As with any hip hop appearing in this space, my musings will be less verbose than the subject matter, and focused on the other half of the equation. Two and a half seconds into the opening "Brambleton" my curiosity was piqued, hooked by that slinking beat. The following track cut even deeper, and the majority of the ensuing songs held my ear close. It's Almost Dry is classic Pusha T, which is to say, it's him, but also a perfect meld of two producers who have been in his corner for the long haul: Pharrell and Kanye. 

King Push has been working with the Neptunes since he and his brother made waves as Clipse in the early aughts. Mr. West has been on board since 2010. Now on this fourth solo LP, Terrence LeVarr Thornton splits the difference and takes half a dozen tracks apiece from the two legends who've made names for themselves behind the mic, but are better at doing what they originally came to fame for, and do oh so very well here: dropping beats. 

Whether or not Pusha T wanted the album to be a competition between the super producers, it brought out the best in all involved. The title refers to Push requesting patience while he attempts to create his masterpiece. I'll take that analogy over one of a well. I'll also welcome whatever the MC does next in his stellar career.
