Pusha T & Rick Ross Join Forces For a Street Anthem About Hard Choices (Audio)
Now that he’s an official Maybach Music Group artist, rapper Tracy T has enlisted two major heavyweights to deliver his biggest look yet. “Choices” features Pusha T and Rick Ross and is featured on Tracy’s forthcoming LP, Millionaire Nightmares. As the title suggests, the record centers around life’s many options and the paths presented to us at any given moment. The YG Beats-produced single places the newcomer at bat first, followed by King Push and Rozay, both of whom supply swaggering
Push begins his verse by suggesting that the only thing separating him from those with less success is ambition, rapping “everybody got choices/even playing field, could have all had Royces.” He separates himself from those coming up in the game now, saying “young n***** ain’t playin’ and their aim ain’t the best,” before Ross begins to bellow his own street-hustler perspective. “All black when I deal with these accountants/off balance, then you fuck with my allowance/all facts, I’ll get you whacked for a thousand,” he boasts.
In speaking with Billboard, Decatur, Georgia’s Tracy T says the song was inspired based on his having “a choice to suffer and struggle or to hustle” before adding “me seeing other people’s mistakes or struggles, I realized I had the choice to get out and that made me a man. chose to put a lot of the bulls–t to the side and went hard with music.” With the February 24 release date of Millionaire Nightmares fast approaching, time will tell if the choices he’s made thus far are the right ones.
