Cormega's just offered up a remix of his single "Industry," and it's some historic shit. Corralling three members of the legendary Queensbridge Juice Crew -- Craig G, Masta Ace and Kool G Rap -- Corm lets some true old heads share their perspective on modern-day hip-hop.
Telling of rap's rise from South Bronx trend to "dominant culture," the Juice Crew members are in full #realtalk mode on this remix. Their qualms are sometimes territory-based, sometimes a bit crotchety, but always well thought-out and wise. Whether you're down with the turn up generation or fiercely opposed to it, these NYC pioneers have valuable knowledge to share.
The Large Professor-produced cut comes from Cormega's recent album, Mega Philosophy.
We got the world fascinated from out a slum move
The dominant culture, corporations rob it like vultures
Dead philosophers, they carvin' the sculptures
We get the broken promises, momentary exposure
Glossy pictures and posters, far from what we supposed to
- Kool G Rap
