The 7th: Pusher

ARTIST: Final Decisions
TITLE: “Pusher”
YEAR: 1973
LABEL: Bump Shop

Without a doubt in my mind, this song is sheer genius. It’s a socially conscious, hard-edged soul song that is as well suited for today as it was in the 70’s. I didn’t know anything about it until I heard it blast through the speakers at one of my favourite record stores in Detroit. I immediately walked straight up to the turntable, eager to add it to my collection. Unfortunately, it was already in the hands of another collector. Damn, oh well. I mentally filed the name of the artist and song in the back of my mind and figured I would come across it at a later date. I stayed in the store and kept digging, and with my luck, the other collector passed on it and I got it. Man, was I happy. Turns out that this joint isn’t very common. I’ve been looking for a second copy ever since with to no avail. Really does prove one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Personally, I think dude fucked up by passing on it. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

    Also, A certain homie (who’s been on Cratery) sampled it on his debut album.
    Not gonna dry snitch though. That’s all you get.

    Do I think dude fucked up by passing on this? Hells no. Now it’s within the crew. And anyone not smart enough to cop it on the spot doesn’t deserve it.
