TDE Punch praises Jay-Z’s new verse: “Celebrating mediocrity stops now”

Pusha T and Jay-Z’s new collab “Neck And Wrist” doesn’t disappoint.

Pusha T has confirmed a new collaboration with Jay-Z and he delivered this morning. Six years after their last connection on “Drug Dealers Anonymous”, they served more coke bars with the release of “Neck And Wrist”. Produced by Pharrell, who also contributes vocals, the song is the second official single from Push’s upcoming album due out this spring.

Jay’s verse to “Neck And Wrist” extends his streak of verses over the past year, but there’s an argument to be made that this is his best verse over the past 12 months. TDE’s Punch praised Jay-Z who he said set a new bar. “Jay Z is THE GOAT,” he wrote. “Not a goat but THE GOAT…I can’t listen to this man’s verses and then listen to what’s going on now and say it’s fine. Celebrating mediocrity stops now.”

Pusha T would probably agree with that sentiment. The rapper previously explained that Jay-Z is an artist he values ​​as a collaborator because he’s able to say things he can’t. During a recent interview with Complex, Push also dubbed Jay-Z the best coke rapper in the game, followed by himself and Jeezy.
