Papoose and DJ Premier come together to "Hold The City Down".

New York might not be the ruling rap hub it was in the 90s, but it doesn't mean artists still aren't repping it the same way. Papoose and DJ Premier will always put on for their city, and today they've come together to do just that.

"Hold The City Down" upholds New York rap traditions, with Papoose bringing gritty, precise lyricism to Premier's hard boom bap drums and signature sample scratching on the chorus. The song will appear on the NBA 2k16 soundtrack, which has been curated by DJ Mustard, DJ Khaled, as well as Premier himself. Look out for the full OST to drop soon.

Quotable Lyrics:
Victory is my objective
I don't have to pretend
Spread my wings like an eagle
And let them flap in the wind
No git, no glory, no pain, no gain
These are actions of men
