If anyone has made major power moves in 2018, it’s definitely King Push. Pusha T has dominated all of 2018 with his latest album, tour, and late night television performances. Not to mention, he dropped one of rap’s best diss tracks in recent memory. With 2018 nearing a close, King Push decided to make one last power move to close out one of the best years of his legendary career.
