"Tush", censored as the alternate title "Push", is the first single by Ghostface Killah off the album The Pretty Toney Album and features vocals by Missy Elliott. The song samples "Naked Truth" by The Best of Both Worlds.

Lyrical content

While the song is explicitly about sex, the song shows both Missy and Ghost in top form[1] armed with complex lyrics, clever word play, and fast tempo delivery. Both of which being a staple of the duo's previous solo outputs.


"Tush" was the subject of many mixed reviews. One reviewer felt the song helped Ghostface's push into the mainstream,[2] while others felt the clean, over-production was at odds with Ghost's irrepressible street credibility.[3]
