Next week, Bandcamp is going to shine some light on a new album by Tampa rapper Pusha Preme, who’s giving local fans a chance to hear Hate Saying Goodbye in person at this album release on Friday, Sept. 2 at New World Brewery where he’s joined by one of the best duos in Florida (Katara and Perception), plus a host of party-starting hip-hop acts.

A lot of good has happened in the Preme camp over the last year—tours, appearances at Gasparilla Music Festival and Mischief Mondays, TV spots, the birth of his wife’s first child—but there’s been a lot of darkness, too, including the death of his grandma and anxiety about his place in the local scene.

“It seems that for me to be able to succeed in my career I have to say goodbye to something or someone. We all have to do it whether it’s for work or for pleasure, shit even for love,” Preme—one of Creative Loafing Tampa Bay's 22 Rappers to Watch in '22—said.
What’s more is that Preme’s push to do more for the community continues at this show, which doubles as a shoe drive for Metropolitan Ministries (bring your new and gently used kicks to the gig for karma points).
