Long time coming, Sam Cooking up these bars

from Pusha T (Ft. Diddy) – Changing of the Guards Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Pusha’s prominence is long overdue, like the change Sam Cooke sings of.

Also, “long time coming” is a straight quote from the song
“A Change Is Gonna Come” which became one of the Civil Rights Movement’s anthems, so Pusha might be saying that his recent rise as a solo artist is just and by all accounts, necessary for the advancement of the Rap game.
