Jim Jones challenges Pusha T’s inclusion on Billboard and Vibe’s Top 50 Greatest Rappers list. In a recent appearance on the “Rap Caviar” podcast, the “We Fly High” artist acknowledged Pusha T’s skill but questioned his place on the list.
Despite admitting that Pusha T “could rap his a** off,” Jim Jones expressed skepticism about Pusha T’s accomplishments beyond his drug-related content. “What has Pusha T done that puts him in the greatest rappers of all time besides talk about coke that he probably didn’t get himself?” he asked.
Jones also claimed that Pusha T lacked influence in the rap game, arguing that nobody wanted to emulate his style or persona. “Nobody has dressed like him. Nobody wants to be like Pusha T. I don’t remember nothing,” he said.
Furthermore, Jones argued that Pusha T’s music lacked mainstream appeal and failed to resonate with clubgoers. “He’s not pushing no sh*** out here. I would put Big Sean before Pusha T … Bro, you go in these clubs, I don’t know no records they play in the club with Pusha T. They don’t play his sh*** outside.”
Pusha T has not yet responded to Jim Jones’ critique of his career.
