WATCH: Pusha T Debuts “Sunshine” on “The Daily Show”

The Virginia Beach rapper also performs the recently released "Crutches, Crosses, Caskets."

On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, rapper Pusha T—formerly of The Clipse—debuted “Sunshine,” the second single from his upcoming King Push — Darkest Before the Dawn: The Prelude. The track finds the Virginia rapper sounding weary as he reflects on Freddie Gray’s death and the relationship between the media and African-American men. “That song was powerful,” Trevor Noah says. “Some of the white people got a bit uncomfortable when you did the Black Power.”

As Pitchfork notes, Pusha T annotated the song’s lyrics on Genius, which you can see here.

He also performed the song “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets,” the video for which dropped yesterday.

Watch both Daily Show performances below.

King Push — Darkest Before the Dawn: The Prelude is out December 18 via Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music.
