When Pusha T announced that he would be releasing the first part of a two-part album series fans knew they were going to be in for a treat.

Recently, Darkest Before The Dawn: The Prelude was made available with three of the 10 tracks already available for download.

The tracklist for Darkest Before The Dawn: The Prelude can be found below and there are two tracks in particular that have the potential to be instant classics with fans.

While we are going strictly off of the features in the two tracks, it's not far off to think that they can be the defining tracks on the album.

The first of the two is the most obvious "M.P.A.," featuring Kanye West, A$AP Rocky and The-Dream. Pusha T has elected to use The Dream on multiple tracks as the two blend very well together.

The Dream's ability to sing catchy hooks while appealing to the raw nature of Pusha T's songs is second to none.

Then there is the younger generation of rap being brought into the mix with A$AP Rocky.

Rocky's album, AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP is among one of 2015's top albums and his style of rap has appealed to millions of fans who will surely be looking forward to his verse on "M.P.A."

Finally there is Mr. Kanye West himself. Fans have been anticipating West's Swish album for quite some time now and while there isn't a concrete release for Swish, a new verse from west should hold fans over until there is.

It's not just "M.P.A." that fans should be looking out for, "Keep Dealing" also features one of the most seasoned rappers who came up alone with the likes of Jay-Z. That man is Beanie Sigel.

Sigel was one of the rawest rappers in the 90's and early 2000's.

If there is anyone that can bring additional realness to a track it's Sigel and we're predicting "Keep Dealing" will be a sure fan favorite when Darkest Before The Dawn: The Prelude releases next Friday, December 18.
