The Artist: Pusha T
The Mixtape: 2011's Fear of God
Why It Didn't Live Up To The Hype: To be fair here, Fear of God is dope. Really dope, in fact. But, after years of us begging Pusha to release a solo project, we somehow expected even more from this. It was only released four months ago but it feels like longer than that—and with Pusha already pushing a new Fear of God 2 EP featuring a host of new tracks, it seems like he wasn't 100 percent happy with the way the original mixtape turned out, either. Like we said, this project was dope, but it wasn't as dope as it probably could have—or should have—been.
