Who hasn’t gotten in on the dubby creepiness of sampling Jai Paul’s “BTSTU” yet? Beyonce, Drake – hip-hop biggest artists are lining up to borrow Paul’s tenderly crooned threat (“don’t fuck with me, don’t fuck with me”) and shuddering, bass-heavy beat. One half of The Clipse, frequent Kanye collaborator and G.O.O.D. Music signee, Pusha T, follows in his cohorts’ footsteps with the aptly titled “Don’t Fuck With Me.”
It’s an appropriate sentiment but a weird beat for a diss track, which it is – Pusha deftly criticizes “cat burglars” who steal his ideas and vows to defend his G.O.O.D Music family – but Pusha knows what he’s doing. His even, cucumber-chill delivery takes center stage. Take a listen.
