DJ Absolut is here with a new track for anybody who's been missing the gritty feel of New York hip-hop. Absolut is back with his new single, "World Records" which features Common, Vado, Joell Ortiz and Mobb Deep's Havoc. It's a hard-hitting track that finds each artist flexing their lyrical muscles to the fullest. Joell, Havoc, and Vado deliver cold, New York flows while Common delivers an introspective verse. It's a dope collaboration and hopefully, it isn't the last that Absolut has in the vault.

DJ Absolut's relationship with Havoc goes way back. In fact, Absolut's been the main reason why there have been so much unreleased Mobb Deep tracks that have surfaced in the past year or so. Keep your eyes peeled for more music from Absolut as well as from Common, Havoc, Joell Ortiz and Vado.

Quotable Lyrics
Cold weather, I know that we should know better
Pour liquor for our young, like they our ancestors
Transgressions, tryna understand lessons
A man's blessings from a father's confessions
