Your Old Droog has returned with some New York purist vibes. Coming through with a new freestyle titled "Live From NYC," Droog provides evidence on the thesis that locale and sonic aesthetic go hand in hand. Over a boom-bap beat from Mono En Stereo that screams "golden era," Droog glides effortlessly over a hard-hitting blend of drum and bass. If you're among those who clamor for more "bars," particularly in a non-ironic way, this one should whet the appetite in spades.
On the mic, Droog is as natural as ever, delivering lines like "nowadays everyone's a scammer or extorter, snitches, walk around with a recorder, sounding like investigative reporters" with a refreshing sense of authenticity. Some might lament the ongoing musical shift away from that iconic NYC sound, but Your Old Droog continues to keep tradition alive.
Nowadays everyone's a scammer or extorter
Snitches, walk around with a recorder
Sounding like investigative reporters
