Divine then takes the middle verse with a string of bars delivered in Hindu before Pusha T closes it off by highlighting some of the differences between the poor and rich class in the world. The trio’s new track is set to appear in the upcoming Netflix film, White Tiger which debuts on the streaming platform next Friday, January 22.

Both Pusha T and Vince Staples’ last albums came in 2018. The former’s project was his Daytona release, which was centered in controversy and helped escalate tensions between him and Drake. Last year, he teased not one, not two, but three projects in the works with production from Madlib, The Neptunes, Kanye West, and Tyler The Creator spread out amongst them. As for Vince, his FM! album from 2018 was a rather concise project that was still met with positive reviews. It’s the hope that he too will make their returns to the music world in 2021 having laying low for the past year and a half.
