Pusha T is keeping his momentum going by releasing his second song of the week featuring Ms. Lauryn Hill.
The track, called “Coming Home,” was produced by Kanye West and Mike Dean. “It speaks to just giving hope to those who are coming home and telling people who are locked up and behind the wall that we waiting on them, and we going to be out here as a support system when they get home,” Pusha shared in an interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.
Pusha also expressed how happy it was to work with Hill on the song. “I just made the request. She expressed that she likes my music, and she’d see about it,” he revealed. “It was just super important to me to definitely have her on it. Lauryn, her discography, it means everything. It’s insane, so this wasn’t about ever rushing or being on a time limit. It was just about getting the song done right and to both of our liking.”
The artist isn’t just rapping about the criminal justice system. He’s also putting effort towards making a change. Pusha recently announced that he is collaborating with Brittany K. Barnett’s Buried Alive Project and MiAngel Cody’s The Decarceration Collective to launch the Third Strike Coming Home Campaign. The initiative will work to free people serving life in prison today under the much-criticized “3 Strikes” anti-drug law. Pusha has already donated $25,000 to the campaign.
“Coming Home” follows the release earlier in the week of Pusha’s song, “Sociopath” featuring Kash Doll. That track was unused on the rapper’s recent album Daytona.
