It's one thing to remix or freestyle over a classic track, it's another to do so with a member of the original group on board.
A few weeks back, loyal New Yorker Dave East gave tribute to some of his city's most respected veterans, The L.O.X., with a multi-part freestyle called "Living Off Xperience," and today, he's back to pay homage to another great Northeast combo.
Last we heard from Sonnie Carson, he was rapping over a Heatmakerz beat with Vado on "Come On". The rapper is currently preparing his Most Likely To Succeed mixtape, and he's now shared a track with yet another New York rapper, The Lox's Styles P.
Fred The Godson flips an unlikely sample on his new track, taking Shakira and Wyclef's "Hips Don't Lie" (also used briefely on Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz's Déjà Vu), and turning it into a hard NY anthem.
New York up-and-comers Dave East and Maffew Ragazino join forces on the former's new track "2 Glock 9z". Dave delivers two hard-hitting verses, as well as a powerful hook, while Ragazino comes through with the closing verse. Quotable lyrics:
One of the highlights from Troy Ave's recent White Christmas 2 mixtape gets the CDQ treatment. Now shed of its DJ Drama tags, "Lost Boyz" finds TRoy and 2 Chainz doing some street-storytelling over a squeaky soul sample.

Cipha Sounds and Drewski grab verses from Maino, Bodega Bamz, Chinx Drugz, Troy Ave, Mack Wilds and City Boy Dee for a freestyle over Noreaga's "Banned From T.V." Lil Wayne famously went in over the beat on his No Ceilings mixtape. Who went the hardest?
