referencing I'm Your Pusher, 12", Maxi, Spe, 0-21026

Probably one of the 10 most important rap/hip-hop records of all time. At a time when Public Enemy was scaring middle class America (regardless of race) with cuts off "It Takes A Nation..." like "Bring The Noise" and "911 Is A Joke" and N.W.A. was doing the same with "F*** Tha Police," "Pusher" came out and was instantly branded as negative gangsta rap... which was exactly what Ice-T had hoped for. In an appearance on Larry King, when questioned about the song on and what he thought it taught the youth of the day... Ice-T said (paraphrasing here) that he hoped "the youth of today will use the record to school the powers that be... ("Pusher") isn't about pushing drugs - it's about getting high off the music... if anything it's an anti-drug abuse jam... but you've got to listen to the song before you diss it to know that..." Ice-T may have had his problems later (Body Count's "Cop Killer," etc.) but "I'm Your Pusher" was the slap in the face that mainstream America needed to realize that hip-hop was (and is) a helluva lot deeper than the stereotypes it so often is associated with. Props to Ice-T for that.
