappers sounding just like other rappers, some by design like Pusha and some without even trying.
