DAYTONA was one of my favorite listens from the year - Pusha T's lyrical talent combined with Kanye's production made for an airtight 21 minutes of music. Every song felt like everyone involved with the album gave it their all, from the production to Push's aggressive, arrogant delivery. The transition from Come Back Baby to Santeria probably had to be my favorite part of the whole album, as Push seamlessly went from his relaxed, boisterous raps on a soul beat to speaking to his deceased manager on a hard trap beat. 070 Shake's feature was immaculate as always, with her incredible vocal talent adding a lull to the storm of lyrics. However, some of the album felt one dimensional at times, as the topic matter focused solely on drug dealing and passive-aggressive shots seemingly aimed everywhere. Hard Piano was a particularly weak part of the album, carrying Push's weakest lyrics on the entire album - "Never trust a bitch who finds love in a camera / She will fuck you, then turn around and fuck a janitor" wasn't the best entrance into yet another drug-dealing rap scared about modern times. Rick Ross was the weakest link on the album, trying to be intimidating but just ending up sounding goofy next to Pusha T. More thematic variety and taking Ross off the record would've made this an instant classic.
