Pusha T remixes Drake and Meek Mill’s “R.I.C.O.,” premiered on Dre’s “The Pharmacy.”
Remember “R.I.C.O.” — the Dreams Worth Than Money single that fizzled soon after Meek Mill decided to reveal that Drake’s verse on the track was actually written by a unknown rapper by the name of Quentin Miller? Well, the track has now been remixed by none other than Pusha T, who happens to have his own beef with Drake. The collab was just played on Dr. Dre’s radio show, “The Pharmacy,” on Beats 1, and it comes just over two months after Push jumped on a track with the alleged ghostwriter.
Somewhat surprisingly, Push doesn’t take any shots at Drake on the new record — it certainly would have been prime opportunity to do so. Instead, he rattles off the quotable d-boy bars he’s best at and uses the track’s title to inspire bars about his former career as a major drug trafficker. He opens the track by saying, “King Push on the way.”
The remix is just under 1:30, and though we’d like a couple more verses, this beat was made for Pusha, and the verse he drops off is worth repeat listens.
