Music review: Pusha T. DAYTONA.

Heralding the approach of Yeezy Season (Kanye's plan to release an album every week through June) Pusha T's DAYTONA suggests it`s time to batten down the hatches.

A masterclass in taut atmospherics and exactitude, its seven tracks drip with portent over a 21-minute duration, thanks to Pusha's scrunch-nosed sneer and dead-eyed drug-trade realism, sprinkled liberally with Mr West's claustrophobic production - Santeria packs Herculean levels of tempo changes into its 3 minutes, while Come Back Baby's samples are warped, ironic, and menacingly articulated via Pusha's virtuoso logorrhea.

G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam. ★★★★
