Kanye West has an unimpeachable record of releasing new tracks at award shows. In 2008, leading up to 808s and Heartbreak, he dropped the drum-heavy "Love Lockdown" at the VMA's. Two years later, he was back with G.O.O.D Music cohort Pusha-T debuting the genre-bending "Runaway." The moment was undeniably huge and the highlight of the night. At the BET Award's on Sunday, Kanye & Pusha linked up again and released a cut from Cruel Summer, the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music collabo album. It's a far-cry from Kanye's soulful sounds, seeing the Chicago M.C. spitting over a clobbering drum beat. Entering on a Ghostface Killah sample, Pusha-T snarls through his verse, sounding more devilish than God-like. Kanye bids farewell to Whitney Houston, claims to be living the dream of Rodney King, and hilariously re-interprets Full Metal Jacket's "I Don't Know," scene. "From most hated to champion God flow, I guess that's a feeling only me and LeBron know," he quips. With tracks like these, G.O.O.D. Music proves that in a Summer filled with heat, no rap label is hotter.
