Pusha T was one of the many rappers Kendrick Lamar bodied in his take-no-prisoners verse from Big Sean's 'Control.' But, ever since his Clipse days, Pusha T has always been all business all the time, so it comes as no surprise that Kendrick now appears on the latest single from Pusha's upcoming album, 'My Name Is My Name.'

The clunkily titled new track is 'Nosetalgia.' Over a slippery '70s psych-porn crime-beat, Pusha pounces in first and raps about how good he was at his first job. Kendrick arrives with a similar narrative about becoming his father's dealer but, at the end, he reveals that what he was really pushing were hot verses.

Pusha T's 'My Name Is My Name' is out October 8 through Kanye West's GOOD Music label. In addition to this new Kendrick collab, it was recently announced that the new album will feature collaborations with Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Jeezy, The-Dream, Kelly Rowland, Big Sean, Ab-Liva, 2 Chainz, Future, and Pharrell. Pusha T will only appear alone on two songs on 'My Name Is My Name.'
