This right here is what the people needed new Nas feat Mobb Deep with a rejuvenated P on his gully shit. I swear it’s almost like the Neo-Classical movement in art where people rebelled against all the doilies and ornamentation of the Rococo and Renaissance and just wanted the rebirth of reality and natural lines, except with guns …and dog shit…and bitches.
Via some random tweet i saw today and was too hyped to credit…sooo…yeah thanx dude
Apollo The Great feat. Sean Price - “Struggle No More”
This is that Timberland’s and Black hoodie music, single (Loosie) Newport from the bodega rap. The kinda song that merits more than a couple rewinds. With the way Hip Hop has shifted from street corners and real life to strangeness and pop like glamor grammar, its good to see songs like struggle no more put it all back into perspective.
The same formula that defines real hip hop is embedded in its DNA. Boom bap, well crafted lyrics and subject matter with relevance. Quality has no expiration date and this here is quality music. Sean Price (P!) on the assist is not a bad look either.
