Hip hop group Brockhapmton had a very tough week following allegations towards member Ameer Vann. Over Memorial Day weekend, the group revealed that Vann would be kicked out as a result. Because of this departure, they decided to cancel all of their upcoming appearances, including one at Governors Ball in New York City this Saturday. Fortunately, a very suitable replacement was found today.
Grammy-nominated rapper Pusha T has been chosen to replace the group, and the timing couldn't be any better for the New York based rapper. Last week, he released his third studio album Daytona, which has already been called a classic by numerous publications. The album, which was produced by Kanye West, was finished days before its actual release. This is the first of five albums produced by Kanye that will be released over the span of five weeks.
"Infrared," which is the final track on the album, took shots at Drake's rumored ghostwriting with lyrics such as "How could you ever right these wrongs/When you don't even write your songs?" Drake took some time out of his busy schedule to fire back with "Duppy Freestyle" where he states, "Must've had your Infrared wrong, now your head in the beam/ Y'all are the spittin' image of whatever jealousy breeds." This feud between the two started in 2012 following the release of Pusha T's song "Exodus 23:1."
Daytona is the follow up to Pusha T's 2015 studio album King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, which debuted at number 20 on the Billboard Top 200.
On July 31, he'll join Nas and Black Star at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. Tickets are on sale right now to the general public. A proper tour in support of the album will be announced in the near future. You can check out his updated show listing below.
