Nearly a week after releasing his latest album, It’s Almost Dry, Pusha-T has delivered the menacing visuals for his song “Call My Bluff.”
Push took to Twitter to share an ominous teaser for the video ahead of its release.
The visuals for “Call My Bluff” further solidify Push’s place as a real-life rap supervillain. The rapper’s menacing smile and Pharrell’s foreboding production makes for a song that is just as unnerving as the visuals. As Pharrell told Complex, he introduced Push to Joker and helped infuse that maniacal DNA into the album.
“For me, I’ve known who Arthur Fleck was all my life,” Pharrell says of how push embodies Joaquin Pheonix’s portrayal of the Joker. “It’s him. That’s who the fuck he is. He’s really that. And he hadn’t seen Joker. That’s the funny thing. I had to get him to watch it. He hadn’t even seen [the movie], and when I got him to watch it. I was like, ‘Bro, you know this is you, right?’ And at first, he thought I was kidding. I had to tell him I wasn’t kidding. He’s watching the shit that he does, and he’s like, ‘Oh, this is me.’”
Speaking of Pharrell, his Something in the Water music festival is returning this year and will take place in Washington DC from June 17 to 19. The festival will feature performances from Pusha, 6lack, Lil Baby, Blxst, Saba, Run the Jewels, Syd , Teyana Taylor, Tyler, the Creator, EarthGang, and many more.
