With his first album since being named President of G.O.O.D Music, Pusha T delivers a seven-track album that is being dubbed as an early candidate for album of the year. The seven-track body of work features all of the cocaine bars Pusha T fans could ask for with guest appearances from Tony Williams Jr., 070 Shake, Rick Ross and G.O.O.D Music founder, Kanye West.

Aside from the clever wordplay and production, Daytona has attracted attention because of its outro, “Infrared”. On the record, Pusha T responds to Drake’s diss on “Two Birds, One Stone” by rapping, “It was written like Nas, but it came from Quentin/At the mercy of a game where the culture’s missing.” Pusha T didn’t stop there. Later on in the record, Pusha T takes shots at Birdman by rapping, “Oh now it’s okay to kill Baby/Niggas looked at me crazy like I really killed a baby/Salute Ross ’cause the message was pure/He see what I see when you see Wayne on tour/Flash without the fire/Another multi-platinum rapper trapped and can’t retire.”

Pusha T addressed the excitement around his jabs at Drake in an interview with Hot 97 by saying, “If we gone question things, we need to question them and now it’s my turn to question them.” In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Pusha T addressed the Birdman situation by explaining that it’s him simply putting his ideas out into the open. Furthermore, Pusha T said that he had seen Birdman not too long ago and nothing violent or heated occurred.
