Interestingly enough, the song is being billed on iTunes as a Kanye song with features from the rest of G.O.O.D. Music. Upon listening though, “Mercy” sounds nothing like a pure Kanye song and is definitely a collaborative work. Lyrically, there isn’t much content here aside from the hearty dose of braggadocio from each rapper, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing when its delivered from rappers as technically talented as these guys are. You can grab it below and be sure to purchase the single on iTunes now.
Here’s a brand new track from Clipse‘s Pusha T titled “What Dreams Are Made Of”, which will be included on Pusha’s forthcoming album Fear of God II: Let Us Pray.

Pusha T ventured into the booth and recorded a new banger over Jai Paul‘s electric joint “BTSTU”, rhyming over the same beat as Drake‘s “Dreams Money Can Buy”. The Clipse rapper argues that no shots were fired on, but it’s pretty obvious that Push has more than a mouthful to share with the world. Perhaps the GOOD Music/Def Jam vs. Young Money feud is really going to heat up now? Check out the song for yourself below.
“No shots… (laughs) but nothing goes unseen.” - Hmm…
“Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords. / Fame such a funny thing for sure when niggas start believing all those encores. / I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour.” - Sounds like Push is going in on Drake here, especially with Drizzy’s sophomore album, Take Care, coming out next month.
Track: ”Trouble On My Mind (feat. Tyler, The Creator)”
Artist: Pusha T
Release Date: July 9, 2011
Label: GOOD Music/Def Jam
Pusha T always has his drugdealer past on his mind (and in his verses), but this time, the Clipse rapper teams up with Odd Future‘s Tyler, The Creator to discuss the trouble on his mind. The first single from Pusha’s upcoming mixtape Fear of God 2: Let Us Pray, “Trouble On My Mind” features simplistic, atmospheric, and ultimately haunting production from The Neptunes and three on-point verses. Pusha spins a story about his troubled past before handing the mic to Tyler, who delivers a maniacal verse in his signature style. The two then split the third verse, with Tyler referencing his highly-successful single, “Yonkers”, and Pusha T closing by addressing the mismatch between himself and Tyler: “This is for the critics who doubted the chemistry/Two different worlds, same symmetry.” Thankfully for us, he’s right; despite the stylistic differences on paper, the collaboration simply works.
“Trouble On My Mind (feat. Tyler, The Creator)” is from Fear of God 2: Let Us Pray, set to be released on August 23, 2011 via GOOD Music/Def Jam.
Eughk! Clipse‘s Pusha T has released another song from his upcoming Fear of God mixtape. This one, the third song released from the mixtape so far, is titled “Cook It Down”. You can listen to it below and if you haven’t already listened to his version of “Lost In The World”, you can do so here.
GOOD Music’s Pusha T (of Clipse) has released his version of Kanye West‘s Bon Iver-sampling “Lost In The World”. The new song will be included on Pusha’s highly anticipated new mixtape Fear Of God. It’s the same Pusha T we’ve grown to love and expect, adding his touch to Yeezy’s masterful beat. Eughk!
