Famed Harlem producer Dame Grease has joined with L.A.'s DJ King Assassin for a big-time collab featuring Sheek Louch, Freeway, and Pusha T.
After dropping his Gorillaween mixtape on Halloween, Sheek Louch is back with a new single, "What's On Your Mind," off his upcoming album, Silverback Gorillas 2.
Troy Ave fancies himself the savior of New York hip-hop, and while the Internet has been intent on lampooning him for the underwhelming sales of his debut album, fellow NYC rappers seem to be supportive of his movement.
DJ Kay Slay recently unveiled an all-Brooklyn collab with Fame, Maino, Troy Ave, Papoose, and Uncle Murda, and now he's back with some even bigger NYC stars, from Queens and Staten Island, Raekwon and Prodigy.
Outside of Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj, you'd be hard pressed to find a couple who are more talented on the mic than Remy Ma and Papoose. The veteran husband-wife team haven't appeared on a track together since Remy got out of jail last summer, until today.
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.
