Your Old Droog uses the phrase "skinny MF DOOM" on "Grandma Hips," reminding us that perhaps Droog, who we first met as a heady semi-anonymous weirdo, has more in common with the guy in the mask than Nas, who his voice tends to resemble. The colorful, stream-of-consciousness wordplay on the track, down to its mad-lib title (no pun intented) puts him in the lineage of the post-DOOM underground. Danny Brown, one of the most versatile rap historians adapts perfectly to the bouncy jazz sample, bringing the playful charisma of his interviews to a squeaky, breathless flow.

The song comes off Droog's PACKS project, which he shared on Friday. Stream it here.

For tryna taint the pictures I painted
I just might go start a residency
Pump it out to Grammarcy
Teacher said I was nice with the grammar, see
