Godfather Of Harlem Releases No Patience With Pusha T
The EPIX series Godfather of Harlem has been captivating audiences for weeks as Forest Whitaker tackles the role of Bumpy Johnson. The series follows the true-life story of the Harlem crime boss and his harrowing moments with the police and nefarious street-life characters, and Swizz Beatz was given the responsibility of curating the perfect soundtrack.
We’ve received tracks that have featured artists like Dave East, G Herbo, and Wale, and now Swizz returns with a collaboration with Pusha T. Each track from the Godfather of Harlem soundtrack tackles a different subject, telling a story of its own. On “No Patience,” Pusha takes on the perspective of a drug dealer who lines his pockets by making sure the addicts in his neighborhood stay hooked.
Lyrical Excerpts[Verse 1: Pusha T] They noddin’ and dozin’
They sit there frozen, in awe
The train track scars on their arm
All because the stamp on the bag wasn’t charged
The same thing that took down DeBarge
Get it off the barge, floatin’ through the waterways
Didn’t need Italians, now they got a war to wage
When the product’s pure, you’re the one they oughta pay
Sugar Hill sweet, like his daddy-daughter days, yeugh
The line around the corner like Six Flags
The potency of one of mine equal to six bags
I done watched brothers kill brothers for nick’ bags
The dope, lean, have a nigga parked like a kickstand
I’m the Bump Johnson of rap, Harlem Renaissance
I provide the fix, and y’all live on, son
The secret’s in the mix, I sell it a la carte
I peddle everything you want, motherfucka [Chorus: Swizz Beats] I ain’t got no patience (Patience)
This clip and this barrel guaranteed to make you famous (Goddamn)
Man, we make you brainless
The mask, the gloves, god damn, man, I’m dangerous (C’mon)
